Gay Friendly Mississippi Wedding Vendors

Back to the USA

We don't have any wedding vendors in this area yet - be the first!.

As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

Mississippi currently does not allow or recognize marriages between gay and lesbian couples, and has both a legal and constitutional ban on gay marriage, but there is a lawsuit working its way through the courts. The state does allow adoption by gay and lesbian couples.
