Heterosexual couples and lesbian couples are welcome here, but gay male couples are not. Bigotry is not involved. Where is "here"?

"here" = an actual place? an event? an organization? an activity?

Would a gay couple not be welcome because there is no woman in the group?

Would a pair of male friends be welcome? A pair of female friends? A man with a female friend? A man alone? A woman alone?

Relevant whether the couples are married/in some kind of legal union? Relevant whether they have children?

Are only romantically involved couples allowed 'here'?

You also missed Doriana's questions above.

Bridal dresses relevant? Bridesmaids dresses?
Is 'here' somewhere where women's clothing is sold? Where it is advertised? Modeled? Designed? Made?

Are men unaccompanied by women not allowed because they would have no reason to need to go? Because the organisers don't want men going just to look at women?

If a straight couple went 'here', would the woman be wearing a wedding dress? Would both members of a lesbian couple be wearing one? Would someone not in the couple be wearing a wedding dress? Would there be other couples there? Is it some kind of world record attempt? A publicity stunt? Is it an exhibition of wedding dresses?

This sounds something like a "bridal fair" or fashion show for wedding & bridesmaid's dresses. Backstage at such a show? Though I doubt the male half of a hetero couple would be allowed there.

To relax from the stress of a big wedding? or just to relax in general?
My husband & I didn't have a wedding - we eloped & were married by a J.P. Would this have applied to us?

Hmmm - different ways of relaxing, in general -
having a good stiff drink?
having a piece of cake or other sweet?
having a pedicure?
Doing something (or having something done to you) physical? or more mental (like listening to music)?

******* SPOILER ******
The sappy & enjoyable TV series "Four Weddings" has four brides who attend each others' weddings & rate them on the venue, dress, food, & overall experience. So there has to be a bride wearing a dress, but it can be a woman marrying another woman & sometimes is. Could it be a man in drag? In theory, yes, but they never do that, so I guess it's deliberate.Please check out my new puzzle!!

"Fashion show" was sort of 1/2 right, I would think. Maybe 1/4?
I'm really glad I eloped now. I would hate to have my wedding rated, even by 3 of my best friends. They wouldn't be BF for long!
Thanks for an interesting puzzle.
