Gay Bride Diaries

Dearly Beloved,

Put a little PRIDE and glitter in your wedding.  I’m not saying it has to be all rainbows and sparkly things. Let’s face it, how many people do we know that get distracted by sparkly things?

Random Wedding thought of the week:

Glitter kind of makes a good sunscreen. But make sure you wear real sunscreen if you’re getting married outdoors! You could put out some for guests in little decorated bottles.

Quote from my memoir, “Diary of a Gay, Pregnant Bride”:

By now I had met many gay people and heard their coming out stories, each so different. Some stories were sad, yet powerful. It’s hard not to have sympathy for people struggling just to be themselves. I then understood the meaning of gay pride. It’s not that people are just proud to be gay, but they’re proud for standing up and being who they truly are, especially when it’s so difficult.

Questions to Consider:

How much glitter is too much? I found that out the hard way. Glitter looks great in person. Photos….Not so much. And I mean don’t put on too much or the shine will reflect in the camera flash and the sparkly places will just turn into gleaming white shine that won’t make you look any prettier and just down right ruin the photo. So test the glitter out with some photos ahead of time so you know just the right amount to put on.

And where should it go? Suggestions would be one or two places, don’t overdo it. Under the eyebrows is nice, or the side of the upper cheeks. Chest and clavicle area are nice too. Arms may be a bit much. Even you men out there love glitter. Save the excess for the Pride parades.

Did you know?

Priscilla Presley’s engagement ring was a 3.5 carat rock surrounded by a detachable row of smaller diamonds.

Good Advice:

Ya, we know you’re gay. You don’t need rainbow flags at your wedding to remind us. But a little pride color somewhere reminds us of how proud we are to be who we are and marry whom we love.

Pride, parades, and proud colors,

Kelly
