Editor's Note: This post is part two of a series, "Love & Marriage, LLP", on the wedding planning process of two lesbian women. - Feminista Jones
G and I are SO THRILLED about planning our wedding. My Pinterest board is fired way up and we are having the best time thinking about all of the beautiful and way-too-expensive ways we want to decorate the room and each other. The attire for the day, however, is proving a bit stressful. Originally, G thought she might want to wear a suit, but then decided doing that didn't quite feel special enough. A suit was too much like going to work, or to court, for her. I knew I wanted to wear a gown from the beginning, and now my beloved is deep into the gown process, too.

I'm going to help you out, wedding dress overlords. Here are some simple things you could do to make more brides-to-be feel better when they're shopping for your dresses.
