A couple of years ago, (when I was part of a couple) we were friends with another couple and the woman was an attorney. She was very pretentious and would make snide comments about how none of her boyfriend's friends owned property (she lived in an apartment and he lived at home) and how because I worked at Neiman Marcus, everyone there must be 'classy' (incorrect assumption.) The couple eventually got engaged and when we received the invitation it looked like this:
blah blah blah would like to invite you to the wedding of her daughter
Attorney Bride's Name
No, her name is not attorney, she put her JOB TITLE in front of her name on her wedding invitation. I still have the actual invitation but I couldn't figure out how to blur the names, but it was too good to throw out. I'm thinking that if you're inviting someone to your wedding, don't they already know what your occupation is? Notice she didn't put the fiance's job title on the invite, I guess his title wasn't important enough. Fast forward to the week of the wedding and my boyfriend at the time was told that because he didn't RSVP (he was in the wedding party and had been to all wedding related events) that they didn't realize that I was attending and that I could come but I would need to bring money to pay for my meal at the reception. Bring.money.to.pay.for.my.meal.at.the.reception.
There was some serious @#%^#$#$#(&+*** #who does that, is she serious, I thought she was so highfalutin words being said that day. Needless to say I didn't attend.

Point being, you can dress up Kool-Aid any way you want to, add lemon slices, mix it with other flavors, add ginger ale, but it's all still country, sugary, no good for you, 20 cents a pack Kool Aid. Full discolsure, I love Kool Aid. I just bought some the other day. But I don't pretend that I'm too good for Kool Aid....
So as much as you want to be the "Too Good For You" City Mouse, just be okay with embracing your undeniable Country Mouse. It's ok...I promise
