Tips For Choosing An LGBTQ Wedding Destination

Below are tips for choosing an LGBTQ wedding destination:

1. Learn The Local Laws

It’s no secret that marriage equality isn’t a federal mandate in every country. Even more, countries have anti-discrimination laws, which protect LGBTQ couples when it comes to gay rights and marriages. So research the local regulations for your preferred destination before making your final decision on where you will tie the knot.

2. Get A Feel For The Destination’s Culture

There are places in the world that tend to be much more accepting of same-sex couples than others. Some place’s laissez-faire cultures have such an open mentality; you’ll find plenty of vendors who will happily serve your wedding even if they don’t necessarily support it themselves. Think about where you’ve traveled personally, whether or not those friends from home would want to go there, and what you know about different locations around the globe before picking an LGBTQ wedding destination.

3. Research

If you are considering hosting your same-sex wedding abroad, be sure to consult with friends or family who have gone through the experience. They might know of specific destinations that offer LGBTQ weddings. You can also begin by searching for destination venues in these areas and seeing which suits your tastes best.
