...and my baby will be married! king

Her fincee called and asked me to lunch Friday. Said he wanted to go to the Blue Crew Tavern for lunch (the Colts' fan club bar & grill). We had talked about it , so I didn't think much about it...

Then he asked for my permission to marry her... ohshit

12 months... 52 weeks... 365 days... $20,000??? I dunno... how much does a wedding cost these days??? Doesn't matter... I obviously have no say it the matter... its a mom/daughter thing, you see.

You guys need to step up... I got no assistance for the Super Bowl trip... now this!

$500 donation gets you hors d'ouerves...
$750 - above plus food...
$1000 - you get the full deal plus the open bar! cheerstoyou

Step right up!

(guess I had better get that dive trip in while I still have a buck left in the bank...)

You could have told the young man "Nah, I don't see you as my future son-in-law. Sorry!" and saved a bundle of money.

20 grand sounds about right for a middle-of-the road wedding.

Hey Kurt....

Is she the only daughter? For your sake I hope so. I have two that I'm going to have to give away someday. I told them both they have to get married on the same damn day so I can afford it!!!!

I think Blue is right.... 20 Grand sounds about right.

I can give you one clue, Kurt...go easy on the flowers!!! It's unbelievable what they charge for those things.

My daughter's wedding (8 years ago) set me back about 14 grand. Can't remember how many people we had at the reception but it was around 150. Used a disk jockey and I ended up writing him an extra check to hang around for a few more hours.

Open bar, flowers, gown (yikes! I forgot about the cost of that gown!), limo, entertainment, food for a few hundred people, etc. An easy 20 grand these days. Be sure to have your check book handy on the big day.

Congratulations!

Congrats Kurt.

Call me different, but I gave my daughter an option..12,000 for a day of partying, that hell half of the folks wont remember, or 12,000 for a down payment on a home, and she can just have a small church wedding.

She took the down payment.

You poor old Dads!


I couldn't handle having a daughter unless she just stayed about 5yrs old so I didn't have to deal with how guys start going after the girls as soon as it comes to their pea brains.

She would have to be home schooled and some how never think about guys.

(of course never turn into a Rosie O'Lesbo either)


Of course that's not how things work so you all will be father-in-laws and hope for the best and close your eyes half the time dammit

Two words Kurt.............Court House.


Yeah I know it is suppose to be one word.lol


But heres to the bride and groom cheerstoyou

Not sure what it cost the wife and I. I`m awfully sure it was over 10k.
We had a very big wedding all done in a Bears theme. Navy blue suit with a Bears tie so were the groomsmen.
it was really cool because two of the groomsmen were Packer fans booya

Took the ol`garter off to the tune of "The Superbowl Shuffle"
Tried to get it for the wedding march,but the little woman wouldn`t go for it.lol(I wonder why).
Asked all the the invitees to wear their team colors,some abliged,some didn`t.But all in all it was cool.
