20th September 2007, 11:30 AM
Why cant i find a celebrant who does this, and a reception venue that will be open to this and ANY help or advice or planning websites for a lesbian wedding here. I am getting so angry!:mad:
Anyone done this? Any help or advice for South Australia?

thank u, yeah i did see that one before, thought they list celebrants in every state, but not SA, but I have finally found a couple through blaze media... so things are looking better in that regard, still wondering about venues though?!?!

u can hire the mars bar, they do functions, but guessing you could only hire it when they are not normally open.
The Directors Hotel on Gouger St has gone partly gay from what I've seen, so they might be worth trying too

I'm really surprised you were having trouble. We have been treated like potential clients, i.e. well, and we have looked at a variety of places.
Most places we have been to, we have said "we are getting married, what's the best deal you can give us?", and we have encountered nothing but polite people trying to win our custom. Not a single raised eyebrow.
At a few places we said that we were looking for somewhere to have a 30th birthday party, but that was only because we were being cheap and hoping that the birthday menu was cheaper than the wedding one!!
The trick is to assume you will be treated normally. If you ring up and ask in a strange tone "Do you do LESBIAN weddings?", it is giving them permission to react badly, and assuming you will be treated differently. Whereas if you both appear with smiles on your faces, and cheerfully announce your good news, they will respond accordingly.
