Getting Fit for the wedding

I know that everyone is concerned about "getting fit" for the wedding, but ladies this is getting ridiculous!
I have also noticed that is much more important for the ladies, especially "The Bride" than it is for the guys, Groom included.
No, I am not talking about going to the gym, watching the diet or long runs on the beach.
I am talking about
"The Fittings"
Every other weekend, my "engaged daughter" travels 150 miles round trip for yet another fitting with her wedding gown seamstress!
Yeesh, how big a deal can this be?
In "Gray's Anatomy" Lizzy just slipped on Meredith's gown and marched off down the aisle.
Looked Okay To Me!
I didn't see 20 trips to the lady that can't talk right because she has pins in her mouth!
In quiet contrast, the men (Groom Included) stop off at "The Men's Warehouse" one time for a 2 minute measurement, pick up the tuxes 12 hours before the big event and "We Are Done."
Shiny shoes and everything!
(see prior blog for my view on the shoes)
To quote Henry Higgins (Mr. Rex Harrison) from the movie "My Fair Lady";
"Why can't a woman be more like a man?"


  1. Haha. I love that you just admitted to the world that you watch Grey's Anatomy. :)

  2. And "My Fair Lady"
    Please note, wife plus 4 daughters,

  3. Are you serious why can't a women be more like a man?? That would make life so boring!!! Good job on the blogging and that is coming from the mother of grooms!!!

  4. "Why can't a woman be more like a man?"....i guess i would not have a reason we are like men...they will find the difference in their life without us....

    Great post love this...
