A Chicago couple's wedding invitation went viral on Wednesday, briefly surpassing the royal baby in popularity.
"My phone really started blowing up after it got put on MSN," Katie Kerr, of Chicago, Ill., told ABC station WLS-TV. "It was even ahead of the royal baby."
She and her husband, Chris Sabino, made guests check off their reason for attending or not attending their wedding in a clever RSVP.
Guests who planned on attending their wedding could say they were coming because "Two words: Free. Booze," or "I'm in your wedding party, idiot. Wait, is this optional?"
And guests who expressed their regrets did so because "I'm lame. On a scale of one to ten, my lameness would be in the 9.5 to 9.8 range."
"We wanted to have fun with it," Kerr said.

Yes! I will be attending because…
-Two words: Free. Booze.
-I’m in your wedding party, idiot. Wait, is this optional?
-This is my only chance to play golf at Medinah & I plan on sneaking off during the toasts to play a quick round.
-I would never dream of missing it! After all, knowing the Kerr/Sabino Family (circle one) this should be a night full of must-see fun/drama/ridiculous dancing (circle one)!
No. I won’t be attending because…
-I’m lame. On a scale of one to ten, my lameness would be in the 9.5 to 9.8 range.
-I’ll be watching the Cubs win the World Series
Edit: these options are meant to be circumstances that could actually happen.
-I will be visiting, um, Yemen. Yeah, Yemen. But it’s a secret trip. So if you ask anyone, they will have no clue what you’re talking about.
-I don’t know who you people are or how you got my address. Leave me alone! (Oh, and congrats on your upcoming nuptials.)
