  1. The Quiverful of Duggars sub-forum has their own rundown of Duggar wedding dresses, so now with Tori Bates getting married, we obviously need a thread dedicated to dresses. Post your rankings! Here's mine, from best to least: 1. Tori (Bates) Smith Without question, the most sophisticated dress and despite some iffy modifications, overall beautiful. Extra points for the long train, classy updo, nice shoes, being adventurous enough to choose a champagne underlay, a fitted lace bodice with some sparkle, and even going for a bit of a sexier look. Could be perfect if fitted better on the waist and possibly didn't have the shear sleeves but just the lace cap sleeves, since there's already a lot going on. Her whole winter theme came together well, so this is easily my personal favorite Bates wedding. 2. Alyssa (Bates) Webster Kudos to Alyssa for going for a well-fitted trumpet style, it looked great on her and fit her personality. Extra points for the bright pink shoes and manila veil. Points taken away for the awkward flower on the waist, the earrings that do not fit the look, and the weird thick strap/cap sleeve since we all know Alyssa was itching to ditch the modesty standards the second she got to Florida. The Barbie pink and blue colors are not for me, but are fitting for her age, personality, and time of year. 3. Whitney (Perkins) Bates I personally don't like Whitney's dress at all, but at least it fit her well and she went for a cute bolero instead of some dumb modesty modification. I also don't like the gathered-to-the-side style but again, that's just me. Can you imagine her look though if she hadn't been trying her best to be "modest" to impress her new fundie in-laws, had already gone to a few other fundie weddings like Jessa and Jinger's, and had come into the awesome sense of style and beautiful hair she has now? I think she would have looked great in Jessa's dress and a nice updo instead of the over-geled bangs and slightly crunchy waves. Bonus points for this sassy pose though, showing us that jeans and a career in real estate would eventually be in her future even if she had to hide her leggings in her honeymoon pics: 4. Erin (Bates) Paine I actually thought Erin looked really cute overall and it helps that she's just such a beautiful girl that she'd make any dress look okay, even though she was a victim of the fundie-modesty-frankenstein-t-shirt-dress trend. The dress fit her bodice well, the princess style suited her personality perfectly, there was just enough sparkle, but I just can't get past that awful modesty panel on the front and dumb sleeves. Can you imagine what her wedding would have looked like in 2017 once the Bates had more money from their show and fundies were finding designers like Ms. Renee? Extra points for great hair though and without question the hottest fundie husband: 5. Michael (Bates) Keilen Poor Michael, she seems like such a nice person but her dress was Rufus-awful and I can't even start on the hair. Her dress is the worst example of modesty-frankenstein alterations, with that horrible ruched front and badly done sleeves, and just generally not form-fitting in any way. As a fellow short girl, she either should have skipped the A-line style for something more fitted at the hips (a sheath, trumpet, or mermaid) or worn heels - it doesn't help that the way it was hemmed made it too long. The only nice thing I can say is I liked the cherry blossom/rustic theme including the pink and beige bridesmaid dresses since it fit their relationship history. Even worse that in the BuB episode we saw 2 dresses that looked SO much better on her. Look at that first one, and even her hair just down like that, she would have looked gorgeous! And just for fun, here's Kelly Jo and a porno-stached Gil:
  2. Welcome! It's your resident FJ Wedding Dress Enthusiast; Jinder. I fucking love wedding dresses and so will be ranking/reviewing all of the Duggar wedding gowns so far. This is intended to be light-hearted and in no way BEC....that's why I'm not reviewing any Bates' dresses (yikes). Feel free to share your favourite Duggar dresses so far! Let's get started. In order of most favourite to least favourite: 1. Jinger's Dress: The Showstopper. Jinger wowed all of us with her double-layered 13 ft. train. The traditional white lace ballgown featured pearl buttons and detailed 3/4 illusion-laced sleeves. It was made or 'made' by Ms. Renee of Renee's Bridal and Special Occasions. She completed the look with simple pearl earrings, a hand-made bracelet and a waltz-length veil. Bonus Points: Floral pink pumps for a pop of colour That lovely silver-beaded headband Wearing a styled updo! Managing a 13 ft. train. OMG that train is so gorgeous. Penalties: None! Jinger wins this one. 2. Jessa's Dress: The Blessa Blush Ballgown. Jessa also surprised viewers with her Allure Modest Collection blush ballgown. It was a lovely youthful look featuring a beaded bodice, cap-sleeves and tulle ball-gown skirt. She completed the look with a simple layered fingertip veil with a blusher (ha ha, see what I did there). Bonus Points: Her jeweled off-center headband! Wearing pink and not giving a fuck. Not giving Jim Bob the satisfaction of conducting her first kiss. Penalties: Sticking poor Jana in that offensively pink ruffle monstrosity. Not letting us see her shoes! (I know Blessa doesn't care about shoes, but I do). Make her wedding guests eat ice-cream outside, in November. Kendra's Dress: The Vivacious Voluminizer Kendra sported a fun ballgown also by Renee's Bridal and Special Occasions. This number featured a layered ballgown skirt (either of tulle or organza material) and a beaded bodice with cap-sleeves. She topped off the look with a very fluffy fingertip veil. Actually, Kendra's whole wedding look was quite fluffy. Bonus Points: Picking a dress that really complimented her personality. Not letting the dress wear her. Her beaming smile. Penalties: I wanted my rainbow poop emoji earrings, dammit! A lack of mint. Amy's Dress: The (Modern) Hit and (Modest) Miss. I know some may prefer to forget about her, but Amy was a Duggar at one point....and Essence of Australia dress was a big hit. The ivory gown was made from a silk-satin and featured a full pleated skirt and strapless sweetheart neckline. The dress was topped off with a lovely champagne sash that complimented her bridesmaids' dresses. She finished the look with some gorgeous earrings and a cathedral veil. Bonus Points: Wearing a cathedral veil (those are hard to manage!) Defrauding half her family with her neckline Choosing quality material. Wearing a well fitted dress. Celebrating her union with drink and dance. Penalties: Unfortunately, I had to subtract 10 points from Gryffindor because Amy's reception dress was...er, not the most flattering. I found it too shiny, too ruched and just too much. I know you're serving champagne Ames, but you don't have to wear it. She looked like a wedding guest...and not the best dressed one. I deem the champagne party starter dress a miss. I don't want this post to be too long, so I'll continue the series tomorrow. Thanks for entertaining my silliness. Good night!
  3. Last thread found here: Sierra is a alleged wedding planner, turned caterer, turned wedding coordinator, and who knows what she'll invent herself as next. Title is from one of her newest instagram posts, where she said that she said she wants the love in her marriage to be so strong that nobody can deny God's existence...in the middle of an argument with said husband. Let's see how this unfolds!

    SO Blessed To Share This...

    In the spirit of fundie oversharing about deeply personal matters, I just want to announce that I can now righteously fulfill my desires. That means I can bone my husband.
  5. Okay, so by some bizarre cosmic coincidence one of my very best friends (who happens to also be my only friend that still lives in my home town) is also getting married. She is also marrying a guy from overseas. Her fiance is also moving here. She also met her fiance online. She is also getting married rather quickly. Her fiance is also tall and skinny. They are also having a very low key registry wedding. They are also getting married very soon. They too are inviting only a handful of very close guests. It's pretty fucking weird how similar our circumstances are. However they have diverged with her unexpected announcement that she is expecting. I'm happy for her but there's a very real and selfish part of me that feels cheated. Not long ago she and I were discussing children and how they weren't really on the cards for my fiance and I. She agreed that she had no pull towards being a parent. That made me happy because literally everyone else I grew up with except this friend has kids. It was a relief to have a close friend to navigate childlessness with. We could continue to make out plans to meet up whenever it was convenient. We'd continue our beloved traditions of trawling thrift stores and going to the market, meeting up on a whim. We could maybe sometimes do couple things and it would be great. Now that's all changing very suddenly. Mostly I feel very protective of her. She's going through some hard shit that I won't write about here, even on a totally anonymous not-a-blog. I know she won't be one of THOSE parents whose identity becomes their child. I still worry, though. I want my friend of over 20 years. I want her to be recognisable on the other side for MY sake, and for that I'm sorry. I can't help but feel left behind. I honestly don't know if I can ever carry a child to term, and if I did there's a strong likelihood they would be a very sickly child like I was. Still, the idea of having our kids growing up being friends the way we did is a tempting one. I have to remind myself that really isn't on the cards for me, and hey - maybe if I did have a kid our kids would hate each other. She really needs a friend right now and I'll be there for her no matter my worries and selfish impulses. I can promise her that. Wow, that got heavy. Ha ha. Wasn't expecting that because the whole point of this blog post was something a lot more light-hearted and far more frustrating: shopping for wedding clothes. She and I went out shopping this morning at our favourite vintage store. My friend is gorgeous and very slim - even now she's pregnant - and found a billion different things to try. Sure, it was harder than usual because she had to accommodate the kid, but she managed to find this gorgeous blue dress. Good thing she did, because the wedding is about 10 days away! I found a few things to try on but sadly vintage clothes just aren't made for busty girls. It doesn't help that the store mostly has sizes 6-10. Vintage 6-10s are even smaller than regular ones. Even in my teen years when I was a 6 I would have been too busty to find a good fit. Now that I'm a 12 it's hopeless. I tried on a 16 (and it was such a gorgeous dress!) and it was WAY too small for my chest, and swimming in other areas. It's a shame because I LOVE vintage clothes. I have a few in my closet I could wear to her wedding but they're very much winter dresses and there's no way in hell I'm wearing anything wintery in the middle of summer. So I'm calling bullshit on clothes shopping. I knew it would be painful. I wish I could just wear jeans and a nerd t-shirt like I usually do. Or even better, ripped jeans, my leather chucks and a flannel shirt (I'm not getting married 'til Autumn). In fact, my friend told me to go ahead and do it! But I have parents to placate and I think I'll look back with regret if I didn't dress up just a little. I'm definitely not wearing a wedding dress, or anything white. I have ordered a dress but it's wholesale and from China and I have no expectations of it fitting in any way even though I ordered two sizes bigger than I am. It's more of a guideline for when I inevitably have to have a dress quickly made because my tits are too big, my legs too short and the rest of me too average. It's not meant to be painful. TV and magazines say getting a wedding dress is a huge milestone in life, one to be witnessed by family and friends (and cameras!), a time when the blinders fall away and you realise in a moment from a fairytale just how beautiful you can be. Bullshit. Not for me. I've been cheated and it's just not cricket.

    Urk.

    I thought it might be a good idea to have a place to write about what's going on in my life, since big things are rapidly happening. First thing is that I'm getting married April 2016. Possibly even March. It's happened pretty fast but there's really no reason to wait since we don't want a party or a big wedding, and the sooner we're married the sooner my fiance can apply for a spouse visa and live here full time. I'm so happy and excited to marry him, I wish we could do it even sooner. I really couldn't hope to find a better partner than him <3 Second thing is that I'm disabled and live with chronic pain. I've finally managed to get in to see a pain clinic that offers comprehensive treatment. That comprehensive treatment means 5 hour sessions with everything from psychologists, psychiatrists and surgeons. Three five hour sessions. That's going to be really hard for me. I hate talking to strangers, especially strange doctors because doctors have been so fucking useless to me for the past 15 years of my life. My fiance will be able to come to my final appointment with me (thank god), and my mother will come to the first (you have to bring a relative/partner to certain appointments) but I know she's going to say stuff that will humiliate me because she has zero fucking tact. I'm also going to have to work on fixing up my apartment that I haven't lived in for 2 years so my fiance can move into it with me. It's going to be a bit of an adjustment, going from living by myself, being on my own all day to living with a partner full time. He has a job lined up (not that he can be paid until his spouse visa is approved) that means in a few months when his tourist visa expires he'll be out of the house most of the day. I never really saw myself as the stay at home wife type, but here I am. Hopefully we can both finish up our degrees and one day I'll be in a position to work. I don't want him to have to be the breadwinner, that's too much pressure on top of having to move half a world away. He's prepared to do it because he's wonderful, but it's not what I want. So yeah, got to fix up the apartment. Needs tons of cleaning (which I can't do, but my family is helping). I'll have to sort a lot of my shit into boxes and put the boxes... somewhere. God knows where. It's a lot going on at once for me and it's a bit overwhelming. On top of all that I'm really sick at the moment. Like, can't get out of bed for more than a trip to the bathroom or kitchen for a glass of water. If anyone actually reads this (which I doubt), don't worry. I'm sure I'll be on to bitterly eviscerating episodes of A Game of Thrones in no time at all. God damn, the writing on that show...
  8. Previous thread here: Jinger and Jeremy are married and off to have fundie adventures Down Under. We saw the dress, we saw a picture of Josh, and Lawson pouting with Spurgeon. Carry on folks!
  9. Continued from: It seems to me that since we named the forum after her, we should get her a present from all of us. The present should be something she needs but she might not think of listing on her (probably huge) gift list. For example, A cookbook of authentic Italian recipes A year's supply of birth control A playlist of secular songs that every 20-something should know Other ideas?
  10. https://www.yahoo.com/beauty/dad-marries-terminally-ill-daughter-143702269.html This article caught my eye and turned my stomach. Can't do much background footwork at the moment... but it felt very FJ discussable... 16 months old!!! If she were 6 and wedding obsessed as some little ones are, I'd feel better about this. But this feels so.... fundieicky
  11. Emily Long got married on March 12th. The Longs posted a bunch of wedding related stuff this week, including video of Emily and Wesley's vows and first kiss. http://www.thelongwaytogo.com/
  12. cmellestudios.com/blog/meet-the-alexanders/ A few thoughts: 1. 12 attendants EACH?!?! Holy crap. 2. In a couple of the brides photos there is far more cleavage than I would think lori would approve of. 3. Seriously homoerotic groomsmen pictures. Hilarious, but again, not Lorken approved. 4. Almost zero pictures of lori (she appears in the background at the church and then dancing with steven). Curious.

    Duggar Weddings & Receptions

    I had a nightmare about this wedding the other night and All I can picture in my mind is that Jill wears Michelles wedding gown from a couple of years ago. Attendents gowns were the ones worn at Josh and Anna's wedding and Jill borrows Anna's bouquet like Michelle did when her and boob got remarried. Jimboob doesn't even have to buy used because wedding attire is just hanging around the house. Reception foods: bottles of pickles with a ribbon tied around the top of the jar created a down home centerpiece for the Bridal Table. All guest eat holding their party plates on their laps ate the finger foods of little squares of cut bologna with French's Mustard Smiley Faces atop a Ritz Cracker That Ma Bates made with her own two hands. A small chunk of Tator Tot Casserole scooped up with a tiny melon ball cutter was the main course. The Casserole was lovingly made by the youngest Duggar sisters, the ones with the snot on their noses. Yum Yum. On the Bride and Grooms table a small store bought day old cake with Happy Graduation crossed out and Good Luck written was used for the couple to cut but the main cake was the famous Duggar Ice Cream cake made from Ice Cream Sandwiches served to all the guest. Cousin Amy can provide the entertainment at the Wedding and Reception. Jimboob hardly had to spend any money at all on Jills wedding. Isn't it funny how we remember some dreams but always seem to forget the good ones. Every thing in this nightmare was so vivid and in color no less. Amy had on cowboy boots and a mini skirt and all the guys at the reception were yelling Nike at her every time she started to sing.

    Jill's Wedding Part 2

    Part 1: viewtopic.php?f=87&t=22287
  15. Did anyone notice J'chelle wore the EXACT SAME DRESS as Kelly wore to Alyssa's wedding?
  16. I noticed Jill & Derick posted pics from their honeymoon (http://starcasm.net/archives/277545) which appears to be on a beach somewhere. Anyone know where they went? And more importantly, did Jill wear a bathing suit from this century?--
  17. When is it exactly (date and time), and what will you be doing to celebrate?
  18. I think we can all say that Jill's wedding was very well received by the media. It DEFINITELY topped Smuggar and Anna's wedding. I bet smuggar was very jealous about it. With over 1,000+ guests, her wedding was the IT spot to be for fundies, like a fundie convention. Jill will definitely be the fundie IT girl for awhile now... Do you think that Jessa's wedding will be as popular with the fundies and media? For some reason, I have been wondering about it and I don't think it will be as big as a turn out... It could be just the way their relationship is right now and how cold they interact with each other. However, I think that when Jana eventually and hopefully soon gets married, it may just may top Jill's? What do you guys think?

    Congrats Jill Duggar and Mela99

    I hope you both have a wonderful day with your significant others and that your weddings go smoothly and are exactly what you want.
  20. The 19K&C Facebook has a guest post by His Majesty Randy Fenoli of Say Yes to the Dress, picturing Jill's wedding dress. He writes: {L_OFFTOPIC} : "I feel this wedding gown by Edargo Bonilla would be absolutely perfect for Jill! It has a full ball gown skirt of tulle and lace, and has a high neck and 3/4 length sleeves. This will give her the coverage she needs, yet is light, airy, and will make her feel like a true princess on her wedding day. The mixture of laces makes it fresh, whimsical, and romantic." I don't think she or other fundies would go for any kind of sweetheart like that, not without a modesty panel covering up that super-sexy upper chest skin. I am, however, still holding out for one of these fundies to do a good Kate Middleton-style lace-sleeve dress, and was surprised Alysa Bates didn't do it. Anyone else's thoughts?

    Why Jill First?

    Forgive me if this answer is buried in one of the courting threads. The way TLC has shown it, Jessa and Ben started courting first, but Jill who started after them is already engaged. It just seems off to me given how much they emphasize courting, and taking time. That Jill would get married first when she started courting second.
  23. So, we've seen a wide range of honeymoons from Josh's SC honeymoon to the Bates kids Ireland and Hawaii trips, and I seem to remember a new couple doing a cruise. The question is Will the Bates continue with the "flashy" trips for Michael and Alyssa after their big day? Will the Duggars step it up for Jessa and Jill? (Assuming that all four couples get married of course)

    Fake Jew Wedding Video

    This is a video about the marriage of Naomi from Everyday Set-Apart. She and her husband have been legally married since May (the betrothal ceremony), but they didn't have the religious ceremony until September, and she lived with her family during that entire time. PuNyn9_983c Some observations: -Jewish weddings used to have separate betrothal and marriage ceremonies that were months apart, but the custom became to have them on the same day, what with the all the uncertainty of not knowing when you could get expelled or massacred by your neighbors. -The lighting and tinting on the video looks awful. -Just because a shofar is a Jewish object, doesn't mean that it gets used at every Jewish occasion. -I can't tell if Naomi looks exhausted or resigned. -In a video that was 7:51, Naomi spoke for less than 30 seconds. Joe even answered the one question that was directed to her. -Seriously, whoever made this video . . . don't quit your day job.
  25. It's our old buddy Al Mohler, of course: "President Bush did not merely attend the wedding. He also served as an official witness, signing the legal documents for the ceremony and the Maine wedding license. Under a photograph with the former president the couple added the words, 'Getting our marriage license witnessed!' The news coverage of the Bushes' attendance at the same-sex wedding points to a reality that must be understood—and fast. Attendance at a wedding is not a neutral act." There's something to be said for Episcopalian snobbery when it's used for good and not evil. Al, these people are old, rich, and don't give a flying f**k what you think of their friends. joemygod.blogspot.com/2013/10/southern-baptists-attack-george-barbara.html#disqus_thread
