I have been to a couple of weddings, and I have noticed a disturbing trend mainly amongst young females at these social events.
First, let’s get this clear girls, a wedding whether conducted in open air market like the Kimalel Goat Auction or conducted inside the precincts of a major and imposing Cathedral remains a very solemn affair.
This is one event that your girlfriend wants your absolute support so that it goes on smoothly. If ever there was a need to have a perfect day, many a bride will confess that it would rather be their wedding day.
Therefore, the young women who turn up at weddings to witness that indeed one less competition is gone should have the decency to dress properly. You do not go to a meeting where the Almighty is supposed to keep close tabs at and you are as haggard as they get.
Going to a wedding has got much more than just showing up at the wedding venue to be counted. You must plan and come out looking elegant and blissful. But unfortunately a majority of young girls do not invest in time and thought when it comes to selecting wedding attire.
They just throw any garment that they find as soon as they push their hand in the wardrobe. As a result, many of the girls in weddings show up at it looking like yesterday’s food leftovers.
Second, this is a social occasion with people from all walks of life. If you cannot respect the clergy with your scantily assembled outfits in the name of high fashion to a wedding.
At least have decency to the rural folks who rise up in ungodly hour just to make it to the big centre in time to witness their girl getting hitched or their son bringing home a woman.
The rural folks besides being deeply religious have their non-negotiable social ethos.
But when they come to weddings to major towns only to have their eyes and their calmness assorted by the reckless and shameful outfits in the name of city fashion is despicable.
Granted, it’s okay to consider that you are still single —and you are ready to mingle with some hot groomsmen— but this is never an excuse for you to feel tempted and throw on your super mini-dress.
The elders at the wedding will keep wondering if you forgot your clothes at home assuming what you have was an undergarment.
Remember lots of pictures and video will be taken to make this occasion memorable. So you do not want your pals to watch the wedding video, seething with anger for turning up looking like you came straight from night club or worse off borrowed attire from a sex worker.
If your girls had the brains they would figure out that this is one social event that you can use to brand yourself as the next candidate to walk down the aisle.
In addition, who wants the newly acquired in-laws to start assuming that in another wedding on another day, that would be their bride dressed like a mannequin in a negligees shop?
