Wedding Invitation

I got a wedding invitation from a college friend of mine today.  Which is awesome and I am honestly really excited for him, so don’t take the rest of this post as anything other than my sense of humor.

In the invitation he writes:

"Hey everyone!  I'm getting married to the love of my life, (named removed), and everyone is welcome to come!  I know some of you won't be able to make it, but I wanted you to know anyway.  God bless!”

Seriously this a great man.  A solid man of integrity and wisdom.  But I had to laugh at the phrase, “…getting married to the love of my life…”

I’m trying to imagine a different scenario.

“Hey everyone!  I’m getting married.  Not the to the love of my life, but she’ll do.  Quite frankly I’ve decided to just settle seeing as it’s taken this long to find someone even worth settling for.  But I would really like you celebrate this union.  I am going to make an honest go of it and will need you as a reminder that I’m choosing to love this girl.  I know that some of you can’t make it, so just mail your gift in.  We are registered at Best Buy, Sharper Image and Spencer’s Gifts.”

What do you think?

haha, that's pretty funny. Sharper Image is gonzo though. They filed for bankruptcy.

I'm sure the later is what he meant though...

..."someone even worth settling for..." haha

Who knows, we might have more successful marriages if people went into it with their eyes wide open, a make it work kind of attitude, and lots of presents!
