4 Tips for a Successful LGBTQ Wedding in Connecticut
1. Celebrate Big
The union of same-sex couples in the U.S. is rapidly increasing. With all the reasons in the world to celebrate their union, this also means having an event as big and as lavish as different-sex couples have traditionally done for their vows. Remember, this is your big day – don’t hold back!
2. Break out the Traditions
There is no written handbook on how a wedding should or shouldn’t be done. Today’s couples are loving full-heartedly. If you want to tie in some old-school traditions, like a first dance, engagement ring exchange, or even having a shower in anticipation of the big day, plan to do them all! Whatever makes your special day memorable is what matters most.
3. Meet with Vendors
For couples of all kinds, meeting with vendors ahead of their wedding event plays a key role in the success of your day. You should get a feel for the location, communicate your overall vision, taste the food that will be served to guests and have good vibes in advance. When you’re working with people you trust on your big day, it can make all the difference!
4. Remember, Love is Love
There’s no better way to celebrate love than a wedding. The love between couples, families, and friends all gathering to commemorate this step in the newlyweds’ lives is all the more reason to host a festivity. Wherever and whenever you plan to have your wedding, remember, this is a day you will long cherish so make sure it includes everything you’ve always dreamed of.
