Experts? Really....?

Ok, I saw I was googled for "how to dress like an Amish man" yesterday.

THAT made me laugh. So I followed the link to see where I fell in the standings. While browsing I see "How to Dress for an Amish Wedding".

WTF?!?! THAT I had to read.

Let's see....what are some of the "highlights" in this little How To gem.....

"Step Three: Expect all of the men to wear bow ties for the special occasion, even though this is unusual for Amish men. "

What? Bow Ties?!?! "...even though this is unusual for Amish men". I thought the whole POINT was to dress LIKE an Amish wedding......

Bow ties? At an Amish Wedding?!?!

Ok - let's go on......

"Step Three: Help the bride make her own dress, which should be in a simple style without a train or trim. The dress should be mid-calf length."

First off....It's pretty obvious to me that Step Three seems to be a problem over all. But all that aside....

You'd think they'd explain a little better about the "simple style" of the dress. You know.....high neck, not fitted too tight....important stuff. The Actual STYLE for cryin' out loud.

THIS is a simple blue dress. Yeah, not exactly appropriate. CUTE but not appropriate.

THIS is another simple blue dress. Let me tell you.....show up wearin' one of those and you'll be sittin' in the barn. With a wool blanket wrapped around you.

I mean really.....it's not hard to google up a decent sampling of a Simple Amish Blue Dress......especially if you're only wanting to LOOK Amish.....

For cryin' out loud.

Hmmmm.....maybe along with that Amish Fitness Plan I came up with I could add Amish Wedding Planner to my repertoire.

I don't see anything wrong with those dresses.

Amish Wedding Planner! LOL! That was my morning laugh... reminds me of that Kirstie Alley movie in which she introduced bright colors to the Amish.
Tim Allen was in it, too.

Why blue, though? It always seems to be blue...
