My fiance loves to wear a bow tie and suit jacket, and equally loves to wear little dresses — and she’s at an absolute loss as to what to wear for our July 2014 wedding! She’s got a faux-hawk with the sides of her head shaved, and loves playing with gender expectations. Sometimes she’s soft-butch, sometimes she’s femme.
Whether you’re looking to make your own menswear accessories, or your own femswear accessories, we’ve got you covered. Suspenders are so chic, can be easily personalized, and are so easy to make!
As someone who has never really adhered to the concept of “gender” and felt like I fall somewhere on the scale between tomboy and androgynous, I was surprised to find planning for my wedding made me feel unexpectedly girly. I fought it for a little while, but eventually decided to just go with it. Wearing makeup and doing my hair for one day didn’t make me a new person, it was just the side of me that decided to pop out for the occasion.
Corsets, sword canes, cat cupcake toppers, and a stylin’ gender-neutral party of “wing people.” That’s the fun in store with this celebration of throwing caution and gender to the wind. Plus, there’s a heaping helping of gothic Victorian fashion.
Bex and Cort planned a fab outdoor ceremony complete with lots of traditional and alternative takes on Jewish traditions, and were both fashion plates on top of it. Lots of laughter (including dad’s “presentation” speech and mad emcee skills) and lots of personalization made this day all theirs.
With a budget the size of one month’s rent, this thrifty couple capitalized on the talents of friends and family to create an intimate and musical wedding with vegan flair. Their outdoor ceremony may have been rained out, but the indoor alternative amplified the music and they preferred it in the end. Crisis averted.
