Gay Weddings

What's the best wedding gift you received?

Hi everyone,

I am invited to the wedding of two female friends, both of whom I adore, but don't know super well (we met through mutual friends but live in different states, so most of our interactions are online).  I want to get them something really nice, and while I know it doesn't have to be anything specific to their being gay, I also want to acknowledge their joy (and triumph!) at fiinally being able to get married. Am I making sense? I'm not saying "Hey, what's a great lesbian wedding present?!" but if any of you got a gift that you found very meaningful to you, I would love to hear about it. One friend is giving them a copy of their wedding invitation framed in stained glass, another is giving them a custom painting... they are both very bright and creative, so I don't want to just get them a place setting. Know what I mean?

Thanks for any help!

    Some of our favorite gifts involved people doing something for the wedding.  One friend made our guestbook.  Another ran a photo booth for us.  A third did the video of our ceremony. A fourth played a special song, traditional in his family for weddings. Others helped with set-up and clean-up at the reception.  These gifts were especially meaningful because they showed us that our friends were celebrating with us.

    What about taking all the photos from the wedding and having them made into a wedding video with music. You could go so far as to have a disposable camera at every table that you have developed after the wedding. Or designate a few people that you know have digital cameras to take lots of pictures of everything.
