Now that California has joined Massachusetts in legalizing gay marriage (whoo hoo!)—and New York recognizes legal marriages from other states and countries—couples are lining up to take their turn as Bridezilla! If there's one thing we've learned from straight couples, it's that planning a wedding is not always an easy task. To spread the love, and help you to plan your queer nuptials, Out and The Advocate—forever in marital bliss—have teamed up to create State of the Unions: A Guide to Everything Marriage.
Just because we're gay, it doesn't mean that we have to have the same old boring wedding that most heterosexuals plan. So venture on over to State of the Unions for tips for planning your perfect wedding day from finding the perfect his and his tuxedos, choosing a fabulous playlist of gay love anthems (Madonna! Cyndi Lauper! Culture Club!) and navigating California's laws so you can seal the deal.
