Okay, I admit that I am new to this "Father of the Bride" thing, and I had better get a good handle on it pretty soon seeing that I have four beautiful daughters!
However, I am confused about this whole "Tuxedo Shoes" thing.
I have been hearing wife and daughter chatter about a lot of wedding issues, but I was concerned when I think I heard my wife reassuring my daughter that she need not be concerned about my new "wedding shoes" purchase; that I would be wearing "proper" tuxedo shoes at her wedding!
Now I realize that this wedding is about a whole lot of things, and that I am "not" included in that list, but what is the deal with these shoes!
These things look like plastic 1970's marching band shoes!
Where are the spats?
I remember wearing these things at my wedding in 1978, but I was too young and stupid to wonder why I was wearing shoes that probably were at a high school prom the weekend before!
Now that is a fine shoe! Leather uppers and "dance floor smooth" soles.
Quality leather, timeless styling and dare I say, comfort? I realize the word "comfort" and "wedding shoes" may not be used in the same sentence very often in wedding planning, but as Martha would say,
"It is a good thing."
I have no delusions about winning this battle, but hey, at least I had my say!
