    How about Advice from Honest Brides. I know it sounds lame, but it precludes anyone from expecting blind validation.

    It wouldn't hurt to change the description of the board, as well.  That would clear up a lot of the confusion that new posters (me, for example) have when checking things out.

    I was one who came to the rescue of a "poor, defenseless bride" when you all were so "mean" to her for laughing about the earrings her FMIL gave her, because I interpreted the purpose of the board to be a place where snarky brides come to complain or vent or whatever.  Once ya'll explained the actual intent of the board and that it used to be called "Advice from Snarky Brides" it all made sense.

    So, even a better description would have saved me some embarrassment.  Not to mention the fact that it was later revealed that the "poor, defenseless bride" I was trying to defend, was just a vendor trying to get hits on her website.  Boy do I feel dumb!

    ETA: quotation marks around the word "mean" ;-)

    No, I like yours better. Even your brain soup has better instincts about minimalist imagery than mine. :) Which makes me think you'll do just fine today!

    ok.. my only concern with "advice from brides" is that it will invite all kinds of repetitive question of the type you all don't like already. It needs to be a name that warns newbies that we will give advice.. but we won't coddle them.

    What about Advice from Wives and Brides?


    And the description could include ... to keep you from being a bridezilla, an attention hoar, or have your friends and family talk about you behind your back.

    NO BS

    Where you'll get blunt, honest advice and opinions on wedding planning and life, with a side of "don't be a tacky moron". For dessert, anal pleasures.

    I lurk quite a bit on here and get a good chuckle from the whiny posts.

    Could it be something more like, "Realistic Advice from Brides"? Or maybe the "Wake Up Call" board?

    Or... you know... LASER CATS

    Come to think of it, I do agree that JUST naming it "Advice From Brides" might invite the stupid. There should be something about "Honest Advice from Brides" or "Truthful Advice" or "Straight Talk" in there.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: New Board Name? : You can type, so you should be able to READ.  I am assuming you are choosing not to read because this has been addressed.  Being tacky is a bad thing.  People will mock them for being tacky.  It is better to have strangers tell you when you're tacky rather than your family mocking you behind your back.

    Don't mock us, Night! Being tacky is a LIFESTYLE CHOICE! Like being goth. Or punk.

    I vote for everything Shazzie says, anytime.  Including her photo of the laser cat.  Can we include that at the top of the board?

    I agree with getting rid of "snarky", I'm bored of that.

    Tacky is as Tacky does.

    So you are saying that if someone asks for an opinion on something that we think is not good, we should just not respond, and let silence be her validation so she goes off and does something stupid that she will later regret, get ridiculed for, or both? What's the point of that. If we can't state our opinions, why would anyone post here asking for opinions? DUH!

    [QUOTE]Im late to this but I dont mind a name change.  I like this board and its sassy-ness. Im not a fan of "Advice from Brides" only because I would just post on Etiquette because they sort of cover the same thing. Peony-- I dont think the term 'bride' only applies to the married girls.  I like some of the ideas people have suggested. I say go for laser cats.

    But your only a bride once you've been married.  Otherwise is it called bride to be
