The Pronouncement


Husband and husband? Sure! Each other’s one and only? Why not? Partners in life? Absolutely!


The pronouncement can be a tricky subject for LGBT couples planning their nuptials. While some couples chose not to include this in their ceremony, others want to be officially introduced to their guests as a married couple for the first time.


Go with your instincts in this situation. There is no right or wrong answer. You could even be pronounced, simply, as “married.”


If you’re having a casual ceremony, something fun such as “partners in crime” is a cute, fun way to tell your loved ones that you’re in it for the long haul.


Officiants who have wed LGBT couples before will likely have experience with this, so turn to them for advice.


However you chose to word your pronouncement, be sure it feels like it’s authentic to you as a couple!
