Male maid of honor dress???

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

So my friend of over 10 years is getting married and we have always been very close. She knows that I love to crossdress and act female also. I've been out with her numerous times and also often dress as a female when were hanging out with our mutual gf's(several of which are bridesmaids). Now she asked me if I would be her maid of honor along with her 5 bridesmaids...

She wants me to do everything a maid of honor does, including throwing the bachelorette party, helping her get dressed for the wedding, and wants me to look EXACTLY like the other bridesmaids(dress, hair, makeup, jewelry, shoes, everything) for the wedding/reception. I would love to do all this and I know shed love it too, but I'm nervous about looking weird or not passing as a girl and hurting her day...she promises me itll be fine and she wont care and she prefers me to match the bridesmaids...what do you all think?

P.S. Here's a few pics of me as a girl and a link to the bridesmaid dress

I think you should do it! I'm very sure she has thought of all the possibilities as well as the fact she knows it would tickle you pink to be able to do something like that with her. I'm sure when your day comes, she will be on your own list of attendees.

Lol I know she will be whenever I actually meet the man of my dreams(which will prob be never!). I would absolutely die to be a bride!

haha can't you just go to David's Bridal and ask for a fitting? you don't have to commit or anything right?

Yes of course I can go get fitted, and I know shell tell me I look amazing either way. I just want to make sure I look passable to everybody there and I dont cause any confusion at her wedding! She really really wants me to so I think I'm giong to, but I just worry a little...

Re: Male maid of honor dress???

I think you should do it, clearly she wants you to be a very special part of her wedding. I don't think by any means you'll stick out like a sore thumb or ruin her wedding in any way. I seriously doubt you being there will cause a stir at her wedding, you look totally passable as a female you have such a pretty face =) (By the way this may sound odd but you have gorgeous teeth lol)

Just take part in everything that the bride and the rest of her bridal party do, getting fitted for your dress getting your hair and make up done and etc. and just make sure you have a good time =)

Do it! From the pictures, I'd said you could definitely pull it off - I reckon you'll look absolutely gorgeous. Honestly, if anybody tries to make a fuss then they will probably be the ones hurting her day, not you.

Re: Male maid of honor dress???

I know I know but I'm nervous that Ill stick out because of my height and voice. I'm 5'10" and in heels I'll be over 6 feet! And my shoe size is 12 and my voice isnt very girly . I think ppl would figure it out pretty quickly...

Do it! Even if people did figure out you're not a real girl, who cares? If they don't like it, that's their problem, not yours! The bride wants you in her wedding party, that's all that matters!

It's her day. Let her have what she wants! You'll look better than some women in that dress. The bride and groom's family are ok with it?

Re: Male maid of honor dress???

OK first of YOU ARE GORGEOUS. You can pass for a female any day. Trust me I worked in a night club for a very long time and often had to try and guess if women were really women for ladies night. Trust me. You'll pull it off. You're beautiful.

Agreed. If you're looking for confirmation that you're beautiful, you are. BTW I'm 5'10" too (huge feet and all), gotta work with what we've got. If you're taking the responsibilities you deserve the honor.

Re: Male maid of honor dress???

You should SO do it!! :-D You look beautiful, and you should never give up a chance to let yourself be free if it is something you REALLY want to do!! Heck, I was offered the same thing about a year back, and I had to decline the offer because I wasn't really 'out' yet, and didn't need to rush the exposure curve to everyone else. Now though, I'm just waiting for the next chance.. he he

Have fun being beautiful and pampered for the day!

That's the only concern I would have. There's nothing like tension to wreck a beautiful day. I would ask her if her/his family are aware and ok with it. They may not deliberately try to embarrass you but a shocking response is also just as embarrassing. A wedding is a family affair.

At my wedding, my DH's uncle decided to announce he had knocked up his GF and they were getting married a month from that day just before the start of the ceremony!!!

Re: Male maid of honor dress???

Ok so to update everybody, we all went to try on the bridesmaids dresses over the weekend at David's bridal. It went amazing! None of the girls there seemed to notice at all that I was a boy, or at least that I could tell. I did pluck my eyebrows and had them do my makeup and hair before so that I could pass as well as possible though.

We all tried on the dresses together along with the bride in her dress, it was so much fun! The girls were very protective of me and helped me with my dress and even helped me shop for a strapless bra before we went(34B). I even got a size 6, there was no way I thought I'd fit into a 6 but the girl said a 6 would be perfect for me, I'm so happy and can't wait for the wedding now!!

I know it's been a while since the wedding but I would love to hear how the wedding went?  Do you have any pictures you could share?  I bet you looked amazing.  You look just beautiful in the pictures you provided.

All the best,

Tawni

claps.gifgoldcup.gifI also agree go & make her day happy. Just be yourself. So what if you are 6 foot or have a size 12. You deserve to share her day in no matter what way she wants you there. Remember this it is your time to shine for the bride. People are gonna talk if not about you than about something they didn't care for at the event. Shine on my friend Shine on.
