Yeah, I only have the one suit

The fathers-of-the-groom walking up the aisle at Ethan and Becca's wedding in Sedona last Saturday. The monsoon took down the chuppah but we all soldiered on, and there was nary a drop during the ceremony. The officiant said that there was an ancient Sedona tradition (uh-huh) that rain on a wedding day was good luck, but come on--what else are they going to say?

Congratulations! (Why does anyone need more than one suit anyway?)

I'm torn. On the one hand, I think Roger could use a new suit because I've SEEN this one, bored now, entertain me. On the other hand, I haven't actually met Roger in the flesh in 20 years. We're in the same business-- I know I'll run into him someday, and I am kinda counting on recognizing the suit. "Oh, Roger, you haven't changed a bit!" Yeah, like that.

OMG--I think I have the identical suit, which I bought for an in-law lawn wedding circa 1988! Maybe from the same downtown Chicago retailer. Mine doesn't fit nearly so well anymore, nor could I tie a bow so nicely. Congratulations to parents and newlyweds alike!

BTW it's an old ITALIAN proverb -- "sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata." Roughly: a rained-on bride is a lucky bride.

Doesn't say anything about changing one's luck, suit-wise, however...

I was a rained-on bride and we had a wonderful 44 year marriage until my husband's death.

Mazel tov, groom's fathers.
