May 2013 Weddings

Welcome May 2013 Brides & Grooms! Rules/Regs and advice from May 2012!

Welcome to the May 2013 Brides board!
Here’s some friendly rules/regs for us to stick to so that we can make this a fun and easy board to participate in!

Keep it clean & respectable
Of course we all are okay with some profanity in conversation and that wouldn’t cause you to be banned, but we are going to ban you if you’re malicious towards another user. Personal attacks of any kind are unacceptable, so please be mindful of the way you address others. Please be considerate to others and refrain from responding to a post if your answer could be rude, hateful, or harassing towards another member. *Be kind and respectul with your wording*

Be careful out there.

We know you are excited to share all of your news, whether it’s on our boards, by posting your blog or via other personal websites. It’s still a public forum, however, so make sure you trust those you are giving personal info to.

No soliciting.

There are some incredibly talented knotties in our community with great ideas, but our boards are here for members to share ideas and hold discussions without feeling like they are being bombarded by promotions and solicitations. This applies to all sorts of businesses - photographers, graphic designers, Etsy shops, etc.

No posts about your business

If a member asks for a business recommendation, you cannot respond with your business. In your signature, you cannot mention your business whatsoever, or link to it. 
If you are unsure about what's allowed (this can be confusing), just follow one general rule: other members should not be able to guess that you are a vendor of any sort. 

No collecting, storing or posting personal other members’ personal information.

Regardless of what was shared by another member, you may not repost their names (unless they’ve divulged this within the board themselves already), photos or any other identifying information. Invading the privacy of another member will result in an immediate termination of your account.

Let’s keep this a happy place. 

While we have admins and mods, we understand that not every post that violates our rules will be caught. This is why we rely on you all to report posts you think are inappropriate. If your posts are reported by a large number of distinct users or are reported your account will be deactivated. This means you might be banned for something because your cumulative posting record has shown that you consistently contribute to a negative environment in the community. 

All posts are subject to review by The Knot administrators.

We reserve the right to remove or edit any posts at our sole discretion. Any posts that are contributing to a negative and threatening atmosphere on the boards will be removed and may result in a suspension or termination of your posting rights.

Breaking any of these rules may result in deleted posts or the suspension of your posting rights. If you would like to report an issue please contact your board moderator (SSaltzman87) or email [email protected]

Try to book everything you can in advance so that you aren't trying to find something once it gets closer. 

Do your research on your vendors. Shop around. Don't settle 

Enjoy planning and don't stress over things it will be okay. 

Plan for unexpected costs the closer it gets!!! Things will come up.

Don't think you exempt from wedding drama.... because your not :(  Be prepared for BM's dropping out, disagreements, rsvp drama etc

Try to make some non-wedding time with your FI. Make a date once a week/month/whatever where wedding talk is off limits! You'll both be glad for the break and it will remind you WHY you're going through all this stress!!

Plan for life not just the wedding....plan to have no time to wedding plan the closer you get.

Choose people who are reliable...who you can trust and know will be there for you no matter what. I lost a lot of people i thought were real friends... people who were selfish and determined to make my day about them with all of their obsurd the end its about you and your fiance...not everyone else.

Look at tons and tons of pictures and don't decide anything too early. Make sure you've considered a lot of options. Once you make the decision, try to stick to it! Otherwise, you'll drive yourself crazy changing your mind.
