However Jill had better hair and makeup Joys wasnt altered too bad, but I would have loved her sleeves being a little tighter, too. 8.

And not just any November outdoor ice cream reception but a November outdoor ice cream receptionat a parking lot. (gosh I feel old) Sooo happy!!! Whitney: Im still not sure about the bolero but it was better than it couldve been I guess. SO pissed off. I like her hair as well.

Love the shoes, hair, and makeup on her. 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. That bodice is too busy and just plain ill-fitting, and the hemming makes it look like Michael is playing dress-up, not wearing a bespoke wedding dress. the rest (I will list the things I liked only): Michaela - lovely flowers and blush pink bridesmaids dresses.
This is a small hometown store that weve dealt with for 30 years. Aside from the bust, it's a cute, simple dress. Whitney - Smaller wedding party and tea length dresses. I also loved her shoes but wasnt that much of a fan of her hair. Erin's literally looked like someonesewed a silk t shirt to a strapless dress.

Alyssa. But to be fair I would hand them money and ask to do their weddings once more. As for Joy and Jill - I just think Jills hair held up better than Joys and Iliked her dress a bit better.
Tori wins so far. Kendra - not my style, but it matched her bubbly personality, fit her beautifully, and didnt have obvious modifications. 5) Erin - The whole dress just made her look puffy, especially the the added neckline and sleeves. Not a fan of any of the Bateses' dresses. It's simple with just a few unique details that give it personality. 5. I agree with your ranking @freethemall.

The only big issue was the modification to the neckline, which stood out pretty bad. hoipolloi, August 26, 2021 Extra points for great hair though and without question the hottest fundie husband: Poor Michael, she seems like such a nice person but her dress was Rufus-awful and I can't even start on the hair. Maybe more sparkle to the lace. But otherwise, the wedding seemed classy, and elegant. Stuff like lighting, retouching, etc., can make a dress look different in different photos. Michael's was definitely the worst. Hated the tan ones. I do think the design and style were very her, and she looked great. I don't care for Michael's either, but hers at least looks like it could've been made that way. Her dress is a bit ordinary late 90/early 2000 look, but I like that she went with the bolero route instead of slapping modesty panels on. 2) Whitney - generally, I'm not a big fan of the little bolero jacket over dresses or the side-swept skirt look, but if anyone can pull it off it's Whitney haha. Erin had the nicer hair and Michael the nicest colour scheme of all. I removed points because they insisted on an outdoor ice cream reception in November and thats just not cool. LOVE her shoes - they were like, a sneak peak of the fashion breakout about to come. Not something I'd personally wear, but I like it. And I am a fan of cherry blossoms, so there's that. Love the lace details and train, but the middle section, neckline and sleeves don't work and the underlay is too dark. 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. I didnt really like her bridesmaids dresses style but I like the colors and the fact that every bridesmaidis wearing heels. Alyssa looks like she's just dying to wear a strapless dress.

What fabrics do the Duggars and Bateses like?
The pink ones were a nice shade.
in Quiver Full of Duggars, By 11. Sleeves are a bit awkward. The dramatic sweep of Michaellas gown makes this wedding pic frame-worthy. By Anna (so hard to judge her because this was before they were all so famous and rich, and yes the sentimental factor). Kudos to Alyssa for going for a well-fitted trumpet style, it looked great on her and fit her personality. Otherwise it was lovely and I liked her hair and makeup. So Im just not sure if the whole wedding was really her.
The young men who brought it were absolutely stoned out of their gourds, I mean hysterical giggles, could not figure out how to install the freezer drawers..how to put on the handles, asked me if I had the tools they needed? Tori's is ill fitting in the mid-section and I do not like the neckline or sleeves at all. Not today.

Again I dislike the red and black colour scheme. I think Jills dress is odd because a lot of complaints centered around how it fit in the waist, but in a lot of photos that looks fine to me. I am still not quite over it. At least as much of it as I can gather. December 18, 2017 in Quiver Full of Bateseseseses. Was her wedding sponsored by Hot Topic in 2005? 2. Specifically, it was worn by Abbie, Lauren, Tori, Kendra, Michaela, Jessa, Jill, Alyssa, Whitney (2013), and Erin. It has a pretty train. Tori. Tori - absolutely gorgeous dress on a beautiful young woman. (Though Michaelas gown had a lot of ruching on the chest area. That picture of Kelly Jo and Gil is pure gold. 2. With a love as honest and endless as Gil and Kelly Jos, it seems fitting that both wore white. I am NOT happy. I also don't like the gathered-to-the-side style but again, that's just me. Alyssa had those straps and the ruffle flowers, Tori had the lace patches on the arms (all or nothing would have been nicer for long arms)and the champagne was a tad to dark for me. Thatd be the chapel train. It's amazing how much crap I've accumulated over the years, including home gym equipment that has barely been used. And sound off below: Which lovely wedding gown is your favorite? However, this dress looks like something from the 2000's. I give Michael props for not spending more than what she felt comfortable spending on a dress. I think, compared to the Duggars, the Bates ladies' dresses have been more what I expected based on their typical style, more suited to their personalities. I remember when she got married I kind of lol'd at her modesty straps because they felt like the bare minimum she could get away with wearing. I forgot that Alyssa's wedding dress itself wasn't that bad - the problem was the colour scheme and the awful awful malibu blue and hot pink bridesmaids dresses and decor. 4) Michael - I actually think her disaster alterations were better than Erin's, mostly because it wasn't tacked-on-t-shirt-sleeves (at least the seamstress tried to make the ruching of the bodice match the ruched added sleeves?). I'm not a fan of the sheer sleeves because what is the point of having them? Honestly, the whole look was very mid-2000s meh. And with a background as gorgeous as this, Alyssa and John kept their wedding photos simple and let their love shine through. Tori. Give me a darker, richer purple. Not even going to lie, I would straight-upwear her dress with some minor modifications (more form-fitting, maybe slightly different lace on top) and different shoes (because I abhor those 90. Sterling, KY) is the Designer of Choice. I thought that was pretty sweet. I do think the neckline was too high and looked awkward to me. We normally tip delivery guys, and tip well, really well. But, with that in mind, pure white is clearly excessively popular among Duggar / Bates Brides. Erin: I wish Erin could have a wedding do over now a Days so she could pick a better dress + bridesmaids dresses.
She's confident. The lace train of Toris dress is absolutely show-stopping. Of course Alyssas shoes were a nice little foreshadowing of things to come - and I know Im in the minority, but I really dont *hate* the color theme she had. Coconut Flan, June 23 Erin (but could be tied with Whitney, I dislike both equally), 10. Her wedding was just as nice as Jills, but with Joy it was wayyyy obvious she could care less, and was ready to get out of there. If I had to pick between the two, I actually liked Erins dress (PRE-t-shirt panel) better. That makes a nice wall color, not a formal dress color. The belt made the dress inconsistent. Meanwhile, Tori and Jessa said their vowsfor the first time!in champagne and blush gowns, respectively, As of November 2018, lace and tulle are tied for the top wedding gown fabric, with 6 (or, 40% of) Duggar and Bates Brides wearing each. On top of that it was absolutely filthy, despite being run through a car wash. It is a good thing these girls are taught not to be envious and to keep sweet and grateful, because if I were any of Erin/Whitney/Michael, I'd be sobbing with jealously when I saw how amazing Tori's dress was compared to my monstrosity. they also need some pants tailoring guide (usually too wide and too long). Oh dear Rufus! It was a pleasure to go through the pictures that don't bring on the facepalm. As far as the other Bates wedding dresses, I like Tori's, except I wish there wasn't so much contrast between the champagne bottom and white top. So modesty fail there. I think the confidence factor is the most important because you can put a bride in a beautiful gown, but the lack of self-confidence takes a lot away from it. Joy looked lovely and happy though, as did all the otherBrides. Annas look was simple, but classic and I think she likely had less budget to work with than any of the others. But her age excused it a bit. Erin - that modesty panel and sleeves kills me every time I see her dress. Coconut Flan, June 28 Alyssa's color scheme was the snarkiest, but damn those shoes look sexy on her. sweet Jesus, this is a long post. It all looked phenomenal, and dare I say classy. I just lost a dear friend to Covid. In terms of bridesmaids, dress style was nice but I loathe that shade of purple. Both options havent got a nice cut.
5. Jinger - hands down the winner. I agree that she shouldve just gone strapless. Tori - I shared my piece about Toris dress, but for those who didnt see it, I agree with the color of the lace, being too stark of a contrast with the tone of the underfabric. I've been working on cleaning out my home. She was glowing and happy and made me forget she was 19. I also liked Toris bridesmaid dresses. Tori and Bobby added holiday touches to their wintertime wedding.
Post your rankings! All the Duggars get points for sentimentality as well - Anna borrowed her sisters dress, Kendra used a ruffle from her moms dress,and the rest incorporated a portion of Michelle and Grandma Marys dress into theirs as well.
