Planning the perfect wedding can be stressful. Same-sex couples have the added challenge of ensuring that the wedding vendors they use are comfortable and, in some cases, willing to perform services. The bottom line is to plan early and be open during the planning process if you want your wedding day to flow smoothly.
Finding vendors who will provide the services you want while respecting and honoring your commitment is vital. Wedding vendors in most many states cannot legally refuse to perform their services based on the client’s’ sexual orientation. The best place to start is with a wedding planner. If you know of an LGBT or LGBT-friendly wedding planner, then you are likely off the hook for a lot of this work. They will undoubtedly have a team of LGBT-friendly service providers they work well with and can recommend. This is the easiest way to knock out the bulk of the vendor selection fast so you can focus on the other details.Finally, there is nothing that says you have to have this conversation with a service provider. Gay marriage is no longer a new thing in most places, so you may be surprised how easy it is to find wedding vendors of every kind ready and eager to be a part of your special day.
A special note for wedding professionals: same-sex weddings are, in many ways, no different than opposite-gender weddings. However, it’s important to understand the nuances and the special considerations that may be involved.
