NYC: Get ready, get set… get married!
September 27, 2011
As thousands of same-sex couples in New York are planning their weddings following the passage of the marriage bill this summer, Freedom to Marry is proud to sponsor "Get Ready, Get Set... Get Married!" on September 30th at 6:30 the NYC LGBT Center. This event will give the do's and don'ts of wedding planning and provide hints and tips for engaged same-sex couples in New York City. Here's a description from the event organizers:
"Center Speakers is hosting a special event for LGBT couples who are planning to get married, or at least thinking about tying the knot. The best queer\ally professional wedding planners in the business discuss the do’s and don’ts of planning your own wedding.
Discuss how to avoid horrifying color combinations (neon green and orange are not wedding colors), how to find the perfect dress for your bridesmaids or groomsmen (chiffon is a dirty word), when to find your caterer (It won’t cost a million dollars!) and keeping the soon to be in-laws in line and happy. Discover the real secrets to a traditional (modestly priced) yet fabulous queer wedding!"
The event will feature a panel of wedding planning experts who will be there to answer any questions soon-to-be-married couples may have! You can purchase tickets for only $10 by clicking here.
