An Inclusive Wedding Planning Website

If you're planning your gay wedding, it won't take long to realize that there are currently two wedding worlds on the internet - the straight wedding world (such as TheKnot.com and Brides.com) and the gay wedding world (such as GayWeddings.com, SoYoureEnGAYged.com).  And for now, there's nothing wrong with that.  Gay and lesbian couples should be able to trust their vendors and in many cases, that means visiting a gay wedding vendor directory.

For the past month and a half, I've been working with Kate Parker to make her new website, www.MyKateParkerWedding.com inclusive of all couples.  I've made some changes to their language and photos so that gay and straight couples will feel comfortable.  I've written some expert advice articles for the site so that engaged gay and lesbian couples who find themselves there will realize that they are welcome and that there is content just for them.  And you'll even see some real gay weddings up on the site.

This is all very significant for a number of reasons:

  • The site itself is very cool, intuitively and smartly designed, very useful for couples.  It's a great resource for any couple that I'm proud to be associated with.
  • MyKateParkerWedding.com is the first online wedding resource to seamlessly integrate both the straight and the gay wedding worlds.  The key word is integration (which requires a certain degree of fearlessness).
  • Some vendors listed on MyKateParkerWedding.com have been trained by me on how to work with gay couples and others are coming to my upcoming workshop.
Check out the site - I think you'll really enjoy how intuitive it is to use and how useful its search features are.

In an ideal world, there won't need to be gay wedding websites and straight wedding websites, but we're just not there yet.  MyKateParkerWedding.com is the first site of its kind to even come close and I'm really proud of what they're doing.
