Washington State Issues First Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

At 12:01 a.m. this morning, Washington State started issuing same-sex couples marriage licenses for the first time and couples celebrated with certificates in hand. The state has a 3-day waiting period, so couples can’t get their certificates signed until Sunday at the earliest but it didn’t stop couples from lining up hours before.

The law was passed by legislators during the November elections when 54 percent of voters expressed their approval of Referendum 74 legalizing same-sex marriage. Washington is now one of nine states that have legalized gay marriage — Maine and Maryland approved same-sex marriage last month as well.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
