Last week Lex wrote about being invited to a same-sex wedding, and she was having a really hard time finding ‘gay wedding cards that don’t suck’:
Another card read, “For the Newlyweds, Justly married,” which seemed a bit too political for me. I realize that it’s an important act, but I think it’s more important to focus on the actual wedding and commitment and the people themselves during that day instead of politicians.
At the Vancouver Public Library gift shop, where I buy a lot of my cards, I saw a card with two suits which read, “You suit each other perfectly, Congratulations.” It’s not a bad idea, but that card is so cheesy that I need crackers to go with it.
She did find Raindrop Cards, which offer a pretty ordinary set of same-sex cards. One way to be the uncool straight kid at the gay wedding: give a card with a big rainbow on it. All the weddings I’ve attended were hetero, so I’ve never faced with this problem. I tipped off my friends at Hailey Kim cards–they ought to get into this emerging niche market.
