LGBT Training and Etiquette
Your company could benefit from LGBT etiquette training. It is important to address the nuances of LGBT weddings correctly and with respect. Understanding terms such as honor attendants and distinctions with regards to engagement rings and aisles will prove to be significant to same-sex couples, as well as having customized literature and LGBT-friendly logos.
