5 Hilarious Wedding Invitations That Deserve A Thumbs Up

5 Hilarious Wedding Invitations That Deserve A Thumbs Up

We have all seen the traditional wedding invitation, the one with the elegant font and the special day written completely out, including the year. These invites are pretty, but also quickly forgettable. Who says there are rules on banning creatively or more importantly humor on one of the most important announcements of your life? Here are five wedding invites that will crack you up and have you wishing you were invited to what is bound to be an epic union of two kindred spirits that know how to poke a little fun at themselves.

1. The invite which regards family issues with humor

    One quick glance at this one and you might mistake it for another traditional invitation that is identical to the hundreds of others you have received over the years. On closer inspection, the cheeky nature of this invite clearly showcases a parent who blatantly disagrees with the woman his/her son will wed. Makes you kind of want to be there just to see the drama play out and see if vengeance will be served to the nameless bride who has a very public nut allergy. Or if it all, hopefully, was just a joke.

    2. The invite which offers unexpected dinner options

      This invite gets right down to one of the most crucial components of any nuptials: the dinner reception. There is nothing like enjoying forced seating, relatives on their third wine cooler or the confusing arrangement of silverware whose purpose is still quite foggy to you. At least there is hope in the actual catering, where food is usually pretty decent, especially the main course. Chicken breast? Classic choice, but a little boring, no? Pork Carnitas? Now we are talking. Children? Never tried it, but I am thinking I am too old for cannibalism and I should probably stick with the pork.

      3. The invite which gets a bit hairy

        In case you have not noticed beards are definitely making a comeback, especially with the younger 20-30 age demographic. Whatever your stance on facial hair, it is hard to disagree that this invitation made good use of a clever beard pun. Hopefully this shave was consensual for all parties involved, but judging by the fiancee’s gleeful smirk and the fiance’s look of disbelief, we can guess who planned this photo opp. Surely, she will be forgiven once her fiance is sure he can grow a full beard once more, but not before he makes a mental note to never shave with the door open again.

        4. The invite which asks the important quesions in an unconventional way

          This wedding invite covers all the bases: whether you can or cannot attend this couple’s special day, excitement level of the impending ceremony and whether or not they can expect to have house guests. If you can make it, then you are easily off the hook, but if not you better come up with a clever excuse. Being a bad dancer does not count. That is what open bars are for.

            Going through all the possible scenarios that inevitably result in having a couple of loose canons as wedding guests, this invitation leaves no room for surprises. This couple knows that invited individuals from all parts of their life come with baggage, but when you list all the possible wedding guest behaviors, it makes it less stressful, right? Or maybe the opposite. It is hard to know what will happen if you invite your free-spirited Aunt Jane who never bothers to RSVP to anything, especially important life events. Or your childhood friend who has developed resentment based on a argument you had in the third-grade over an unfair lunch transaction and has repeatedly told you that he will publicly humiliate you on your wedding day. And let us not even get started on all your friends who are supposedly “gluten-intolerant.”

            5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

            5 Simple Ways to Relieve Stress Effectively

            Everyone experiences mental stress at one time or another. Maybe you’re starting a new career, job, or business, or you feel incredibly overwhelmed between work, parenting, and your love life (or a lack of it). It could even be that you simply feel that you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it,  plus, on top of everything, nothing seems to be going the way it should!

            Yup, we all experience mental stress from time-to-time, and that’s okay as long as you have the tools, techniques and knowledge that allow you to fully relieve it once it comes.

            Here are 5 tips for relieving mental stress when it comes so you can function at your best while feeling good (and doing well) in work, love, or life:

            1. Get Rationally Optimistic

            Mental stress starts with your perception of your experiences. For instance, most people get stressed out when they perceive their reality as “being wrong” in some way. Essentially, they have a set idea of how things “should be” at any given moment, and when reality ends up being different (not even necessarily bad), they get stressed.

            This process is simply a result of perception and can be easily “fixed” by recognizing that although life might not always be going as YOU think it should, it’s still going as it should—for your own benefit.

            In fact, once you fully recognize that everything in your life ultimately happens for your own growth, progress, and development—so you can achieve your goals and dreams—your perception works in your favor. You soon process and respond to your experience of life differently, for your advantage. That’s the essence of becoming “rationally optimistic.”

            The result: no more mental stress.

            2. Unplug

            Just like you might need to unplug your computer when it starts acting all crazy, you should also “unplug” your mind.

            How on earth do you unplug your mind? Simple: just meditate.

            It isn’t nearly difficult or complicated as some people think, so, if you don’t already meditate, give it a try. Whether you meditate for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours, this is a surefire way to reduce mental stress.

            Meditation has been scientifically proven to relax your body (resulting in less mental stress), while also reducing anxiety and high blood pressure.

            3. Easy on the Caffeine

            Yes, we know, we know—everyone loves a nice java buzz, and that’s okay, but there’s a fine line between a small caffeine pick-me-up and a racing heart and mind that throws you into a frenzy of mental stress.

            Advertising

            Try giving up caffeine for a while and see how you feel. And, if that’s completely out of the question for you, at least try to minimize it. You might find that lots of your mental stress mysteriously “disappears” as your caffeine intake goes down.

            4. Attack Mental Stress Via the Back Door

            That’s right: your body and mind are part of the whole being, and are constantly influencing and affecting each other. If you’re experiencing a lot of mental stress, try to reduce it by calming your body down—a calm body equals a calmer mind.

            How do you calm your body down and reduce physical stress? A  great way to reduce physical stress (thereby reducing mental stress) is to take natural supplements that are proven to reduce stress and anxiety while lifting your mood. Three good ones to look into are kava-kava, St John’s wort, and rhodiola rosea:

            • Kava-kava is a natural plant known to have mild sedative properties, and you should be able to find it at your natural health food store or vitamin store. It’s available in capsules or liquid extract form.
            • St John’s wort is a natural flower used to treat depression. Again, it’s found at your local health store in capsules or liquid. Because it uplifts mood (enabling you to see the brighter side of all experiences) it helps relieve mental stress as well.
            • Rhodiola rosea is a natural plant shown to reduce stress and uplift mood, and Russian athletes have been using it forever. Like the other two supplements mentioned, rhodiola rosea can be found at your natural health store in capsule or liquid form.

            While these supplements are all natural and can be very helpful for most people, always check with your health care provider first as they can cause side-effects depending on your current health situation etc.

            5. Good Old-Fashioned Exercise

            This tip has been around forever because it works. Nothing relieves mental stress like running, kickboxing—you name it. Anything super-physical will wipe out most of your mental stresses once the exercise endorphins (happy chemicals) are released into your brain.

            The result: mental stress will be gone!

            So, if you’re feeling overwhelmed or just plain stressed, try using some of the above tips. You can even print this out or save it to refer to regularly.
