I’m sorry but according to Wikipedia:

Under current Florida law, same-sex marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships are not recognized.

That sucks 🙁

Looks like you answered your own question.  Can you explain further what information you’re looking for?

I’m sure it would depend on the planner on the same sex thing. I’m having a Destination Wedding and went the planner route. SOOOO helpful. The nice thing about a package deal would be less work (good or bad b/c it will limit options).

whether or not a planner will be willing to do a same sex wedding will depend on the personal preferences/beliefs of the planner. you’ll have to call around and ask them.

How much personalization do you want? I hired a planner and was able to choose everything. The pro of a package deal is its probably less of a headache than picking everything out individually but you don’t get as many choices. If you go with a hotel they might have an event planner or someone that can help you too. I think regardless of what you choose to do location wise their views on gay marriage are going to depend on them personally.

  • Wedding: September 2011

My partner and I are having a destination wedding in Vermont and hired a wedding planner to coordinate the whole thing.  One of the things that was really important to us was that she, and every other vendor we worked with, was supportive of same-sex weddings.  We haven’t really had a problem so far, but we are planning in a state where it is legal.  I would contact those places with the packages and find out their policies and comfort levels.  If you hear any hesitation, I wouldn’t book there.  The last thing you want is for people to be uncomfortable with your wedding. 

So far the best part of wedding planning for us has been dealing with people who treat us like every other couple.  I wouldn’t pay my money to someone who felt otherwise.

Good luck!

Our experience was that most wedding vendors were supportive of same-sex marriage–if only because it is in their economic interest.  What I’d suggest is getting recommendations of planners, and then calling and asking how they feel about working with a same-sex couple.  If they are hostile, you don’t have to use them.
