When my partner and I were planning our wedding last year, we decided right away we wanted to skip the wedding traditions that didn’t feel like us. We love the beauty of passing on traditions from generation to generation but one of the traditions we didn’t love was the constant gender expectations. We wanted a more gender-neutral wedding approach.
My partner and I were supposed to get married in June… but because of Coronavirus we had to move our date to 2021. In May, we wrote, recorded, and filmed the song together as a little project to announce the postponement to our guests… and to help us feel better.
Looking for a gender-neutral vow for your wedding? Gender-neutral vows can be as beautiful, romantic, funny, quirky, and inspiring as more traditional phrasings. Check out five examples from the Offbeat Bride community.

Plus, it’s just an honor to be able to feature this beautiful non-binary couple during the month of Pride.
It’s Pride month! Let’s deck out your LGBTQ+ wedding with these rainbow wedding details [Updated for 2021!]
June is celebrated in most areas of the U.S. as Pride Month. While we love to celebrate LGBTQ+ weddings all year round, we especially like to give some special attention to Pride-themed weddings during the month of June. Also, we’re not into “rainbow washing” — where businesses make money from the LGBTQ community, but don’t give back… so we made a point to include queer-owned businesses and companies that donate a portion of their proceeds of Pride gear to charities.
