As Requested

After the wedding memory meme last Saturday, several people asked to see my bridesmaids' dresses and my dress. And my ring.

I found one great picture that shows off my bridesmaids' dresses and my dress pretty well. It's a goofy picture we took for the fun of it (the pose is so unlike someting Rob or my bridesmaids would really do that the very idea is hysterical). You can see how the bridesmaids' dresses are the same pattern as mine, but with a few tweaks (shorter hem and sleeves, different colors, buttons).

As I said before, I loved the point the bodice comes to in the front. The point is hidden in most of the wedding pictures because I'm holding the bouquet in front in it. One reason I love this picture is that you can see the whole dress. For the most part. You can't really see the hand-pieced lace on the sleeves, the bodice, and the point, but you really have to be close up to it to see those pretty details anyway.

My little sister is the one of the far left holding the bouquet. Next is Rob's sister. Sheryl, whom I've known since we were four and a half, is next. Remember this post? Yeah, she's the one people always think is me or my twin or my sister.

(We've been friends for 31 years. The confusion still happens. I've never been able to see it.)

Last in line is my awesome friend Janee (known in these parts and elsewhere as J. J. Panda, if you recall a few posts about her like this one and this one). She got me through a lot of tough times in high school and is still one of my rocks.

As for the ring, I had the hardest time trying to get a decent picture of it; either the flash made a huge glare and you couldn't really see it, or I used no flash it was blurry.

A photographer I am not.

It's got a single round diamond in the center, and each side has three smaller stones edging it.

Here's my best shot:

I love that picture! What fun!

I totally remember Janee from High School days. I don't think I ever really talked to her, but I remember her. Plus, I think she worked at Best In Music and I was there all the time.

Beautiful dresses! I often wish I'd gone for something a little more classy looking like that!

I'm sure my bridesmaids did too...

Great photo, and very cute dresses. Black, white, and red is totally the way to go. You're ring is even a lot like mine--I have a 1/3 carat round in the middle, and three chips to the side too. creeeepy.
