A Little To The Left Greetings

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

A Little To The Left Greetings was started by Sandi Timberlake, the mother of a gay son and PFLAG member, in 2008. After griping for over 15 years about not being able to find a tasteful card to send to her son and son-in-law on their anniversary and holidays, she realized that she could not be the only mom out there with the same problem. She kept saying “I could make better cards myself.” Finally her son said, “Mom, why don’t you just do it?” So she did.

The Evolution of the Wedding Invitation is Following the Evolution of the Wedding Registry

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

Hi Everybody!

My blog in today’s Huffington Post is all about how wedding invitations have gone from engraved to Evite for too many couples. But it also has a cool section about how we set up a registry for lesbian clients that allowed their guests to contribute to their fertility efforts. They got a baby as a wedding gift.  Enjoy!

And until next time, happy wedding planning from Weddings in Vieques and Weddings in Culebra!

Featured Gay Friendly Wedding Vendor: A Little to the Left Wedding Invitations, San Diego

Periodically we’ll feature one of our vendors here to let our readers know about some great people who can help you plan the perfect wedding.

Gay Friendly Wedding Vendors

A Little to the Left, San DiegoTasteful, subtle and elegant greeting cards for same-sex weddings, anniversaries and holidays.
I am the proud mother of a gay son who has been in a committed relationship for over 15 years. And for all those years I have been frustrated when looking for a greeting card for my son and son-in-law. Guess what? They didn’t exist.

Oh sure, I could find cards that were blank inside and had 2 turtles looking at each other on the front, or 2 giraffes, or whatever. And then there are always the ones with the cartoon images on the front, but I am not a “cutesy” kind of mom.

There are also the cards you can find on the web with more – um – suggestive images on the front as well. But then, I am not so much a “gutsy” kind of mom either.

So, I decided to start my own greeting card business called A Little To The Left. I call it that because my intent is that everything I do will be considered to be a “little to the left” of that which is considered to be “normal”.

My first line of cards is my Gay Friendly cards wherein I offer Wedding/Commitment Ceremony cards and Anniversary cards. As the year progressed, I offered Christmas cards, then Valentine’s Day cards and now I have Mother’s Day cards available to for the LGBT community as well as their friends and family. I will also offer Wedding Invitations and Thank You cards as customized orders.
