How To Combine Your Gown For A Same-Sex Wedding

While each couple gives more or less relevance to the elements of their wedding, there is no doubt that everyone wants to look amazing. Therefore, we tell you how to combine wedding dresses at a same-sex wedding.

Even today there are people who still believe that in a wedding between two women one dresses in a suit (or more masculine) and the other “traditional” (or with a dress). Similarly in the case of men, which is no rule. All couples have their particularities and only each of them will choose how to dress on their wedding day.

You are not Twins

Although brides or grooms want to wear the same outfit, it is not the same as looking like twins. Remember;  you are two people who decided to spend their lives together, not to be one. The small details will make them differ even while wearing the same suit.

Believe in Harmony

The style of the suits or dresses will depend on the time, place and season of the year in which it is performed. With this in mind, you can start playing with the ideas and types of outfits. Of course, do not forget to take into account your tastes.

Ok, we already know that they may or may not wear similar clothes, now it’s time to do mix & match. We suggest you customize your wedding outfits with your initials or with your favorite verses. In the case of men, a good option is to use the same color in different elements. For example, while one wears a wine-colored tie, the other wears it in the boutonniere. This way you will be coordinated but not look exactly alike.

For the girls, if you both decide to go with dresses, they have several options to be to the altar in synchrony. Without seeing your partner’s dress, they can be in accordance with the style they want to wear: beach, bohemian, gala, and so on. Know absolutely nothing and just agree with some details such as shoes, headdress or veil.

Girls traditionally carry a bouquet to the altar, which can be made with the flowers of their choice, the size, and shape they want. For an equal link, both can carry a bouquet with the same flowers but with different designs. They will look beautiful.


First, you have to be very clear that combining is not having everything of the same color (unless you wish). A delicate way to do this is to use the different shades of the same range to give a more harmonious look to the suits. However, it is not the only way to mix your outfits for the big day.

For boys, a very efficient way is to wear a tuxedo with different finishes. For example, one of you can wear satin while the other is in silk or linen. Also, try different colors: one in navy blue and the other in gray or green.

When I got this gallery back from the talented @carleyjaynephotography it made me cry!. . As a makeup artist, I never really get to know the other half since I'm always with the bride in the morning. . But not this time! I got to know both Alissa and Aveena, so seeing their first looks made it extra special and it really touched my heart to see their love for each other. These 2 have the most beautiful souls and I'm so grateful that you chose me to beautify you both on the most special day of your lives. 👩‍❤️‍👩. . .

For a wedding between women, if you do not want to wear the same attires but not look completely different, the best option is to purchase their wedding dresses with the same manufacturer. This so that the fabrics are the same or very similar. However, the contrast is made with different silhouettes.

"We were so happy to be able to wear traditional Indian wedding clothes to get married in to celebrate Sanj’s heritage. It also took place in South London where Sanj grew up and we were so blessed to have our family around us. We absolutely loved the traditional Indian garlands we exchanged at our registry; these were handmade by our mums and some close family friends which made them so special " —@thetravellinggays⁠ .⁠ [Two marriers stand holding hands and walking outside.

The most important thing is to feel comfortable in your own link. Dress according to who you are as people and as couples who love each other.
