What advice would you give to engaged LGBTQ+ couples?

Our advice is to take your time planning and saving. Wedding planning should be fun and exciting, not stressful and exhausting. Be patient with family, friends and most importantly, with each other. On the really hard days, don’t forget why you chose each other!

Did you have a bach (bachelor or bachelorette) party?

We had a joint bachelorette weekend in Miami.

What challenges did you face as an LGBTQ+ couple planning your wedding?

Luckily, we worked with an amazing group of vendors who never made us feel uncomfortable. Everyone at the venue was very accommodating and kind. Our wedding coordinator went above and beyond for us. We developed a good relationship with the officiant. Everything was perfect. We are blessed. Think positive and positive things will happen. Do not allow anyone to ruin what should be the best day of your life!

Did you encounter any pleasant surprises as an LGBTQ+ couple planning your wedding?

The most pleasant surprise was realizing that not everyone in the world is ugly. Every vendor that contributed to our wedding was a pleasure to work with.
