Doing up the I-Dos at Atlanta’s best wedding venues

Sprawling or intimate, create your own Big Fat Gay Wedding at a perfect-fit venue for you and your man’s brand of love.

By Mike Fleming

Now that getting married is a decidedly gay thing to do, an increasing number of couples are graduating from shacking up to popping the question. And hint-hint: Post-Valentine season is the perfect time to drop some jewelry on a dude and make a fuss in front of your friends and family in venues with lower prices before spring settles in for good.

Say “I do” to each other and “Yes” to a ceremony, reception and guests at one of these gay-friendly wedding venues in Atlanta, from sprawling and fancy to hip and intimate.
