Done with every forum except BDW!!

Recommended Posts

Why is every wedding planning forum out there nasty and negative?!? Shouldn't this be a positive experience?!?

 

 

I'm so done with every forum except for this one. People are rude, and dictate etiquette that I've never heard of, call me selfish for asking my guests to pay their own effing travel expenses. Where the hell does it say that we should pay for an inside cabin for every guest (cruise wedding) and two nights and travel (destination wedding)??

 

 

And it wasn't even a bride that did this, it was some MOB/FOB (not sure) poking their nose into a conversation that had nothing to do with travel expenses!! calling every bride on the forum selfish and "needing an eye-opener" for asking guests to travel at their own expense!!!

 

 

Ugh, I am so disgusted with every wedding planning forum out there except for BDW. Thank goodness I found this place - there is actually positivity, intelligence and support!! Thank you to the administration for keeping this place running. you ladies rock :-)

very true. I just am so blown away by how NASTY some people can be. I have been planning every friggin aspect of my wedding based on how to make it the best vacation possible for my guests. Never once have I said "it's MY day." Wedding Etiquette is subjective, but general manners, kindness and compassion are not.

 

Thanks again for having all of us here, Tammy!! I think most of us would say that we would have no idea what we were doing without BDW.

Yup, so true.  I would have been completely lost!  And while different perspectives are welcome here, downright uncalled for comments aren't tolerated.  Happy planning :)

I couldn't agree more with this!!  I made the mistake of attempting to join a Knot forum and the women were just viscous, I couldn't believe it!  There was actually a disclaimer in the rules before you join to understand that they allow this snark to go on, and if you're easily offended YOU should be the one to leave blink.gif  Not cool IMO.

I absolutely love this forum, it has been nothing but helpful so far and I know it will be such a  treasure in my next year of planning!  I'm so thankful that everyone on here is so helpful and actually has there eye on the point of this forum:  to share helpful info, not to be snarky and b*tchy when someone asks a questions. 

Cheers to all of you!

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
