lesbian weddings

YAY, LESBIAN WEDDINGS! We celebrate all identities within the LGBT umbrella, including transgender weddings, gay weddings, and bisexuality, as well nonbinary and non-binary gender identity issues. If you want to talk fashion, darlings, be sure to check out our two brides, two dresses posts (for lesbian weddings where both partners wore gowns), and our bride in pants archive, which features lots of straight brides too, and SO MUCH non-dress wedding attire inspiration.
