Say it with a song
For many people, expressing feelings can be hard. If you're one of them, and store-bought cards and gifts don't do the job for you, give P.S. I Love You a try. The California-based production company creates personalized musical mementos that express your emotions. Songs can be made of love notes, thank-you notes, and anniversary, wedding and birthday sentiments. Each song -- professionally recorded -- includes the recipient's name and additional details pertaining to him or her, such as eye color, age and personality. For a price starting at $24.95, you get a cassette tape, with printed lyric sheet, hand-delivered to your intended in seven working days. Rush orders can be accommodated for an additional fee. To order, call (800) 725-SONG.
For weddings that involve divorced or widowed people with children, the Coleman Collection offers a ceremony that recognizes the family nature of these relationships. The cornerstone of the ceremony, easily adapted to any wedding tradition, is the presentation of the Family Medallion to each child after the couple exchanges vows. The medallion consists of three intertwined circles, two representing the marriage union and one symbolizing the importance of children within the family. The cost of the family medallion and presentation-ceremony booklet ranges from $25 to $50. To order, call (800) 237-1922.
