The coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on all of our lives and the wedding/events industry is no exception. Many of our colleagues, the exceptional wedding pros we recommend over and over to our clients because of their fantastic work, are now facing substantial losses and delays in their income as a result. The spring months are some of the busiest in the year and, as you can imagine, being unexpectedly out of work and a paycheck for the indefinite future can be catastrophic to a small business.
Aisle Less Traveled has partnered with Equally Wed to raise funds for the incredible LGBTQ+ wedding pros who tirelessly advocate with us, every day, for inclusion of our community in the very gendered and heterocentric world of weddings. Wedding pros who understand the needs of our LGBTQ+ community are desperately needed to ensure that LGBTQ+ folks can have a wedding experience free from the bigotry, hate, and microagressions we face in our daily lives.
» Until the COVID-19 crisis is resolved, our regular donation of $50 per wedding booked will be going to this fund – which goes directly to LGBTQ+ pros who are struggling to put food on the table, support their families, and keep their businesses open.
Our regular Giving Back program provides $50 from each wedding we book to progressive organizations working towards social justice, full equality for all people, protecting this one planet we have, and generally making the world a better place. We launched this effort in May 2017, and we are grateful to our clients, whose wedding bookings have enabled us to support these fantastic organizations:
