Injecting Humor into a Wedding


I love when couples start with who they are and make a wedding from there.

I just received an invite in the mail that included the following response card:

__ Gladly attend
__ Regretfully decline
__ Regretfully attend
__ Enthusiastically decline
__ Will decline to respond but ultimately attend
__ Think you are just trying to wrest a gift out of me
__ Other__________________________

Matt and I shared a good laugh. Hoss just looked at us and wondered what was so funny.

You are right! I asked for their permission before using it and then tweaked it just a little.
I'm waiting to hear just how the older generation took it! Hopefully I won't have offended anyone. And if I have then they really don't know me that well. LOL!

Of course you can use it! Let us know if you get any funny responses.

Good luck with your wedding, Carla, and we wish you all the best in your marriage.

-Charles and Carrie

Downright awesome! We *considered* something to that effect, but figured my parents would flip (turns out, they chose to flip out anyway. We didn't state that Mr. and Mrs. John Smith were hosting the event/giving away their daughter, because we just not that sort of couple).

Anyway, we chose two other cute options:
__ wouldn't miss it for the world :)
__ will be missing out on all the fun :(

It lead us to talking a bit about how people reacted when we got engaged--which for the most part was positive. His sister said the most bizarre thing, however: "I have to wash my hair" (she then proceeded to go and do exactly that). We considered using that, but then realized it'd be an inside joke betwen five of the fifty guests.

Good luck indeed, Carla! And way to be gutsy!

I love it! We REALLY wanted to do something like this, but our online RSVP wasn't customizable. Oh well. We'll live vicariously!

I gave you an award, which you can check out here: http://amindfulbride.blogspot.com/2009/03/award-for-me.html

Happy Thursday!

I think I've also seen one where one of the options was something like "will attend if there is an open bar" and her old teacher RSVP'ed as that one!

We used the following, and so far it sounds like our guests have been amused by it! Not sure where it originated, but I saw it on the Indiebride.com forums.

____ Will attend with bells on
____ Will attend, free of bells
____ Will attend, undecided on bells
____ Will not attend, heard there will be people wearing bells
____ Will not attend, regardless of bell controversy

Okay, that's Officially Awesome. I need to go re-design our rsvp thingy asap!

carboniferous said...

Nicole. You are my heroine! Both kinds, yes.

I'm soooo using this. If someone finds it insulting, maybe they won't come. Isn't the invitation supposed to give a hint to what's to come at the party? The only concern that I would have is that my party won't live up to the promise of the invitation... although there will be a photo booth and mustaches...

Sara,
I just printed my RSVP postcards this weekend with good friends. My fiance and I are using a Mad Lib style fill-in-the-blank on one side and an empty cartoon word bubble on the other side.

When I was looking around and saw similar ideas they made me smile. I love getting mail and I can't wait to see what people have to say! Hopefully they'll laugh and will be creative.
