What should a Best Woman wear? #Fashion Porn#dia de los muertos#forest#gender-blind wedding party#groomsgirl#santa cruz July 20 | Ariel Meadow Stallings offbeatariel Not only does Alex & Mark's wedding (recently captured by none other than my Managing Editor Megan!) look like a slice of forest magic … but they provide a great answer to the question: when you're having a gender-blind wedding party, what should the Best Woman wear if she wants to look feminine, but still like she's a part of the groom's wedding party and not the bride's? Well, here's your solution: A black dress with the same custom silk-screened tie as the groomsman!

What about bridesmen? 2 agree Lots of answers to that question over here: http://offbeatbride.com/tag/gender-blind-wedding-… 0 agree I'm going to go out on a limb here and say there is one more logical step to this line of thought… We're not having a divided wedding party. They are all "our wedding party" not bride's party and groom's party. I know not everyone can do this, but for couples who have been together for ages, I think it's a natural enough thing to do. Plus, then no one has to look like anyone but themselves Not that this outfit isn't hot hot hot. 3 agree I love this – she looks super hot! 1 agrees Isn't this the third Santa Cruz wedding on Offbeat Bride this month? As a Santa Cruzian I'm feeling proud. What other town of this size gets this much attention on OBB? 0 agree Things come in clusters on OBB — we had a cluster of Wai Ching dresses, a cluster of Lasertron bouquets, a cluster of Australia weddings, and now a little cluster of Santa Cruz weddings. It's not completely intentional, but not completely unintentional either. 0 agree Actually, it only answered half the question because this is the amazing back of the outfit: http://www.flickr.com/photos/megantharpe/3740505547/ 0 agree HA! Your answer is way better than mine. 0 agree I'm actually going to be a groomswoman in my friends' upcoming wedding. I've basically been given free reign to wear whatever I want. I'm quite the girly girl normally, so everyone expects me to wear some sort of dress, but I'm thinking about wearing a feminine pantsuit with heels. I want to be my own person while still blending in the rest of the guys. 0 agree damn , she nailed it, she looks the part and sexy at the same time-well done! 0 agree I was married this year, I'm also the guy standing next to Groomswoman in the "back" shot, and I also had a woman as a groomswoman. My friend wore the same tuxedo that the men wore. She wore a different pair of black slacks that fit her figure more appropriately and they gave her a boys jacket in the same cut. She looked absolutely amazing. 1 agrees […] seen this wedding before when Ariel raved about the "best woman's" amazing outfit.
