Awe-Worthy Bride Styles for Your Same-Sex Wedding
In the slightly modified words by one Miss Lana Del Rey, “Every now and then the stars align, girl and girl meet by the great design, could it be, that you and me are the lucky ones”? If you are about to tie the knot with your best friend, the girl of your dreams, your heart’s true desire, well you are certainly one of the lucky ones. Standing together at the aisle, saying your I dos, is truly one of the most magical moments that the two of you will remember even when you are old ladies sitting on the couch many years from now. This occasion definitely calls for the best of the best, in every aspect, and of course, the perfect attire is one of the key elements of a picture perfect wedding. Therefore, we are here with some truly awe-inspiring ideas that will hopefully catch your eye and point you in the right direction so you look absolutely luminous on your big day, so let us get started.
Nice day for a white wedding
If you are a traditionalist at heart, and you have been dreaming of that gorgeous white wedding dress, well by all means, do it! Do not be afraid of going over the top, go where your heart takes you; this is your day after all, and on top of marrying the one, you should do it in the dress that is the one for you. If you both love dresses, this duo is absolute perfection. The brides are in sync to a certain extent. Both of them are wearing white dresses with the satin detail that is a nice touch, but also serves to wonderfully accentuate the waist. They are not, however, matchy-matchy, as the first dress is lace and with sleeves, and has a boho quality to it, while the other one (equally gorgeous) is strapless with a wonderful texture. For a touch of tradition, this is definitely the way to go.
Traditional with a twist
Sometimes you want to take the traditional elements and decorate them your own way. The celebrity wedding that everyone has been obsessed with was the one between Samira Wiley and her wife Lauren Morelli, the stars of a well-known TV series Orange is The New Black. The two brides had slightly different takes on what constitutes a perfect wedding outfit. Wiley wore an off-the-shoulder white gown, an absolutely stunning choice that accentuates both the waist and the collar bone, for an extra air of femininity, while her bride, Morelli chose a white pantsuit and attached cape, which is not exactly a dress but it is an equally gorgeous choice. If you are not the dress type, but you still want to wear white, the pantsuit is an incredible and an increasingly popular look a lot of brides have been leaning towards. You can style the suit up with a pair of statement blue wedding shoes; the electric color will create a classy contrast and it will elevate the look even more. There’s no reason to go with the same old ‘white wedding shoe’ when you can take tradition and decorate it your own way.
A little sparkle never hurt nobody
We could all use a bit of sparkle in our lives, so why not go for a lot of sparkle on your wedding day. This look is completely unconventional, so if you like your glitter with the absence of tradition on the side, take some inspiration from this great couple. The first bride is rocking an all sequin-top with a frilly tulle skirt, while the other has taken an entirely different route and opted for a clean and classic white suit. The part where they chose to be a bit matchy is their tops. Although the second bride is wearing a silver sequin-top, the combination looks wonderfully synchronized while keeping the looks completely unique and in tune with their respective personalities. Glittery matching shoes would be a great touch for this kind of outfit. Never afraid to be a little quirky.
If dresses or any variety of dresses are not exactly your cup of tea, then definitely do not do it. Go for a look that feels and looks like you. If you never were a dress type of girl, there is no reason to pretend you are. In that case, you can go with a wonderful suit. It is casual and relaxed, perfect for a boho-beach wedding. If you are, on the other hand, looking to really suit it up with something a bit more sleek and sharp, well, there is nothing like a black suit to achieve that. A well-tailored black suit paired off with black high-heel sandals is absolutely to die for. It is elegant, feminine and neutral at the same time, so if you are neither overly feminine not butch, this outfit is the perfect meeting of both worlds.
