The bride choosing the fabric but you make your own design - what a fantastic idea. This would be far better than all bridesmaid having to wear the same dress when it obviously suits some people more than others. You both look great.

Thank you for lovely comments. Yes it is common for the family and close friends to use a chosen material for occasions such as weddings and funerals. In Yoruba it is called the ebi or aso ebi which mean family cloth. The bride picks out the ebi but the sewing pattern you choose is up to you which means there are some gloriously individual dresses.

Really interesting! Looking at your photos - did all the guests use the same material? Is that common at Nigerian weddings? You did a great job - did you also make your dress?

I'm impressed piccalizzie! I knew the moment I saw these pics that this was a Nigerian celebration - my husband is from Nigeria and we have been to many Nigerian weddings/celebrations! You did a wonderful job! You two look FANTASTIC! Very nice work!
