We have one card for vitals - it has a line for birth, marriage, and death.  It doesn't say anything about bride/groom etc., just a place to indicate who they married.  We used the same ones for civil unions, and just drew a line through "married" and typed "civil union".  I type the cards in word and print them on plain white cards - it's much simpler.  Then if someone is born, married, and dies in the same town (that still happens) all the information is on one card.

It would not  be appropriate due to the fact that it says Civil Union at the top of the card and they are are labeled "Party A" and "Party B" . The new Civil Marriage licenses now have the labels "Applicant 1 (Bride/Groom/Spouse)" and "Applicant 2 (Bride/Groom/Spouse)". The pink and buff(?) cards would also make it more confusing as those colors are for Civil Unions only.

A new color coding system needs to be addressed with the appropriate labels on them to show the difference.
