So, one downside to planning from afar… I don’t really get to have “wedding adventures” with my family. I send them these awful emails like… “We went bridesmaid dress shopping!” or “I picked out my wedding dress!” or “Hey, I just had a great idea for my invitations!” They don’t get to participate due to distance, and so everybody has a sad.
Not so for tux fittings! Bossyboots set his man-attire look just before Christmas, so while I was down with my family, my dad and I thought it be funny if we made an event out of the Pops Snapdragon tux fitting. I had to be his wing-woman and tag along!
Now to remind you – there are 21 kids in my immediate family. Imagine what that means for Christmas… that’s right, stress and more stress. We have NO TIME to do anything but shop for hams and wrap presents. My dad’s tux fitting needed to happen in 15 minutes or less.
First, load yourself up with Starbucks. Do not pass Go. And definitely do not pass your local Starbucks.
2. Go to a location with a parking lot. Park right by the door. Again, no thinking, just doing.
3. Bring a clipboard. When your daughter makes fun of you for bringing a clipboard; ignore her, she’s a fool. Clipboards are awesome.
4. So that everyone knows how you feel, discard unwanted tux paraphernalia on the desk. You have standards.
5. Have fun! Because that’s the whole point. (Well, besides making sure you order a tux that fits.)
In and out in 15 minutes. Success!
