Say you’ve been invited to a wedding. It’s in California. You’ll be thrilled to attend, have fun in the sun, celebrate with the bride and groom. You might even get to meet someone famous, since the groom is Steve Lavin, the former men’s basketball coach at UCLA. You’re looking forward to it. Then you get this e-mail:
Update from the Jarou/Lavin wedding headquarters in Newport Beach.
Unexpectedly we have received a stunning 95% RSVP on sent out wedding invitations. As a result, our wedding guest list has far exceeded the maximum capacity for a traditional ceremony and reception at The Montage Resort.
After giving serious consideration to alternative plans we have decided the best option at this late stage is to head to Europe to create a magical wedding day.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconveniences this change in our wedding plans may have caused you.
We are sorry that we will not be able to share our big day with family and friends. We will be sure to send you photos of our wedding upon our return from Europe.
Please confirm that you received this email.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
Steve & Mary
Hmm. You invited people to your wedding and then were surprised when they actually decided to come, so you decided to ditch them and head for Europe. Sure, they’ll be satisfied with photos . . .
