Though weddings are incredibly fun and exciting, they can also be stressful. For same-sex marriages, you may be looking for additional ways to make the day special.
The good news is that there are many creative and customizable ways to make your wedding day perfect. To help you brainstorm, here are five awesome same-sex wedding ideas that you and your significant other will love!
1. Rainbow-Themed Cake
One of the most creative LGBT wedding ideas is to have a rainbow-themed birthday cake. You can still have a traditional white exterior, with a spectrum of color on the interior. The rainbow colors become visible once the cake is cut.
It can be a fun surprise for the guests and make for a nice wedding photo during the cake cutting ceremony.
2. Vibrant Colored Smoke Bombs
If you want wedding pictures, unlike anything else, try incorporating colorful smoke bombs. It may seem silly, but when properly used, your pictures become one of a kind. It’s a perfect and simple touch that makes all the difference.
It’s also a creative way to get your photos to stand-out and symbolize your gay pride.
3. Incorporate Supreme Court Lines on Decor
Consider incorporating the Supreme Court ruling for same-sex marriage into the decor of your ceremony. It’s a powerful way to show your love and the importance of the ruling for your marriage.
Depending on your style, you can incorporate it into the ceremony readings, programs, or signage.
4. Colorful Cufflinks
If you’re planning a gay wedding for two men, consider wearing colorful cufflinks during your ceremony. This is a perfect same-sex wedding idea for unassuming couples looking for a light touch.
Rainbow cufflinks are a subtle way to show your gay pride while still keeping it classy. Plus, cufflinks are affordable and hassle-free, making it a great option if you’re looking for last-minute ideas.
5. Bright and Bold Wedding Flowers
Flowers are an important part of every wedding, so why not make yours stand-out? Buying vibrant, colorful flowers can be a beautiful way to symbolize your union as a same-sex couple.
Depending on your preferences, there are several ways you can this in either ceremony or the reception. If you’re two men, you can have the flower girls hold rainbow-colored flowers as they walk down the aisle. If you’re two women, then one of the women can walk down the aisle with them.
You can have the bridesmaids hold them or incorporate them into the tables at the reception. Whichever way you do it, they will look beautiful!
