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.

Sad News! Melissa and Tammy Lynn Etheridge Split!

http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/stopthepresses/154108/melissa-etheridge-splits-with-wife-of-7-years/

Melissa and Tammy Lynn are splitting up! Perez Hilton reported it first early this morning. The article linked here has more details. I like the part where the writer refers to them as one of those celebrity couples that other people admire for being together for a long time. It's sweet.

What to wear Emergency! - posted on theknot.com

http://gay.weddings.com/Sites/Weddings/Pages/Main.aspx/special-topic-wedding-boards_gay-weddings_wear-emergency?MsdVisit=1

Here is an example of why I started this blog! This woman doesn't know what to wear to her wedding or where to shop for an outfit. Members suggested that she try Men's Warehouse, Express for Men and J Crew. What do you think? Good ideas? How will the salespeople respond when they know they are helping a lesbian shop for her wedding outfit?

Survey on Queer Wedding Fashion

This survey asks some great questions about queer wedding fashion and how folks feel about wedding traditions and symbols and how they would like to interpret them in their own weddings. It's a project for a fashion design class at California College of the Arts.

Jane Lynch and Lara Embry are getting hitched! And they want you to go to the NCLR Gala this year. I was there last year at the next table when they met and fell in love. I wonder what they'll wear to their wedding.

Check out the video they made!
