How to Show Your Pride: 5 LGBTQ Pride Elopement Ideas
Posted On | January 28, 2023
We LOVE when couples bring some personality into their wedding day – including LGBTQ pride elopement ideas. Below are five of our favorite ways to celebrate and infuse your pride into your elopement!
1) Incorporate a reading into your ceremony.
During your ceremony, ask your officiant, a loved one, or even your partner to share a reading. Some great places to start when looking for what to incorporate include passages from bell hooks’ “All About Love,” or Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion in Hodges v. Obergefell.
2) Wave your pride flag
Whether you’re wanting to bring an actual flag or plan to incorporate one into your wedding details, there is no better day to have it proudly displayed than your wedding – the ultimate proof that love wins!
3) Hire LGBTQ+ vendors
When you’re searching for vendors, consider hiring businesses owned by someone in the queer community. Check out our list of inclusive Colorado LGBTQ+ owned, employed, or affirming wedding vendors!
4) Consider non-traditional wedding attire that you feel confident in
Gone are the days of strict dress codes around what is considered “proper” wedding attire. From bridal jumpsuits and custom hats to bespoke gender-neutral suits, you have lots of options when it comes to clothing that you’ll feel confident and comfortable in all day!
5) Infuse pride colors into your wedding day
We’ve seen so many creative ways that couples have incorporated the colors of the pride flag into their wedding. Consider socks, lapel pins, flowers, or even a rainbow cake!
