    I wish you could post a picture… Maybe a paint rendition would work…

    I’m sorry that sour puss ruined your photos 🙁

    Maybe she was really uncomfortable, felt unwell or just photographs poorly?

    Also, one BM looking uninterested does not ruin your photos. It’s unfortunate, but it should only really affect the photos that she’s meant to be the focus of (so if she’s behind the kids or off to the side of you, she’s not the focus in that picture).

    Every issue between a bride and her bridesmaids does not always equate to jealousy, unless she flat out told you that.

     

    Maybe she was uncomfortable. Some are uncomfortable standing in front of crowds with all eyes on them or there could have been something going on with her that she doesn;t care to discuss. You never know. If it’s really bothering you I say invite her over or go out to lunch and talk things out.

    Some people think they have a relaxed pleasant face, and just have what’s called “bitchy resting face”, haha.

    FWIW I think you are reading WAY too much into this, and that you should step away from the wedding pictures now.

    @PetalFace:  My 3 year old flower girl/DH’s goddaughter giggled the whole way up. But my 9 year old brother/ring bearer SCOWLED. Not just up the aisle, but during the ceremony, and in ALL the formal photographs.

    I’m still mad at him(just a little). He knows better! He was raised to BEHAVE better!

    @PetalFace:  You’re photos aren’t ruined and I’m sure it wasn’t intentional….some people are just really not photogenic and it has nothing to do with some clandestine plot to befowl your wedding photos…I mean really…a jealous person over-processes their hair and gets the Miley Cyrus cut the night before, gets a Mom tattoo on her bicept and wears combat boots under the bridesmaid dress….she doesn’t forget to smile in the photos…because in the scheme of evil wedding schemes…that’s pretty weak.

    I had a hard time smiling all the way up the aisle becuse I was trying to remember not to hold my bouquet in front my face and not fall down. I was nervous as heck.

    My BMs smiled throughout the ceremony and for all the pro pics, but when it came to walking dow nthe aisle I don’t have any of my two bridesmaid’s smiling. My mom also wasn’t captured smiling as she walked down. These were not intentional reactions. I think nerves and emotions get the best of some of us the day of.

    Now in your case if you had a blow out with her after the wedding I assume something must have been going on prior to that. If it was, there is your answer on why she was a Mrs. Grumpy McGrumperton.

    I’m not sure why you’re automatically assuming she’s jealous. I did have a brides maid who didn’t smile walking up the aisle and she looks kind of the same way in a lot of the pictures. I also know that she wasn’t feeling very good that day and was kind of uncomfortable. I highly doubt this was intentional.

    @crayfish:  I was going to say the same thing.  Maybe your BM just has a resting bitch face and the photographer just happened to take the picture while she wasn’t smiling.  Or perhaps she nervous and uncomfortable.  Or perhaps she was just channeling her inner Bella Swan.
