Gay and lesbian weddings are now legal in some parts of Australia, but unfortunately not everyone approves of marriage between two men or two women. It’s not uncommon to find vendors that refuse to cater or provide services to gay or lesbian weddings, which can make planning your wedding a lot more difficult. After all, if you have your heart set on a certain wedding venue, band, or meal, finding out that the vendor doesn’t provide a service to your gay or lesbian wedding can be a blow.
There is good news, though: you can find wonderful vendors that will provide top-notch service for your gay or lesbian wedding.
How can you find these vendors?
Visit Wedding Expos and Bridal Shows
Wedding expos are some of the largest wedding reception venues – related events of the year, and thousands of wedding venues take advantage of these expos to market their services. If you’re planning to get married soon, visit these expos and check out the various vendors. When you find one that you like, ask them if they do provide services to gay or lesbian weddings. You’ll find that business is business in most cases, and many of the vendors at the expo will be happy to provide their services on your big day. Bridal shows are smaller-scale versions of wedding expos.
Always Let Vendors Know Up Front
You’ll find that many vendors will have no problem with providing their photography, cake making, flower-arranging, or catering services for your big day, but it’s essential that you tell them straight out what to expect. There will be vendors that will have an issue with gay and lesbian marriage, and you don’t want to waste your time. Hit them with “We’re getting gay or lesbian married” as soon as you walk into the store. It will help you save time, as they’ll let you know right away if there will be a problem.
Find Gay Businesses
Melbourne is one of the best cities in Australia in which to be gay, and you’ll find that many of the businesses in operation in the city will be run by gays and lesbians. Why not keep your money in the community, and hire gay-owned businesses to provide your wedding services? Hit up Google for the “Melbourne gay business directory”, and find those vendors that match your needs.

Ask Your Friends
Have one of your gay or lesbian couple friends gotten married? Ask them for recommendations, and see who they used for their big day. You’ll find that a recommendation from one of your good homosexual friends can be the easiest way to land the perfect vendor.
