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.

          5. The invite which asks for the harsh truth

            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.”

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

            The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

            The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

            Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

            Advertising

            Review Your Past Flow

            Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

            Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

            Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

            Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

            Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

            Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

            Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

            We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

            Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
