I don’t have addresses for more than half our wedding guest list. This, despite the fact that Collin and I both had sisters marry in 2009. Stop moving, everyone!
And seriously, what’s so hard about saying who you are dating on Facebook? I KNOW, I KNOW. I know exactly what is so hard about it. But it’s not my fault I was practically engaged by time I joined Facebook. And I can’t address an invitation to “Mary Sue Noncommittal and It’s Complicated.”
Meanwhile, Facebook. Don’t you think you should give everyone a place to indicate if they happen to be a judge or a doctor or have some other status where I would be mortified if I accidentally sent them an invitation that says “Mr.” or “Ms.”? It would be just another form of bragging, which is essentially the raison d’être of Facebook, no? (To be fair, I didn’t see The Social Network.)
Also, how do I decide who gets a “Mrs.” on her invitation? I generally hate that title, but far be it from me to impose a “Ms.” on a nice married lady who embraces the R in the middle. Is it safe to “Mrs.” every married woman who took her husband’s name and is not a doctor or a judge? Or is that making assumptions I shouldn’t make?
In short, there are only a few short weeks until my save-the-date deadline, and my Excel spreadsheet is a sea of blank cells, and my etiquette needs a re-sharpening. HALP.
