Congratulations! My fiance and I are also getting married next June! We’ve only just started the planning process, but one thing we are going to have are white knots that our guests can wear to show support for marriage equality. http://www.whiteknot.org Other than that, we are going to have a few fun extras for the reception such as a photo booth and signature cocktails. We are still deciding and looking for inspiration as well. Happy planning!

Congratulations!  I know there are lots of resources out there for LGBTQ weddings–including http://www.gayweddings.com where you can find LGBTQ-friendly vendors.  I know there have been other beautiful weddings posted around the site from lesbian bees, maybe you can find some inspiration there?  Happy planning!

congrats! one of the most beautiful weddings i was ever a part of was when one of my best friends married her wife. i am trying to pinpoint exactly what made it so amazing and i think really it was just that they did everything so that it felt like them. they also had people choose readings for the ceremony that the couple didnt hear until they were being read. watching their faces as they heard the words chosen by their friends for them was when everyone started to tear up!

My wife and I were married three years ago.  Our wedding planning site is here, and a page I did on special issues we faced as a same-sex couple is here.  About 90% of wedding planning is just the same regardless of the genders of the couple, but we found glitches in some surprising areas.

@rosher29:  

Hiya! I’m getting married to my fiancee in October, so very soon.  There were some things that were not necessarily difficult to navigate, but it does surprise you when it comes to it.  Mostly, it comes down to social etiquette and both being on board with saying or responding to stupid questions, ignorant vendors, and/or what you both envision your wedding day as.  KT told me that as long as she was there, and marrying me, she didn’t care what I did.  As time went on, I would ask her opinion on things I felt were important to her; for instance, she’s an artist, so I knew the cake’s decorations and general look would appeal and be important.  We had such a blast at our cake tasting and talking with our baker about what we wanted. I even let her pick the flavors.  She strutted around on Cloud 9 for a while afterwards.  

Silly people, or rude people (depending on their intentions) will probably butt in and ask you whether or not you’ll both be wearing dresses, or “Who’s the groom, ha ha ha.” >:( We found the response to this comment, and other ignorant comments to be easy: Kill them with kindness.  Get excited about your fashion, and then gab away randomly about fabrics, cuts, and fit. They’ll soon realize that they were rude, or if they really were trying to be nicely curious and didn’t pull it off, they might be great sounding boards. KT is wearing ivory, like me, though she is wearing a tuxedo. If your Fiance is wearing a pantsuit or tuxedo from a typical “men’s” shoppe, be sure to ask your friends for past experiences with these shops. We chose to rent from a Tuxedo Junction branch out of an alterations shop over 45 minutes away from us, because the TJ at the mall nearest us was very cold the last time we rented a tux from them when we stood up in my cousin’s wedding party. The branch we went with came highly recommended from many of our women friends who prefer to wear dapper evening stylings. 😉

I hope this began to help you.  A lot of the resources listed above I would have suggested as well, so please take them into account.  I know my favorite of all was onabicyclebuiltfortwo.com.

Good luck!
