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.

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.

Veils

You will be surprised how popular full wedding gowns topped off with a veil are at lesbian weddings. If you have decided you are going to wear a traditional wedding dress to your wedding then choose your veil in line with the style of your dress.

Depending on the length of your veil the best advice we can give is to practise both your walk down the aisle and taking off your veil.

Tiara or Headdress?

If you are thinking about wearing a headdress or tiara start with your hairdresser and get some advice about what may go with your style of hair on the big day. You can also get lots of good ideas by checking out some designs on the high street.

If you are going to use flowers in your headdress order them early and think about the theme for your wedding and if the flowers link in with that theme. Remember to dress the back of your head as well as the front as most of your guests will spend the ceremony looking at your back.

Bridesmaid Fashion

Before deciding on your bridesmaids outfits you need to ensure that you have chosen your outfit so that the colour and style can be coordinated with the colouring of your bridesmaid’s outfits.

Consider the ages of your bridesmaids as adults may not necessarily want to be dressed in the same outfit as a child and outfits the brides choose should try to be as flattering as possible to people’s ages and sizes.

It is acceptable to choose a favourite colour that expresses both brides personalities. The material you choose can determine a figure hugging outfit or something that will accentuate body parts your bridesmaids may not flatter.

Best Woman Fashion

If you are having a Best Woman then she may want to select an outfit to compliment both brides’ outfits ensuring you don’t clash or indeed look too similar on the day. Again anything goes from a traditional tuxedo or three-piece suit to a dress.

Gay Wedding Fashion - Matter to Consider

The season
Consider the time of year you are getting married as this may affect the type of fabric you choose if your wedding is in summer or winter.

Your venue
Where will your wedding be held? If you are thinking about a beach wedding abroad your outfits may be more relaxed then if you are getting married in a very formal venue.

Your figure
No matter what your shape or size is, there will be a wedding outfit out there that is perfect for you. Think about what you feel comfortable in and what style suits you best.

Your hair & skin colour
If you have a very pale complexion pure white may not be a good colour on you so think about what colours suit your skin and hair colour. If you are wearing complimentary outfits to each other and you have different skin and hair colours think about who should wear which outfit.

Time to get Changed on your Big Day

If you are wearing a wedding dress you may well need help on the big day to get ready. If your partner is banned from seeing you until the ceremony then ask your bridesmaids or friends/family to help as anything from getting the dress on to going to the loo can be a two person job. When it’s time for the dress to come off again at the end of the night your new wife should be only too pleased to help!

Shopping for the Perfect Lesbian Wedding Outfit

According to our survey 92% of lesbians chose to shop together for their wedding outfits. After all your wife to be knows your taste, you trust their opinion and they will be honest enough to tell you if something doesn’t look so good.

Most wedding stores require an appointment to try on a dress as it can take a long time and needs a lot of attention of staff. So, if you are planning to visit more than one wedding shop then think about the timings for your appointments.

Take a camera phone with you so that you can take photo’s of the outfits when you have them on as you will probably try on that many and forget which ones you like and where you saw it.

Any lesbian wedding wear specialist you see advertised on this site have been recommend by lesbians as having friendly staff, a good choice of wedding outfits for lesbians and making each person feel special. You can share your feedback with us by emailing us or share your experience through our blogs section.

Should I consider buying a second hand wedding outfit?
Purchasing second hand wedding outfits is becoming more and more common. Some people just don’t like the idea of splashing out hundreds or thousands of pounds/dollars on an outfit you will wear for one day and others in this current climate are just on a tight budget.

Buying an outfit second hand will cost anything from $20 to $1000 depending on whether it is designer or from an outlet. You may have costs on top of that from delivery charges to dry cleaning.

Many brides sell their items on auction websites such as eBay but our blogs section contains links to specific lesbian wedding outfits for sale so if you are looking for something other than a wedding dress check it out.

How to decide on what you will wear?

For heterosexual women the choice is relatively simple – it’s a case of what style and colour of dress shall I wear? For lesbians, deciding on your wedding outfit is a lot more complex. For a start not every lesbian will want to wear a big white wedding dress so the options are: dress (non meringue), trouser suit or skirt suit or something completely different like a theme or fancy dress. Then you have to decide will you both be matching, complimentary, femme, butch etc...

Most lesbians have strong individual styles so stick to what you are comfortable with – it’s your day and nobody else’s.

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.
