Two Turtle Doves or a Disney Princess?

Summer is the time of weddings. It feels like at least someone I know is going to one every weekend from May through September. Combine the actual ceremonies and receptions with the bridal showers, bachelor parties, bachlorette parties, and it gets to be all lovey dovey wedding schmedding all the time! Wash, rinse, repeat. All summer long.

And it's not much better for those getting married. Point in case, when we got married, I swear we got the same exact wedding cards. There were maybe 5 or 6 different ones, and we got 10 of each. A few creative handmade ones, or from people out of town here and there, but realistically, same mass produced pastel sappy card.

Until one.

It came from one of the groomsmen. Bright pink. Disney Princess on the front, cut to follow the shape of her dress. Complete with glitter. Opened up, and its a little girl's birthday card. I don't remember what it said, but that's so not the point. We laughed so hard at the oddness of it, it was by far our favorite.

So now, when one of our closer friends get married (doesn't quite work as well with those distant relatives who think your fruity anyway) we attempt to find the perfect card to celebrate their day. A card that has NOTHING to do with marriage, weddings, or even anniversarys. Just hoping to brighten up their day. Although, I must admit, when this particular groomsman got married, his card was at least anniversary oriented, but here's the catch. It lit up, played some interesting bedroom music, AND. AND. Vibrated. I think it worked out ok ;)
