I actually hate weddings because even though I can wear what I want, I still get the questions of why don’t I wear a dress because I’m a girl, I still get the looks from random strangers at the bigger weddings and I’m always the only female in a suit. For some reason, ‘I don’t like dresses’ is not the answer people want to hear. The thing is, I could wear a dress, and I’d probably rock it too, because people look fantastic in dresses, but then I’d have to wear uncomfortable heels, I’d have to find a jacket that goes with the dress in case it gets cold, I’d have to find a bag to put my stuff in, I’d have to accessorise, I’d have to deal with people being all shocked that I’m in a dress, I’d feel overwhelming anxiety for being in a dress and life is just too stressful to think about all these things! So let me just wear my suit and get on with life.
