Make marriage equality a part of your wedding or commitment ceremony

With spring wedding season upon us and an increase in gay wedding bells since the California Supreme Court’s decision, the Pride Agenda has some suggestions for both straight and same-sex couples looking to incorporate the fight for marriage equality into their ceremonies. Whether for straight allies saddened by their gay friends’ inability to get married or partners planning a commitment ceremony, there are many easy ways to raise awareness and support for equality and justice on your special day.

Our Wedding Toolkit has several ideas for how couples can stand up for justice and love for all, including using pro-marriage equality language in their invitations and announcements, suggesting donations to LGBT organizations be made in their name as gifts or making a donation as a wedding favor, and including a message about marriage equality in their wedding toast.

Check out the Toolkit to find out more about the ways that you and your partner can make your wedding or ceremony more meaningful by bringing New York closer to the day when there will be marriage equality for all loving, committed couples in the state.
