I was surprised at how pretty the bridesmaids dresses were and that they wore makeup (gasp!). However, the poor Bates girls had on those ugly prarie things again. But Erin Bates is terribly talented, and Josh isn't a bad singer himself.
Notice they didn't show Anna speaking her vows? I wonder if that's because the word "obey" was in there and they didn't want to offend their tv audience? But Anna & Josh seem to be much more down to earth & realistic than her parents, so I'm hopeful for their children. But how akward (sp?) was that conversation with Jim-Bob. I applaud him for being up front with his son (how many parents really take the time to talk to their kids about sex realistically?), but to have Josh sit in the little kids chair and then give him a book! Yikes. Even Josh seemed uncomfortable. IMO that part really didn't need to be filmed.
It actually seemed like a very nice, simple, family & friends affair, rather than these overblown weddings that are featured now-a-days.
