I said this at my wedding. My mother-in-law has adored me ever since. ;)
Probably one of the best pieces of advice I got planning my wedding was to do our photos before the ceremony. I am SO happy we did. It took so much pressure off of coming down the aisle in front of 150 people. If you're not superstitious, DO IT!!
I like this - the 'maids don't all match, but they're all happy b/c they like what they're wearing and b/c of this, the pictures will still turn out fabulous! :)
