Have you been invited to a same-sex wedding and not sure what to expect? This article addresses some of the questions you may have. What will the ceremony be like? Who wears the wedding dress and who wears the suit? If there are two brides, who walks down the aisle as the bride and who waits at the altar? First of all, none of those details truly matter. The most important fact remains…two human beings are ready to give their total dedication and commitment to each other for a lifetime. For those who are curious about L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ weddings, here are some answers to common questions. (To learn more about what this acronym stands for, you may want to read this New York Times article updated in June 2019 that explains its meaning.) READ ARTICLE
Who Wears What?
If you're wondering who wears a tux and who wears a gown, just throw out the rule book. It’s an individual preference for each couple. As in a traditional wedding, it’s whatever makes you feel comfortable.
Some couples may decide to skip the traditional wedding ceremony while others who have found a house of worship that accepts their union may opt for a church wedding. As with opposite sex couples, any type of wedding ceremony that makes them happy should be the priority. Maybe one will walk the aisle and one waits at the alter. Some walk down together. Today, non-traditional weddings are becoming more popular and people are enjoying the freedom to do whatever makes them happy. How refreshing!
Many L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ couples are not ‘feeling it’ when it comes to gender specific reception traditions such as the garter or bouquet toss and the father-daughter and mother-son dance. Actually these traditions are becoming less popular these days no matter who is marrying who. The fact is that couples are changing the rules to fit their preferences and that’s a good thing. It’s all about the celebration.
