We welcome all couples at A Simple I Do
We take great pride in our open minds and hearts here at A Simple I Do. We want all couples to approach their wedding day with us feeling supported, loved and equal.
Couples in the LGBTQIA community often have to ask "do you serve us" and while I could go on and on about how this sucks the joy out of planning I will focus on the magic we can make happen for all wedding days.
It starts with simply asking what your pronouns are, we want to address each person with the same respect, so we ask. You will find that we have tried really hard to change al of our verbiage to be non gendered, the titles bride and groom are only used after we know you.
Getting to know you, we love talking all things wedding, be in via email or phone or zoom or meeting up for a cup of coffee, yes we welcome the opportunity to discuss in detail what you envision for your wedding day, the bits of your love story you want to highlight and the overall vibe you would enjoy on your wedding day.
Be it a simple signing, elopement or full ceremony we are here to work with all people, and yes that includes our loving LGBTQUIA community.
-We are always in the process of learning and you are welcome to call us out on anything you see that does not make you feel well loved.-
How to host a LGBTQ wedding in Michigan
Well I suppose we could keep it simple and say...host a wedding, boom! married! duh!
Or, I could dive in little on the intricacies of having to inquire with vendors and ask if they allow or perform or participate in LGBTQIA wedding's and how the near fact that a couple would have to ask this question enrages me, but none the less they do and how do I know? because I get emails all the time that ask me this.
I'm trying really hard to make it very clear that:
We will work with you to find the perfect welcoming space to host your ceremony. And we can recommend other vendors to work with.
If you are part of the LGBTQIA community please know you are welcome here and you are loved here.
