Were you invited to former UCLA basketball coach Steve Lavin's wedding? If so this post has special meaning for you although you've probably already received the email reprinted from LA Observed below. If not, just sit back and have a laugh at the expense of anyone who might have made travel plans and carved out some time in their lives to attend a wedding someone asked them to attend.
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
The wedding was set for August 17th so this probably ends up fucking up some people's summers which doesn't really irritate us but probably pisses them off a good deal. And wow, the chance to look at pictures from a wedding you didn't attend! That's like a dream come true.
