"I've always known. I love you, and I'm so proud of you."
Marriage equality on the rise in the deep south!
It's official: Arizona is No. 31 for states with marriage equality!
The world is finally changing its ways on gay rights and it’s about time.
A federal judge ruled Sunday that Alaska’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional, paving the way for same-sex couples to begin marrying in the state for the first time.
The holiday season gives those newly engaged couples the perfect opportunity to announce their engagement to friends and family the old-fashioned way (i.e. pre-Facebook). Here are six creative ways to loop your loved ones in on your exciting news.
Add a twist to the typical way you tell family by leaving up your new wedding website on the home computer. Imagine your aunt’s surprise when she goes to Google stuffing recipes and ends up seeing your fantastic news!
While you relax in your food coma state post-Thanksgiving dinner, surrounded by family, suggest playing a game and sneakily work in your announcement (we suggest Pictionary or Scrabble).
As part of the holiday traditions, many families like to embarrass you show off your childhood videos to your other half. After watching your five-your-old self in ballet class, insist that you and your partner have your own video to share and pop in the DVD of your announcement.
SAY IT WITH SWEETS
If it’s your duty to bring the dessert, announce your engagement with icing.
Have a young niece/nephew/cousin who notoriously can’t keep a secret? Whisper that you are getting married and see how the rumor spreads.
Pass out gifts for everyone disguised as holiday presents and consisting of your save-the-date or photo showing off the ring. (But don’t forget to give them real gifts!)
"While not a glamorous wedding, it really reflected who we are: a little tailored for Holly and little girly for me. And the most important people in the world to us were there to share it with us."Real Weddings 3231

My partner and I have a unique engagement story. We both identify as queer and my partner, Owen, is transgender. Although we often subscribe to what "men and women" do in relationship, we wanted to be sure that we were being very intentional about how to move forward together and which traditions felt good to us.Engagement 3099
