The Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) has launched a new resource site for LGBT couples planning a wedding in the state.

"Massachusetts still leads the country when it comes to 'firsts' for the LGBT community," says Betsy Wall, executive director of the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism. "The first online resource guide aimed at helping same-sex couples plan for their wedding celebrations is another one of those firsts."

The website ( offers a step-by-step guide to Massachusetts nuptials. From the list of documents necessary to get married to a resource guide of local LGBT-friendly vendors and services, the new guide offers everything tourists -- and residents -- need to tie the knot in the Bay State.

MOTT is also looking for personal stories of LGBT couples who have wed in Massachusetts. Submit your story, and you could be featured on the website! Click here for more information.
