Ex-Miss SA Bokang slammed for wearing white at friend’s wedding

Bokang received a lot of criticism from social media for her choice of dress at another woman’s wedding.

It’s a well-known rule that you shouldn’t wear white to a wedding if you are not the bride, unless the theme is all-white of course, which was certainly not the case at former Bafana Bafana midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi and his new wife Carina Mckechnie white wedding recently.

Nonetheless, former Miss South Africa Bokang Montjane-Tshabalala arrived with her man, South African professional football midfielder, Siphiwe Tshabalala, wearing a white dress that looked pretty much like a wedding dress at the prestigious wedding.

The beauty, who received a lot of criticism from social media for pulling such a stunt at another woman’s wedding, recently went to social media to defend herself and explain the exact colour of her dress.

“This picture has filter my dress is cream n the colour code was pastel colours… Enjoy ur sunday Le tlogele gong phaphela,” she wrote on instagram.

“You must be very unhappy with your life to wake up so early n post such negativity, what you say is a reflection on you n how u feel about your life nt on us. Please spread ur negativity somewhere else not on my page Cz I’m nt a negative person… Wake up n choose to speak words that bring life n nt hurt or death into people’s lives n see how amazing God or the universe can bless u in return… Choose to spread love n light n what amazing blessings flow… Stay beautiful in n out n be blessed, wish you all the best,” she further wrote.

Regardless, some people still went on social media to voice their disapproval of the dress, indicating that the former Miss SA was somehow trying to outshine another woman on a day that wasn’t hers.

“I would just unfriend @bokang_m shes disrespectful wearing white at ur wedding worse a dress that looks like a wedding dress,” one person wrote.

“Was this a double wedding,” another asked, while some defended Montjane-Tshabalala and pointing out how beautiful she looked.

We are no experts when it comes to wedding attires, and we don’t know if the model spoke to the bride first about her outfit.

What do you think of her dress choice?
