Today the Supreme Court bolsters gay marriage with two major rulings—same-sex couples were entitled to federal benefits and, by declining to decide a case from California, effectively allowed same-sex marriages there. (We at TheMail.com are happy about this.)

These rulings open up a huge opportunity for affiliates. The wedding industry is massive and there is now an obvious new found demand for same-sex weddings. Now is the time to help gay couples find what they want online while shopping for their wedding! The average cost of a wedding in the US in 2012 was $25,656, a pretty staggering number. And, with the average gay couple tending to have a much higher income and ability to spend more on their wedding, there is plenty of opportunity for affiliate commissions!

If you are not familiar with the wedding industry you might think the opportunities are limited, but we have done some research to help you come out and get on the bandwagon—here is a list to things you can promote:
