Analyzing an evite. Despite evites' air of informality, they are often carefully constructed by party planners and thus can be rich with meaning. Nevertheless, it is easy to overthink an evite, whether by incorrectly ascribing intentionality to hastily written remarks, attempting to divine patterns from the ebb & flow of responses, or forgetting to ask yourself the simple question, "Will I have fun?"
No response prompts more evite exegesis than "+ 1 guest."
