Parents, Please Don’t Assume Your Kids Are Invited To The Wedding

The rules of wedding etiquette are constantly changing, making it difficult for modern brides, grooms and guests to find up-to-date and correct information. That’s why we launched #MannersMondays, a series in which we ask our followers on Facebook to submit their most burning etiquette-related questions. Then, with the help of our team of etiquette experts, we get you the right answers to your biggest Big Day dilemmas. Check out this week’s question below!

“What do I do about parents RSVPing with their children when it was specifically stated that only the parents are invited?” ― Travis 

Amber HarrisonWedding Papers Divas‘ resident etiquette expert — is here to help us answer this week’s question. Here’s what she had to say:

Unfortunately this is a situation that happens too often. As a refresher, the best way to clearly communicate which family members are invited is by listing each of their names on the invitation envelope. The omission of a child’s name means that it is an adult-only affair.

There are plenty of times when this subtle message goes unrecognized. If this happens to you, the best course of action is a phone call, and the sooner the better. While it might be uncomfortable for you, don’t put this one off. The longer you wait, the harder it will be for the parents to accept – and to make arrangements for childcare! Call these guests and explain candidly that the invitation was just meant for them. Once you’ve made a decision about kids at your wedding, stick with it. Exceptions will only cause questions and hurt feelings from other guests.

Why I Invited Marc Maron to Speak at Princeton University

Several months ago, I decided to invite the comedian Marc Maron, host of the popular podcast WTF and the star of the television show Maron, to speak at Princeton University. The popular stand-up comedian might not be the most predictable choice to deliver a lecture in our public event series. When I tweeted out that he will be speaking in McCosh 50, the same room where Albert Einstein delivered lectures about the Theory of Relativity, Maron himself seemed a little surprised, tweeting back: “Cool. No Pressure Man.” “Thanks for telling me that guy who’s running the lecture, oh man, not a lot of pressure,” he said on the October 5 podcast.

The truth is that, in my mind Maron, is a terrific and important figure who students and faculty should hear. The idea of inviting him to the university occurred to me before he announced that he was going to interview the president of the United States, a show that greatly bolstered his standing.

Besides the fact that stand-up comedy often provides some of the most insightful commentary about American culture, Maron is living proof of the great potential in modern communications technology. We have all heard the standard litany of complaints about what has resulted from the modern media world: the voices in broadcasting are increasingly shrill, quality control seems to have virtually disappeared along with tight production and editorial standards, and the hyper-fragmentation of broadcasting has made it difficult for any single voice to gain a sizable audience.

Yet since first airing in 2009, WTF has demonstrated that new technology has created important space for innovation.

Through his podcast, Maron has shown how the medium offers a type environment for conversation and discussion that was not always possible in the formal setting of traditional television and radio broadcasting. By literally conducting the interviews in his garage, Maron has convinced a huge number of guests — ranging from comedians like Robin Williams to public figures such as President Obama — to open up about their personal lives and their professional experiences in ways that have been absolutely riveting to listeners. The ease of contemporary technology helped him to create a “studio” space in which Maron nurtures a style of informal and intimate conversation that shatters the walls usually separating the listener from the show. As he told The New Yorker, “Guests sit within a history of me, artifacts from different times of my life.” Maron likens his interviews to the “ongoing conversations” that his grandfather (Grandpa Jack) had with the locals at a hardware store where he worked.

Without the large infrastructure of a network around him, podcasting also gives Maron the flexibility to move about and to interview a wide variety of guests, some of whom have proven to be extraordinarily interesting (such as a series of conversations with comedians about “borrowing” or stealing material from each other) that might otherwise not have found support in traditional broadcasting outlets. Indeed, he was able to follow his show with President Obama by interviewing comedians like Rich Vos.

Podcasts are also attracting younger listeners who are often turned off and tuned out to the traditional networks. Studies have shown that podcast audiences lean toward younger listeners, which creates an opportunity to provide quality shows to generations of Americans who are otherwise not listening. One can imagine how hosts interested in politics might take the Maron model to over political news in ways that attract disenchanted youth to this subject matter.

Part of the reason that they can do this is because podcasts embody the trend of narrowcasting that began back in the 1970s when the networks started to lose their monopoly. When shows can thrive within a certain niche and only have to appeal to certain audiences, they have the ability to refine their stylistic approach and substantive foci rather than feeling the need to do a little of everything but nothing with much depth.

Podcasts open up the constraints of time in a way that facilitates more open-ended and in-depth conversations. Podcasts can vary greatly in length. The host does not have to feel the pressure of finishing within a certain time frame imposed by commercials and radio or television airspace. The extra time, as well as the ability to go shorter, can liberate conversations to move in all sorts of directions when the host and producer don’t have to keep their eye on the clock.

So inviting Marc Maron was actually a no-brainer. Maron has done something truly spectacular with this new technological form. For those who constantly lament what each new innovation brings, they should download his app and listen to some of the exciting directions the media might take. Today, I’ll be enjoying what he has to say the old-fashioned way, sitting in my seat for his lecture right here at Princeton.

Julian E. Zelizer is the Malcolm Stevenson Forbes, Class of 1941 Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University. He is the author of The Fierce Urgency of Now: Lyndon Johnson, Congress, and the Battle for the Great Society (Penguin Press).

Bill Murray Is Cordially Invited To Washington, D.C., For A Groundhog Day Party

How hard could it be to get Bill Murray to show up to at an annual Groundhog Day celebration in the nation’s capital? Aaron DeNu says that, even with short notice, “I think we have a chance.”

DeNu launched D.C.’s now-annual tribute to the soothsaying animal two years ago. He’s hoping this year’s event will entice Murray, who starred in the classic, and profound, “Groundhog Day,” to attend.

“I think one in 100,” he tells HuffPost, putting the odds that high because Murray is out promoting a new film — “The Monuments Men” — for which he’s been undertaking some unorthodox publicity stunts, and because an exhibition relating to the movie will be opening at the Smithsonian on Feb. 7, a mere five days after the big day itself.

DeNu has convinced a handful of local businesses to donate goods and services which would make Murray’s visit more appealing: a quirky boutique hotel has offered to put him up and a bookstore/restaurant frequented by the president has offered to feed him.

In 2011 when DeNu launched the event, he originally had a more feral star in mind: a live groundhog, which he planned to call Potomac Phil. DeNu thought he’d tell people that Potomac Phil is a brother of Pennsylvania’s Punxsutawney Phil; that the two are both genetically blessed weather-rodents.

That plan eventually petered out. DeNu contacted various groups he thought might have a spare to lend out, and learned that groundhogs may be common, but this time of year they are also mostly hibernating. A stuffed groundhog, purchased from a D.C. vintage store — yet also said to be able to see its shadow, and thus to adjudge the sort of winter Washington will enjoy — has stood in a live animal’s place.

Regarding this endeavor, while DeNu doesn’t mark his chances of luring Murray as especially promising, “I’m going to keep at it,” he says. “As Bill Murray’s best friend said, ‘Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!‘”

The attempts, thus far, have mainly entailed looking for the 1-800 number on which Murray is said to check messages. GQ reported in 2010 that the actor will return calls for propositions he finds “interesting.”

Easy enough, except this time the problem is that DeNu doesn’t know, specifically, what 1-800 number to call.

“So, I’ve been on a quest to find that number,” he says. “Along the way, I’ve left some awkward messages on different 1-800 numbers that I believed to be his. I spoke into the AT&T toll free line for 30 minutes searching different names. Using search criteria such as names of characters Bill Murray has portrayed in film. And I’ve reached out to an accountant in New York that is rumored to be in contact with him. I try every day, but it seems like I’m having the same day over and over again.”

Still, it could be so easy for Murray to help DeNu make things right. “Bill can email me at DupontFestival@gmail.com,” he says, “and if he can be in Dupont Circle Park on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 7:30 a.m. it would be beautiful.”
