We love this quote, and in essence it's a good piece of guidance: "It's very dear to me the issue of gay marriage or as I like to it: "marriage" You know, because I had lunch this afternoon, not gay lunch. I parked my car; I didn't gay park it. Liz Feldman" In other words do what you want, don't feel it necessary to gay theme your Wedding Stationery.
Create something that you'll look back on as the true meaning of your desire to publicly celebrate your union. This is the first formal news that you send to your friends and family so your personalities will be reflected in the attention to detail that a good designer can create using your theme in either an off the shelf or bespoke design on sumptuous paper. We have found it's really useful to create a Pinterest board for our clients and if you search under 'Wedding Stationery' you can start to collect some samples that you would like to share with your designer.
There are lots of Civil Partnership and Gay Wedding ideas, so it will help to concentrate your attention on the details you would like to incorporate into your unique wedding stationery suite. Experience has taught us that there is one golden rule to stick with, 'Keep it Simple'. You will want to express your exuberance and individuality great, go ahead, but steer away from complex invitation creations.
Simplicity is sophisticated and if you choose a designer to design your stationery – let them get to know what makes you and your partner tick then stand back and let them work the magic. Indeed a good design house will gather all the details needed, help with the wording and then provide beautiful quality stationery, effortlessly. It's a good idea to start out with wording that conforms to traditional etiquette and then tailor it to your taste.
There is quite a bit of information to organise, and if you use a designer you'll want to look at everything from Save the Date cards to Thank You notes, Seating Plans, Order of Service etc. We at Toby Designs offer the first consultation and quotation free of charge. Creating bespoke stationery takes a lot more thought than choosing designs from a catalogue, so it really is a good idea to start the process at least five, if not six months before the big day.
This gives plenty of time for any alterations and proofing of the wording.

It's not me saying it." "Well, Howard, I don't know whether every silly thing that gets said is going to be repeated to me now, but to all the hairdressers out there, including the men who are listening, I don't think that in life one can look at a whole profession full of different human beings and say gee, we know something about everyone of those human beings," the prime minister said, before adding "it's absurd." The Guardian. Today Howard Sattler was sacked by the station. Whilst I know there is quite a history of sexist and personal attacks on Gillard - and the presenter's tone seems sniggeringly homophobic - this seems absurd.
Was Andrew Marr sacked when he asked about Gordon Brown's alleged depression? Or was Sue Lawley sacked after she asked Gordon Brown if he was gay? PS Guardian Comment Is Free Open Thread; 'Julia Gillard was asked if her partner was gay by a radio host.

Hard to know if The Gays will be getting behind this hawt bent cop or the gay one out of those morbidly obese twins who vote Tory and like showtunes.
Andrew Pierce, quoted in an article in BBC News Magazine online; The Gay People Against Gay Marriage. I know the interweb is international, but it seems strange all the other voices are American. And, unlike, Uncle Tom Pierce they seemed to have well-thought out, valid arguments.
Although - obviously - eleven posh queens at one of Auntie Andrew's dinner parties is a really representative sample of the world of the gay, I would have thought they'd be exactly the sort of pooves who loved gay marriage.

Greenwald said that this experience has allowed him to cast a critical eye on the subjects he reports on. When you grow up with any kind of real challenge that forces you to evaluate your relationship to these conventions and the things that you re taught you start to question what that system is. Greenwald said.
Is it really valid in the way that it s rejecting me or is it the system itself that is corrupted? I think that lends itself to a much more critical eye that you end up casting upon things that you re taught are indisputably true. CNN - you can watch the interview excerpt here.
