Tacky Wedding Invitations

Invitation 1 - at the bottom of the actual invitation, not on the enclosed reception card (which might have been more appropriate), it says "Please don't forget to include the gift receipt!" Although I always include the receipt, to actually have this written reminder on the invitation IMO is just TACKY.
Invitation 2 - (this is to a co-worker's wedding, I guess her mother is a recovering alcoholic) at the bottom of the invitation (again, not on the enclosed reception card), it says "Alcohol will be provided, but please be discreet." Perhaps I'm not being sensitive enough, but again, this just seems tacky. If it's that big of a deal, don't have alcohol. But pointing it out is bringing mom's alcoholism to everyone's attention because people have been asking "what's this 'be discreet' bit?"
Invitation 3 - is to a potluck costume wedding. It doesn't say what type of dish to bring or what the costume "theme" is.
So let's get this straight, this couple expects their guests to provide their own food, pay for a costume (unless we have one on hand) AND bring a gift. FTR - this couple is not hurting for money. I'm sorry, but I think this is cheap. If you are trying to cut costs, provide cake and punch. Ask people to bring their favorite dish in lieu of bringing a gift. Don't ask your guests to fork out extra money for YOUR celebration.
Would you feel the same way or am I overreacting? Anyone else have tacky invitations to share?
