December 2010 Weddings

why?

do a lot of the ladies on the etiquette boards seem so mean? or is that just me that feels like that?

Re: why?

  • Not just you. A lot of people say Etiquette is snarkier then Snarky. Couldn't say why...

  • That's how I felt about the WeddingChannel boards- all of them though, not just etiquette, because the same people would comment everywhere. There were some seriously snotty people, who thought their opinions were always right and everyone who disagreed was an idiot.
  • i'm sticking with the Dec. girls from now on!

  • I completely agree.  I often read those boards just to get a good laugh at how ridiculous they treat one another.  It makes me appreciate December that much more!
  • Yes, they can be rather unladylike, ironically....

  • see my post below about lurking - I completely agree!!!  

    Also, the 'correct' way of doing things doesn't always work for everyone.  We each have our own lives, families, quirks, differences and ideas - just like how a traditional cookie-cutter wedding doesn't fit everyone, traditional cookie-cutter etiquette rules don't always apply in all circumstances.

    They're a guide, sure, but let's not play hard and fast by them!

    Where we met - Mount Isa
    a small mining town in the Australian Outback. Neither of us are from there but we both moved there in the second last year of highschool. He was moved next to me in maths class to stop him talking. It didn't work.
  • i agree.... there was also always drama on the Favors board. i just dont get how some people can take themselves so seriously! I stick to this board, and my local for just about all of my questions/concerns/etc!

  • I got in trouble once for defending someone who was being bullied around by one of those nasty brides!  And it is true. The worst one's have been married for years.  Oh well, not here! Yay!

  • I made a post months ago about the CC board and how rude they are.  I can't stand them, though it is amusing to watch them all state their opinions like they're facts.  They all "agree" with each other so they can gang up on people.  And it's funny, because most of them are married and even the old hags are still on here.  I don't know how their husbands deal with them.  They should probably all be featured on Bridezillas.  I laugh because they all say how rude everything is...I bet they do everything perfect and use proper etiquette 24/7 *takes a drink w/pinky up, delicately dabs corners of mouth w/cloth napkin*   All the same ones post on all the boards. 

    There was a post about someone asking about a NYE 2011 wedding, and most of them said how horrible it is, and if so it better be black tie, premium open bar, awesomely awesome food etc.... Yeahhhh, uh, no.  Like you're gonna get that over at your friend's house hanging out NYE.  Fools. They have stupid opinions, let's all stick to the December board!!! lol

    Ok I'm done, lol.  It really gets me going when people are annoyingly rude and think they're better than everyone.

  • It's true that going on the other boards, especially Etiquette, requires thicker skin.

    However, I've never really understood the complaint that many knotties are already married.  After all, those of us who haven't had our weddings yet are basically the blind leading the blind.  It can be very helpful to get advice from brides who have been through their weddings already and know what it's like and what can go wrong. 
  • Ditto.  When I have been married for 3 years, I don't think I'm going to be still posting on TK.  That's just lame.  Don't they have better stuff to do?  That's what Facebook is for.

    Anyhoo, I find lots of etiquette help from Martha Stewart or Emily Post.  

    I stay away from posting on other boards, and you guys are right about the 'gang up' factor.

    There's this one judgy woman on the WI board though and I always post after her judgmental posts because well, someone should! ;-)

    I LOVE THIS BOARD!!!

  • You are right about the favor board being snarky!  I just got angry reading some of these "ladies" opinions on charitable donations in lieu of favors, which I am doing.  Sorry, but I personally don't like the majority of wedding favors that I receive (though I am sure yours are all fab Laughing), and I thought that my donation to children's cancer research would mean more to my guests.  Guess I was wrong!  LOL
  • psuxray- I know!  They hate NYE weddings.  The same ppl post the same comments on any NYE wedding question.  I always try to defend them whenever I see them.  Idk what's wrong with those people or what kind of lavish parties they go to each year.  Personally, I'm always looking for something to do on NYE and so is everybody else I know.  It also really ticks me off when they say they wouldn't go if wasn't a fabulous extravangza.  I am always very touched when a bride and groom invite me to be part of their special day.  Especially after I learned how hard it is to make a guest list.  I consider it an honor to be invited to a wedding, any wedding, regardless of how *fabulous* it is.

    I got flamed on the reception board for having a gap once.  And oh buddy, when they found out I was a NYE bride too they just laid into me!  It became a terrible giant 30+ post thread.  Later on another board I found one of them had created another thread just to tear apart my wedding.  I made sure to leave a lovely note asking them to mind their own business and they weren't invited so not worry about it.  I did get some very nice PMs from other brides apologizing for the rudeness and telling me not worry about it. 

    If you see any nasty NYE threads, holla at me, and I'll be sure to go over and give em' my two cents.  (and send the OP a nice PM).
