In journey builder I am using API event (as entry source). Whenever the event occurs the Orders DE gets populated that has 2 fields : customer_ID & order_id and then this Orders DE enters into the journey. I have linked Orders DE with Customer DE in Data Designer by creating an attribute group.

My question is how can I send emails in the journey if Orders DE does not have email attribute? Can the journey take the email attribute from Customer DE if its linked in Data Designer ?

You can have CustomerId as the subscriber key relation on the Orders DE. You can link this DE to the contact using Data Designer. On the journey use the below setting to send the email to the address on the 'Customer DE'.
