Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s Wedding Invitation

After Sean and Catherine’s quirky save-the-date, their wedding invitation (from Smitten on Paper) seems pretty tame, at least as far as design goes. For the invitation wording the couple went the complete opposite of traditional. Here’s the wording:

Together with their families

Sean Thomas Lowe

Will marry his best friend

Catherine Ligaya Mejia Giudici

Who completely adores him

The evening of Sunday, January 26, 2014

Typically an invitation will contain a variation on the phrases “request the honor of your presence” or “invite you to join their families in celebrating their marriage.” The wording serves as more an announcement than invitation because there’s nothing to let guests know they’re being asked to attend! Another way their wording strays from tradition is that the bride’s name doesn’t appear first.

For the RSVP Sean and Catherine didn’t stick to standard wording either. Instead the options were “Can’t wait,” or “Has something more important to attend than celebrating the union of Sean & Catherine.” We get that it’s meant to be funny (the couple’s known for their sense of humor), but it’s possible that friends and family who can’t attend already feel bad and this might make them feel worse!

We’re not quite sure what to think about this invitation, so tell us what you think in the poll below!
