Planning a same-sex wedding can be the same as planning any other wedding in countries like Denmark, where people and law both accept same sex marriage. However, this is still a taboo in many counties. Even if some countries have legally accepted LGBT weddings, but citizens are still not accepting same sex marriage. These facts often make LGBT wedding planning for the couple or family members somewhat difficult, but trust me, there is nothing to worry about.
We, Elsinore Wedding, have arranged dozens of same sex weddings at beautiful and romantic destinations in Denmark. From complete privacy to preferred destination decoration, we had taken care of everything to ensure when a same sex couple comes to get married in Denmark, all couple does is enjoy the ceremony and their stay in Denmark. Based on our experience, we would like to give some handy tips to plan and arrange an LGBT wedding.
The first and foremost thing to think about is the wedding venue. As mentioned earlier, not all countries or people accept same sex marriages. Wedding is a big day and therefore, getting married at a place where the whole experience will be beautiful and filled with only good memories is necessary. For example, Denmark is the first country that legalized same sex marriage, and people here respect others and their preferences. You can get married in Denmark or choose any other country, which can give a great wedding experience. Remember, once you choose a country, you will also need to select the final venue, where you will take vows with your partner.
2. Hire professionals well in advance
If you hire a wedding planner, the rest will be handled by the planner herself. However, if you choose to arrange everything on your own, then make sure you arrange everything well in advance. Some of the tips to keep in mind here are as below:
- Hire a local professional photographer to capture the memory lane
- There is no need to follow the same dress as all other LGBT couples follow. You can wear your style, but for that, you need to make sure you get your dresses at least one week in advance.
- Legal aspects. If you want to arrange a civil marriage ceremony, you would need to take care of some paperwork.
3. Break the norms
The most beautiful thing about same sex marriage is making a new way and does what the heart says. A heart filled with emotions and love takes all decisions. There are many things an LGBT couple can do to make the wedding memorable and fun such as:
- Walk hand in hand down the aisle
- Decide to see each other before the marriage ceremony and have a photographer to capture the emotions
- Write your own vows
