My best friend's sister wedding; CHAPITRE UN

29th November is approaching. It's gonna be my best friend's sister wedding in Miri and I have nothing to wear. How's that for a blog entry?

Inspired by my manager who always suggest me to Google EVERYTHING (I wish I could Google his sense though), I've came across tonnes of information on fashion DO's and DONT's for attending a wedding in the net. For all you fashionista's out there, I've tried my best to sum it all up and I hope I did well. Here goes...

White is not right!
Innitially, I planned to wear white cos I think white is cool. Being an amateur and unskilled fashion person myself, I was taken aback to know that it's a GOLDEN RULE of not wearing white unless it's your wedding. Period!

Keep it classy.
... and simple but not tacky. Stay away from those extra frills like tails, ruffles, loud colors, wings, feathered-head-gear or anything that you'll probably wear on a halloween night party. Wedding isn't the place to show off. And if you do, go to Jalan Yap Kwan Seng instead. Wink wink.

Shorts are not!
I love my shorts and I wore them a lot. I even thinking of wearing one for this ceremony. Well, you can say I'm a slow bloomer. But shorts are not meant for wedding affairs. Just admit it. No matter how voguish you make them, shorts just won't do the trick.

Glitters?
Unless you are M. Daud Kilau, then you'll be excused. Resist the urge of being a shinning star when the newlyweds are actually the star of attraction! Some people just can't help themselves, don't be one of them.

Lose the leather.
Thank God I'm no leather person. In fact I dont have any! Leather is not your best choice for anything above your ankles on wedding days. So keep it to yourself, neither on your best friend's wedding nor his sister's wedding...

Black is ok.
"It's not a funeral babe..." my friend told me. Yeah... if you dress it in a depressing fashion. Opt for a more sophisticated black HAPPY attire and you'll look fabulous. And please don't cry while wearing black to a wedding. You'll convey a wrong signal to the bride on her holy matrimony day.

Back to the root.
Traditional costumes such as Baju melayu and Batik are perhaps the last choice for attending a wedding ceremony if you are a non-fashion-savvy like me. Baju Melayu will be gorgeous as long as the wedding is not held in churh or tample. Batik on the other hand is all right if you are 71 and not 17. Haha...

Suit up fellas
The first thing that you should check is the invitation, which will usually guide you in what kind of wedding you’ll be attending. If the invitation is crafted in calligraphy on a thick, expensive paper, then formalwear will be your best possible wedding attire. If that doesn't ring the bell, just call the groom and ask him yourself! There are rules on what formalwear you should think of wearing depending on the time and location of the wedding. It's a bit on a complex side (if you are me) but you'll be grateful to actually know about it. And guys... you don't have to be James Bond to know all this... SUIT UP!

I'MNOSUPERMANLAH: Still... I can't really decide what to wear... HELP!

a good shirt with khakis pants are good enough actually..

no need to be all james-bond-ish by suiting up if the wedding is done out in a garden. but if its done in a church, probably ok-lah.

up to you... since 29th is not that near... yet...
