Forget Kate and Prince William -- the truly royal wedding should have been the one enjoyed by Tiare Kruse and her spouse, which took their friendly Apple vs. Google rivalry to a whole new level, complete with a wedding cake topped by the iPhone and that loveable Android.
Bride-to-be Tiare Kruse saw the recent story about the Apple fan who proposed to his girlfriend with an iPad and decided to up the ante. You see, Tiare is a self-professed “huge Apple fan,” having switched from the PC after getting her hands on her first iPhone. But as you may have guessed, her fiancée fancies another mobile OS.
“Unfortunately, my fiancée has never made the switch, and we have always had the competitive, joking fights of whose phone/computer is better than the others,” Tiare explains.
“Last year when he proposed, we were joking around about how it would be funny if we put an iPhone and a Droid on the top of our wedding cake instead of the traditional bride and groom doll figures,” Tiare continues. “After talking about it some more, we realized how cool it would be to have a non-traditional yet formal wedding cake that we loved. I immediately contacted our cake designer and sure enough, she could make that design!”
You can probably guess where the lovebirds went next -- the iPhone vs. Droid cake soon became the entire theme of their Hawaiian wedding.
“From the cake, to having the person marrying us use an iPad to read off of, to us reading our vows off our phones, to a USB cord wrapped around the floral decor of the centerpiece, to the program designs, the invitation designs, the engagement photos, favors, prizes… literally almost everything about our wedding is themed around it,” Tiare elaborates.
Happily, the wedding planning is going great, complete with a few “traditional elements” such as the formal dinner, and the couple is looking forward to wedded bliss. If only Apple and Google themselves could enjoy such harmony again!
