Let's Be Gay

Have you ever wondered about the language to use when marketing to the LGBT community? The stereotypical words used like "bride" and groom" simply won't attract engaged LGBT couples. 

Here's a quote from a Knot Pro blog post..."Working with LGBTQ couples requires fluidity in pronouns, and it's your best bet to ditch the terms "bride" and "groom" right off the bat. Instead, consider using "fiance" or "partner," and avoid plugging in pronouns in email intros and follow-ups." Click here to read the entire post
If you want to learn how to target this particular market, then this is a meeting you don't want to miss!  

You will also learn from our very own WedNet member Sheryl Baker about the Top 10 LGBTQ honeymoon destinations and LGBTQ travel safety tips. Join us on Tuesday, September 18th!

Sheryl Baker

From an early age, Sheryl had a passion for travel and has been blessed to have visited 66 countries and counting! With a degree in Business Management and careers in Oil & Gas and Educational Sales, it only seemed natural to move into the Travel Industry upon retirement.  

Falling in love with Africa over 10 years ago led to a specialization in African Travel that she shares with her clients. After 5 trips to Africa, the latest being in November 2017 tracking the Mountain Gorillas of Uganda, she shares her passion for this great continent with anyone who will listen. 

In addition, Sheryl has specialization in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, Gay Destination Weddings and Honeymoons, Europe and LGBT Travel.  

It is very important to her that all clients have access to amazing adventures and holidays all over the world and it is Sheryl's goal to ensure that all memories far exceed expectations.  

Travel isn't an abstract idea. Travel is a source of education for young and old and can broaden views on culture, people, and places. Travel can be enjoyed by everyone if you have the right guide and Sheryl strives to be that guide for all of her clients.  Sheryl is also a member of the LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

Featured Vendor


The Traveling Photo Booth

Husband and wife duo Tina & Sol McMillin have been capturing their own once-in-a-lifetime moments in photo booths for years and they're now excited to help others create their own. When not bringing the Greatest Photo Booth in the Galaxy to events around Austin, Sol's climbing, playing or listening to music while Tina's enjoying a few of her favorite things: cheese, music, being with their two firecrackers for sons, and just keeping it real.
