At WeddingWire, we are excited to celebrate our second anniversary of our collaboration with the pioneering planning resource for same-sex couples, GayWeddings.com, giving vendors the opportunity to opt in or out of being listed on GayWeddings.com based on their preference.
In 2011, our companies formed a partnership to provide the most comprehensive database of LGBT-friendly wedding professionals. Two years later, we continue to expand the local vendor directory and reviews available on GayWeddings.com, which currently features over 50,000 LGBT-friendly vendors across the country. We look forward to continuing to grow our partnership and provide LGBT-friendly wedding professionals with education and resources to stay informed about serving engaged, same-sex couples.
Recently, we conducted a survey to garner feedback on our partnership from the WeddingWire vendor community.
With over 400 respondents, please find below some top results:
- 86% of respondents already offer their services to all couples or are planning to in the near future
- Respondents served an average of 2.3 same-sex weddings in 2012
- 78% of respondents expect the number of same-sex weddings they serve to increase in 2013
