Same-sex weddings are no different to a wedding between a man and a woman. You’re still going to stress about the minor details and worry about rain.
The structure of your day will be the same; there’s a ceremony, a meal, speeches and then a great big party with cake and dancing. But there are a few details that same-sex couples might feel conflicted about.
To help your day run smoothly, we recommend following these dos and don’ts for planning your perfect same-sex wedding.
Do throw tradition out of the window
Wedding tradition dictates that the groom asks the bride’s father for permission and gets down on one knee. Feel free to throw tradition out of the window when you get proposed. And carry this sentiment into your wedding planning.
Modern weddings are made up of lots of old traditions compiled into one day. The first thing to remember when planning your wedding is that you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. Instead, you can pick and choose the traditions that work for you.
Your wedding is a celebration of your love, so if speeches make your toes curl, don’t include them. And if you want signature cocktails instead of champagne, then we’ve got just the supplier. Harbour And Coupe serve custom cocktails from behind an antique piano – just the thing for a music-loving couple.
