Gay Weddings

Hi! New Bride-to-be, here.

Hello all! My girlfriend and I are getting married next October. We live in Atlanta, so the plan is to go up to MA and have a legal wedding, and then have a ceremony with our family and friends when we get back home. Has anyone else done this?Also, would it be more difficult to bring my two sons (they'll be 3 and 4 by then) with us to MA, or just let them be part of the GA celebration?

    We are going to Boston to get married on our anniversary (tues) then the following sat we will be having another ceremony and reception in forida where we live since most of our friends and family wouldn't be able to go to Boston. I think the traveling might be hard with your sons but I think having them their would be good.

    Congrats and welcome to the boards.  I am from NJ and we are getting married in October, can't believe how close it is getting.  Fortunately, NJ is one of the states where it is legal.  I have seen on here that others have done what you are planning to do.  Good luck!

    Thank you all so much for the warm welcome! We had originally actually planned to go up to MA this month, because we had tickets to go to the Berkshire Theater festival and were going to stay for about a week. But the money just wasn't there in time, and things happened that took away our trip savings, so we're planning for next year instead. And it'll be better because my boys will be older by then, and hopefully have more fun on the trip.

    Welcome Dreah and congratulations! I live in Atlanta as well, but we are going all the way up to Toronto for the wedding. As you've already read there are several brides doing the same thing you are planning, but I think it would be nice to include your sons if you can!
