Rainbow Flags and Glitter Cannons: Two Things You Won’t Find at A Gay Wedding

Just the thought of a gay wedding brings up images of rainbow streamers, go-go boy entertainment and glitter cannons covering the crowd with gay-approved decor. Now that gay marriage is legal, everyone can finally enjoy the ultra decadence and over-the-topness that can only come from a gay wedding. Let’s take a peek, shall we?

Bakeries will probably get mass orders for colorful wedding cakes.


But wait, looks like tres leches is also a gay wedding fave.

At least flower girls and ring bearers will get new swag.


Or the little tykes can dress like they are at a straight wedding.


Surely the first dance will be an epic, pulse-pounding club jam.


Oof.  Looks like they love slow dancing to Dreaming of You like everyone else.


No gay wedding is complete without a rainbow arch to stand beneath, right?


However, it isn’t reality.

Of course, a ton of glitter and confetti is expected. No one parties like the gays.


Oh wait, glitter is so 2001.


All guests must bring their own rainbow flag to celebrate, right?


 Not even a rainbow piñata full of Skittles?

Please tell me there’s a rainbow walkway.


Nope, just a normal walk down a beige aisle here.

Surely guests will up their gay game for the reception, right?

So, the reception won’t be anything like a Saturday night out?


Just when we thought we had figured it out…
