The long-awaited Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi wedding has taken place this weekend. As the first celebrity gay marriage, the event has come to represent more than just a simple wedding. Instead, the union between Ellen and Portia de Rossi has become an icon within the gay community.

With Lindsay Lohan's marriage to follow, the concept of gay marriage will likely become more accepted than ever before.

Implications - What particularly like about the DeGeneres/Rossi wedding is that it will most certainly move the public dialogue of gay rights forward because of their celebrity status. This iconic event will also serve to inform the fashion world and the aesthetic decisions that are available for people on their wedding day. All in all a great event.
