This is a trope about fictional portrayals of gay men's weddings, in which one of them will invariably be wearing a white tuxedo, and the other a black tuxedo. The reason for this trope is that a white tuxedo functions as a man's take on the bride's white dress. Sometimes, a GenderFlip will be seen in which two women marry and one of them, usually a ButchLesbian, wears [[{{Bifauxnen}} a black tuxedo, pantsuit, or skirt suit]] while the other, often a LipstickLesbian, wears a traditional wedding dress.

There's some TruthInTelevision to this, but many gay couples in RealLife avoid this simply by dressing the same or at least not following the black/white dynamic. But since there's no clear-cut image in the mainstream consciousness of what a gay wedding is suppose to look like, such couples arguably have more freedom than straights in picking and choosing which traditions to keep or discard.
