The Knot Pro Educator

I’ve Partnered With The Knot to Bring Even More Inclusivity to the Wedding Space!

Brittny Drye Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine | On-Air Wedding Expert | LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Wedding Industry

If you're here, you probably have noticed that Love Inc. isn't quite like other wedding publications. We share wedding inspiration and ideas but in a way that is truly inclusive of both hetero and LGBTQ love, equally. As I've always said, it's not a gay wedding, it's just a wedding. And I've made it my personal mission to educate wedding professionals on how to make their businesses more equality-mindedā„¢  so that that when they do work with LGBTQ+ clients, they can do so in a manner that is natural, respectful and educated. 

I just had the pleasure of preaching my equality-mindedā„¢ mission at The Special Events Conference last week in San Diego, and it really feels like a wave is happening because just coming off of that, I'm excited to announce that I have joined the elite group of industry leaders, in many different fields of the wedding space, to be a part of The Knot Pro Educators Group. Together, we will elevate, educate and empower our industry from multiple facets. I'm talking the best of the best wedding planners, designers, entertainment groups, beauty pros, cakes, stationery, you name it. They really did cover the the gamut and I am so honored to be labeled amongst these industry leaders who I have long admired. 

We'll be sharing our expertise through webinars, speaking engagements, blog posts and more. So if you're a wedding pro, you'll want to keep an eye out for these opportunities to better your business. And I'm grateful for The Knot for recognizing the need for inclusivity education in the wedding industry, and allowing me their incredible platform to share my expertise.
