Say "No Way" to Novites

This morning I am seriously disgusted. CBS Philly reported that a new trend in wedding invitations is to send a "Novite" - a note telling people NOT to expect a wedding invitation from you. It's the anti-Save the Date.

As I read the title of the article, I was hoping it was a clever new way to tell people you'd eloped. Something sensationalized to get readers to click into the article. No. Such. Luck.

The apparent defense of this appalling behavior is that your Facebook friends might see an update in your status, announcing you're getting married, and expect an invitation. However, as we all know, we're in a recession. Times are tight & not everyone can be invited to your big day. Couples are sending emails (?!?!?!?!?!?!) or in some cases cards to tell friends or family not to expect an invitation.

Social media does not excuse poor taste or bad behavior. Please promise me that none of you will send out something as tasteless as this. Never ever!! Promise!!!
