Wedding-Expo-WorkshopGetting married is something many of us, until recently, never thought about. So we might have some questions about just how to put a wedding together. We may not want to do it like everyone else anyhow. Or we may want our weddings to be as traditional as possible.

This weekend, Dallas Voice presents a wedding workshop and expo on Sunday, March 20 at the Renaissance Hotel, 2222 N. Stemmons Freeway. The morning workshop guides same-sex couples through the planning process. The afternoon expo offers a variety of wedding vendors.

The wedding workshop will be lead by experts discussing budgeting, timelines and establishing new traditions: Who proposes? When do invitations go out? Do you hold two bachelor/bachelorette parties, one joint party or is that a tradition that needs to go? For the ceremony, who stands where? We know it’s bad luck for the groom to see the bride before the wedding, but can the groom see the groom?

These and other topics will be addressed by LGBT wedding expert Donnie Brown and Kimberley Vaughan of Brown starred in the Style Network’s series, Whose Wedding is it Anyway? Vaughan was Associate Publisher for Beautiful Bride Magazine and has been involved in the wedding industry for 15 years.

The wedding workshop begins at 9:30 a.m. and runs three hours. Parking and admission for both the workshop and expo are free.
