Pretty light weight, but mostly sensible basic guide to planning a wedding. Even though it is from 2004 and still on sale at bookstores, recent political changes have made a lot of what is said obsolete. My biggest objection is that even though the examples include long established couples, and the authors seem to acknowledge that many gay couples who decide to marry have already been living together a long time, they still talk a lot about your "new life together" and discuss honeymoon plans as if this will be the couple's first trip together (not even true for straight couples anymore, but certainly not true for gays). The tone of the writing is breezy, pun-laden and jokey. ( )

The best of the same-sex wedding guides, IMO. Useful. ( )

Comprehensive, fresh, and funny, Gay and Lesbian Weddings covers everything you need to know to plan the wedding of your dreams. Unlike other wedding planners, this one tackles the issues your heterosexual friends never had to consider. For instance, do you come out to Aunt Gloria before she receives the invitation and the shock of her life? Which father of the bride pays for a lesbian wedding? Who walks down the aisle first? Is it possible for members of the wedding party to be happy with what you force them to wear? (Okay, this is a universal problem.) Step-by-step and down-to-earth, Gay and Lesbian Weddings includes invaluable advice on

• the changing laws regarding gay marriage in the United States and abroad; the differences among domestic partnerships, civil unions, and marriage
• budget concerns: choosing your ideal wedding size and style
• finding gay-friendly printers, photographers, gift registries, caterers, florists (actually, if you find a gay-hostile florist, we’d love to hear about it)
• ethnic, theme, and destination weddings
• keeping the honey in the honeymoon
• sex—including how to keep the heat after the wedding night, as well as the facts on fidelity (can the two be linked?)

Plus: a handy Wedding Countdown Calendar, website resources, and true stories from same-sex couples who’ve gotten hitched without a hitch

Gay and Lesbian Weddings gives you straight talk (so to speak) with equal parts information, flair, and fabulousness!
