From locating a gay-friendly rabbi to finding a smokin' tuxeda for you and your wife-to-be, planning a same-sex wedding can present many hurdles not found in the hetero world.

Last week I learned a new word: tuxeda.
It's a tuxedo for women — one of the terms that might come up when planning a lesbian commitment ceremony. Then again, both partners may choose to wear a traditional wedding gown, or something altogether different.

Megan and Debbie Rosenhart, a lesbian couple, drove 1,100 miles from Santa Cruz, Calif., to show beaded and sequined gowns and "tuxedas," jackets and tails designed for women, at Spokane's coronation.
