Seeing gay marriage get legalized may have been one of the most beautiful historic events we have ever seen. It's an event that proved that love is universal, and that helped bring gay rights to the forefront.
These days, it's okay to be gay and still try to get married. It's a great thing! Over recent years, thousands of couples who have waited their entire lives finally got to say "I do."
Though most states have seen gay marriage legalized for years, the truth is that the wedding industry still has a lot of catching up to do. If your friend is in a same-sex couple and is ready to get married, it's time to start shopping.
Planning a same-sex wedding still remains pretty tough due to all the discrimination planners can face. Thankfully, finding wedding gifts for same-sex couples is a cinch these days. Here are some of the cutest offerings we've found.
