    In my opinion, then they get a set number of guests to invite.

    700?!?!?! Just...wut.

    true story, someone showed up to my wedding in jorts and a denim shirt with cut-off sleeves. It was definitely not a jorts wedding, lol.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    My wife actually gave me the thumbs up to wear the shorts. And the groom of the wedding said I could wear shorts too.

    I'm using my CF buddies to confirm this choice because I'm wavering on my decision. I'm like 90% sure I'm going to wear the shorts but some of you guys are making me rethink the shorts idea.

    So let's switch it up completely (by the way, I murder the **** out of baby Hitler in a heartbeat).

    Let's say you have two buttons. You HAVE to push one. If you push the one on the left, someone you love dies. Parent, spouse, child, whatever have you. Someone very close that you love deeply. If you push the one on the right, ten people you've never met in your life die. Which button do you push?

    I went to a wedding this weekend. Pretty much everyone who went to the ceremony was dressed appropriately, but at the reception a large group of dudes in shorts and t-shirts showed up.

    At what wedding is it cool to show up with a backwards flat brimmed hat on? Seriously? And this was a direct relation to the bride.

Hitler comes in and tells them to blame it on the Jews, Gypsies, and anyone else not pure Aryan. I honestly think he could have said to blame just about anyone and they would have been pulled into it because they wanted to believe anything in that regard. Where's Erik to comment when you need him?

    So I think with or without a Hitler, there would have been a WWII. I mean, he wasn't really doing anything to stir up China and Japan. They were doing that all by themselves.
    I remember having a friend read the first few chapters of Hitler's Mein Kampf They had to stop because it made sense so far.

    The dude really did have a talent for motivating people. Effed up as it may have been.

    Wasn't this the basis for a movie? Next would be the Purge. Participate or not?

    I would never have to give that permission because hubby never EVER wears shorts in public. He's a redhead (or was...now it's mostly grey) with a redhead's complexion. His legs seriously glow in the dark. He's the only guy I've ever known who wears jeans when he waterskis...

    I'm oldfashioned on the shorts at a wedding thing. But my first thought about the bolded phrase above was "I hope he checked with the bride first".

    Without hesitation: the one on the right.

    It's kind of a dumb premise, I mean, thousands of people die every day without me pushing a button.

It has been my experience that women (specifically the bride & her mother & future mother in law) are more concerned about every little detail of a wedding than the men are.
    I've talked it over with some ladies here where I work and their first question for me is, "Are you in the wedding?" I am not in the wedding, I am just a guest.

    My follow up question for you then is, will the bride/bride's mother/bride's mother-in-law care that a guest is wearing shorts? That would be a pretty tiny detail to be worried about.
