As sucky as it is, I would rather not give my $$ to a bunch of bigots.

That’s not what the Supreme Court ruled, actually. Read up on it, but it was basically a procedural ruling that the state caused too much hardship on the business for not making a cake (which they deemed as art). A wedding venue is not even close to that so I do think you have a case to sue - if that’s what you want. I would contact the HRC and see what they think

Wow I’m so sorry OP I can’t wrap my head around how some people’s minds work. I wish you and your bride to be a great wedding at an even better venue

Find a new wedding venue, then send the venue that refused to host you a card letting them know how many straight engaged couples with money plan to attend your wedding and that those couples will know how much a bigot they are and they'll be taking their business elsewhere.

Infuriated! Ignorant f’ers Please share the venue. I definitely want to share that with my family in NC. My niece married her partner at the end of a mud run in NC. Had their (small) reception, later in the evening, at a nice sushi restaurant. All of this in a much smaller town than Raleigh! Congratulations on your pending nuptials. 😃 🏳️‍🌈 💕

That makes me sad. Wherever you have your wedding, it’s sure to be a beautiful and loving ceremony - this is that venue’s loss

I’m sorry :/ I’d put that in a review to save other couples their time and money. A Practical Wedding has some great vendors and they are LGBTQ+ friendly. Congratulations and best of luck with planning!

So sorry 😢. But honestly, my feeling is that although these bigots got empowered by SCOTUS and the Prez, at least we know who they are and we don’t give them our money. I would encourage you to drop them some Yelp feedback, so the rest of us homos know not to give them our money

:/ sorry fam

Can I ask what city you are in? Really sorry that happened.

Omg that’s terrible

That sucks 🤬

Did they say it was because you were both ladies? When I reached out to vendors for my wedding, I let it be known that it was two women and asked for their availability on that date. Any rejections were because they were "unavailable", I didn't read into it too much. Southwest Virginia here

Um is that kind of discrimination legal???

After 7 years of actively managing my portfolio I have concluded that simple boring index funds are way to go. I did well in tech stocks but have some I'll times entries and exits which kinda took down profits. Do you still believe actively trading would produce better results. I have learned quite a lot in process but now I don't think I would be able to give same time when life gets busy with higher roles, kids etc. Anyone have been successful in managing their portfolios and beating indexes.
