Will David Tutera Finally Put Gay Couples on 'My Fair Wedding'?
After five seasons of My Fair Wedding, celebrity event and wedding planner David Tutera may finally be ready to include gay weddings on the hit wedding makeover reality series.
My Fair Wedding: Unveiled, a revamped sixth season of the series, premiered Sept. 8 on WE tv. Tutera discusses the show's lack of gay representation in a new interview on Advocate.com. "My goal — and God help me if I don't hit it — [is that] we will have a gay couple, if not two, either by the end of this season… or by next season," he says. "I'm on a mission. And when I'm on a mission, let me tell you."
And who better than Tutera to transform tacky same-sex nuptials into classy affairs on television? "It's time for me to come out — no pun intended — as an expert in gay weddings," boasts Tutera, who married his partner nine years ago in Vermont. "I need to be the voice of having 26 years of doing weddings for all these fabulous people… And it might be that a gay planner with a partner might actually be the person who can actually tell people what to do, and share with them my advice on how to plan a wedding for a gay couple."
And after recently getting the very first black woman on the cover of a major bridal magazine, Tutera has another goal: "Now my mission is to get a gay couple on the cover."
