Ask Giantmonk #4: Giantmonk Dresses For Wedding Success

Anne asks:

Giantmonk, what sort of role have you taken on in the planning and execution of Eskimimi’s wedding to Mr. Wonderful?

Hello Anne! Let me start by saying that I do so like your hair, it is particularly complementary to your stunning good looks and sets off your features perfectly!

As much as I hope that you know I am sincere in all I have just said I hope it also goes to show what a great sense of style that I happen to have been blessed with, as well as a skill in social charm that I have developed over the last two years by talking to so many wonderful people. I have learned by the wit and grace of others, and now continue to do so through my wonderful readers, of whom you are one of my most prized.

The gifts of aesthetic appreciation and social ease have led me to my latest and perhaps most important assumed role to date: that of wedding co-ordinator and overseer of all things spectacular.

I am sure that you can appreciate that there is so much to organise and beautify for a wedding that it would be simply impossible to cover it all here, but let me indulge you with a sense of the drama I have created for the wardrobe of the wedding party.

Now, nobody should outshine the bride, of course, and I am sure that she will look absolutely lovely on the day, but as her outfit is yet to be revealed I have only my own carefully planned and balanced attire to show. This has taken literally months to plan and conceive the perfect understated yet sophisticated and eye-catching outfit so befitting a Giantmonk of my stature and bearing.

These are the details from the final design draft, as the actual outfit is currently being hand-woven and sewn by artisans whose ancestors have been weaving and sewing the finest cloth of hundreds of years, but I am sure that these sketches will give you a sense of the magnificent creation for the day.

As I said, it is customary that the bride should be the focus of all the guests’ admiring glances and I certainly wish her all of the best hope that this will be the case, but with looks like this and an outfit of this calibre, I will not be able to help it if eyes are drawn towards me whilst I carry out my very special duties as the ring-bearer!
