Yes I will do what I am supposed to do like a good little puppet king of my domain. I was just kidding about the insert
That sounds more like you Mike, I'm such a sucker for these joke posts.
The first post, the old and crotchety one sounded more like me.

I was recently remarried and set some guidelines for our 50 person nuptials so I didn't see anything wrong with most of w3hat you had proposed. But since you were only joking I won't offer my 2 cents.
If you reconsider you can also make yourself a wedding website and include some of these handy "hints" on there. Wedding websites are all the rage these days.
FWIW, I allowed my new husband full power in the choosing his and his men's (our sons) attire and it was lovely! I did go shopping with them so it wasn't a surprise but the decision was entirely his.

Although I agree with all of your content, some of the guidelines might be taken wrong and people do tend to do what they want anyway. Here are some thoughts. Feel free to use my name and address for the donations.
RSVP REQUIRED for catering purposes. Stamped envelope enclosed, or via email at email@example.com

Something I wish I had written on all of our invitations:
"NO teddy bear shaped cookie jars will be accepted as wedding presents."
... but then, who'd have thought it was necessary?

Reminds me of the Mad Magazine cartoon in which the newlywed couple throws a wedding gift [an ugly glass container] into the garbage. Months later, an elderly aunt visits and asks them if they found the $1000 cash inside.
