    I don't really have too much reference on what is acceptable or not for a lesbian ceremony, but I do think color could be fun! Just a few examples would be doing different color tables for the reception or cocktail hour, having multi color signature drinks representing the happy couple, you could make rainbow shaped cookies and have them sitting at each place setting for guest favors, I've seen multi layered rainbow wedding cakes (that people are surprised about once cut open), you could name each table a color of the rainbow (instead of numbering them) and then on the other side have a little note specifying what that significant color means in the LGBT community... As you can see I love details :-)

  • We, too, are doing a "rainbow theme" for our same-sex wedding.  We chose rainbow for the various meanings it holds in our lives (yes, LGBT, but also respresenting coming through the storms in our lives, hope, and the Biblical promise)  Our main colors are white and silver.  The main rainbow comes in with our WP attire (those closest too us being the rainbow in our lives).  Other ways we are incorporating rainbow:  WP enters to "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and we enter with "Rainbow Connection", our escort cards are really mini-books that I am making that have rainbow quotes that again represent the various meanings of rainbow on each page;  tables are being names similarly (ie:  blessings, diversity, true colors, perseverance, wishes, covenant, etc);  the cake is traditional with blue birds and a rainbow from my Naoh Ark's collection; centerpieces include crystal vases each with a different color gerbera daisy ...  still working on other pieces, but again the rainbow is represented in subtle but meaningful touches.

    thank you for the ideas im so excited to continue planning. i just want to make sure it doesnt look like a pride left over clearance sale
  • That's so awesome congrats!  I think for you I would keep the wedding dress white, maybe a jewel rainbow necklace like this: 


    I think it would be an adorable idea to have each of the bridesmaids/groomsman in a different color red orange yellow etc...


    You could have a colorful bouquet like in the picture above but not too bright, also I think this is a great idea for the cake, traditional white then rainbow layers inside!


    Also here is a rainbow wedding garter:
