What about a white pants suit of some sort? With more flowy fabric. Or does she not want to wear white?

You say she doesn’t wear dresses, but she was going to wear a kilt… does that mean she would wear a skirt?  If so, another option could be a long, flowy skirt and a nice top.

Check this website out. The blogger likes to do features on LGBTQ weddings. Here is a link to a particular one where the girls aren’t wearing typical wedding attire.

Or why not something like Ellen wore? She wore white with a light pink shirt underneath. Maybe your Fiance could wear a very light shade of the green you are using for your wedding colors?

What about a nice black skirt suit with a white silk top?  A little black suit will likely come in handy again some time, and she can peronalize it some with accessories?

 

Or something like this (as long as it was dressed up enough not to look like her MOH)

What about a nice chiffon pant out fit. They have alot of them on the MOB sections that are really nice. You can usually order them in white or ivory. I think they look stunning on people of every body type. You also might chech etsy and let her design what she wants and see who can make it and for how much.

My sister (MOH) is in the same boat.  Doesn’t want to wear a dress or a tux, so we are going with black dress pants and a nice, dressy, collared shirt that matches the color of the rest of the bridesmaids’ dresses.  Maybe you could do something like that?  You could go with a blouse/dress shirt in white (more bridal looking) or in one of your wedding colors (fun and coordinated).  I also LOVE what Ellen wore.

We’ve talked about it and FW is planning to wear just a regular black womens dress suit, with the shirt matching our colors.
