So here is my pet peeve: "Invites" is a verb! "Invitations" is a noun!
Why do people insist on calling invitations invites? I'm seeing it all over the place, even on websites that sell invitations. Do you know that if you Google the word "invites" that Google gives you a list of places to buy invitations, and the only listings it pulls up that actually use the word correctly is the in the News section. Incredible.
Maybe I am overreacting. It probably isn't a big deal, but it does bug me to see brides writing that they've sent out their invites or asking how many invites they should purchase. And the worst part is vendors, people who are supposed to be professions, do the same thing.
It just makes me want to scream, "INVITE IS A VERB AND IT WILL NEVER BECOME A NOUN BY ADDING AN 'S' TO THE END!"
So rest assured my dear friends and family... When and if we have a party to celebrate our wedding, you will not get verb in the mail or via email inviting you. You will receive an honest to goodness noun.
Okay... I feel better.
