Planning My Golf Season…I Mean Wedding.

groom golfWhy didn’t anybody warn me that planning a wedding would seriously cut into my golf game? I expected the whole planning thing to be a little hectic and stressful but WTF! I used to be able to grab my clubs and sneak out for a quick 9 or set up a tee time on the weekend with the guys for 18. Oh, how things have changed.

For example, I had to forego a round this past Saturday because of…get this…cake tasting. Friggin’ cake tasting! Not only was I a little bummed out because I couldn’t golf but the cake wasn’t even good. It chaps my behind to think I missed a golf outing to go taste some tawdry cake. Wonderful. You see the sacrifices I make…?

Speaking of sacrifices, any extra money I would set aside for my golf fund has been redirected to the wedding fund. Again, wonderful. I know once this is over and everything gets back to normal I can hopefully get back to hacking up the ol’ track however, I do have some concerns. Not to sound greedy but with all this cash we’re shelling out for the wedding I’m hoping we at least break even on the deal.

According to a reliable source (the internet), the average wedding costs between $25,000 and $30,000. Do you know how many rounds that equates to? A crap load! Man, the stuff we do for love. I guess it’s time to grow up a little and enjoy this time of my life. Hey, soon enough and God willing I’ll be able to hit the links with my kid. Wow, the whole thought of showing my son or daughter how to golf just gave me goose bumps. Ok, this wedding thing ain’t so bad… :)

Hit’em long…yell FORE!!!

    You and the Beloved should do what they do in my family…go on a nice vacation to the Islands or Cancun, and return “married”….SURPRISE!!

    My best friend had a small quiet wedding with just a few friends and family present, and for their 1st-Wedding Anniversary had the big blow-out party.
