June is celebrated in most areas of the U.S. as Pride Month in recognition of the Stonewall Riots in June 1969 and other historical events and milestones. It includes celebrations, marches, rallies, commemorations, and organized messages of pride, protest, and solidarity. While we love to celebrate LGBTQ+ weddings all year round, we especially like to give some special attention to Pride-themed weddings during the month of June.
If you’re planning a wedding celebration that includes some rainbow imagery (to make it gay as hell!), that’s awesome! And totally not required, of course. But if you’re in a rainbow state of mind, there are so many options for you to rock your pride flag, literally, on your wedding day. Also, we’re not into “rainbow washing” — where businesses make money from the LGBTQ community, but don’t give back… so we made a point to include queer-owned businesses and companies that donate a portion of their proceeds of Pride gear to charities.
