My long time gf and I are getting married, and we both want to wear dresses. I'm just wondering how common that is - has anyone had any experience with GLBT weddings?

I do not have any experience with GLBT weddings, however I think that you and your girlfriend should do whatever you please, it is your day so enjoy it the way you want to

For my moms, she wore a dress, but not a wedding just. Just a nice summery dress and her partner wore pants and a suit.

I have also been to one that they both wore really nice pant suits.

Really, its your day and whatever you want to do that makes you guys happy is what should be done.

I think your wedding should be everything you want it to be. Who cares how common it is!

Wearing two dresses is common, wearing two suits is common, wearing a suit and dress is common.

It's your day.

Just like heterosexual couples can wear a gown and suit, or flipflops and bermudas, it's YOUR day. if you both want to wear gowns, more power to you

You shouldn't wear something you're not comfortable in just because you think that's what you're "supposed" to do.

I think 2 women getting married in dresses is fairly common; that seems to be a symbolic image.

My mother is straight and wore a pantsuit when she married my dad, so why not?

My girlfriend wants to wear a tux when we get married, and I want a big, poofy, ridiculous dress. My goal is to look like a meringue. Wish me luck!

The Husband said I was hot as fuck.

If you're in love... it won't really matter.

My girlfriend and I are getting married June 10 and she went all out. Big poofy, beautiful, white dress. I can't wait to see it. I'm wearing dark brown dress pants, a white on white paisley shirt, and a sage green vest over the top. Not tux clad butch, but pretty up there. We both just want to wear something that we'll be comfortable with and will reflect us individually.

Wear what you're comfortable in!

I think it's surprisingly common. I consider myself butch and don't even own a dress but I've been married twice to women and decided to wear dresses. The first wedding we wanted something that matched and so we had to compromise --she couldn't get anything too frilly-- we wore white dresses, matching earrings (got tattoos LOL) and rode away afterwards in a horse drawn carriage... very princessy. We also had a harpist, a champagne fountain and an impossibly tall cake with meringue lilies and orchids. LOL.

The second time was in the woods and we made ritual "robes".

I have worn tuxes to different events before but never considered them wedding fare. LOL.

It's your wedding, do what you want. I had a wedding at the courthouse and instead of taking the retarded vows seriously, we played slapstick jokes on the judge. He married is anyway. At least he was a good sport.

Aw, congratulations! And I think it's actually pretty common. I agree with the above posters, though: do whatever makes you happiest and the most comfortable.

I've seen weddings where both women wore dresses in the "lifestyle" section of my local newspaper, but I've never been to one (really really wanting to now)

Great answer! I agree. Each combo is common, but even if they weren't, you should do what makes you happy. Don't feel pressured to take on roles that don't reflect who you are. Not every wedding has a bride or a groom, even though some dykes do feel more comfortable as the groom (myself included). If you want to wear dresses, more power to you!
