In case you were stressing about where to find an appropriate card for our wedding

I hadn’t even thought about this, but where, exactly, is one supposed to find a “Congratulations on Getting Married” card for Marianne and me?

Walk into any grocery, corner or big box store and there are a TON of cute (and not-so-cute) cards for Mr. and Mrs. so-and-so, but nothing for Mrs. and Mrs.

Until now. At Target.

According to a story by the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Target says the move reflects an emphasis on diversity and inclusivity.

Placed on card racks under the headings of ‘For two special men’ and ‘For two special women,’ the cards are adorned with phrases such as ‘Mr. & Mr.’ and ‘Two very special women, one very special love.’

The cards hit stores in June, well ahead of our Oct. 27 date.

Here’s to (me being really excited about) getting 100 of exactly the same card!


Don’t Forget! Support the name change!

As an update, we’ve gotten back our state background checks back and are now just waiting on the Feds. Come on, USA! Once that’s done, we’ll starting moving forward with the actual paperwork filing.

Any amount is helpful, we’ve got until the end of July to raise the money…we’re still sitting at $237 which gets us two sets of fingerprints a piece, covers the cost of the federal and state background checks for both of us and gives us money for one of the name change application. We’re still looking to cover the other $120 for the second application and some money for dinner… We’re looking to raise $375 – only $138 to go!

    • Yup. They only have the two designs featured in the photo, but they do in fact exist. My local Target had them on a lower shelf just mixed in with the others. I was actually more excited than I thought I would be to have to search a bit to find them.
