A Highland Fairy Tale: We Make the Women Freeze

Where my girls at?  OH WAIT.  They’re right here, looking absolutely stunning and fresh.

Pretty faces with pretty bouquets.  I don’t have a close up of their bouquets but I thought they looked AH-mazing.  MOH Big Eyes’ had a few ivory spray roses to make hers stand out.

We did the obligatory shoe pic, but it was more of a boot pic, considering the circumstances.  I told each of the girls to wear whatever black shoe they desired for the wedding, and I also told them to bring warm boots for the outdoor bridal party photos.  Thank you Crystal for that tip!

The girls are so beautiful in their eggplant dresses and I love seeing their homemade tartan necklaces in each lovely picture.  The black shawls were part of their gift from me and worked really well in both style AND functionality.  You can see my tartan heart peeking through in the pic below:

Unfortunately due to weather and time we didn’t get as many pics of the girls as I would have liked but you have to accept that there’s only so much you can fit in and I’m really pleased with the ones we do have.  Once we moved to the parking garage we threw Mr. Sword into the girly mix.

You can see how wet the bottom of their dresses got in the next few photos.  Luckily everyone dried up in time for the ceremony.

I’m so glad their purple dresses photographed as dark as they did, because when I was using my simple point and shoot camera they tended to come out looking super bright and fuschia-like, which is pretty but didn’t match my vision at all.  In the end, I’d say our bridesmaid dresses were a huge success (and to think they were picked a few minutes in at our very first stop) and I can’t wait to show you all how we looked together as a group!

Did you or will you go with the classic, all matching, floor-length gowns like us?
