Searching for the perfect non-binary wedding outfit can be difficult, with so few brands marketing clothes as gender fluid or non-gender specific.
One of the most personal ways you can express yourself on your wedding day is through fashion - it’s the armour used to tell the world who you are. Wedding fashion isn’t, and should never be a ‘one size fits all’. Ultimately, there are no rules for what you can and can’t, should or shouldn’t wear to your own wedding.
Dressing to fit society’s depiction of a wedding couple is not a stereotype that we support here at Hitched. At the very least, your wedding outfit should feel like a representation of who you are. If you identify as non-binary, gender non-conforming, or fluid on the gender spectrum, it can be difficult to pin down a wedding day look that is representative of you - which is why we've rounded up some non-binary wedding outfits for you to swoon over.
Prepare for stylish looks, dramatic silhouettes, modern styling and a lot of colour!
How to Style a Non-Binary Wedding Look: 5 Expert Tips
As well as scouring high and low for the best non-binary wedding outfits, we’ve also enlisted the expert advice of Suzanne Bernie, a personal stylist who has worked within the LGBTQ+ communities for a number of years. With a focus on styling that is ‘less mainstream, more you’, her take on non-binary wedding styling should help anyone who us insure of what their W-day style could be.
- Think about the kind of look you want before looking for the clothing to match. For those who want to be a little adventurous with their style, think theatrical and seek out brands that match that. Those who would prefer more subtle styling, think muted colours and simple tailoring.
- Accessories are a great way to accentuate a non-binary outfit. Be it a pocket square, brooch, cravat or jewellery in the form of cufflinks or a necklace - using those finishing touches and accessories can really complete a look and instantly make it dressier. You could even express your personal style through your choice of socks or belts - the options are endless.
- Don’t forget the shoes! Shoes are the icing on top of any outfit, and there are a number of styles out there that can really complement a non-binary look no matter what your style taste is. Opt for a slip on shoe or lace up brogues for a smarter look, or cool wedding trainers or a funky boot for something alternative.
- Focus on the fit. Especially if you are the one getting married, you want to ensure that above all else, your outfit fits you properly. If an off-the-rack doesn’t sit quite right, consider getting a seamstress or tailor to fit it properly. If your top and bottom half are different sizes and you’re after a suit, seek out shops that sell pieces in separates to save on buying more than one size.
- Don’t be afraid to step a little out of your comfort zone. This is a time to ‘go for it’. Consider interesting colours, patterned shirts, prints you wouldn’t usually consider and maybe even a bow tie. It’s important that you feel completely comfortable, but shop around and try different things. You may surprise yourself at what suits you.

Non Binary Wedding Outfits: FAQs Answered.
Suzanne Bernie, personal stylist and fashion expert answers our non-binary wedding outfit FAQs on what to wear to a wedding as a non-binary guest, and as a non-binary person who is walking down the aisle.
I’m Non-Binary - What Can I Wear On My Wedding Day?
When a couple are getting married it’s always nice for you to dress differently. If both of you identify as non-binary and want to wear something different to one another, one of you could be in a fabulous ivory two or three piece suit which you can accessorise in any way you like. Think patterned satin cravats, bold pocket squares and the addition of a cool brooch.
To differ slightly, the other could don a cream or white jumpsuit. The style of wedding jumpsuit will depend on your taste and body shape, but there are so many options from wide-leg jumpsuits and cropped leg ones, to tailored jumpsuits and two-piece co-ords that look like one.
Of course, your outfits don’t need to be cream. If you choose to wear colours, ensure that both yours and your partner’s outfits match tonally and have a similar or complementary colour palette.
What Do I Wear To A Wedding if I'm Non-Binary?
As a non-binary person going to a wedding, consider opting for a cool trouser suit - but add your own twist - potentially an interesting colour. Depending on the season, this could be pale blue or pale yellow for summer or burgundy or dark green for winter. If opting for a more formal look, a three piece suit immediately ‘dresses up’ your look.
You could choose a printed waistcoat to go under your suit for a pop of vibrancy. If you’re planning on buying the pieces separately, ensure you choose the colours carefully so that each piece complements the others. Adding cool funky accessories, shoes and belts will make you stand out during the celebrations, but if you want to be more reserved go for more subdued colours and non shiny metals for the brooch or belt buckles.
Now you've got the outfit down, it must be time to start thinking about the pre-wedding celebrations. Before you start planning, read up on our ultimate guide to sten-dos, the gender-neutral pre-wedding party!
