This is a community for people who are planning, are interested in, or have participated in glbtq, same sex, poly, transgender (or other) type of non-mainstream weddings. You do NOT have to be glbtq- "FRIENDLIES" and "FAMILY" are most welcome... it doesnt matter what your preference/orientation/gender is- just that you UNDERSTAND the basic idea is about samesex/poly weddings....

The focus of this community is on the ceremony/reception/celebration itself, and not on the politics of whether or not same sex weddings should be legal. We should be able to talk and plan and share despite what some state law or others might say. It should be understood that our relationships are just as important and cherished as anyone else's.

Our weddings should be no less magnificent, special or unique just because they aren't mainstream. We should be just as excited, fluttery and nervous as any bride or groom. We should have a place to come and gush, brag and share with other brides/grooms to be.

To quote cyn hopefully someday soon same-sex weddings will be just like all weddings - a big deal, but not A Big Deal. :) I couldn't agree more.

I feel that this community should be a place for people of ANY gender/sexuality/orientation/lifestyle/preference/identity/persuasion to come and celebrate and share in the planning of weddings, not to debate political issues.
There are plenty of places to talk about glbtq rights and such, but I wanted a place where future glbtq brides and grooms could come and just freely chat about their ceremonies or and unions.

There are hundreds upon hundreds of wedding communities, but few for glbtq people, very few. Even the websites that talk of same sex unions still tend to inadvertantly exclude poly unions. To me, it seems that the glbtq issue overshadows the actual wedding, and someone spends more time trying to get the details of their sexuality/orientation/preferences out of the way so that they can finally get down to discussing the wedding stuff.... And I personally would like to talk freely without the whole "pronoun game" or having to preface everything with "so, my girlfriend and i (and i am woman too)." This way, gender roles or stereotypes are no longer the base of the situation, and we can just get to the fluffy funstuff...
