Say I Do! stands as a pillar for love and equality and is the revered event for gay and lesbian couples and singles alike in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area.

Colby and DJ Edward Daniels of Scorpio Entertainment and will feature over two dozen vetted and approved LGBT-affirming businesses, informative workshops, dessert tastings, over $5,000 in raffles and prizes and much more. Hundreds of couples from all states around the DC metro area and beyond come to Say I Do! each year to learn not only how to plan a wedding, but also receive critical information on starting a family, financial planning and relationship counsel as it pertains to LGBT couples.
Say I Do attendees will have the chance to win a myriad of prizes, such as a custom-designed veil or a custom-designed vest and tie from White Dress by Greta Kay; $500 off The Forever Wedding Collection PLUS a free Premium Lay flat Wedding Album from CYork Photography; a Schott Zwiesel Pure Decanter from Bloomingdale’s Chevy Chase and a wine package from Say I Do!

Only registered attendees are eligible to win. You must be present to accept the prizes.
The Say I Do! Wedding Expo is the ultimate LGBT wedding and marriage destination for before and after your I dos. Explore the rock star expo with other excited same-gender couples who are eager to meet LGBT-friendly wedding businesses and attend workshops designed to address issues as they relate to our community.
As the total event usually lasts about four hours, please dress casually and comfortably and be photo-ready for CYork Photography, the in-house paparazzi, and a photo booth hosted by EKate Photography.
