Survey from TheKnot.com and The Advocate Showcases New and Old Wedding Traditions for Same-Sex Couples
NEW YORK, June 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To commemorate Pride Month, the striking down of same-sex marriage bans in Utah and Indiana, and the anniversary of the overturn of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), TheKnot.com, the number-one online wedding planning destination, and The Advocate, the world's leading gay news source, announced the results of their second annual same-sex wedding survey. This study looks at many aspects of weddings, from the engagement ring to the honeymoon, comparing the traditions that same-sex couples are following in their wedding ceremonies with those of their straight counterparts.
"Here at The Knot, we've been proud supporters of marriage equality from day one," said Rebecca Dolgin, The Knot editor in chief. "In researching for Gay Weddings from The Knot, a special digital magazine we just released to celebrate equal love for all, we wanted to look further into the traditions the LGBT community is following, and making their own."
"One year after the Supreme Court's landmark rulings on marriage, this survey illustrates their enormous impact playing out in the lives of couples who want to marry. As you might expect, same-sex couples are much the same as everyone else. We share a passion for the great traditions in wedding celebrations-from exchanging rings to marrying in a suit or tuxedo-but we also like to add our own unique twist on the celebrations," said Joe Landry, the executive vice president, publishing, for Here Media.
