Niaji Tailors and niaji dress advise

Hello Ladies....such a wonderful site...really impressed and joined today!

My wedding is a quiet one , cos that's what we both want!! We are having a registry weddings with just family and the weekend have friends over to our place which is quite a big place, but max 25 people, wedding in Oct2008 and just starting organising myself...:\?

I have bought my dress today from COAST as you can imagine I do not want a formal wedding dress, even though I bought one 2yrs ago when I thought I will have a big wedding and happy to give it to anyone who wants it at a minimum cost (Size16 and " forever yours" designer)

My question is we both want to wear traditional dress at home when our friends come over my husband to be is yoruba and I'm Ibo...we want something quite comfortable and his suggested I find out what people wear these days...Can anyone help? I have heard Gini Linen? Is there more...also any help on good tailors would be appreciated ...guess I have to grab one of those ovation mags do see what my sisters are wearing down there ...its been a while I've not been home since 1995...gosh I'm embarrassed...but have o go home next year to sort out my traditional wedding!image

Thanks for your time
