My partner is a woman,but she also isn’t girly. At all. So she’s not wearing a dress, as it would make her wildy uncomfortable.

My fiancee would NOT feel comfortable wearing a dress. She will be wearing a pant suit to our elopement. I am going to TRY to get her into a tux for our ceremony with friends and family. We both dress kind of boyishly but for my wedding I have ALWAYS pictured me in a white dress.

As others have posted, i. Should be a decision based on what the couple and the individuals feel their best in.   Neither my new wife and I have adopted butch or femme roles – never have (totally respect those who feel differently).  Labels don’t interest or fit us.  Dresses aren’t for us either – I don’t think that woman=dress.  With respect to our wedding attire, it was difficult to find things at first because we didn’t really know what we were looking for.  I wear suits for work and definitely didn’t want to look like I was going to work!  And she wears business casual for her work and wanted to be more dressy than that.  We definitely didn’t want to look like twins, go the tux route or clash.  Started shopping seriously about 2 1/2 months prior to our wedding and it worked out great.  Salespeople were very helpful for us as we talked about our styles and how we wanted to feel – simple, classy and consistent with our tastes and personalities –  I’d advise finding helpful people and getting them engaged in finding options  – they seemed to like working on it as an interesting challenge with a couple who valued their expertise, which we did.   Pretty quickly, I found a deep blue/black short, form fitting jacket  by Elie Tahari that I wore with black pants and black boots with subtle black sequins.  She found a white suit at White House/Black Market and wore it with silver glittery high tops – totally her personality.

@happyeverafter:  The picture of your wife running to the ocean kills me everytime I see it. I absolutely love it!

My partner and I are both wearing dresses because we are both more comfortable being in a dress on our wedding day. It’s all about what we feel best in, and what feels the most natural.
