The original wedding planner for gays and lesbians--now updated in light of recent legalizations of gay marriage--and as useful, witty and inspiring as ever.
Fraught with logistical and social pitfalls, wedding planning is never easy--but for gay and lesbian couples, it presents unique challenges. Traditional wedding advice doesn’t address the particular issues facing same-sex spouses-to-be. With notable foresight, Tess Ayers and Paul Brown published the first edition of this book in 1994, when legal same-sex marriage was only a dream. Today, as same-sex marriage continues its state-by-state march to legality, this updated edition is more relevant and helpful than ever.
Bursting with real-life anecdotes and surprising history, this user-friendly guide covers how to share the news, structure a ceremony, and throw a great party--and tackles tough questions from “Why get married at all?” to “Which band should we book?” For any couple seeking an unforgettable wedding, this is the indispensable handbook.
