Daughter Getting Married Saturday!

OK, well it's been a hairy ride getting ready for this. She wanted to get married in our front yard, and also upon her request, I just cancelled the tent. She said she didn't want to get married in a tent (really a big ass canopy) unless she had to, and to cancel it. 3 weather services predict no chance of rain, but I don't know. Of course, I'm out the reservation costs, but that still saves me a few $$$$$.

The latest kicker was got a call from our caterer Sunday a.m., 6 days before the wedding saying the owner passed away suddenly from a heart attack, and they were going to have to cancel. Needless to say Sunday was not a happy day for me, but by end of day, and with the help of some referreals from friends, I found a company to take over!

Pray for good weather for us folks!

Here's everything your need for your daughter's wedding:

1. A reverend
2. Daughter
3. Daughter's fiance
4. Close family
5. Beer

What else could you possibly need?

When I got married 13 years ago, my father-in-law to be pulled me aside as soon as we told her parents. He said convince her to get married in Vegas. He would pay for the trip out there $2400, the cost of the wedding $300, and give us $5000.00. Fortunately my wife to be liked the idea. It was just so much less hassle.

Man the caterer canceling on 6 days notice is horrible. Glad you got them replaced, that was good luck right there.

My fingers are crossed and there will be one more prayer headed up for no rain.

For a fall wedding, a couple of 6 foot subs and a big screen TV?

Rukee,
I can't say about the Judge's sons wedding, but that isn't always true. My father-in-law was so friggin cheep, I paid for our reception of 100 people and every other cost involved with getting married. The man paid for 2 daughters to become doctors, but my wife wasn't interested so he wasn't opening his wallet beyond education. Each to their own.... I have no regrets and with having a son. I get spared to repeat the experience (I hope).

Noz,
Hope its fair sky's and a blast for all that attend!

I agree... I got off cheap....The rehearsal dinner for 2500.000 and 800 clams for a cake plus some other $$ I "donated." Around 3800 for my divvy.......I still am thanking God I didn't have any girls.
But alas, it's still one less mouth to feed. (most of the time)
