What to Wear to a Half Asian Wedding

by cecylia on August 15, 2012

Last Saturday a childhood friend married his amazing lady in holy matrimony. It was the first Asian-guy and White-girl wedding I’ve ever attended! Ok before you point your controversy labelling gun at me, please allow me to explain. I’ve realised, with the help of a certain vocal artist, that there are so many couples composed of Asian-girls and White-guys, but not so much the other way around. Why? I have absolutley no idea! This bewedded couple is hands down one of, if not, the coolest pair I know. And my next blog post will prove to you just that. But in the meantime, my advice for a half Asian wedding? Wear red, because the Asians will love it. Don’t wear Asian style, and the Westerners will love it. So it’s a win win for everyone!

 上个周末我小时候的好朋友娶了他超级美丽的妻子。在我所参加的几乎一百个婚礼当中这是第一对亚洲男生和外国女子的婚礼。当我听了这首歌后我才发现亚洲女孩和外国男生在一起很多,但反过来却不常见。这是为什么呢?我还真不晓得。但我知道我的朋友们是我所认识的人之中最杰出,最善良,最充满爱的一对。下一篇的博客你们就会看得出来。那参加一个半亚洲人的婚礼应该穿什么呢? 穿红的,亚洲人会喜欢。不要穿亚洲款式的,西方人会欣赏。这样,两方都会开心! 

Where: St Kilda Town Hall

Wear: Sophia Kokosalaki dress (similar one here), Mawi necklace, vintage clutch, Zara coat, YSL pumps

Don’t worry Cecylia, I totally understand. I actually talked to my boyfriend about this ( though granted, he’s Asian too ), and he admits that Asian guys just aren’t as coveted…? I guess? by caucasian girls. A cultural thing, I suppose.
Your outfit is beautiful – I really like the form of the dress!
