Keep Your Wallet Open and Your Mouth Shut

A humorous look at how fathers can survive the wedding of a daughter. Describes all the wild and crazy things people (mostly brides and mothers of the bride) do leading up to a wedding.

Dear President Truman,

“…All in all, the father of the bride is a pitiable creature. No one bothers with him at all. He is always in the way-a sort of backward child-humored but not participating in the big decisions. His only comfort is a bottle of good bourbon. Have you plenty on hand?”

Letter from Secretary of State Dean Acheson to President Harry Truman on the occasion of Margaret Truman’s engagement.
