Brittny Drye started Love Inc Magazine
in October 2013 as
the first equality-minded wedding publication. And although the
wedding industry has come a long way, we still have so much further
to go to make sure that LGBTQ couples aren't discriminated
against. Part of that is looking into our content - are we
using bride- and groom-specific verbiage on our websites,
contracts, and proposals? And even in our own language?
Sha'Quitta Brown just got married to her wife L'Erin in July
2018. And for them, they didn’t feel welcome by all wedding
vendors. Some were downright bigoted, and some just didn’t have the
collateral on their website to make Sha’Quitta and L’Erin
comfortable in contacting them. For those who are outwardly
intolerant, Sha’Quitta doesn’t have any time for them. But for
those who WANT to be inclusive and who WANT more LGBT weddings,
Sha’Quitta has some great advice.
