Wedding attire or no?
Wedding attire or no? Lisa Donovan

Would you wear thongs to a wedding?

WE all know that truckies wearing singlets and rubber thongs is like our association with football, meat pies, kangaroos and the Aussie car.

Go to most roadhouses or truck stops around this vast country and you are sure to see some champions of the highways getting around in thongs.

But I could hardly believe my sub agent the "Bright Spark" who snaps photos for this column when he told about a wedding he attended at the glitzy Gold Coast on November 3.

"The best man wore thongs during the ceremony and at the reception," old Bright Spark quipped.

At least he didn't lob up in a singlet.

"No he came in a nice pair of long pants and a lovely white shirt," Bright Spark quipped.
