This is a purely self-indulgent post: I’m getting married in a couple of weeks, and I started thinking, “Ooh, LOTRO brides!” None of these are wearing white, but hey. Neither am I.
I’m a roleplayer, and many of my characters over time have gotten married (though not many in-game; that’s a wall of emotes that I usually can’t manage). What did your characters wear, if they took the plunge on-screen?
From The Return of the King (as are all quoted passages in italics in this post):
Then the King welcomed his guests, and they alighted; and Elrond surrendered his sceptre, and laid the hand of his daughter in the hand of the King, and together they went up into the High City, and all the stars flowered in the sky. And Aragorn the King Elessar wedded Arwen Undómiel in the City of the Kings upon the day of Midsummer, and the tale of their long waiting and labours was come to fulfillment.
…Sam Gamgee married Rose Cotton in the Spring of 1420 (which was also famous for its weddings), and they came and lived at Bag End. And if Sam thought himself lucky, Frodo knew that he was more lucky himself; for there was not a hobbit in the Shire that was looked after with such care.
At the last when the feast drew to an end Éomer arose and said: ‘Now this is the funeral feast of Théoden the King; but I will speak ere we go of tidings of joy, for he would not grudge that I would do so, since he was ever a father to Éowyn my sister. Hear then all my guests, fair folk of many realms, such have never before been gathered in this hall! Faramir, Steward of Gondor, and Prince of Ithilien, asks that Éowyn Lady of Rohan should be his wife, and she grants it full willing. Therefore they shall be trothplighted before you all.’
Leave a comment if you’d like to know any particular pieces. And one additional comment: mood_happy as an emote? It’s half sweet (as an expression) and half OMG HIDE THE KNIVES.
Tomorrow: a Woman of Angmar, as Seen on the Streets.
