Sponsorship Information

According to a study conducted by The Knot, 95% of same-sex couples think vendors need a way to communicate that they are LGBTQ+ friendly. This is why we are hosting an inclusive wedding show – believe it or not it is still hard for same-sex couples to make initial contact to find out if vendors are inclusive. There is no show like this in Ontario, it is important to us to reach out to and include LGBTQ+ couples and provide them with a forum to know they will be treated with respect and offered superior services on this most special day they are planning.  We anticipate great attendance from all across Ontario, and Quebec, in both attendees and participants.  This is a show for everyone, inclusive heterosexual couples – what better way to show your support then to know you are working with professionals that share your belief of marriage for all.
