for me, of cos COOL la! (even tho not really the tradition cos Black is the colour for/of mourning) cos;
1) Black has a slimming effect (klau tak sempat diet boleh hide babat2 behind the black and also depends on the kain la); and
2) if ur gown is black, bila part first time makan as hubby and wife, if lets say the lauk tempias ke, the stain wont be that obvious what rite? (me and food, you cant separate us even on my big day :P)
aaahhh!!! the first 2 soooo lawa!!! if pair with jet black hair and fair skin, OMG wowwww ~~~
BUT, of cos, must cover the shoulder with a shawl or something la takot kene jeling by the mother and the makcik2 babe! LOL!
