Wedding traditions that you like

When it comes to wedding planning for same-sex couples, the vast majority of wedding traditions simply don’t fit with their celebration of love and lifelong commitment. So, what more can you do than to throw tradition away and start creating your own?

While this can be a daunting concept at first, countless couples have gone on to create beautiful and powerful ceremonies that borrow from the conventions they would like to include while doing away with the parts that go against the grain for their personalities and beliefs.

The result? Unique weddings that are setting trends for others to follow. Here are some of the same-sex wedding trends that we love.

 

Farewell gender roles

Why exclude other sexes from your bridal party in order to follow tradition?

Many same-sex couples doing away with traditional gender roles and creating bridal parties made up of the people who love and support them, regardless of their gender!

While some brides and grooms choose to stick to tradition by both donning white, or going for the black and white combo, others are seeking a more personalised approach by wearing complimenting colours. We love the two brides above choice of wearing opposite colours in gorgeous, chic silhouettes.

Also, in some cases, dresses and suits are also being ignored in favour of feminine suits, paired kilts, rompers, and mismatched separates in all sorts of beautiful colour combinations.

Aussie same-sex couples often decide together to get hitched or enjoy a much more understated proposal, as our same-sex attracted couples are unfortunately still forced to marry overseas due to the outdated laws. Fingers crossed that this changes soon!
