Both mothers of the bride are wearing pale green....which I find unreasonably hilarious.  Nice try, Jill.

Jill posted about going to the Duggars' church after they attended Jinger's wedding and how much they admired the pastor and his family. 

That is Paul Caldwell, right?  So perhaps she thought her girls became besties with Kendra and her sister.  Either Kendra turned down an invitation to be a bridesmaid, or chose not to attend the wedding, which was enough reason for Jill to write her off.

I read it on a forum that little girls in white are traditional.  I don't know if this is true, but I googled it and google confirmed it's true. Like a lot of traditions associated with weddings, flower girls are lot less sweet if you know the origins. 

"Traditionally, the little girl represented the fading of a bride's innocence and the passage from childhood to womanhood. A symbol of fertility and family, the flower girl announced the bride’s new role as a wife and a future new mother."  Flower Girl Guide

Also a book I read put it more bluntly the flower girls tossing flowers is symbolic of the bride "tossing her flowers" (on the wedding night). 

Some of the girls are old enough to be junior bridesmaids, but it was probably cheaper to buy green dresses. A big fundie-lite family I know had ivory flower girl dresses, because they reused the dresses over again at the next wedding. The bridesmaid dresses changed, but the flower girls dresses were the same. I think more modern weddings match the flower girl to the wedding party.

It isn't just modern weddings that match the flower girl(s) to the attendants.  I had a matching in color and style dress and the same hairpiece way back in the 50s.  My mother just loved cutting that junior pattern down to a kids' six.  🙂

Perhaps it's the lighting/shadows, but the littlest girl in the front looks like she's got a green dress on instead of a white one?

Also, WHY ARE THERE TWO SETS OF GREENS HAPPENING?! You can't have yellow-green and blue-green in the same event - it doesn't go. (This has been bugging me for days.) I'm not a yellow-green fan, but at least have everything match. goodness!

Yes, it looks like Janessa matches Mr JRod and the two of them match no one.

Nurie's sisters actually look like healthy versions of her in that picture.

I guess it’s a good thing there are 9 girls. Fundie girls are easier to marry off. The boys have to come up with some way to support themselves before they can snag a wife.

Speaking of the Plaths, I don't know that any of this has hit this forum, but one of the brothers, the 19 year old, Micah, I think, has been apparently putting together a portfolio as a male model of the very scantily clad variety. And he is stunning. Some photos have shown up on the Fundie Wonderland page on Facebook, but I haven't posted or linked since I'm not sure that the Plaths are closely enough tied to the Duggars for their own subject here, plus, frankly, the last photo I saw bordered on not safe for work. I'll leave it to someone else to play sleuth if it's appropriate here.

Actually that's pretty tame by fundie standards.

The Maxwells talked about crying very hard when their first son Nathan got married and he moved next door or the house behind them, etc. 

Harold Mally is the father of two daughters, both of whom lived at home until they got each got married (two weddings less than a year ago). His words were way more dramatic. His older daughter Sarah (Mally, not Maxwell), got married in May at age 41 and we were chatting here about it. His younger daughter Grace was the first to get married in November 2019 and here's what old Harold said about 30/31-year-old daughter getting married. He's describing walking his daughter the aisle.

Sarah Mally got married? How old/creepy is her husband, and how many kids does he have?

The Windsors got the green right, and used it sparingly. It seems like a hard color to match, and the challenge was beyond Jill's abilities.

Then, she's just being a bitch. However, while we are curious about these wedding photos, our lives go on either way. Jill gets stuck in her tiny life.

Sally Mally is the author of Before You Meet Prince Charming. She has two younger siblings a sister Grace and a brother Stephen.

There's a few older single Sarahs. The most famous is Sarah Maxwell, who is 38 and still single. Sarah Maxwell has 5 brothers, who are all married and most have kids. (Jesse just got married.) Sarah Maxwell's sisters are unmarried. All three sisters live at home.  Their father is control freak Steve. 

Sarah Mally Hancock and Sarah Maxwell get confused, which is why I'm posting this.

I'm pretty sure Jill has never been embarrassed in her life. I think she is physically incapable of experiencing it or understanding it. I think she thinks she's being coy. LOL

I went looking for the male model. Oh my. I've mentioned on here that I went to C of O. We had a running joke about anything slightly risque being greeted with a sarcastic "That's not C of O appropriate!" (Bonus points if said in a whiny nasally voice.) That's literally what I blurted out to nobody when I saw that NSFW pic. 😆

I liked that the bridesmaids got to pick their dresses. They looked really nice AND the colors matched, so they had to go to a professional. 
 

The little girls were always going to be in the frilliest dresses money could buy. The older girls probably know how to work Jill (a little), but the little ones are no match. 
 

And, yes, Jill, of course you were Nurie’s matron of honor. Besides her sisters, who else is she going to ask?  At least you wore a bridesmaid color and not white. 🙄

Poor Nathan.  Married all of 4 days and the mother-in-law from hell is probably calling at all hours of the day and making Nurie cry. His “compassion” must be wearing thin.
I really despise that narcissistic bitch Jill.  Such a vile excuse for a human being.

The one sister has the mint green on her sleeves. All the adults wore ballet flats, but the the youngest kids. And what a lovely picture of the bride and her mom/MOH - in a bathroom.

What were the words the Duggars were throwing around in regard to fashion? Classic and classy? This wedding was neither.

Happy for Nurie that there's no correlation between a well put together wedding and a happy marriage.

Well, we know that at least one of that couple spent her time waiting for prince charming (and writing a book about it being worth that wait, long before the male waiter showed up...).....But I'd really like to hear from one of the men about the paragon he was waiting for.......and how he finally found her and why that was worth the wait.........I'll have to wait till hell freezes over for that, though, I suppose.

I can't hold it in any longer. The wedding dress. Mattel wouldn't even make that for a Barbie. The veil, although tasteful, even a little playful, does not go with the dress or the hairstyle. The necklace, that looks a wee bit like a rosary, is too long for the neckline. And then the hairstyle.

But back to that dress. I hope its a one of a kind.

I like Nurie's bracelet.
