Become a member of the National Gay Wedding Association and help support our mission to create the largest resource of inclusive wedding vendors in the United States. As the leader in this corner of the wedding industry, a partnership with NGWA guarantees access to exclusive information, events, networking opportunities, and a featured spot on our Vendors page, all in one place. Our members find community not only in their shared professional interests but also in their ideological interests; we’re active and motivated change agents.

LGBTQ+ couples should feel comfortable when they approach vendors about hosting their wedding celebrations. National Gay Wedding Association provides you — the vendor — an education that covers the language, resources, and business practices to make the wedding experiences of LGBTQ+ couples comfortable and inclusive.

Membership includes a company profile featured on the NGWA vendors page where couples and other vendors will learn more about your services and your inclusive business practices. We approve quality vendors with proven, high-level knowledge and support of LGBTQ+ couples as well as a demonstration of inclusive practices. Members will establish themselves as leaders in inclusive awareness and drive more LGBTQ+ couple referrals to their business.
