Blog PostWedding Attire Tips For Same-Sex Couples

wpengine September 18, 2018

When choosing your wedding attire, you probably have two thoughts in mind –

  1. Achieving the look you have always envisioned – the perfect ensemble that fits your style and personality
  2. How your intended spouse will look, as you both see each other for the first time on your Wedding Day.

Consider the options below to achieve these goals.


Women have a lot of options for their wedding attire. They can choose from various styles of wedding dresses, pantsuits or tuxedos.

If you and your intended, both envision wearing a wedding dress, keep in mind that the styles of the gowns do not have to match; one of you may prefer something modern and sleek and one of you may prefer something more traditional. Each dress should be true to the personality of the woman wearing it. However, it is nice to have a few cohesive elements to complement one another. Things like the same fabric, detail intricacy, neckline, etc. can tie your looks together.


Guys have the choice of wearing matching tuxedos or suits. A matching ensemble makes a great statement of unity, but it is understandable to want to have differences in your wedding day attire. If that is the case, consider wearing complementary suit colors and styles. Suit colors that pair well together are black and blue, tan and white or black and white. If you choose the same color suit, you can personalize the vests, ties, and accessories to your individual personalities.
