Bars and clubs, Stonewall needs you!
To celebrate the first same-sex weddings on 29 March 2014, we asked every gay-friendly bar in England and Wales to hold a ‘Wedding March’ themed night on the 28 and 29 March 2014 and join Stonewall in celebrating marriage equality.

Here are some fundraising ideas for a night to remember…
- Hold a ‘Wedding March’ themed night and ask everyone to get their wedding outfits on. Have a competition (£2 to enter) and the best dressed for the evening wins a prize!
- A simple and easy way to fundraise for Stonewall is to donate £1 of each entry to us or ask for donations at the door. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order your collection box to borrow now.
- No wedding celebration is complete without fancy cocktails – dedicate a drink to the ‘Wedding March’ and donate 50p of each drink bought to Stonewall. Click here for our suggested recipe's and cocktail names for 'Wedding March' cocktails.
- Every couple has their first dance, so why not have a song request hour for your patrons and ask for their alternative first dance for £1 donations for Stonewall.
- You could purchase Stonewall t-shirts and ask the staff to wear them on the night.
If your getting married or not, you can still support Stonewall!
- Ask your local bar if they're taking part by holding a night.
- Organise a celebration at home and countdown to ‘Wedding March’
- Make a donation - click here or text 'LOVE' to 70500 to donate £5
