Unique, fun invitation and rsvp wording

Hey everyone!

I'm trying to write the wording for my invitations and RSVPs, but I don't want the typical wording. We're goofy, weird, and nerdy, swear like truck drivers, and our relationship is absolutely breathtaking, but isn't exactly typical. He's in IT, I'm going into robotics/AI. We're not into the whole overly romantic wording of things, either. We are paying for the wedding ourselves, so parental names won't be on the wedding invites, etc. I've been trying to find some different ideas, and come up with some on my own, but I'm kinda stuck. There's no theme to the wedding, it's in a garden, 45-ish people, buffet, no assigned seating, tabletop games will be available to play, and it's going to be a lunch time wedding/reception. We love Doctor Who, Firefly, Downton Abbey, Star Trek, everything Marvel (especially X-Men and Deadpool), classic cars... The only thing I've actually thought of, and been excited or, is the "i will be there" like for the RSVP, incorporate "Allons-y!" as a nod to Doctor Who...

Anyone have any ideas? Bonus points if they're vulgar! lol

    I like the "Allons-y!" RSVP idea!! I've also seen "will be there in spirit" as a fun alternative to the "No" RSVP option.

    Here's a fun example of a more modern RSVP card from Minted:

    So, I don't know much about the things you referenced (boring old lady suck in the 80's here) but this is our RSVP. We're having an 80's inspired theme (if we don't wind up cancelling). We didn't want the standard RSVP accept/decline language either.

    Thanks! We've been on a roll with the 80's. 😂 Our website and envelopes have Billy Idol on them, or STD had Mr. T. "I pity the fool who misses this wedding," and then we've got Ferris Bueller and Lloyd Dobbler (the boombox scene from Say Anything) on the details card.


    We just wanted it to be fun and that sort of stuff makes us laugh, so why not?
    I say take your theme and go as far as you can with it. 😊
