i stayed up unnecessarily late last night to make these things. i have one glass of wine and i start channeling PostSecret, i guess.
weddings are weird, facebook is weird, and i am especially weird for dwelling on my courtesy messages for so long. this is based on ~real events~ where i sat, began typing, and immediately backspaced for about ten minutes trying to say “best wishes” to a new bride. (after the first one, i couldn’t even try again, and just shamefully examined the next several brides’ photos.)
'best wishes' or 'congratulations' (sorry, emily) feels like a flat thing to say, but all my further thoughts on the matter are kind of unsharable. if there's no way to be cheeky (and weddings don't exactly invite cheekiness), facebook is useless to me. why can't i just give newlyweds a $15 iTunes gift card to show them i care, facebook?
maybe this gets easier closer to thirty.
