This doesn't exactly make me think wedding.

Maybe if Uncle Sam was wearing a wedding gown (with a full veil and tiara!). Also, it seems that the H in THE is darker than the rest of the letters?

No, it's not very "wedding" but I think it's funny = ) However, a couple things . . . the top line should be like the rest of the text below and it would be nice if there were some color to ol' Uncle Sam.

quick question... since the uncle sam image is from someone else's artwork... is there any copyright issue by using the image?

ha ha..Good idea to invite in wedding...!

I think this might be a bit funnier if we weren't in war. Comparing the union of a couple for life to an old army recruitment poster doesn't seem to mesh, considering army spouses are often without their enlisted spouses during war.

Oh dear. Well, I think if a couple was really offended by this, they simply wouldn't buy it. Others, however, might see just the humor and not the politics. To answer the copyright question - I'm not positive, but since the image is now in the Public Domain, I believe that it is free for commercial use.

Not sure on the copyright issues, but the artist's last name is Flagg (I forgot his first name from my History of Illustrators course) but yeah, I'd just double check the copyright ish. But yes, awesome as per usual for Hoodoos :D
