Same Sex Wedding Ceremony

While a lot of the major points are the same, the planning of a same sex wedding ceremony can be a bit different simply because there is an age-old laundry list of etiquette involved with many traditional weddings. Instead of just trying to make it up as you go along, there are some great tips that you can keep in mind that will make the planning of your ceremony and reception go a whole lot smoother. If you are hoping to have some gender-specific advice and a whole lot of inspiration, you will see that you can have the wedding of your dreams with some careful planning.

Know Your Timelines 

As a couple, you need to go over some major topics while you are putting everything together for your special day. You need to be sure that you have a clear budget in mind as well as a solid date so that the planning can begin. Next, you have to put together a guest list so that you can think of the perfect venue that will accommodate the number of people you will be having in attendance. Talk over who you would like to officiate your wedding and you can then move forward picking out things like the photographer, catering, entertainment, attire, and more. 

Coming Out To Vendors?

The unfortunate truth is that many couples are faced with the question as to whether or not they should ‘come out’ to their wedding vendors when making plans for their same sex wedding ceremony. The bottom line is that this is a more personal preference for the two of you. However, you should take into consideration being completely upfront with vendors when gender seems to be a major element for their service offerings.

Ceremony and Reception Goals 

This is the fun part of the entire process simply because this is your chance to show the two of you as a couple. Think about whether or not you are looking for a gender-neutral vibe and whether or not you are looking to make a statement. Take some time to discuss whether or not you are going to be writing your own vows and whether or not you are going to need to do some wedding dress shopping or tuxedo shopping for the both of you. One of the wonderful things about your big day is that this is your event – you have the ability to plan according to your lifestyle and you are celebrating with your friends and loved ones. 

When it comes to proposals, engagements, weddings, and everything in between, Young, Hip & Married is your number one outlet for gathering information and inspiration. Each couple is unique and you want to find what suits you best so that you can make memories that last for a lifetime. Whether you are looking for tips on how to write your vows or what the seating arrangement should be at your same sex wedding ceremony, we are here to help. This is your ultimate guide for finding an officiant, learning about modern wedding etiquette, and planning the ultimate event for your special day.
