Response: Hi Nick and congratulations on your plans!
I have never attended a same sex union, but have watched them on TV. The ones that I have seen on TV were very nice and elegant. I, personally, think it would be more elegant if you and your partner wear matching suits or tuxes. I would forgo the veil/train idea TOTALLY. I think that would take away and, since trains are not a normal part of a suit, in my opinion, it would not look right. I see flashes of Elvis with his cape before my eyes, or some sort of magician! Leave the veil and train to female brides. I would also leave the bouquet idea to female brides and bridesmaids. Its not to say you cant have a flower if you so choose, but I would go with the traditional boutonniere for each of you. You dont say where your ceremony is, such as in someones home, at a beach, etc. or if you are having a party after. If you want more flowers, you can incorporate beautiful flowers into the ceremony location and party afterwards with centerpieces, potted flowers, etc. Good luck with your plans!
