Get a leg up on your wedding plans this year with the help of, It’s About Time Events and GayWeddings.com, two pioneering companies specializing in gay weddings.
Wedding experts Bernadette Smith and Kathryn Hamm have designed an engaging and informative seminar designed to help couples tackle tough decisions about beginning the wedding planning process.
This groundbreaking seminar series, Gay Weddings 101, got its start in front of a full house at the College Club of Boston in January 2006, and was featured in a recent issue of Boston Spirit Magazine. Six couples also enjoyed a rousing and engaging first class evening at Sette Bello in Arlington, VA as couples bantered about wedding themes, colors and finding logistical support on the day of the wedding.
Upcoming seminars have just been announced for Philadelphia (July 13) through the William Way Community Center and Chicago (July 22) at the NuptEquality Fashion and Vendor Showcase. Topics to be covered will include getting started, budget, ceremony ideas, family participation, a Q&A, and all participants receive a Gay Weddings 101 planning binder. Each ninety-minute session* is open to all same sex couples who pre-register and are considering marriage or a commitment ceremony. Space is limited in each seminar so it is important to register early!

ABOUT GAY WEDDINGS 101
Boston Spirit Magazine says:
Fortunately, there’s help, most notably in the form of It’s About Time, Boston’s first gay wedding planning firm, and GayWeddings.com, the internet’s first community wedding web site for the GLBT community…To help keep the wedding-planning process from driving you to contemplate forgetting the whole affair, both companies offer assistance with everything from finding gay wedding officiates and choosing the wording for your invititions to working with GLBT-friendly caterers.
It was reassuring to hear that other couples were having the same issues with family communications, especially budgets. Wish my mom could have been here as well!
