Whenever I recall that day, the first thing I remember is my pink dress.

Seung-Eui Chal from Korea

On the wedding day of my brother-in-law, I was really glad because I had a new friend as well as a sister-in-law. Many people came to congratulate the new couple. There were many camera flashes, sweet music and flower arches. Whenever I recall that day, the first thing I remember is my pink dress.

On that day, I wore the Korean traditional dress which consists of a jacket and a skirt. This dress was pink, and there were flowers embroidered around the neck, on the sleeves and on the bottom of the skirt. There were long ribbons which were attached to the jacket. Instead of buttons, these ribbons were used to fasten the jacket.

This dress felt smooth but not soft. When I walked in the dress, there was a crispy sound from the rubbing of the dress. It was like the sound when I walk on snow. The skirt was so long that it trailed on the floor.

When the wedding ceremony ended, I was so tired because I had to greet the relatives and act as a guide. It was no wonder that the uncomfortable dress added to my fatigue. On my wedding day, I did not realize how uncomfortable it was for every member of my family to wear such a dress during my wedding ceremony.
