Gober finds his subject matter in American suburban life of the 1950s and 1960s—the period of his childhood—focusing on the artifacts of everyday life and on attitudes and mores, particularly those involving gender and religion. Here the artist appears in the guise of a bride. About the wedding dress, he has remarked, "There's no comparable costume for a man that symbolizes this moment...we've only created this outfit for women."
