WATCH: Jesse Tyler Ferguson Wants You to Invite SCOTUS to Your Big Gay Wedding


Jesse Tyler Ferguson reminds us that Supreme Court justices like free cake and champagne too. And hopefully, they like equality as well.

Along with his pro-equality bow tie company, Tie the Knot, out actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson has launched a cheeky, love-filled campaign aimed at letting the nine justices of the Supreme Court know that their upcoming decision on marriage equality "affects real lives."

The Supreme Save the Date campaign asks partnered and single LGBT Americans to send the Supreme Court a "save the date" card for an upcoming wedding -- even if there are no nuptials in the near future. The cards will then be printed and delivered to the court before it rules on a consolidated case considering marriage equality in four states. That decision, which could establish the freedom to marry nationwide, is expected by the end of June.

At, users can pick a "save the date" template, then enter their name, along with their partner's name and the wedding date, then address the invite to their "favorite Justice."

Ferguson introduced the campaign in a Funny or Die video (watch it below), where the actor channels several Supreme Court justices on "an actual phone call ... that might happen in the near future."

In a pointed reflection of how court watchers hope the justices will rule, Ferguson's Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and Elena Kagan wonder why they've been swamped with Save the Dates -- prompting Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to make sense of the whole mess.

"These Save the Dates are a symbolic demonstration that we are all the same," says Ferguson's Ginsburg. "These couples are like any loving couple, who just want to be married. And they're waiting for us to make it legal. But our forefathers founded this great nation based on the belief that we are all created equal."
