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.”

            8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

            8 Benefits of a Minimalist Lifestyle That Get You to Live With Less

            Minimalism is a way to put a stop to the gluttony of the world around us. It’s the opposite of every advertisement we see plastered on the radio and TV. We live in a society that prides itself on the accumulation of stuff; we eat up consumerism, material possessions, clutter, debt, distractions and noise.

            What we don’t seem to have is any meaning left in our world.

            By adopting a minimalist lifestyle, you can throw out what you don’t need in order to focus on what you do need.

            I know first hand how little we actually need to survive. I was fortunate enough to live in a van for four months while traveling throughout Australia. This experience taught me valuable lessons about what really matters and how little we really need all this stuff we surround ourselves with.

            Less is more.

            Living a minimalist lifestyle is reducing.There are a few obvious benefits of minimalism such as less cleaning and stress, a more organized household and more money to be found, but there are also a few deep, life-changing benefits.

            What we don’t usually realize is that when we reduce, we reduce a lot more than just stuff.

            Consider just some of the benefits of living with fewer possessions:

            1. Create Room for What’s Important

            When we purge our junk drawers and closets we create space and peace. We lose that claustrophobic feeling and we can actually breathe again. Create the room to fill up our lives with meaning instead of stuff.

            2. More Freedom

            The accumulation of stuff is like an anchor, it ties us down. We are always terrified of losing all our ‘stuff’. Let it go and you will experience a freedom like never before: a freedom from greed, debt, obsession and overworking.

            3. Focus on Health and Hobbies

            When you spend less time at Home Depot trying unsuccessfully to keep up with the Joneses, you create an opening to do the things you love, things that you never seem to have time for.

            Everyone is always saying they don’t have enough time, but how many people really stop and look at what they are spending their time doing?

            You could be enjoying a day with your kids, hitting up the gym, practicing yoga, reading a good book or traveling. Whatever it is that you love you could be doing, but instead you are stuck at Sears shopping for more stuff.

            4. Less Focus on Material Possessions

            All the stuff we surround ourselves with is merely a distraction, we are filling a void. Money can’t buy happiness, but it can buy comfort. After the initial comfort is satisfied, that’s where our obsession with money should end.

            We are bombarded by the media presenting promises of happiness through materialistic measures. It’s no wonder we struggle everyday. Resist those urges. It’s an empty path, it won’t make you happy.

            Advertising

            It’s hard not to get roped into the consumerism trap. I need constant reminders that it’s a false sense of happiness. I enjoy stuff, but I also recognize that I don’t need it.

            5. More Peace of Mind

            When we cling onto material possessions we create stress because we are always afraid of losing these things. By simplifying your life you can lose your attachment to these things and ultimately create a calm, peaceful mind.

            The less things you have to worry about, the more peace you have, and it’s as simple as that.

            6. More Happiness

            When de-cluttering your life, happiness naturally comes because you gravitate towards the things that matter most. You see clearly the false promises in all the clutter, it’s like a broken shield against life’s true essence.

            You will also find happiness in being more efficient, you will find concentration by having refocused your priorities, you will find joy by enjoying slowing down.

            7. Less Fear of Failure

            When you look at Buddhist monks, they have no fear, and they have no fear because they don’t have anything to lose.

            In whatever you wish to pursue doing you can excel, if you aren’t plagued with the fear of losing all your worldly possessions. Obviously you need to take the appropriate steps to put a roof over your head, but also know that you have little to fear except fear itself.

            8. More Confidence

            The entire minimalist lifestyle promotes individuality and self reliance. This will make you more confident in your pursuit of happiness.
