You've Never Seen a RSVP Like This One - It's So Honest
Weddings can be many things.
Sometimes they are a joyful day watching your two friends
get hitched, and sometimes they are a task that you really wish you didn’t have
to attend because there are much better things you could be doing… Like washing
Despite how you see a wedding, the method of RSVP is very
simple and usually totally and untruthfully polite because you couldn’t
possibly start breaking the all-important wedding guest rules.
I was so sure this would always be the way, until this
frightfully honest RSVP card was posted on Reddit by one of its recipients.
So here it is…

I have to rearrange my entire schedule

I Accept with Great
I am glad you are getting married
I want to meet 'that special someone'
I am family
I am Bringing a
They are my spouse/significant other
I love triangles!
I'm going to propose at your reception
I am Coming Without
a Date Because:
My spouse/significant other is
I desire to meet someone at your reception
I don't want to bring a date
I am Bringing
Who require their own seat

Who are imaginary
I Found this Method
of Determining Guest Numbers:
Similar to the Spanish inquisition
I gasped, I laughed, and I also slightly envied the couple
for their modern day and comical approach to such a long-standing tradition.
It’s definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved it.
How did it make you feel? Are you inspired to create such a
document, or will you stick to tradition? – And guests let me know if you’d
enjoy receiving this!
I’m off now, have to take my imaginary children to a wedding…
