I've spent a lot of time speaking to people in the wedding industry about same-sex weddings, and I've noticed that a lot of people have misconceptions about what really goes on at these fabulous celebrations.
By and large, same-sex couples are quite nontraditional in their wedding planning. Of course, this should not surprise anyone. The LGBT community does not come from a tradition of marriage, which allows us to write our own rules for celebrations.
Same-sex marriage is here to stay, so I sat down with Ms. Chris Weber, who has 25 years of experience as a wedding planner, to talk about the biggest mistakes that people make in planning their weddings.
When my fiancée and I decided to tie the knot, we promised that we wouldn't stress about planning our special day. We were smart. We wouldn't succumb to the dumb world of creating wars for months on end around an ephemeral four-hour affair. Then it happened.
