The Equally Wed Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2021 Equally Wed Awards.

The Equally Wed Awards honor the best LGBTQ+ inclusive wedding pros and venues around the globe.

The polls are now open to submit your nominations. You do not have to nominate someone in every category in order to submit your favorites.

Getting married or already tied the knot? Nominate your favorite LGBTQ+ inclusive wedding pros!

Work in the wedding industry? Invite your clients and colleagues to nominate you for an Equally Wed Award—and, of course, nominate your fellow pros who you know to be LGBTQ+ inclusive.

Nominees do not need to be LGBTQ+, only LGBTQ+ inclusive. Click here to understand what LGBTQ+ inclusive means.



Equally Wed award winners are chosen through a public voting process. We first accept nominations from the public during our nomination period. After our nomination period ends, we compile the submissions of the most nominated people/companies and then review all finalists to confirm they exemplify LGBTQ+ inclusivity. We then open up a voting period to allow the public to vote for the No. 1 LGBTQ+ inclusive vendor in each award category. After the voting period ends, Equally Wed will compile all final results to announce the winner in each award category.

The 2021 Equally Wed Awards nomination period begins on April 2, 2021 and ends April 23, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

Finalists will be announced on May 3, 2021.

Our voting period will open on May 3, 2021 and end on May 21, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

Award winners will be announced on June 7, 2021.

No. Nominations and winners are chosen solely by our submission and voting process, which is free to submitters, nominees and award recipients. However, Equally Wed does reserve the right to reject any nomination or winner if Equally Wed determines they are not LGBTQ+ inclusive.

Our 2020 Equally Wed Award winners are listed here and we encourage companies to continue to celebrate and promote their past win(s). If you are a past winner and you need access to a past winner or finalist badge, please email us at
