14 Fabulous Same-Sex Wedding Ideas

Inspiration, Planning & Advice

Your wedding day is your opportunity to show your style and celebrate your relationship. For many LGBTQ+ couples, this is a fabulous chance to incorporate some same-sex signs, accessories and rainbows into the festivities. Not all of these ideas will be for everybody, but you’re bound to find something you love in this roundup of same-sex wedding ideas. Whether you’re after a full-on rainbow-themed wedding, a subtle nod, or some clever and personal touches, you’ll love this list.


Go bold with your signs

We’re starting our list of same-sex wedding ideas with clever signs. Pop signs around your venue, have your flower girl walk down the aisle with one, or have your ‘groom and groom’ or ‘bride and bride’ signs on your chairs.
