You’ve set a date, got your photographer (us ha!), and now you are realllly ready to get down to the nitty gritty! We’re taking the guessing game out of trying to figure out if a vendor is LGBTQ+ friendly! So, we have composed the official LGBTQ+ Friendly Elopement Vendor Guide. This list is full of vendors excited to work with you and your partner! Some are even queer owned (we have placed them at the top of the lists). We hope that you find this list helpful as you start digging into the specifics of your big day! And as always, we would LOVE to help you plan your big day, so don’t hesitate to reach out!
In addition we have created a SUPER safe space for couples who are planning their elopements over on Facebook! (Vendors can join too) You can ask questions, get advice, and so much more! Click HERE to join the group!
These planners are sure to make your day the best! Yes, even though you have an elopement, sometimes it’s nice to sit back and let someone else do all the work (if ya know what i mean ;).
