With the legalization of same-sex marriage in California, many gay couples will soon be tying the knot. Fashion maven Carson Kressley, of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy fame, gives advice for gay couples planning their weddings.

Kressley suggests:

Don't wear matching outfits. Kressley suggests wearing what expresses your individuality best. "One guy might look better in something that's a three-button, one guy might look better in something that's a two-button," he says.

Avoid the white suit. It often looks too '70s, Kressley warns. Wear cream or eggshell instead.

Drag is OK. Just make sure it's "good drag," Kressley says.

Don't do costumed theme weddings. Looking back, it might look silly.

So what would Kressley wear to his own wedding? "Probably a navy tux," Kressley says.
