I was browsing through some old comments on Offbeat Bride (as one does), and I came across a lovely wedding greeting left under this post: “Marriage equality issues with hetero ceremonies in Australia.”
Jill left this little tidbit in the comments:
My brother's gay, my husband's best friend is a lesbian, and we work in the theatre, so we had many of the same feelings.
We included a couple of shout outs: the Unitarian greeting of “whoever you are, wherever you're from, whatever you believe, and whomever you love, you are welcome here” was one of the first moments of the ceremony.
Wait, did you miss that?
Whoever you are,
wherever you're from,
whatever you believe,
and whomever you love,
you are welcome here.
How beautiful is that? If you're searching for a way to show solidarity with your loved ones or simply a way to announce that your wedding is a safe space for all, I encourage you to steal this greeting, my Offbeat Brides.
Got another way to show everyone some love at your wedding? Let us know in the comments!
