We recently announced WeddingWire now powers the local LGBT-friendly vendor directory on GayWeddings.com. This partnership makes it the most comprehensive directory of same-sex friendly vendors available. Those listed on WeddingWire have the option to choose if they would or would not like to be listed on the GayWeddings.com site by selecting if they provide services for “LGBT Weddings / Cermonies” from their WeddingWire Storefront.
GayWeddings.com was founded by Gretchen Hamm in 1999. While planning a wedding for daughter Kathryn in 1999, she was frustrated by the lack of resources available to same-sex couples and thus founded TwoBrides.com and TwoGrooms.com – the first such online boutiques to cater to the LGBT community – that same year. In 2005, the mother-daughter team acquired GayWeddings.com, solidifying its position as the largest resource of its kind at the forefront of the burgeoning same-sex wedding industry. Based in Dallas, Texas and Arlington, Virginia, GayWeddings.com serves the LGBT community with its community forum, national gay-friendly vendor directory, wedding planning seminars, consultation services, free planning articles and “Wed Pages,” personalized customer service and its online boutique, which features hard-to-find gay wedding items including certificates, invitations, cake tops, albums, guest books, personalized accessories and more. Through advocacy, relationship building and education, GayWeddings.com continues to affect change in the wedding marketplace.
