January 21, 2016 – Same-sex weddings are now big business throughout the nation. It’s predicted that LGBT weddings will add an expected $21 billion to the already $70 billion industry. That makes for an almost 25% increase in all wedding related purchases. Businesses in Colorado are expected to see an estimated $65 million annually in new revenue with legalized gay marriage.
Pride Guide® Colorado, a total Travel, Wedding & Business Resource state-wide publication is proud to announce its Annual LGBT Wedding & Honeymoon Expo to be held Sunday, May 22nd, 2016. “There is a major increase of engagements in the Colorado LGBT Community in the last year, with the nationwide legalization of same-sex marriage. A recent survey in same-sex couples in Colorado reported 38% have just married or are planning to in the next year,” said The Pride Guide® Publisher Michael McFall. The Pride Guides® have been producing successful LGBT Wedding Expos since the inaugural 2013 Phoenix Expo featuring 57 vendors and 500 attendees. In 2015, our Phoenix Expo increased both numbers tremendously with 145 vendors and over 1800 attendees. We’re so thrilled to announce we are now producing expos in Denver, Tucson, Phoenix
& San Diego in 2016.
The Pride Guides® felt in order to help its readers who are planning their special day, we would provide an LGBT friendly wedding & honeymoon expo, thus eliminating the fear of discrimination or being turned down by a wedding service provider because of their personal beliefs. “We have found an amazing amount of LGBT friendly wedding service providers who really want to serve our community but did not have the resources to reach the LGBT community,” stated McFall. “We are the engine to help these providers reach the market in print, online and now with our expos.”
As always, we have a fabulous fashion show, amazing prize giveaways for paid attendees, a cake dive, bouquet toss, live entertainment and cash bars. The $10.00 online/$15.00 at the door fee gives paid attendees an opportunity to win. Additional raffle tickets will be available during the expo.
Our tag line for the expo is “An Open-Minded Expo, Where All Are Welcome.”
