Wedding Bells!

No, not mine! My daughter and her guy of over 10 years are getting married next month.

Today, I joined them in getting our suits for the wedding. We went to “Men’s Warehouse”. It was interesting.

We (he and I) tried on several jackets, then got measured, and then discussed and chose. The man helping us told us that he had to say that they (daughter and guy) were the most decisive couple he had had (forever or in a long time).

He said that, normally, he could lay out the choices and go away for a couple of hours, come back, and they would be saying, “Well, I am still not sure…”!

I mean really?! I can see some things taking a long time, but once you have your colors out and have discussed things and chosen where to shop? Two hours? I have known couples who spent less time than that deciding to get married.

But, my daughter is and has always been rather decisive, so I shouldn’t be surprised. The final choices were very nice looking (even on me).

Afterwards, we had lunch at “5 Guys Burger and Fries”. I get a kick out of that. Perhaps, I should begin a chain store for books. Nah, I would have to call it “2803 guys 4387 girls and a Book or Two”. Wouldn’t fly…and the sign would cost a fortune!!!

    Her decisiveness will serve her well in wedding planning! There are so many choices to be made in such a short period of time, and most of it is trivial. Flowers, color schemes, decorations. The biggest decision is deciding to marry. But it’s so easy to lose sight of that in the whirl of wedding planning. Best of luck in the preparations! And congratulations, proud papa.
