OUR PROCESS EXPLAINED

Nominations for Equally Wed Awards were opened in January 2020. For several weeks, nominations were open for the public to nominate the best LGBTQ+ inclusive vendors and venues in the wedding industry. On Feb. 15, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern, we closed nominations. The vendors and venues who get the most nominations in their category advanced to the voting round. Polls opened on March 13, 2020 and the public voted for their favorite LGBTQ+ inclusive vendors and venues. Voting ended on March 31, 2020. The finalists with the most votes won in their respective categories. We had one tie with the exact amount of votes.

All winners were notified by email and sent a badge. If you are a winner and did not receive your badge, please contact us.

Congratulations to all our winners and finalists, and thank you to the community for voting.
