SOME­THING OLD, SOME­THING NEW, SOME­THING BOR­ROWED, SOME­THING GAY

OUR WOULD- BE WED­DING PLAN­NER EX­TRAOR­DI­NAIRE MATT NEW­BURY LOOKS AT WAYS YOU CAN MAKE YOUR WED­DING COM­PLETELY UNIQUE – AND HE’S NOT EVEN AN­GLING FOR AN IN­VITE

Pride Life Magazine - - SPONSORED FEATURE -

pparently less than 15% of same-sex cou­ples in­cor­po­rate wed­ding tra­di­tions like toss­ing a bou­quet, or wear­ing some­thing old, some­thing new, some­thing bor­rowed and some­thing blue into their big day. And why should we – it’s the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to be orig­i­nal.

THE IN­VI­TA­TION If you fancy go­ing for the ul­ti­mate hip­ster wed­ding in­vi­ta­tion, what about post­ing peo­ple a boxed View­mas­ter and a cus­tom pic­ture wheel with seven pic­tures and/or text? Ei­ther choose some of you through­out your re­la­tion­ship fol­lowed by an in­vi­ta­tion slide, or get much more cre­ative. Re­mark­ably th­ese retro clas­sics are just $10 each (plus postage and pack­age from the States) in­clud­ing your cus­tomised reels and a gift box if you or­der 100 or more sets, but if this sounds a bit ex­trav­a­gant for your bud­get, why not or­der sev­eral at $30 dol­lars each in­clud­ing a dif­fer­ent se­lec­tion of pic­tures on each one and leave them for peo­ple to en­joy on a ta­ble at your wed­ding. You’ll then be able to keep them your­self af­ter your big day. Go to: im­age3d. com

THE RINGS If you can’t wait to slip a ring onto your fin­ger but fancy some­thing a bit more hi-tech, there are some un­usual op­tions out there. One Lothario re­cently cre­ated a pair of rings that glow when they are in close prox­im­ity to each other, while we also stum­bled upon fo­rums ask­ing if GPS track­ing rings ex­ist – the an­swer is yes, but should you re­ally be get­ting mar­ried in the first place? Our favourite though is the soon to be re­leased Re­mem­ber Ring. 24 hours be­fore your spe­cial day, the Hot Spot™ on the in­te­rior sur­face of your ring will warm to 120º F for ap­prox­i­mately 10 sec­onds, and con­tinue to warm up ev­ery hour. You are cer­tainly never go­ing to for­get that an­niver­sary! Go to: alaska­jew­elry. com
