We have all been to weddings with nine brides maids and others with only two. Some have brides as beautiful as the bride and in others, well, the bride has nothing to worry about when it comes to competition for the prettiest.
In all this, one thing stands out; the graceful flowing gowns of girls, glitters on the heads adorning flower girls, sexy colour-matching heels, beautiful polka-dot bubble dresses, and the whole array that ladies on the line show off these days- this is the spice in every wedding.
In fact, other than the married best maids, I have heard many MCs and pastors tell men to keep their eyes on the ‘prize. In this case, the stunning ladies behind the bride. Talking of the bride, she’s the bigger crown jewel in the bridal monarchy of course. She gets women to leave their upcountry homes as early as 3 am so that they get to Nairobi at 6:30… then go to South C to dance for the bride as she leaves to cleave.
This bride keeps everyone waiting at the isle with their iPads and smartphones, getting the congregation off their feet as the organist plays the classic wedding tunes. And the poor groom sips his java coffee with his boys at the Junction or Nakumatt Nyali at the coast, with few souls worried about his whereabouts. Others could be already walking with Johnny Walker at a cottage at Windsor.
