Weddings today are nothing like the weddings of my youth. They were something to look forward to and have fun at…now, I’d rather get a tooth pulled without anesthesia than go to one.
What prompted this, you may ask? I recently received an invitation to my cousin’s daughter’s wedding, and if the invitation is any indication, I can wear jeans and a trucker hat and look appropriate. It’s ugly, and looks like something you’d send out for a birthday party or BBQ….and it’d still be ugly.
There’s no taste anymore. I get that people want to save money, but if you’re going to insist on printing your own invitations, learn how to line up the text so it’s not cut off at the bottom. Put a stamp on the return envelope. Make sure the RSVP has a line to put your name, and that the card actually fits in the envelope. You know, basic stuff.
Because if you can’t put a little effort in, neither can I with your gift. Enjoy that $50 gift card to Target.
