I'm gettin' married in the morning...


Folks have been talking about weddings today, so I've been thinking about mine and Q's. For Christmas he made me a calendar of pictures and some of his artwork, including, for February, a picture of him and me in a big heart. (Yes, it's plortch-worthy, get over it - I'll scan it and post it one of these days.) In it, he's wearing the traditional American tuxedo, and I'm wearing the traditional Filipino barong:



Yup - essentially a see-through Mexican wedding shirt (though who picked it up from whom I don't know). I dunno - is it me? More importantly, do you really think I can get away with wearing white at my wedding? I mean, neither of us is pregnant, but still...

Most barongs are not exactly white, but more of an ivory color. Michael and I each have one (though I doubt they fit any more). You'll be safe.

JOhn.

Oddly enough, from what I can tell, yes, it's supposed to look like that.

JOhn.

As Quincy would say, "It's cultural." I think he really wants me or both of us to wear it (he'd look HAWT in it). Personally I think everybody looks good in a tux, but we'll figure it out.

And rock on - orange dress! I'd like us to get married on a Friday the 13th, and the first one after he gets out is June 2007.

wedding attire
I like the look, but see-through seems a little odd for wearing at your wedding - maybe a little too Betazed. Andrew and I did the tux thing and we're very glad that we did. Mind you, I've also worn a tux as a bridal attendant and a Starfleet uniform as a best man, so obviously there are plenty of options.

Re: wedding attire
Well it's not quite see-through - there's an undershirt that goes with it, I believe. But yeah, I'd be more comfortable with my captain's pips on my collar. :)

if you wear white, how will we tell where the shirt ends and you begin?

Heh, well, it won't be for a while yet, but the stupid guy actually agreed it's where we're headed. I think he wants a rock, though, but we'll see... ;)

Oh well, as for the creases in the barong tagalog, i don't know. But you're right, it probably came out of a box. But am pretty sure you'll look perfect in a barong and Q in tux!

Q would look perfect in anything (or nothing, for that matter). :D

It's amusing to note you'll out-white your garb. Dunno if that'll be a nice contrast, but...not my call.

I'll have to find my vale of mourning...er...I mean...rent a tux...I guess. Do they make plortch resistant material?

Fuck you - I'm putting you in a dress. Pink. With BOWS.

I can't wait to see your barong!

They're so uncomfortable, though...
