After the “I want” comes the scary “We want”, the joint planning your gay wedding. How do you start so ever to organize your own wedding? Each Pair has its own desires and dreams, but I tell my gay or lesbian customers that the most Important thing, you should start with your guest list is. Take some time to discuss this together, and lists the people you want to invite to your big day, when your gay exchanged wedding rings.

In this Phase, it is also good to, whether you want a small and intimate wedding or a large event with hundreds of guests.

The number of guests you want to invite, is the key for the second step: the choice of the ideal Location. The number of guests planning impact on all other aspects of your wedding, therefore, you should plan well! From Catering and bar service to the printed invitations and Giveaways – everything depends on the number of guests you want to invite.

A good, accurate list, and an agreed minimum number of guests can save you money, too.

When reeling in, for example, a cost estimate of your chosen venue and the Catering Agency, you’ll quickly find out that the price per Person is lower, the more guests you have. And why? Because not only is the food and the Service, but also the logistics and cost of the number of guests depend on who you want to invite. I advise you to be careful and to reduce your minimum number of guests to 10 %, just in case you get in last-Minute Cancellations, you still have to pay.

After the guest list and the Location is fixed, comes the real challenge of the wedding planning: How you can make the Party individually and to make it a special experience for you and your guests?

The right Balance between the flavours to find your choice and preferences of the two grooms, it can be a challenge, and compromise is the key here.

Since gay marriage is not recognised, and no religious regulations, you have the freedom to create any type of event. Nevertheless, it is important to respect a potentially religious guests could take part in your wedding. The “Save the Date” and the design of the invitations to the menu, the service concept (Buffet or Sit-Down Dinner), the decoration or the Live performances, listen to your heart and your mind, to draw an imaginary picture of the wedding that you imagine.

If you shy a great idea to do, you’re not sure of how you want to implement, you don’t, talk about it and to seek answers or help from professionals.

Like migratory birds, the LGBTQ Community is known to travel a lot and move, what people from different countries and continents together. In the last few years, I had the honor to work with many mixed same-sex couples: an Israeli with a Scottish, a canadian with a Parisian-and, of course, couples who live far away from their home countries.

If you invite guests to celebrate this special day in a place that is far away from your home, you should consider whether you no more than just a great wedding ceremony organizing. Plan smaller events or activities in order to meet the different travel plans to meet. The guests are likely likely to to celebrate with you, so offer them some of the possibilities.
