Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito shares her thoughts on Bridal Fashion Week October 2015.

As Carrie Bradshaw says, ""Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future... this is known as Fashion Week."

Just over a week ago the Wedding Glitterati decentralized upon New York for Bridal Fashion Week. Having been invited to The Knot Gala at The New York Metropolitan Library, I couldn't help but to peak in and see what the designers were showcasing this season.

Weddings are Gay. Or Are They? A WIPA Las Vegas Event

WIPA President and Las Vegas Wedding Planner Andrea Eppolito shares photos from an event entitled "Weddings are GAY.  Or are they?"

As the President of WIPA Las Vegas, I have had the opportunity to help plan and host some spectacular events throughout the Las Vegas Valley, and yet none has touched and moved me quite like this one.

On Tuesday, September 1, 2015 our local WIPA Chapter hosted an event called "Weddings are Gay.  Or are they?"  Initially, there was some concern about the title of the event; some found it offensive.  Which was precisely why we needed to host it.  A wedding is a wedding, and it celebrates two people in love.  Gay, straight, bisexual or simply fluid, a wedding is rooted in love and romance.  So why do we single gays out?
