Wedding season is upon us, and if you’re one of the lucky ones getting hitched this season, chances are you’re already knee-high in dress shopping. The prospect of dressing up in something formal and chic may sound intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be — especially if you’re in an LGBTQ+ relationship! Choosing the right outfit for your wedding day can be daunting, but with these queer fashion tips, you’ll be sure to look your best. And don’t forget to have fun with it! After all, it’s your big day!
Find the Right Dress Designer
There are a few things to remember when looking for a designer, especially if you’re unsure where to start. First, think about what kind of style you’re going for. Do you want something traditional or something more unique? There are designers out there who specialize in both. Second, consider your budget. You don’t want to spend more than you can afford, but at the same time, you want to make sure you’re getting a dress that’s worth the money.
Figure Out What Appeals to You
If you blindly follow others, it might go wrong because one size does not fit all. You have your personality, so you should pick a dress that best reflects it. If a queer couple rocks in Avant-Garde, it might not be the best fit for you as you might be more suited for a traditional look. You should ask yourself whether you’re confident with a particular look. It won’t work if a bold look makes you uncomfortable or if a traditional one pulls you down.
Let Clothing Reflect Your Personality
You should keep in mind that whatever you decide should portray your personality. After all, you don’t want to look like someone you’re not at your wedding. You should also pay attention to the minute details like the color of the bow tie or the shoe. Every little detail on your big day contributes to a bigger picture which is your personality. If the clothes reflect who you are on the inside, then they’re the right fit for you.
Consider the Level of Formality of the Event
While you certainly don’t have to abide by the codes of formality at your wedding, it is an excellent guide to deciding your attire. For example, if you’ve asked your guests to dress up formally, you should also abide by the same rule. In the same vein, if the guests have to put on a black bow tie, you should also do the same – but remember, you can be creative with the tuxedo color.
Dress Up According to Your Body Type
No matter your body type, there are ways to dress that will flatter your figure and make you feel your best on your wedding day. The most important thing when selecting clothing is knowing your body type. You want to wear clothes that compliment your body’s shape and give you confidence. Knowing what kind of body you have can go a long way in making shopping for clothes less stressful!
