Wedding Practices That Make Your Wedding More Inclusive
Some people believe that weddings are a time to celebrate love in all its forms. And while this is true, it cannot be easy when the guest list doesn’t reflect that sentiment. However, it’s easy to make your wedding more inclusive by including parents of children with special needs or having an interpreter on hand for deaf guests. Here are ways to help you craft an inclusive wedding experience.
Ways to be inclusive at your wedding
Planning a wedding can be stressful, but there are many ways to make it more inclusive. One way is by making sure that your guests have access to vegan food options. Another idea is to ask people with disabilities if they need any special accommodations to enjoy the event. You could also include gender-neutral bathrooms or find an officiant who will perform same-sex weddings. Again, there are many ways you can make your wedding more inclusive!
Did you know that not all weddings are the same? There are different types of weddings for different people. Some brides want to make their wedding more inclusive to include everyone on their big day. So how do you go about making your wedding more inclusive? Here are some tips!
- Ask your venue if they have any gender-neutral bathrooms or offer a unique bathroom for transitioning individuals who feel uncomfortable using the regular ones
- Consider having an open bar at your reception and/or cocktail hour so guests can drink what makes them feel comfortable without feeling judged
- Offer food options for various dietary restrictions, including gluten-free, vegan, kosher, etc., as well as nonalcoholic beverages like coffee and tea.
