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 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

            Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

            You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

            1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

            It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

            Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

            2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

            If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

            3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

            If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

            4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

            A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

            5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

            If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

            Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
