The Supreme Court ruling on Proposition 8 that came out on Wednesday proved to be good news for the gay and lesbian couples in California who can now legally marry in the state.

However Supreme Court didn’t realised that its ruling can boost prospects for Golden State’s wedding industry.

There’s no specific data available on how many gay couples live in California right now or how many will come to the state for marriage. However, the Williams Institute, a research center at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law has come up with an estimate according to which  nearly 40,000 same-sex couples could marry in California over the coming few years.

Everybody ranging from wedding planners to caterers to florists shall have more opportunities to earn more dollars. The average wedding cost in USA is now approaching about $30,000.

“We’re hoping to see an influx,” said Lindsay Jones, owner of 2 Friends Events based in San Francisco Bay Area. “We’ve done some [same-sex weddings] in the past, and I think it’s a great opportunity. It opens doors for both couples and businesses.”
