20 Inspiring and Beautiful Lesbian Brides

I scoured Instagram looking for some of the most beautiful lesbian brides around.

Before we get to that list, I wanted to share with you a quote from one of my favorite movies.

Jenny’s Wedding is a 2015 romantic comedy-drama movie. Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) and her partner/roommate, Kitty Friedman (Alexis Bledel) want to get married and start a family.

The problem is that Jenny’s conservative Catholic family don’t know she’s gay. And when they do find out about the couple’s plans, they are left with a simple and difficult choice – either change with it or drown.

My favorite quote from the movie comes from Jenny’s dad, Eddie Farrell (Tom Wilkinson) when he tells Jenny- “When you meet the right person, you go the distance.  And let me tell you about the distance.  Everybody changes.  If you’re with the right person, and they change, you meet the right person all over again.”

Now, on to those gorgeous brides!

Tips For Planning For a Lesbian Wedding 

Preparing for the perfect day with your loved one doesn’t have to be tricky and expensive. Thanks to legal protections, laws advocating for same-sex marriage, the world adjusting to gay and lesbian weddings, and several inspiring lesbian brides you can emulate, planning for a memorable wedding is more exciting and straightforward than ever.

Still, like preparing for any wedding, without a proper approach, it will be stressful. So, here are 8 helpful tips to guide you on occasion: 

1. Gender Identity

Be prepared to have answers to somewhat intimidating questions like ‘who’s the bride?’ Wedding vendors, some family members and friends may raise this question. So, cool your gut and boldly answer that we both are!

2. Wedding Decor

There should be no fuss about the ideal types of decorations. So don’t stress about the perfect flowers, chandeliers, lights and centerpieces to decorate your wedding day. The most important thing is that the couple is happy and in love with their favorite people around to celebrate the occasion. So include decorations you both like and spice them with creative handmade centerpieces. 

3. Costs

Weddings can be costly. Budget for all the expenses you might incur on your wedding day, from clothes, rings, flowers, makeup, decor, wedding bands, and food to flowers and champagne. Cost-wise, do they exceed your budget? If that’s the case, figure out what to scrape off the list together with the your-to-be bride. But remember to include the things you both have been obsessing over.

Also, some wedding vendors are willing to offer discounts for lesbian weddings, so go for such to plan for your big day. 

4. Wedding Invites

Remember to include the clause ‘attend only if comfortable’ when sending wedding invites. This will help prevent drama from family members and friends who might not be comfortable with the wedding proceedings due to religious beliefs or personal convictions. 

5. Wedding Traditions

Are there any wedding traditions you want to include on your big occasion? From past experiences, only a few heterosexual wedding traditions fit with lesbian ceremonies. I recommend foregoing any wedding traditions that could backfire and sticking to a unique plan that resonates with both of you. 

6. Wedding Attire

When choosing appropriate dress codes, many brides get stuck on the perfect wear for their big occasion. Either they can’t find matching dresses, or one wants to go on with a suit. So first, you should shop together to ensure the outfits match and that you both relish them. Also, consider outsourcing an expert designer to make custom lesbian outfits for your big ceremony. 

7. Walking down the aisle

Walking down the aisle on your wedding day is among the most exciting and memorable activities. So, it’s best for both of you to get it right. You can decide to walk together holding hands or borrow from straight marriages where your parents walk you down the aisle. Settle for the most favorable option for all parties to avoid embarrassment on your wedding day. 

8. Honeymoon

Finally, remember to plan for the best and most exciting part, your honeymoon! Remember, not all countries or states accept same-sex couples. So, do your research before and settle for a destination you are both comfortable and welcome. Learn more from our favorite post: 9 Best LGBT Honeymoon Destinations Around The World
