Browsing the Knot boards today, it really struck me that people are abusing hyperbole and are just generally overdramatic. Maybe it's just a tactic to make people read their threads.
I've seen things like:
"HELP! Bridesmaid dress nightmare!" - trying to find purple chiffon dresses
"Bachelorette Party Dilema [sic]" - friends can't go to Vegas
"MAID OF HORROR" - MOH not doing the bride's bidding
These threads never live up to their titles. I keep expecting something really awful, but they're just mundane problems.
I'm also really sick of the word "tacky." It's become a total catch-all.
