Nigerian women love variety when it comes to dressing for weddings and parties. Besides sewing their wedding guest outfits in the popular native-styles using lace, ankara fabrics and others, female wedding guests in Nigeria are often seen to wear englishwear-style short- or midi-gowns to Nigerian weddings. When invited to a wedding and you’re not compelled to wear a uniformed aso-ebi outfit, the English-style short gowns are a smart and elegant option.

With the number of Nigerian fashion designers now making ready-to-wear dresses, female wedding guests are no longer limited to buying their Englishwear gowns abroad. They can now buy it locally at cheaper prices – and our tailors have stepped up their game. If you like to follow celebrity fashion, the good news is that our female celebs are not shy about revealing or tagging their Nigerian designers/ tailors on Instagram, and we also list them on posts where we featured celebrity wedding guest dress styles.
Anyway, not every Nigerian wedding guest buys their short gowns ready-made. If you have a good tailor and prefer a ‘cut-and-sew’ outfit to a ready-made one, types of fabric for sewing the English short gown styles include scuba and materials, lace, satin, jacquard and more. If you prefer to cut-and-sew, you can find good Englishwear materials in nearly every Nigerian market.
