what's the point of this blog if not to share some of my words of wisdom?
and do i have an amazing gem of knowledge to throw down on you today.
it's called "the cellphone invitation rule" (i just made that up, it took me hours to concept), and while the title is quite literal, it's a rule that has been generally unknown to the public until today, june 9th 2009.
you can go ahead and thank me in advance, because this rule is going to blow your mind.
when a bride/groom or mother/father-to-be are planning the following festivities,
...and the time comes to put together the invite list it's a great rule of thumb to put "the cellphone invitation" rule to use.
go through your cellphone to find the friends that you are inviting to the event. if you don't have their number in one of your cellphones then THEY SHOULDN'T BE INVITED - you obviously don't talk to them enough.
think about it, if i don't know you well enough to have your phone number then there is no way in hell that you are coming to my wedding (that'll be the day, but work with me here).
you see i have some experience on this, one could possibly call me a wedding whore - i have a huge group of friends, and a huge family causing me to have a lot of events.
i swear i'm not complaining about the events, i love everyone, but when i get an invite to something from a random acquaintance (whose phone number i don't have) - a friend of a friend, i can't help but think why the hell am i invited to this and why the hell would they think i wanted to go?
being invited to a non-cellphone number wedding is almost as bad as getting an invitation to an event via your mother's house. if you don't care enough to send me an invitation at my home for the last four years, i'm not coming. (i actually wrote a whole prune of the week post about this very topic last year)
so for all of you brides-to-be who are struggling with your wedding invite list being too large consider the cellphone invitation rule as your savior. start crossing off those friends from high school that you haven't spoken to in 6 years and those coworkers from three jobs ago.
don't waste the money on the plated dinner, because they probably don't want to go anyways.
