The Gay Engagement Ring Market Opens Up

With same-sex marriages on the increase, the gay wedding industry is thriving. The National Wedding Show in Manchester is bigger and better this year.

It may or may not surprise you to discover that over 60,000 couples have taken their oaths and entered into a civil partnership since 2005 and that this new element of the wedding industry is growing rapidly. You only have to look at the many gay wedding shows held throughout the year on various locations around the country to realise that the industry has taken off and is being well received by the gay community.

Many designers of engagement rings and other wedding paraphernalia are expanding their collections to make them more appealing to the gay wedding market, and this has not gone unnoticed by the F&L Designer Guides team who are pleased to announce that Christopher Anderson, one of their high profile designers is aiming to promote more of his designs as desirable for gay engagement ring shoppers. Christopher says that he believes shows such as the National Gay Wedding Show are getting bigger and better than ever before and that this is testament to society’s acceptance of same-sex couples and their need to express their love and relationships in the same way as different-sex couples.

The National Gay Wedding Show will be held in Manchester in March this year and whether you are newly engaged or your big day is almost upon you, there is something to inspire everyone here. Catwalk models reveal the latest in wedding fashion while live entertainment and shows demonstrate the latest features from the wedding arena today.

The event is a one-day extravaganza with over 100 exhibitors, from designers of stationary to creators of wedding cakes and from photographers to florists. F form F&L Designer Guides believes that this is an exciting time for those in the wedding industry and for engagement ring designers in particular. With a completely new market to cater for, he recognises that designers such as Christopher Anderson have the opportunity to explore a new avenue and get even more creative.
