Two wedding dresses? Two tuxedos? One dress, one pantsuit? One tuxedo, one kilt? There are no rules for attire at same-sex weddings so you can wear whatever you like. What will you wear to your gay wedding?
Lesbian couples may choose to both wear a traditional wedding gown, complete with veil and bouquet. You may want to wear different dresses or matching dresses–the choice is yours. You should wear whatever you want and what feels best. The Fall 2012 bridal collections are out, so you can start there for inspiration.
You many choose to both wear pantsuits, or perhaps one dress and one pantsuit like the Zac Posen designed outfits of Ellen Degeneres and Portia DeRossi. For Ellen, a dress was out of the question.
“I’d never wear a dress. I don’t ever feel comfortable in a dress. The last time I wore a dress was 12 years ago. I’ve never liked them, even when I was younger…. Zac Posen designed our outfits. My shirt was sheer and it was lace and ribbon through it. It was more feminine than I would go, but it was still a gorgeous look. There’s no way to compete with the dress Portia was wearing, so why try?”

As non-traditional as gay weddings are, it’s still not common for two men to marry in wedding dresses, but if that’s your choice we’d like to see it! A gay couple will usually choose to wear suits or tuxedos. You can wear matching ensembles or different outfits to compliment your individuality. Even if you decide to match outfits you can choose different colors or accessories to go with your suits.
You can always mix things up and wear a kilt or traditional wedding clothing from your culture. Whatever you choose, you should feel comfortable and represent your true self but at the same time coordinate with your partner so that you look like the perfect pair on your wedding day.
