All of it is cute except the “last chance to back out.” I just hate that kind of joke. The rest of it is cute, but that just craps all over the cuteness. It takes it from quirky to a big joke.

@Tangled:  I agree, I don’t like those types of jokes, the anti-marriage/anti-wife sentiment that’s all over popular culture just makes me sad.

I like everything else though, and I like your first invitation style the best 🙂

I just don’t think it’s funny. It seems mean-spirited. If marriage is so bad, then don’t do it. It just ruins the moment. And the moment doesn’t have to be super sappy if you don’t want it to be, but it doesn’t have to be completely destroyed, either.

@Tangled:  I agree.

I also think the reading & this on the invites “Boy was slow, but finally came to his senses and fell in love too.” is a little tuned towards the negative, but I see the point and if you like it, go for it!

I love the last writing for your invitations instead of the one in the image, it looks way cute! And about the train, I like trains but if you don’t want to wear any, then don’t! Idk why do moms take trains so seriously lol.. The sign I think it’s funny, but personally I wouldn’t use it cause i think it’ll take the ‘cuteness and romanticism’ off your ceremony… (:

I love the reading!  I think that it is sweet!  I feel like the flower girl sign depends on how small/close the guest list is.  For a few really close friends it could work, but if its quite a few people who don’t know your personality, it could seem a bit to odd for the seriousness of the ceremony.  Just my opinion though. 

I love quirky touches.  I REALLY want to do fried pickles for an app, even though everyone says thay aren’t classy enough.  I’m like “whatever, they are tasty and my faves!”

@Pokemon:  I think it just introduces the idea that it even crossed one of y’all’s minds that you can/would/might back out. Your guests aren’t thinking your guy is making last minute decisions, they’re thinking he can’t wait to see you walk down that aisle, so saying “last chance!” is like a cue that he needs to hurry up and decide asap, which wouldn’t have crossed your guests’ minds. Yes it’s also kind of funny, but I wouldn’t find it appropriate for my own wedding. If you like it, go for it.

ETA: I also agree with a PP who mentioned this marriage/wives-are-bad mentality, like marriage is something to be ran from rather than embraced.

I like all the things but the “Backing Out” Part. He WANTS to marry you, and I don’t think a wedding is the place to suggest running away. I feel like if he is already standing at the alter he made his choice and if I were a guest I would wonder what was up in your relationship that he needs a chance to back out, AT the wedding?? It just doesn’t sit right as something for the guests all to see.

@Pokemon:  Well I’m not really a mushy, lovey person either, so I see where you’re coming from – I just think there’s other ways to make it “fun” without making fun of the ceremony, which is typically a pretty serious deal and all. If you trust your guest list to not think it’s in poor taste and you want to do it, by all means, I just think a lot of people would find it to be less funny and more awkward.
