Time for a new RANT about NOOBIES!!!!

 

Sidenote: this is not to discourage newbies from taking part in the forums but please TAKE PART!!!!

 

So I come on this morning as I do every morning to get caught up on my BDW threads.  I am checking the threads and what do I find.... almost EVERY thread I am checking has the SAME post from the SAME noob OVER and OVER again!!! I almost feel like she went on my subscriptions and clicked every post and didn't READ the thread and just put "thanks for sharing"  

 

Now question... is this a situation where I should be reporting this user?  She changes it up once and awhile "thanks for sharing" "Great idea thanks for sharing" "thanks for sharing, great idea" UGHHHHH I wanted to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Anyone know what happens when you BLOCK a user?!

i ended up blocking a user for the same reason hun... evry thread i had posted she was there with the same sayings as you posted, although i dont know what ended up happening, but all i do know is that she cannot see what threads ive gone to .... nor can it be seen my info and my home page.

 

ok, so this is my opinion if you cant take the time to actually input into the threads and actually state something useful then please save it...i go on here everyday and spend hours on this site trying to plan and help, and yes i do at time say thanx for sharing...like other brides here we are trying to accomplish something here and build on friendships created. so PLEASE if you have nothing to say then dont say anything at all.

Hi Tori,

Great idea starting this thread! I just found it!

I am not sure if you are getting real or silk/real touch flowers for your bridesmaids, but I thought I would share with you what our plan is for centerpieces and bouquets.

Our resort charges crazy money for extra bouquets and from what other brides have said you are better going outside the resort for what you get for the price. So I am getting my bouquet included in the package and bringing an exact photo of what I want. I guess they will do exactly what you show them.

 

Since we are renewing our vows back home and having a AHR, we are pretty sure we are going to do silk bouquets of white calla lilies or orchids for the BM bouquets. Mine will be similar but in red shades. I am going to rent vases from the resort to the right height, place some sand, shells in the bottom and place the bridesmaid bouquets in vases.

 

My sister is a florist who used to have her own flower shop so she has offered to make them. I like your idea of tulle on table, simple yet elegant. Need to save space in the suitcases as those crazy Oot bags are going to take up a fair bit of room!

Oh the decor dilemma .... Our resort does a basic ceremony, dinner and reception set up and then there is a cost for different decor packages.  The basic package includes white chair covers, white linens (at dinner and reception) and that type of stuff.  We can add aisle runner, chair sashes, colour on gazebo or chuppa arch etc.  We have opted for the basic set up package as i did not want to spend upwards of $1000 for decor that I don't even LOVE.  There is only one or 2 elements from each package that I even like.

 

SOOOOOOOOOOO here is what I have decided.  

 

Ceremony

- Shell pomanders on 3.5 ft sheppards hooks to line the aisle 

- no aisle runner

- no additional colour to chuppa

- no chair sashes

- reserved seating signs for parents

 

I am considering doing raffia and starfish but they would have to be pinned to the backs of the chairs and I just don't think it is worth it so I will likely just keep it nice and simple.  I am loving incorporating white into my colours so the white chair covers and white billowing curtains for my arch I think will be perfect!

 

 

Dinner

We are doing a semi private dinner so I do not want a TON of decor.

 

- MR and MRS chair signs for FI and My chairs at dinner

- Reserved seating signs (same as ceremony) for parents

- Possibly using tule (i bought for another project and ended up not using) in our colour to run down the middle of the table

- 4 or so centre pieces on the table

 

I cannot decide whether to use the BM and my bouquet as the centre pieces and save on some cost or do something a little different... I really like height in centrepieces so this is what I came up with let me know what you think

 

(sorry the picture is sideways.... the second is a close up of the shells at the end of the grasses)

Reception

 

- centrepieces on all round tables

- maybe use the sheppard hooks with lanterns around the site of the reception (battery operated tea lights in lanterns)

 

 

I really just want a romantic simple elegant feel and do not want to be lugging a TON of stuff, I already have all my OOT stuff to bring.

 

Let me know what you think and where you think I should maybe add stuff or if you have any ideas!!!!

I figured she was popping up for all of you since we are all basically on the same threads LOL 

 

I was this close to sending her a PM saying "You have reached your 150 posts so I hope this means I will stop seeing the same comment on every thread!"  Than I was afraid someone might tell me to retract the claws LOL  It just urks me...... You are either a really last minute planner in which case you jsut need to dive into everything not waste time on here OR you are just plain RUDE!!!! I didn't HAVE to see any templates when I was first on here..... put in your time for goodness sake!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
