The national resource Rainbow Wedding Network will return to Delaware with an LGBT Wedding Expo from noon to 3 p.m., Sunday, March 2, at the Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center, 101 N. Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. Rainbow Wedding Network has produced more than 100 LGBT wedding expos in 25 states since 2003.
A diversity of gay-friendly businesses will participate including reception venues, event coordinators, cake decorators, musical entertainment, florists, photographers, formal wear suppliers, travel planners and realtors. Couples and advocates from surrounding areas are invited to attend. Highlights will include LGBT-specific planning tips, speakers regarding the issues surrounding marriage and family equality, free samples, attendee swag bags, and raffle giveaways. The expo is free for couples to attend. All budget levels are welcome.
"It is truly a victory for our minority that same-gender commitments are now being recognized in so many states," said Rainbow Wedding Network cofounder Cindy Sproul. "It is a time to celebrate, for all citizens to actively and enthusiastically join together and envision the next steps for the LGBT community in the Delaware area as well as throughout the country. The more cohesive our community becomes, the sooner we’ll achieve lasting equality."
Rainbow Wedding Network's Same Love, Same Rights Gay & Lesbian Wedding Expo is a timely resource for same-sex couples as well as singles, advocates and allies who support equal rights in marriage.
