Same sex couples aren’t the only ones benefiting from last week’s Supreme Court rulings.  Wedding businesses say they’ve seen a boom in business already.  One site, “Purple Onions”, has seen a 500% increase in the number of vendors that list on their site.  Another site said traffic on their gay weddings page more than doubled the day after the ruling.  An estimated 37,000 same sex couples will get married over the next three years in California alone.  The state’s economy is expected to gain about $492 million in new business revenue from the weddings.
