December 6, 2021

There are many wedding inspiration posts that are made of cookie-cutter ideas, but there aren’t many that are very inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community and of all relationships. The demand for diverse and inclusive weddings has continued to grow. Which is why we have gathered six fun different LGBTQ+ wedding inspiration ideas that you can incorporate into your wedding to show your pride! Love is love and we are here to support you and your wedding!

1. Wear Purple Sneakers

The rainbow is specifically associated with the LGBTQ+ community, but let’s not forget about the color purple which is a classic symbol of pride and solidarity. Showing off your pride by wearing purple sneakers definitely makes a statement and will be loved by your guests at your wedding. You can also opt to incorporate different shades of purple throughout your wedding.

2. Slice Into a Rainbow Cake

The rainbow flag is one of the most popular ways to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, with six colors (red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple).  If you are planning on having a textured buttercream or traditional fondant cake at your wedding, use each layer to display a different color of the flag. Incorporating these colors into your cake will definitely add a prideful twist to your wedding cake!

3. Send Guests Home With Rainbow Favors

The goal is to leave your guests with something fun and memorable, which is why rainbow favors are perfect! Creating rainbow candy favors are great and will be loved by those with a sweet tooth all while showing your support for the LGBTQ+ community. You can also leave your guests with rainbow shot glasses that have been personalized with you and your partners names to remember your wedding by.

4. A Colorful Bouquet or Boutonniere

Most wedding bouquets already consist of an array of beautiful florals in different shades, but if you’re looking to show off your pride then opt for florals that are shades of red, yellow, blue, green, orange, or purple to represent the LGBTQ rainbow flag. Don’t feel forced to use every color, you can choose three colors that match well with your wedding theme. Since boutonnieres are smaller than bouquets, you may want to narrow it down to two shades of the rainbow.

5. Include Pronoun Pins for Your Guests to Wear

Including pronoun pins at your wedding is a great way to involve your guests and allow them to show off their pride and support for you, your partner, and the LGBTQ+ community! These pins can be passed out as people are entering the ceremony or make for the perfect wedding favors.

6. Show Off a Pride Flag in Your Wedding Photos

Incorporating a rainbow flag will make a bold statement and show off your pride. A rainbow flag can also add a pop of color into your wedding photos. If you’re looking to be bold and proud at your wedding be sure to have a rainbow flag on hand to incorporate into photos.
