Gay Wedding Fashion & Beauty

For straight women finding the wedding dress is perhaps one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding. Traditionally women will go wedding dress shopping with your mum, sister, bridesmaid to be or best friend. They will try on hundreds of dresses of all different shapes, sizes and styles.

For lesbians, shopping for your wedding outfit can be a daunting task. Thankfully with lesbian weddings anything goes. Lesbians do not have to wear meringue dresses but many do choose to do so. Lesbian wedding wear can consist of complimentary outfits, matching outfits, individual style including butch and femme. This is your wedding, you set the tone – your outfit should represent who you are and most importantly you should be comfortable in your outfit and not surrender to stereotypical values of what a wedding outfit should look like.

For Men

Wedding fashion is often concentrated on the bride but of course men too want to look fabulous on their wedding day. There is plenty of opportunity to stand out from the crowd or select a more traditional outfit with the option of brightening it up with the colour of your tie or waistcoat.

Suits and accessories come in all shapes and styles so there really is something to suit everyone.

Jewellery & Accessories

The jewellery you wear is a very important part of your look on the day and you may wish to invest in a special piece of jewellery or accessory for your big day. You can find collections of jewellery that will compliment both you as a person and the outfit that you choose to wear on your big day.

Whether you choose an elegant pair of earrings, a glittering necklace or a beautiful watch you can find jewellery that will look graceful and gorgeous and accentuates your wedding outfit.

With bridal jewellery the general rule is keep it simple – less is more. Your wedding outfit should always be the starting point and if your outfit sparkles with diamonds and crystals then choose a piece of jewellery with matching elements.

If you are wearing your hair up you may want to choose drop earrings, for short hair you can’t go far wrong with studs.

If you decide you want to wear a headpiece there are some beautiful understated headpieces with simple classic designs that will make an elegant finishing piece to your outfit.

Health & Beauty

Of course you want to look your absolute best on your wedding day so you must consider factors such as hair, make-up and well-being.
It is popular for both men and women to now treat themselves to facials, massage, aromatherapy, manicures, pedicures, cosmetic treatment, waxing and pampering. This is all before the big day! Then there comes the hair and make-up...

Hairdressers and beauticians are readily available to be hired to work for you on your special day either in a salon or at your wedding destination. So if you decide to treat yourself to some professional help you should be sure to base your choice on recommendation. We would advise you meet with your beautician and/or hairdresser prior to your event to discuss and try some different styles so that you feel comfortable on the day and can plan any hair accessories for your wedding outfit well in advance.

If you go it alone ensure any beauty or tanning treatments you try have been tested on your skin well before your big day as you don't want to turn up with skin irritations or streaky tan marks for all to see!

Mrs & Mrs Fashion

We have lots of ideas for wedding fashion inspiration right here.

With gay marriage choosing your wedding outfit is not always so simple especially for lesbian couples. Traditionally in heterosexual marriage the bride will wear a dress and the groom a suit; same sex marriage is not so straight forward. Our advice is to be true to yourself -your wedding day is not about pleasing others but being comfortable with who you are and that can be reflected in what you wear.

If you are not someone who feels comfortable in a dress then there are many other options to choose from. Of course complimenting your partners outfit is something you must consider so you may wish to embark on a joint shopping trip to try out some varying styles of wedding attire. Wedding specialist outlets have a wealth of fashion options for you and your partner to consider as well as their knowledge on what looks good. High street stores now also have some beautiful ranges of wedding wear.
