I am heading to Los Angeles in mid March, to attend the wedding of my oldest daughter. Should be a fun filled trip!

Sounds like a fun trip... I have a daughter getting married in July in Portland, OR, that'll be my fun trip... May get to toss bugs in the Deschutes!

Congrats! I have a question to you Fathers of the Bride. Is your future son in laws family splitting the cost of the wedding with you? The reason I ask is my son is getting married in June (the weekend of the KC show) and my wife has seen fit to split the cost. I always thought one of the few blessings of having two boys is that I wouldn't be on the hook for a wedding other than the traditional rehearsal dinner and honeymoon.
I had planned in my mind a full course dinner with cocktails, wine and generous honeymoon check but I've already spent plenty on the wedding. My wife is having a blast being in on everything but I hate spending money on anyone but myself. Shocked
P.S. I must be an old grump because going to a wedding surrounded by "friends" and relatives is anything but fun but a weekend to be endured.

Well, call me lucky. The wedding is a small outdoor affair. I am not being asked to pay for anything.

My wife and I spent as much on the rehearsal dinner as the brides family spent on the wedding.

Venue, food, live band, & decor. Good thing we only have 2 sons.

Congrats on the wedding John! And a road trip too! Sounds like a great opportunity to pack a few pipes!

It sure does. When I travel I take a couple of corn cob pipes, and some jarred goodies. I need to hit my storage unit to select my tobacco for the trip Smile

Cobs are great pipes for travelling. I tend to go simple on the tobacco choices too when I am away from home, but I think your cellar is a little more extensive...

Have a great time.
Ps, I don't want to think about weddings yet. She's only 13 months!
