“What should I wear to the wedding?” is a problem that many newlyweds-to-be face. LGBTQ+ couples have even more questions: should the outfits be the same, and if not, should they at least match each other? Below are 6 stylish ideas on how to dress for a same-sex wedding.
Same Attires, Same Colors
This option is classic especially among grooms: many of them prefer to wear the same white or black tuxedos. But some brides also choose to match suits or dresses. This option is a win-win: it will make you fit together perfectly and not worry that your outfits will look bad together in wedding photos.
Same Style, Different Details
For those who do not want to look like twins but are afraid of outfits mismatching, this option will be an ideal one. There are several ways to accomplish this. You can choose one designer and buy clothes from the same collection, but different in cut (and with the same print, for example), define a certain style and choose outfits based on your dress code, or choose one similar piece of clothing (jacket or pants), but complement it with different elements and accessories.
Black & White
Yes, this is the traditional variant, but traditional does not mean outdated. Iconic classics do not get old - the secret of success is just to bring something new to it. Instead of wearing a classical black suit, you can choose an oversize version with decorative elements (rhinestones or embroidery as an option). A bride may buy a trendy transparent straight dress instead of a puffy princess gown. It all boils down to your imagination!
Playing With A Gender
Same-sex weddings are usually not fixed on traditions and stereotypes at all, so if you're going to break them, go all out with it! Who says a groom should get married in a tuxedo and a bride has to do it in a dress? Fashion designers have long ago abandoned gender stereotypes. In Louis Vuitton and Jacquemus fashion shows, for instance, men came out in white skirts and veils - the same stylish trick can be used by men at a real wedding. Women can wear an oversized suit and complete the look with a bowtie or a tie.
Colorful outfits can not only be worn by guests, but they will also look stylish on the newlyweds. You can dress in the same shade or choose several complimentary colors. Colorful variants are at the top of trends right now, so the brighter the color scheme, the better.
Pieces of Art
Minimalism is gradually becoming a thing of the past. It is being replaced by breathtaking designs, intricate cuts and unusual textures. In other words, these are the outfits that can be freely called works of art. This also includes couture outfits: puffy dresses and unusual tuxedos that we are used to seeing only on red carpets and fashion shows. The disadvantage is that they certainly can't be worn again after the wedding, but believe us, such looks will be remembered by the guests for a long time.
