The date has been set
Our wedding is fast approaching
You better be excited
At least that’s what we’re hoping

A journey it has been
Planning and deciding
On venues, colors, caterers, food,
Photographers and lighting

Lucky for you dear guest
All that’s up to you
Is if you plan to come
And one more thing or two…

We ask you look presentable
This ain’t no hick affair
Even though it’s in the boonies
Don’t mean no combed up hair

Another thing we ask
Is if you plan to bring
A wedding gift for us
That’s fine, but here’s the thing…

It’ll probably get lost
In a storage box somewhere
As we will be in Europe
Travelling without a care

So how to put this lightly
Where do we begin?
A contribution toward our future
Would be the greatest thing!
