Gay Wedding Show Coming to Vancouver on November 4th

Sunday, October 14th, 2012

Vancouver Gay Wedding ShowOn November 4, 2012, a committee of local wedding professionals will host Vancouver’s first annual gay and lesbian wedding show. I Do For Us Too is a wedding event where, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, committed and engaged couples can plan their wedding with professionals without discrimination. Guests will enjoy a selection of style scenes designed by coordinators with the help of a florist, stationary printer, and rental company.

These scenes are to give creative inspiration for couples and to showcase the professional’s creative ability. In addition to 50 professional wedding vendors, guest can also enjoy light hor d’ oeuvres, fashion show, Q & A session, Referendum 74 session, lounge area, silent auction of the exhibitor’s services and products, and a live auction of a grand wedding package. The event is sponsored in part by the Hilton Vancouver Washington.

The event was created by an idea from Diane and Rob Figley of Red Raccoon1, LLC, local wedding officiants. Diane and Rob reached out to the professional wedding community for help to produce this historic event and with the help of the event committee I Do For Us Too was created. The committee consists of the following professionals: Red Raccoon1, LLC, Cloud Nine Events & Accessories, Panache Weddings & Events, Mega Music Entertainment, Crave Design, and Elephants Delicatessen.

An inherent problem for many same sex couples is that when planning their wedding or commitment celebration, they are met with discrimination or services are not available to them because of their lifestyle. The committee unanimously agreed that there needed to be a wedding show for the LGBT community where couples can feel comfortable knowing that, without a doubt, they will be greeted by friendly professionals who will be happy to offer their services. Equality SW Washington, a group of marriage equality supporters, will attend the event as exhibitors to help gain support for the passage of Washington State’s Referendum 74. Couples and supporters of marriage equality are encouraged to show their support at this historic event.

The event will begin with registration, and then proceed to he style scenes & exhibiting professionals where guests can ask questions and discover the wide variety of options. The silent auction will being at 1:00 pm and will end at 5:00 pm, after which the live auction for the grand wedding package will begin. Guests who participate in the auctions must register at the entrance.

Throughout the duration of the event, a Q & A session, Referendum Session, and fashion show will be conducted.

If you would like to partake in this new wedding event, online tickets are available for $10 per engaged/committed couple and $8 for singles, supporters, family, and friends at Paypal located on the website. Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event for $15 per engaged/committed couple and $10 for singles, supporters, family, and friends.
