Pics & Critique of My Brother's Wedding this past weekend

Their wedding turned out beautiful even though it was pouring rain out. Good thing the ceremony and reception were already planned  indoors. It was held at the Trump National Golf Club in my hometown of Palos Verdes (LA area) I had a blast being a bridesmaid and found it extra emotional walking down the aisle as I know the next time I do it, I'll be a bride, ahhh! I was so nervous. The bridal party walked out to "Beauty and the Beast instrumental", was actually really pretty. My biggest critique is that my brother and my now sister-in-law never walked around and thanked their guests at the reception nor did they have a receiving line. So many of their guests never even had the opportunity to talk to them! Also give your bridal  party ample time to get ready, with a good hour buffer zone longer than you figure because hair/make up took longer than we were told and we missed out on taking bridesmaid pics before the ceremony. I posted a few pics below of the wedding. I know I'm nosey and love looking at all weddings now and sure you girls all do too!!

Bouquets!

    Those critiques are great reminders of little things to make sure to plan for.

    There were 3 bridesmaids, 2 mothers and the bride. (Total of 6) with one girl doing makeup and 1 girl doing hair. We had on-location hair and makeup done in the venue's bridal suite. The first hair/makeup started at 10am for a 4:30pm ceremony. We were supposed to be ready by 3pm for pics, but didn't end up ready until closer to 4pm.

    I loved the style and color of the bridesmaid dresses, but didn't like the satin. Satin shows every bulge and was hot. But it ended up feeling good since it was a cold and rainy day. All worked out perfect ;-) I liked that we each had a different style of dress.

    Ooooo right. Now I remember. I think you looked fantastic! :)

    I'm glad it all worked out - I know there were some issues/concerns with your brother's wedding being shortly before yours.

    Those are great tips and great pics! Thanks for sharing :) I'm definitely getting a bit anxious about the timeline of getting ready, etc. Based on what you said I definitely think I'm going to build in cushion time so everything runs smoothly.
