We asked experts how to plan an accessible and disability-friendly wedding and WOW. There were so many great tips we had to break it up into four categories: wedding venue accessibility, accessible seating, sensory-friendly wedding tips, and other accessibility concerns. If you’re considering the needs of your guests with disabilities and want to make sure they’re comfortable at your celebration, you’re going to want to bookmark this post ASAP!
This accessible wedding in Scotland is not one to be missed! Zara and Alex have traveled the world together, aided greatly by the groom’s own design genius: a high-tech powerchair, built by and for wheelchair users. The couple initially had trouble finding a wheelchair-friendly, accessible wedding venue in Edinburgh, so they had their wedding in Glasglow. We love their story and their celebration, documented by Sarah of Joy Story Photography.
Will your wedding be accessible? Maybe it should be, even if you and your partner don’t have disabilities. Chances are good that someone in your wedding party or on your guest list does, even if it’s not a visible disability. Let us share less-stress tricks for accessible weddings.
I’ve attended events where I had trouble accessing information, or was entirely excluded, because of my blindness, auditory processing disorder, or food intolerances. I want to ensure our friends and family are included and accommodated at our wedding in the ways that work for them. How do we make it accessible for everyone?

This herbal garden wedding in Toronto was light, airy, and full of garden whimsy. We’re talking real herbs, greenery-covered cookies and cakes, and tons of green and purple details that popped in their lovely venue, Boil King. The venue in particular was a win for the couple, Christie and Matt, since they needed it to accommodate people with various disabilities including four wheelchairs. Not an easy task! But the deed was done and it was done beautifully.

Sasha and Brant had a gorgeous backyard wedding in Tennessee that was so full of raw and emotional moments. Try and stop the feels when you see the groom’s tears at their first look.
