Wedding Bells

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.

An Elf-maid awaits her chosen love, after a year’s betrothal and many decades of courting.

Looking toward the dawn, and her future.

…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.

The pies go THERE. The cakes THERE. The roasts over THERE.


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.’

The Men return from their battles.

A lady of the tall grasses.

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.

      • Meesh! The mantle is called Gwir-Palvais, and is a BoE drop from the Isengard instances. You can find it on the AH for about 2-3g. The circlet is the one from the Rise of Isengard pre-order boxes, in this case, the Circlet of the Westfold.

        And thank you for the Facebook congratulations. We’re thrilled. 🙂

  1. Had to stop and comment; that Rohirrim bride’s stolen my heart. For the first time, that horse circlet not only looks good, but is drop dead gorgeous. Thank you for showing me how to get it to work. 🙂

    “And one additional comment: mood_happy as an emote? It’s half sweet (as an expression) and half OMG HIDE THE KNIVES.”

    This is so, so true. No matter who does it. Holy horses, but that emote? By now, I should know better than to let -anyone- witness it while drinking. 😀
