New bee here. Im a guy in a non-traditional, female led relationship. We are planning for a traditional October wedding (bride and groom). But we are also doing a smaller, non traditional ceremony which is going to be a two bride ceremony where I will be one of the brides.
Im hoping to get some help and advice to prepare for my bridal role as far as beauty, dresses, shoes,etc goes since this is all new to me. Thanks so much!

Welcome to the Hive! All I can say is look around and get some ideas! This place is great for that kind of stuff. Also, I love Pinterest 🙂

Wow congrats! That’s exciting 🙂
I hope I’m not being too forward but are you transitioning or do you identify more with one gender than the other? Are you doing a 2nd smaller ceremony because your family disagrees or something? Anyways, welcome! What kind of dress are you planning on?

Well, I sent you a message 😛 What silhouette are you going for and what is your budget?

Yeah, we can maybe help come up with dress ideas 🙂

Maybe you can start narrowing down the dress thing by setting aside general styles that you’re drawn to naturally–what you like on a gut-level, as opposed to what you think you should like, if that makes any sense… For example, do you want something with lots of beading and sparkly stuff? Or something more simple, with just a few blingy accents (or none at all)? Do you like lace? Are you for/against strapless or mile-long trains? Once you’ve figured that out, maybe you can move on to dress cuts you like (A-line, ball gowns, empire waistline, etc). That way, if you already know you don’t like, say, lace, or strapless models, you’ll just naturally skip over those as you’re trying to chose whether you want a ball gown or an A-line dresss… Oh-oh! And, of course, it helped me to have a realistic budget up-front… I didn’t even bother to look too closely at stuff I knew I couldn’t afford!
Hope this helps a little!
