That’s right, last week I got an invite wedding #3 this summer. I was incorrect in my previous tweet, this was invite #3 not four. I may have to tape them to my wall so I can keep track of which ones I’m declining and which ones I’m able to attend. I mean, traveling to three weddings, plus gifts, gas and possible hotel adds up!
It’s still hard to believe I’m at the point where friends are getting married and some even are having babies. WTF is there something in the water?
Well if it is, I filter my water so I won’t catch it. In fact, I have a picture at my desk that says “No Way Baby,” I think my uterus status for babies is pretty clear.
But anyhow, back to weddings.
I had a sick feeling I was going to be invited to the latest wedding, set to take place a week before my big birthday. Awesome. But it’s in Madison so I can pick up some cheese curds before the reception.
Don’t mock the cheese curds, that stuff is awesome.
And while I had a momentary twinge of, well maybe I won’t go, I opened up the invite and it was SO gorgeous, OMG. Definitely one of the nicer invites I’ve received lately.
The bride/groom are two good friends from college and between the Internet and me, the groom is my “one that got away.” But I’m thrilled for both of them, honestly.
Plus, the reception is bound to be open bar and crawling with the groom’s former frat boys.
And let’s be honest the math is pretty simple:
Ex-frat boys + wedding + open bar = someone for Jess to make out with
I like those odds. And to quote my buddy, they’ll be “clean” so they’re my kind of guy. I smell the opportunity for a tie to be tied around my waist, bosom or head.
Am I the only one getting slammed with wedding invites this year? How many do you have or what is the busiest wedding summer that you’ve ever had? Do you say yes to all of them?
