What is this blog all about?

It is often said that every little girl grows up dreaming about her wedding day. Perhaps there is some truth to that. But what if that little girl is a tomboy, or a jock, or a lesbian, or a boy? When we grow up, how do we make our dreams a reality?

As queer folks, we are continually redefining marriage and family. With that comes redefining weddings and style. Imagine your wedding. What would you wear? What did you wear? Where would you shop for it? How do you find the perfect outfit when you don't fit into a tidy little box? Please send me your thoughts and pictures so we can create a resource for all the queer folks out there who don't know what to wear to their weddings.

Melissa and Tammy Lynn

These are some shots of what Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels wore for their 2003 wedding. Badgley Mischka designed their outfits. Those boys sure do know their way around a bead!
InStyle Weddings magazine was there, and they featured the event on their celebrity weddings television show.

Ellen and Portia

Here is a lovely photo of what Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi wore on their wedding day during that 5 1/2 month window when gay folks were allowed to get married in California. Their attire was custom designed for them by Zac Posen. Don't they look great? Unfortunately, most of us do not have the connections and/or funds to have a well-known fashion designer put our outfits together. So what do you do? How can you create a look for yourselves that is as special as their look is?
