Edmund and I were invited to a wedding and I was disappointed when I saw that guests were also required to wear specific colors. I thought this thing only applies to sponsors. It has become a trend daw according to a friend of mine that guests are also required to wear specific motif or color. Siguro maganda sa pictures nila dahil uniformed colors but I personally think this imposition is unnecessary.
In panic I rummaged through my boxes of old gowns and I found a blue Pitoy Moreno gown. It needed alteration to make it bigger around the waistline.
I brought it to Amir Sali’s shop and when they saw that it was a creation by Pitoy Moreno, they didn’t want to touch it or more so alter it. It’s a collector’s item na daw.
Amir said no one alters a Pitoy gown. It should be preserved in its original form. As a compromise, I asked him to make me a very simple gown devoid of any sequins or bling-bling. He gladly agreed.
The gown was finished in three days but I decided not to attend the wedding. I was not in a proper frame of mind to socialize because I was incredibly upset about some things. I still am. I am not good at hiding my emotions and my mood would be too obvious. The bad thing about locking unhappiness is you are also not able to express happiness. I didn’t want to sit there and frown, or worst, cry.
A wedding is a happy occasion and one must attend only with nothing but good and cheerful feelings.
