Wedding Dresses For Men

Wedding Dresses | February 24 2010 | by Jenny | 4 Comments

We have seen many bride women, but what about men? Have we seen any wedding dresses for men? Out of the any constraining legality, the gay community has earned the right to step down the aisle side by side with the female brides. Not only homosexuals are searching hard for a wedding gown, but transvestite, transsexual, transgender or cross/dressing men as well.


The judging part stops where it starts actually, because as long as women are “allowed” to wear paints, shorts and large shirts, why men can not feel free to wear whatever they find it a little more feminine than they really are? If it’s not pure conviction, then it is at leat some kind of curiosity or flattering feeling to stand four a couple of hours in woman’s shoes.

If finding a dress could be extremely delicate and difficult for the ladies, imagine how troubling must be for the guys to fit in a dress. Although they might not have always dreamt of wearing a dress on their wedding day, this mission is almost impossible for most of men. Firstly, because traditional wedding sores can’t provide such wedding dressings for the men and specialized boutiques are almost inexistent.

Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that bride-men should limit their expectation or their imagination regarding to their wedding gown. No, not at all. In fact, many of those who decide to bind in holly matrimony with their male partner are doing quite well projecting their own dresses, since designers from all over the world are hardly waiting to create them. Worse case scenario is buying a second-hand dress, already worn, by another woman mostly. But the most common case is when a man-bride is using the internet to find those shops that are dealing with this kind of issue.

Difficulties may occur in the dress sizes and how it fits with the male body, but this is not an impassable obstacle. So, before ordering, men should pay a lot of attention to those obvious common differences that are between their body structure and the female proportions. Any measurement which will be taken between the male body and the dress should be very precised. It is recommended that an experienced tailor should take care of this process, because the risks that the gown won’t fit to the bride-man are quite big.

Design is very important in picking the right wedding dress for a man. The more so because, as for women, there are certain types of gowns that look good with their body features. The chest and the biceps of a man may be as well hidden underneath a sleeved wedding dress. As for the style of the gown, one should choose what goes best with his character and personality: thematic, informal, extravagant or simple.11

    I *love* the idea of men in wedding dresses! What a fun idea.

    That first guy looks so cute and the second one looks good too! I guess I just like the juxtaposition of big tough guy in a flowing elegant dress.

    You can certainly see your enthusiasm within the paintings you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.
