Jewellery and 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.

Lingerie

For a lesbian wedding lingerie has got to be factored in when deciding what to wear under your bridal outfits for your wedding night and honeymoon. Your wedding night is the perfect excuse to splash out on something that will wow your new bride. You can choose anything from a Basque or corset to stockings and suspenders. This is also the one time in your life you should do what you have been meaning to do for years and get yourself measured for your perfect bra size! Purchasing a bra of the right size can help you smooth your curvy silhouette or enhance your bust. Wearing a well fitted bra will help you feel secure on your wedding day and look and feel sexy on your wedding night.

What lingerie should I wear at my lesbian wedding?
Your body shape and your wedding outfit will determine what kind of lingerie you should wear. If you are wearing a strapless top or dress you will need to purchase a strapless bra, corset or Basque. If you are big busted you can create an hourglass figure by wearing an outfit with straps or sleeves, a corset style Victorian bodice allowing you to wear a strapped bra or corset. Plain or silky lingerie are best worn under slim fitting fabrics.

If your wedding outfit has an unusual neckline or low back you are best choosing an adhesive bra that works by sticking the cups directly to your breasts. Be sure to practise before the big day to check they stay in place!

Stockings and suspenders can give you as classic and sexy look but be sure to try them out before your big day as hold ups can be great on slim legs but don’t work too well if you have heavy thighs.

Why not treat your lesbian partner to a gift of lingerie before the wedding or even on your honeymoon. Make sure you know her size and what style she may like and present the gift in a wrapped ribbon tied box and she will love you forever.

For those of us who wish to hide our curves you can choose shape-wear lingerie which will hold in your tummy waist or thighs to create a slimmer figure.

Lesbian Wedding Shoes

Us lesbians are not renowned for our love of shoe shopping but shoes on your wedding day are an important accessory. They need to be both comfortable, able to match your outfit and have the ability to let you walk in them! The sooner you can embark on that dreaded shoe shopping trip the better. Once you have purchased your wedding shoes try to wear them at home to break them in which means they will be more comfortable on the day.

If you are just not comfortable with a type of shoe you don’t normally wear then our advice is ditch them and go with what’s comfortable for you. A lesbian wedding does not have to mean six inch stilettos – if you want to wear flats then so be it.

Something old, something new.....true for lesbians too!
Tradition states that the brides should have “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue”. If you manage to bring all these things together it will apparently bring mystical influences into your possession. Something blue symbolises purity so have a think before your big day to stop you scrambling round at the last minute.

Handbags

Handbags have not traditionally been an essential for lesbians but on your big day you may need a smart accessory to store make-up or tissues or perhaps a special surprise gift for your wife to be. The style of bag you choose depends on your outfit but choose a simple bag and you can’t go far wrong.

Wedding Rings for Men

The wedding ring is a pubic symbol of your love and commitment to each other. Choosing the right wedding ring for you both can be a difficult task so don’t leave the shopping too late.
