Frenchie Kisses: Me and My Bridesmaids

In the last post, I promised you more pictures of yours truly, so here it goes.

After taking pre-ceremony pictures with my family, my bridesmaids and I headed inside, out of the heat, and back to the lobby.

The photographers set me up on a bench opposite the front desk and had me strike a couple poses.

I’m the first at admit I’m not very good at “serious” pictures, but a couple of these shots turned out to be some of Mr Frenchie’s favorites.

I felt kind of like a celebrity posing in the lobby as people checked in. A lot of guest stopped to congratulate me and tell me how pretty I looked.

Mr Frenchie gave me that silver Tiffany bracelet for the first of my birthdays we celebrated. I wear it every day! It just goes to show, you don’t need to buy new schmancy jewelry.

Lastly, my bridesmaids and I posed for a few shots together. Look how good we are at ignoring each other. 😉

We’re so fierce!

Exhausted from acting all fierce and taking so many pictures, the Frenchie BMs and I went back to my parents’ room for sandwiches.

Up Next: What has Mr Frenchie been up to?

    I love your “ignoring each other” shots! You look so beautiful and I am totally digging your veil. Off to find your post about your veil, which I must have missed! ^_^

    That second shot is amazing!!!! You are much better at serious expressions than me. I frustrated our photographer with my grin! 😉 You look so beautiful, Frenchie!

    Great pics! I’m not so good at being serious in pictures, either. :)

    @SpinningJenny: Jenny, my veil was made by Mrs Sea Breeze! It was the first veil like that she made, can you believe it?!? If you’re interested, her shop is Kasia Fink Veils :)

    I love the second one. Drama and gorgeousness and the deep v of your corset lacing up. Love!

    You look beautiful! I love how your model pose and face! You totally rocked it. I’m extra impressed because after seeing my wedding pics, I realized that I’m physically incapable of making a “serious” face that doesn’t look angry or sad. 😉

    This is going to be a strange comment, but I love that you’re not slouching in any of your pictures. You’re so statuesque. I love the 4th picture!

    @nelzbels: Thank you! About a year before our wedding I started seeing a personal trainer and it really helped my posture. Thank you for noticing :)

    Awesome pics! LOVE the BM dresses – where did you get them and how much did they cost???

    @MNW: Thanks :) I really loved the dresses when we tried them on at the bridal salon, however after my BMs paid close to $200 for them they arrived with uneven hems and seems.
    If you REALLY want to know more about them please message me and I’ll give you the info, but I prefer not to give them the publicity on Weddingbee.
