- Wedding: July 2011
Simon and Sue Deloone have sent the last goat
& would like to invite you to the marriage of
Marcia and Dean!
Come share their wedding day,
dance and eat wonderful food.
I dont really get it…..
Personally I wouldnt make a reference to it being a “finally” wedding – it is still a wedding and should be taken somewhat seriously, regardless of what others feel should have happened by this point
I don’t really get it either and tbh it just seems strange :/
i get it, but i can see where people would think that it was reeeeeaaaaly weird!
I don’t understand it at all
I get it. I think it’s funny. But I’m a little warped. I don’t think most people today would get the dowery reference. Heck the people I work with didn’t even know what a harem was. It’s your wedding. If you want to have fun with it, why not?
me either. Maybe you can use a different joke?
Goat, as in like a dowry? I think we need a little backstory, please!
Well… I am a nerd and thought its funny. I got it instantly but I am not “normal”. I would say not a lot of people would get it.
i get it, but it’s out of place and a lot of your guests probably won’t understand.
the ostrich invites have a bit of the “finally” tone…it just says “at last, rob and sylvia are getting married!” http://www.weddingbee.com/2011/01/11/whimsical-wedding-invitations-4/ i think that’s a much better way to get the “finally” across and lighten the mood.
I get it, and think it’s kind of cute!
I might go with camels though… lol.
I thought the goat was like some sort of animal sacrifice joke..
i really didnt get it until I read pp about the goat representing a dowry. I guess since I dont know who simon n sue are that confused me more.. I always thought the dowry was paid by the grooms n his family rather than the brides? this invite is a bit confusing for me to be honest lol
I laughed. But I can see it go over or under some. I’d try another funny, so that more people get it.
