thanks so much for continuing to share your favorites. I can see that so far that the dress photo thread is the most popular.

this week let''s see your favorite shot of you or anyone else getting ready for the wedding day.

the rule of the game is that you''re only allowed to share one photo per weekly thread. however, you are allowed to reuse a photo you used in a previous thread.

Wow, wannaB! That is a beautiful shot!

This is my favorite "getting ready" shot. My sister wanted to help, so she put my earrings on for me.

I made my picture black and white to make it look more professional. (My sister took it.)

I forgot to say that I had just read the card DH wrote to me when she took this picture.

hehe, I''m cheating like charbie and doing two, because I probably should have posted one with me in my dress instead of the other one...

HH, I love it! I have a similar picture of myself, seriously needed a glass...or two....to set the nerves pre-ceremony!

I'm a tad too lazy to look through all my pics, so I'm posting a pic that I pre-shrunk in the past...

ETA: You can't see how stressed I was at this point. My absolutely awful hair person forgot to put my veil on for me. We tried to go to a neighboring salon to get it fixed, but it was a 30 minute drive away (that's what I get for having a wedding in the middle of acres of wineries!) and we just didn't have the time for it. My SIL managed to put the thing on, but it kept slipping off through out the day!

Thank you, Rachie and Pocahontas! I love it too and as I mentioned in a previous thread, I loved that my photographer was able to give me something truly beautiful even though I wasn''t very easy to work with. I was such a mess before the ceremony.

I love my photos and I appreciate that you liked them, too!

Here''s mine! I like the mirror/symmetrical effect.

I''m not so wild on the fact that my fringe is hanging down so it looks a bit like I have a giant sideburn... but I guess that just adds to the not-quite-ready-yet feel! ;-)

Here is my getting ready shot. I had the makeup artist working on me and a peppermint tea to calm my tummy before the big walk down the aisle

I''m not exactly a newlywed anymore (although I still feel like one lol) so I have no business browsing this thread really, but I just wanted to say, iloveny, you are so beautiful! Your pics are all lovely, but this one is really special. You have such a glow about you.

Pish-posh MrsMitchell!! ANYONE is allowed to be browsing around here and posting. It just happens to be where the collection of topics that relate to Newlyweds is held. I posted a lot in BWW before I was a bride and I never thought it was wrong. Please don''t think you shouldn''t be nosing around in here! If this the case, then I need to stop lurking in the TTC and preggo threads!! You''re welcome here any time, promise!

This is really the only picture of the getting ready stuff that has just me in it that I actually really like. The color version made the final cut in our parents'' albums from the wedding. All of the ones of me getting my hair done came out sorta wonky because I was ultra aware of the photographer.

Ah. See, when I said I wasn''t a newlywed, I meant I really wasn''t! My photos are not digital.


I had them all scanned, but my old laptop died and I only have one left. Must get round to doing them again! (It isn''t a getting ready photo, so I won''t post it here, but if there''s a venue pic thread, it can go on that one.)

Thank you Clairitek, for the kind welcome! Lurking in the preggo thread is dangerous. When it first appeared, I was in the no kids ever camp. Now, not so much.

This is goofy, but it was the best part of getting ready. We''d just gotten to the hotel and my SIL had put her ipod on. The first song was Ice Cube, "You Can Do It (Put Your Back Into It)". Instinctively, I jumped on the couch and started dancing out the nerves.

This was taken while my mom and best friend were buttoning up my dress. :)
