Sweet Fellowship: Duggars and Friends (aka the Bates Family and Other TLC Families Thread)

Recommended Posts

Actually, Nurie's dress and veil look nice? Her hair is a mess, though. Couldn't someone have styled it for her? Why is it a fundie requirement for brides to wear their hair in loose do-nothing waves down the front? And what's going on with her long bangs?

It's pretty striking how comparatively normal the non-Rodriguezes look in the photo. What's up with the one sister's weird lips(tick) and the other one's insanely overplucked eyebrows? Is Jill making them look freakish on purpose so she'll look better herself?

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!

I thought the same thing .. why the different greens through the wedding party

Also I’m not a fan of the green of the bridesmaids dresses with the purple of the bouquets and I do like green and purple together

I like green and purple together if done tastefully. Otherwise it reminds me of a tablecloth with bunches of grapes.

I still think their use of the purple-green color scheme is more like the Lysergic acid diethylamide version. 😁

Just sayin'. (but if Jill Rodrigues is not the hallucinogenic version of something, I don't know what is...)

And it looks she she might have added a panel overlay at the top. Whoever did that might have thought about taking the dress in a bit.

Wow. I just looked him up. You aren't kidding. If only one of the Duggarlings or Rodrigui had the looks to do that! I'd love to see JB's and M's  or J's and D's heads explode! 

Not a chance 🤣. Duggar boys look 45 at 18. Rod boys look like starving scarecrows. Imagine if Micah Plath showed up he’d be like Justin Bieber of fundie stardom. Jill would try to snag him for one of her starving waifs.

Nuri does look legit happy in some photos. Her smile looks real. I truly hope the little waif found happiness and Nathan treats her well.

That was my first thought.  She could have had an elaborate updo or something.  I guess the long hair thing is like a crown in fundie circles.

I didn't know the younger Duggars cried at their siblings' weddings, but given the sister mom thing I can see why. The people who did more of the actual child raising were leaving them. I do remember watching a really awkward clip of Derick and Jill saying goodbye en route to Danger America and one of the younger girls just sobbing uncontrollably. I think it was right around the time of the Josh scandal, so I'm sure there was a lot of stress in that house in general, but if I remember correctly, Jill was the only one consoling her. Everyone else just stood there like a goober while she was crying. 

The little kids crying when an older sibling gets married makes sense. My great aunt was 4 when her eldest sister got married (this was in 1931) and she fell asleep during the backyard reception, when she woke up her sister was gone and she cried because she did not get to say goodbye. Her Mom consoled her that her sister was just living up the street and she could see her in a few days. 
 

All of the little kids love Nurie and change is hard. Of course they are going to miss her and Nurie isn’t moving a few blocks away. JILL’s attention loving ass shouldve comforted her younger children and told them it was normal to miss Nurie, but they could still call and FaceTime her etc. Not capture their tears on camera and use it as an opportunity to snark on us heathens.

I honestly kind of detested the non-Rodrigues bridemaids' dresses the most. Because they did look so obviously altered because modesty. 

Whereas I think Priscilla's dress looked the best.

I feel like I make the same comment every time I see one or more of these fundy men trying to wear a suit, but why are the suits always too big???  I know it is not because they refuse to have their measurements taken.   You can figure out that the inseam is too long by just trying the pants on--too much ankle showing, go up a size, too much fabric pooling on the tops of your feet, go down a size.  Are they that dumb they cannot figure out what 30X32 or 30X30 means?  They can get the waist measurement correct, but not the inseam.

And don't get me started on the rentals for the groomsmen.  Did they just guess their sizes at the shop?

Someone in the Fundie Wonderland fb group found the source for the bridesmaid dresses. The modesty alterations are pretty horrible. The safety pin Jill's using to raise the neckline is a disaster. Reminds me of Michelle's modesty panel for her tin man dress, which, awful as it was, may actually have been better since the dress's bodice wasn't pulled and puckered. Jill should have just worn a separate shirt underneath. 😅

Why yes they did because of the fact that you have to go near the **** to measure the inseam and that is a no no. Because according to a fundie I know that is what turns a male gay.😂

I could be wrong, but I don’t think this is the source. The “base” dress looks totally different than David’s Bridals options. 🤷‍♀️

In that first picture, the one where the bride and bride's maids are holding their bouquets in the center--it looks like Nurie had to push her way into the picture.  It looks like Mama is standing in front of the bride and almost pushing her out.  Strange picture.

A plain white camisole or one trimmed with lace would've looked far better and would've coordinated the dresses better, too.

The short answer is no.  Also, her corsage looks like a garter.

But the wallpaper matches the colour scheme of the wedding!

Jill thinks she's more important/interesting than they are.  She is sadly mistaken.  In that bathroom photo, it looks like she's got her hands on Nurie ready to shove her down the aisle.  And, why is she wearing a wristlet with flowers?  The big a**ed bouquet she was carrying wasn't enough for dear, sweet Mama?

It says a lot that Nurie wore a wedding dress she bought in a thrift store for 15 bucks 8 years ago while the world's best Mama had a brand new dress complete with poorly executed modesty alterations.

And, there are literally dozens of dresses on that site that had sleeves and a high enough neckline to meet their ridiculous modesty standards without alterations.  Why not pick from those?  Well, because if they wear a Frankendress that everyone can see has been altered, then everyone can see how modest and godly they are and not think that they chose the style just because they liked it.

No, no, no... they bought 'em like that! JillR may have had her neckline altered, but the rest look like they were as is. Someone on another site found them! And even though it looks like they ordered the guy's vests and bow ties from the same place, the greens do not match.

I wasn't clear.  My comments were aimed at Jill and her insistence on getting a dress whose bustline was lower than she wanted, so she had it altered-poorly.

I know the other girls chose the modest options although most of them look like they didn't bother with fittings  or alterations.  The bodices on some of those dresses do not fit properly.

Part of the color mismatch is due to the fact that the dresses are a different fabric than the vests and are not shiny.  Even using the exact same dye, different fabrics will take the dye differently and that can result in a suboptimal matching of shades.  Either get the vests and the dresses in the same fabric or don't try to match them.  One or the other.

In the picture where they're holding their bouquets down you can see that minty color around her neckline as well. My guess is Jill made her wear a shirt underneath her dress because Godly modesty...

My apologies. I did misunderstood you! I agree the dresses were not fitted properly, and JillyR just had to show everybody how modest she is! And I did not think about the colors and fabric. I just think the mismatched greens all around made me a little stabby.

No problem.  Of course, they could've figured out the color issue had any of them thought to ask for fabric swatches in the planned colors before ordering dresses and vests.  Or, had they simply ordered black or dove gray vests for the men which would've looked a lot better than matchy matchy stuff anyway, IMO.

True. I think all the different shades of green made me hide under the furniture. They tried (and failed miserably) to match different shades of green.

I can't believe the Rods shelled out real money for clothing. Over three hundred dollars for the Not-Nuries, Jill, and the boys' vests. I doubt she could grift from Bridemaids.com .

Jill probably "fixed" her dress herself with a safety pin. Easy and free, if not quite successful.  Alterations cost money.
