Grad School Survey: Please Complete

Dear Buzzards:
In one of the most harrowing projects of my grad school experience, I have found myself on a project analyzing the purchase of wedding dresses, of all things. Very manly, yes, I know. It's the 'booty beer' of school projects.

I need your help collecting responses to our survey.

And think about how you might approach your wedding (in general) and the factors that you & your fiance' will consider when (or if) the day comes that you're on the market for a wedding dress.

Male respondents are especially important to this survey! Because weddings are so female-driven, the male perspective is under-represented. Yes, they don't technically BUY wedding dresses (with the possible exception of Casper Mike, because we all know you're a bottom), they DO play key roles in financial expenditures elsewhere, which factors into how the wedding dress purchase is made.

The survey doesn't include answers for someone lucky enough to have married a girl who picked out a $150 dress on the internet and got married on a sand pile in Lake Powell with their dog as ring bearer. Seriously, dresses cost $6000? That's a new raft with frame.

Well, I submitted the survey trying my best to answer as my wife would -- but Numbers 8 and 9 I had no idea.

I think you added too many zeros on the dress cost questions. I think my wife bought a $90 dress (on sale, of course). It wasn't just about cost though; she really didn't like the "wedding" dresses available anyway.

I had to look-up the definitions of all the dress styles...

Good luck with your project.

I tried to fill out your survey but it didn't provide a selection for someone who got married in jeans.

I also tried to fill it out but I made my own dress which there wasn't a category for.

Hey, my own bride got married in a $90.

I get lumped into the group in which a guy owns his own wedding dress alteration business (and he's not gay) and that's where it went. The survey did have some holes, for which I apologize!

But thanks for trying to help us out.

Blutzki: nice wedding (seriously).
