Deciding how you and your partner walk down the aisle is an important aspect of your wedding. Here are some ideas to change things up!
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The way a couple walks in traditional weddings is almost always the same. They begin with the groom waiting patiently at the altar for his bride while she walks down the aisle. However, what happens when your wedding involves a same sex couple? Should you both walk together? Do you both stay at the altar? Do you meet up half way down the aisle?
The answer is simple: Do whatever you want to do! If you both want to walk together, go for it! If you want to have one person walk down the aisle, that works too! Ultimately, do whatever you think will work best for your wedding! Some other ways of walking down the aisle include using two aisles, meeting halfway, and the communal entrance.
If the venue allows, the two-aisle entrance is perfect to give both you and your spouse the spotlight at the same time! This would involve you and your partner walking simultaneously down two separate aisles then meeting at the altar. Also, if using this method, be sure to have enough photographers to capture images on both sides!
The communal entrance is another creative way of starting your ceremony. With this method, there is no need to worry about who starts the ceremony or who walks down the aisle. Before the ceremony, all guests and wedding party members will be mingling. Whenever you and your partner are ready, just make your way up to the altar and get the ceremony started!
Finally, its most important to remember that these decisions are ultimately yours. This is a choice for you to make with your partner for your wedding day! You should decide which method is best for you and your partner on your big day. Work together to pick the style that represents your relationship best.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Don’t be held back by the uncertainty of who to Choose for Your Wedding Party. Choosing your party for your LGBTQ+ wedding is easier than you may think!
[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]When considering the Bridal and Grooms party, how will you decide who to include? Who cares, just make sure they are there to support you and be there for you! Ask whoever, as long as you believe they are a true fit. You can have a man of honor, a best woman, or whatever variation you desire. This doesn’t matter! All that matters is that you are happy with your party on your big day. It all comes down to you and your personal preference.
When organizing your wedding party, don’t feel held back by ‘traditional’ wedding guidelines. For weddings today, there are not any specific standards or rules that must be followed. Just remember, when considering your invitees, don’t just ask someone because they asked you to be in their party. Be honest and understanding when choosing your party and leaving others out. This way, you can also avoid hurting anybody’s feelings.
The first step is to consider the size of your wedding. Larger weddings could usually mean a larger party, and the opposite for smaller weddings. With that in mind, you can still have as many or as few bridesmaids or groomsman as you wish. There is not a limit on who you can include. Remember, however, the quality of your party is more important than the size. Quality over quantity!
It is also crucial to remember to include the people who mean the most to your relationship. These are the people who supported you through the good, the bad, and everything in between. Your brothers, sisters and closest friends are a great place to start.
Finally, the most important aspect of your party is to do what makes you happy! Man-of-honor, best woman, or whoever you may want to include; It all comes down to what’s best for you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
