1. Rainbow Cake


First on our list of 7 Ways to Show Your LGBTQ Pride at Your Wedding is to have an amazing rainbow cake. Have your cake designer create a cake that has white frosting on the outside so that when the cake is cut by the lovely couple those rainbow colors on the inside truly pop.



2. Bouquet or Boutonniere


Add a rainbow-colored bouquet or boutonniere. Look for flowers in the shades of the rainbow flag which include blue, red, yellow, blue, and purple. You don't necessarily need all the colors of the rainbow but just enough to show your pride.



3. Balloon Decor


Also on our list of 7 Ways to Show Your LGTBQ Pride at Your Wedding is to say it with balloons. Balloon decor is very trendy for 2021 and a fun way to represent your pride. If the colors of the rainbow are too bold for your wedding day decor, then you can add them to your rehearsal dinner or at your wedding brunch the next day.



4. Rock Your Rainbow Colored Sneakers


One of the coolest things on our list of 7 Ways to Show Your LGTBQ Price at Your Wedding is having your attendants wear different colors of shoes in colors of the rainbow. Converse All-Stars are a great choice and they have a vast array of colors that can accommodate you.



5. Rainbow Rice


Who said rice has to be white or brown? An awesome way to show off your pride is to have your guest throw rainbow rice at the wedding instead of the traditional rice that you normally see at weddings. Another option would be throwing rainbow glitter. You can have it thrown with the rice or by itself. The glitter is a way to add a little sparkle. The rainbow rice makes for great photos when captured by your photographer.



6. Desserts


No one should skip dessert at a wedding, and if you do, shame on you. Besides having your traditional wedding cake you can also add rainbow-colored desserts. Some good ideas would be rainbow cake parfaits or fruit layered parfaits as a healthier option.



7. Music "Gay-List"


One sure way to get the party started and represent your pride at the same time is to make a music "gay-list" by artists who are queer or a band with all LGTBQ members. Some cool artists to include in your music "gay-list" are Sleater-Kinny, Indigo Girls, Janelle Monea, and Lady Gaga to name a few.
