Matching Outfits – Yay or Nay?
Perhaps the well known issue for same sex weddings is what to wear. There are choices well beyond the traditional ones out there for everyone. We all know you should feel a million bucks on your wedding day. You wear what you’re comfortable and feel fabulous in, whether that’s a dress or suit for the ladies or suit and casual shirt / shorts for the guys, it’s your day. Additionally, consider complimenting each other, with colour coordinating ties, shirts, boutonnieres etc.
At the end of the day, your wedding should be a true reflection of you and your partner, if you have selected a theme, choose an outfit that will also fit in.
Planning Your Wedding Party
There’s nothing wrong with carrying on the traditional option and each person having their own party (best man, maid of honour, bridesmaids, groomsmen etc). We are HUGE fans of mixed gender wedding parties, so don’t panic about gender when choosing your besties to be next to you when tying the knot, think about who has supported you in your life and all kinds of relationships up until this very moment. You may even decide you don’t want a wedding party.
Weddings aren’t about following rules, it’s about about making your own and making a lifetime commitment to your other half. Remember it is no one else’s day but your own! Read on fore more Wedding Tips For Same Sex Couples…
New Wedding Day Traditions
Traditionally, the bride walks down the aisle with her father while the groom waits at the altar, this tradition might be considered to be old school and may not be possible nor desired, so don’t be nervous to try something different. For example, why not walk down together? Or another option could be to walk down separately with your mum, sister, brother, friend.
As we mentioned above, it’s not about following the rules! The creative possibilities are endless!!
Waiting until the altar until you see each other can be so daunting and overwhelming with all eyes on you from your guests. Why not have a quick sentimental moment before the ceremony begins and you get whisked away.
Ladies, as you’ve probably seen plenty times before, later on the evening can get quite eventful with the groom taking off the bride’s garter, if this is something you want to get involved in, you still can. Why not take turns!? Make it fun! Flip a coin to see who’s up first.
