Beautiful LGBTQIA+ Wedding Ideas

Same-Sex Wedding IdeasChapel of the Flowers loves seeing couples celebrate their way in a way that feels special to them. For LGBTQIA+ couples, this could mean adapting existing wedding traditions or creating their own. We believe that every couple should make their own traditions that speak to them. We spoke to Blue Nile, the world’s leading online retailer of diamond engagement rings, to share our best ideas for beautiful LGBTQIA+ weddings.

LGBTQIA+ Wedding Ideas

At Chapel of the Flowers, we have seen many wedding traditions getting a modern LGBTQ+ twist. Here are a few of our favorites:

Man's Diamond Engagement and Wedding Rings | LGBTQ Wedding Ideas | Same-Sex Wedding IdeasDiamond solitaire rings aren’t just for the ladies. We have seen many guys showing off their stunning diamond engagement rings during their ceremony.

Women's Tuxedo | LGBTQ Wedding Ideas | Same-Sex Wedding IdeasWear what you love! If you envision yourself in a wedding dress, wear a wedding dress; if you prefer a tuxedo, sport a dapper tuxedo. Can’t decide? We have seen tuxedos with veil-inspired capes and trains.

Groom's Bouquet | LGBTQ Wedding Ideas | Same-Sex Wedding IdeasDo you identify as a male and want a bouquet? Have a bouquet and make it fabulous. Who says that bouquets are just for women.

Mix Gender Wedding PartyHave a “Best Maid” or a “Man of Honor”— mixed-gender wedding parties have been a big wedding trend in the past decade. The LGBTQ+ community started this wedding trend, and now hetero couples are using this trend.

A traditional processional during a ceremony is when everyone turns around and watches the bride walk down the aisle. Today, same-sex and hetero couples are doing whatever feels best. Whether walking down together hand-in-hand or having each person walk down the aisle, do what makes sense to you.


Wedding Details & Personal Touches

Gay Wedding Ideas | LGBTQ Wedding Ideas | Same-Sex Wedding IdeasCouples should first create a list to determine their “needs” and “wants” for their special day. “Needs” are non-negotiable items, and “wants” are things that would be nice to have. Every couple makes sacrifices while planning their wedding. Whether it is a day they are getting married or wedding décor options, making a list will help couples decide what is realistic for their budget.

Once you have this list, it will be easier to customize those personal touches that show off their personality and love for each other.

We have so many wonderful LGBTQ+ couples that get married at our Chapel. We love seeing how each couple brings their own style and personality to their wedding day!
