What are the most important things that LGBT couples should consider when planning their wedding?

I think this is very market specific. In San Diego, the date and time are the most important considerations for our San Diego LGBT Beach Weddings. Coastal locations are less busy or more busy, depending on the day of the week, time of day, and time of year. We have tons of experience working at the beaches, coastal parks and cliffs in San Diego and can help couples choose the best location, based on each couple's specific vision.

In your opinion, what are the main benefits to getting married?
Having the legal right to formally express and affirm your love and commitment for each other would be at the top of the list!

Once an LGBT couple decides to get married, what should their next steps be?
  • Choose a wedding date or dates
  • Determine your budget
  • Decide on style / size of wedding... large, small and intimate, casual, formal, reception hall or restaurant
  • Decide on location... beach, park, backyard, resort, golf course, church
  • Search for gay-friendly vendors

Do you have any advice for LGBT couples planning their wedding?
Just have fun and don't stress too much about the details! It doesn't have to be perfect and you don't have to make everyone else happy. Embrace the wedding planning process and hire someone with experience to help, if it is in your budget, follow your heart and enjoy the celebration of your commitment to each other!
