So I have one of those pregnancy apps on my phone and I sometimes peruse the community when I am bored. So a woman asked for advice on the "relationships" board or something, on where to get a low priced wedding dress for her PPD. Her secret PPD after a courthouse wedding they hid from everyone.
So I stupidly can't help myself and basically C&P'd the PPD post from the Etiquette board.
OH BOY. OOOOOOOHHHHHH BOY.
I got ripped apart, called a dick, told to stop crapping on people, and best of all, told to "Go back to The Knot". Don't I know it's 2017 not 1917?
Then a bunch of ladies basically told her how they did the same and "family and friends will understand".
WHY?!? Where did this come from? This idea that "everyone deserves a big wedding".
Her budget was also only $1500 for the whole thing (ceremony reenactment and all) so I fear for how well her guests will be hosted. It's FINE to have a small budget and wedding but it didn't seem like guest experience was a priority at all.
I feel gross, and angry. I can't believe not a single other person was brave enough to say anything. Last time I give wedding advice anywhere but here!
People reported my comments and the mods deleted it. Of course they lift all the "Oh it's fine to do what you have planned"
