Planning a same-sex couple wedding and trying to decide what you should (and shouldn’t) do? A wedding is a wedding, so our rule of thumb is: Do everything you would in a more traditional wedding.
At PAPYRUS, we’ve got gay wedding ideas (and cards and invites!) galore. So read on for our quick guide on everything from etiquette ideas to invitations. And if you’re a guest at a same-sex wedding, make sure you check out our lines of same-sex wedding cards to add to your gift!
Forget Convention. Set aside the notion of what you’re supposed to do. This is your big day, and you should celebrate as you choose, and invite those whom you choose. Not comfortable with a less-than-accepting family member or friend? Don’t invite them. You do you!
Plan Your Parties. So what if you’re bachelor and bachelor, or bachelorette and bachelorette? You can still plan separate parties and celebrate with your friends, whether it’s a simple dinner and drinks out or a weeklong getaway to Vegas.
Vet Your Vendors. While it’s 2018, you know the current political atmosphere. And while most people are inclusive (or, at the very least, willing to take your money), read online reviews to find bakeries, churches, honeymoon locations, or venues that are accepting of same-sex couples. You don’t want to give your business to someone who’s not LGBTQA-friendly.
Figure Out Who Pays for What. Defy traditional roles and simply come to an agreement on who will pay for what beforehand. You, the couple, may even decide to foot some or all of the bill.
Figure Out Your Processional Order. Shake off the traditions and go the custom route. Want both brides to process down the aisle together? Cool. Do both grooms want to walk single file with their parents beside them? Great. Again, do what works for you!
