Getting married is a big step for any relationship, but when it comes to finding the perfect location for your wedding venue, it can be challenging. For same-sex couples, finding a gay-friendly wedding venue that both you, and your families love—especially if you’re dreaming of a tropical wedding venue, can make the search even harder.
We believe the perfect LGBT or gay-friendly wedding venues must not only be gorgeous locations but also offer you and your loved ones intimacy and privacy on your special day. Finding the perfect location makes it easy for you to relax and enjoy the lasting memories you’ll make as you start your new life together. Here are some of our tips to help you find the gay wedding venue of your dreams.

1. Make a List of Priorities
Before you can start looking for a venue, you need to know what you’re looking for. Every couple has preferences about their wedding day, from how many people they want to invite to the type of food that will be served. Sit down with your partner and make a list of your top priorities. You probably won’t be able to find everything you’re wanting all in one venue, but talking through your wishlist will help narrow down options.
2. Pull Out the Map
Your wedding is one of the most important moments in life. Make the memories even more special by planning a destination wedding in an incredible place. You’ll love having your closest friends and family with you in an exotic, picture-perfect setting as you make this life-long commitment. Adventure Weddings has intimate, tropical beach wedding venues in Mexico that are ideal for same-sex couples planning a gay wedding.
3. Choose an Intimate Setting
The best weddings are intimate occasions that put all the focus on the couple. Make sure you get that exclusive feel on your special day by choosing a venue that prioritizes privacy. Choose an atmosphere that is quiet and set apart from the crowds, so you and your guests won’t have any distractions during this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
4. Get a Wedding Planner
Wedding planners can do wonders to make all of your wishes come true on the day you walk down the aisle. If you decide to hire a wedding planner, it’s key to hire one who is experienced at planning same-sex weddings and understands how to help you create an unforgettable wedding experience—while ensuring you feel comfortable every step of the way.
When you book a wedding with Adventure Weddings, you’ll get access to experienced wedding planners who can help you arrange all of the details of your big day. Your wedding planner can act as a sounding board for your ideas and give expert advice on gay weddings. They’ll understand the nuances of this unforgettable moment, helping you with everything from decorations and music to food and seating arrangements.
