Some traditional people specially religious ones would not like this....but me? NO! It's their right to do this, having this vow, and making it legal, is one way of protecting their interest and investment. People has can block others happiness because of their own personal belief but they cannot stop people from loving one another whatever diversions they may have. What you will do is noble...go support your friend! and wish them best!

That's a great responce but you should not catagorize all people who ahppen to be straight or religous. My parents happen to be Catholic (MOM)and Jehovah's Witness (DAD) and have no problems with my orientation or relationships. In a perfect world everything would be convient for everybody but right now it's not.But the next generation by learning equality now and putting people in "boxes" is not how we do it. You have the right idea though. Right On!!

i am religious, but i'm open minded. diego's got a point. we shouldn't be judgmental of other people. we should not condemn. we cannot give the happiness that other people feel. i am going there to entirely support my friend for the love and happiness he has discovered in his life. and yeah, i'll wish him the best. thanks for posting.

I stood up for my ex husband at his committment ceremony. I was at my brother's commitment ceremony. They really are not much different than any wedding. At my brother's "wedding" his youngest daughter was the flower girl and the other two kids played a part. It was fun. My ex's ceremony was smaller. It was held by a lake in Montana where he lives. They both wore white...tuxes. I wouldn't stress over the wherewithall. The reception could be different. All the gay men I've known love to party hard. LOL

I would jump at the chance to go to a gay wedding. I totally support anyone who wants to get married. I think it would be fun to go to a wedding that isn't your normal wedding. I would ask your friend what to where and what is going to happen. I am sure he would be excited to tell you all the plans. I hope one day the world accepts everyone for who they are and that gay weddings are accepted in all countries.

i have spoken to my friend already, and they are expecting the guests to either wear a white or fuschia pink dress/attire. the rest is all a surprise, because he's arranged for it all already. thanks for the post.

Well if you're part of the wedding party you should ask what to wear. Contrary to what many people think, Most ceremonies are very similiar and as tasteful as your average ones.I think that its great that you are a great and supportive friend and see love as love. Most of all, don't think to much about it.You friendship is loved and respected otherwise you wouldn't be involved. Most of all have fun!!!

thanks for the post. i would really support him. some of our friends fell out with him because they can't accept it and they were asking me why am i going to attend. and i just simply told them that i am supporting our friend. i am not judgmental about it. every person has a right to be happy and be loved. and friends support each other don't they, LOL.

It depends of the ceremony they want. Hope it`s not too screaming and shocking for the other guests. White clothes are allways suitable. Ask the couple discreetly, share with them your confusing, may be they will tell you what to do.
