Who doesn’t love weddings? Folks in love, dance floors, dressing up, delicious food, open bars, etc. However, if you’ve ever planned a wedding, or are currently planning one, you know how much work it truly is. And for lesbian and gay couples, there’s the added obstacle of having to “come out” to your wedding vendors, who more often than not typically associate weddings and straightness .
Enter in the Say I Do! LGBT Wedding & Lifestyle Expo, which was founded “to give LGBT couples a forum to meet LGBT-friendly vendors who are ready, willing, and able to make wedding dreams come true.” For four hours at the Radisson Plaza Warwick Hotel on Sunday, October 28, you’ll be able to meet with more than 20 vendors, including photographers, caterers, and more.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, the Expo is a great place to connect with local LGBT resources who can assist with everything from financial information to legal preparation.
Plus there’s festivities, including games, free prizes, etc.
“At the Say I Do! LGBT Wedding & Lifestyle Expo, we go beyond the business aspect because ‘Say I Do!’ is more than just a phrase and expo, it’s a symbol of acceptance and a celebration of equal love and life,” says Glenda Britt, Director of the Philadelphia Region at Pinkdot Concepts, who organize the Expo.
