LGBT+ couples face a reality straight couples don’t: possible rejection from wedding vendors.
Here’s a couple recommendations on how to find some LGBT+ wedding vendors:
Word Of Mouth
Tapping into your existing network is always the most powerful. With social media, it’s very easy to post and find referrals.
LBGT+ Tradeshow Attending trade shows is a great way to get in front of vendors who want your business. Even if you can’t attend, many post their vendor lists that you can access after the show.
Many vendors sign up for free listings. GayWeddings.com is my go-to recommendation for couples.
Searching for LGBT+ wedding vendors on google is a surefire to way to find some ideas.
As you research wedding vendors, here are a few pointers to think about:
Do you see images of LGBT+ couples on the vendor’s homepage/social media?
Do you see the use of non-gendered and inclusive language in questionnaires, contact forms, etc (“The Couple” vs “Bride & Groom”)?
Does the vendor explicitly say all couples are welcome?
