The wedding industry has broadened its horizons to embrace marriage equality—no surprise, as same-sex nuptials are adding more than $2 billion to the already lucrative field.
Wedding magazines are becoming more inclusive, too: This year The Knot chose WNBA star Elena Delle Donne and her fiancé as its first lesbian Dream Wedding winners.
Several magazines are catering directly to same-sex couples, offerings advice, resources, and Pinterest-worthy visuals for queer couples planning their big day. Below, browse four fab LGBT-specific wedding magazines.
The brainchild of Aussie couple Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell, Dancing with Her offers stylish photos, real wedding stories, and tips on writing your own vows, as well as a directory of LGBT-friendly wedding vendors. With Australia primed to pass marriage equality by the end of the year, this online publication has just launched its first print edition.
This digital magazine spotlights eye-catching ceremonies, glamorous honeymoon destinations and dapper duds for male couples looking to tie the knot. Co-founder Richard Dusseau was inspired to launch Men’s Vows as he planned his own 2000 nuptials and found a distinct lack of resources for gay grooms.

Founded by couple Kirsten and Maria Palladino in 2009, Equally Wed offers daily content, not just about wedding trends, advice, and real-life wedding stories, but about marriage equality news around the world. (Kirsten’s book, Equally Wed: The Ultimate Guide to Planning Your LGBTQ+ Wedding, makes a great engagement gift, too.)
