10 Creative Ways to Show your Pride on Your Wedding Day

10 Creative Ways to Show your Pride on Your Wedding Day

 

Since marriage equality became the law of the land in 2015, more LGBTQ couples have been getting married than ever, and we are doing it in our way and our style. Because the traditional wedding industry can be heteronormative and generally exclusive of LGBTQ couples, we have had to find creative ways to show our Pride and our authentic selves during our wedding ceremonies and celebrations. At Dash of Pride, our whole mission is to create fun and safe shopping experiences for LGBTQ wedding decor and accessories so that you can celebrate your day with Pride and feel inspired and excited about the ways you’re incorporating your LGBTQ identity into your day. We’ve rounded up 10 fun ways to show your Pride on your day, so that your wedding can be a true reflection of who you are and the community you’re a part of. We can’t wait to see how you add a dash of Pride to your special day!

 

1. Wear a LGBTQ wedding tee shirt -- while you’re planning your wedding, touring venues, picking out linens, or even on your wedding day while you are getting ready!
