The Latest in LGBTQ Weddings and Honeymoons


ARIA Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Completes the Gay Wedding Institute Certification Course

In December, ARIA Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas brought us in for a full day certification course for their entire sales and wedding team. The beautiful hotel and gorgeous wedding chapel has been serving wedding couples for years, and now that marriage equality is legal in Nevada they wanted to improve their readiness for same-sex weddings.

Throughout the day, we talked about all kinds of things including LGBT language and terminology, data, trends, traditions, marketing and more. We did a bunch of activities and role-plays designed to replicate real-life scenarios they could face. They even planned some mock weddings for fictional same-sex couples.

Now as a Gay Wedding Institute certified company, they receive all sorts of benefits including rewriting all of their marketing materials (which I've already done), ongoing certification for new hires, a technical assistance helpline, and much more.

We are proud to welcome ARIA Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas into the Gay Wedding Institute certified family. I know this team is going to do a really great job supporting same-sex couples who choose to marry there.  More
