Boston's Floral and FEVA
The wedding industry, which has struggled amid years of sinking marriage rates, is experiencing an upswing thanks to the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. The typical total cost of a wedding is about $26,000, and a surge of gay weddings could send hundreds of millions of dollars into local businesses and economies in the coming months and years. FEVA is connecting LGBTQ couples with vendors and businesses that are open-minded and support marriages of all kinds. Boston's Floral looks forward to helping the wedding "backlog" of over 150,000 same-sex couples throughout the US.
Support for same-sex marriage has risen from 37% in 2009 to 57% in May 2015
