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 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?

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 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.
