    When I think something is ridiculous or too drama filled, I usually just refrain from commenting or even reading it.  If it isn’t my style, but is still cool, then I just say that.  The people here have amazing ideas, and I have gotten a lot of inspiration from them!  I love that there is something for everyone here.

    If I don’t like someone’s dress I usually try to tell them what it is about the dress that I don’t like and say “but that’s just my opinion”.  I don’t usually hate an entire dress.  I just might dislike a corset back or ruffled layers or something like that.

    I’m always honest, except when it comes to dresses.  If I don’t like a dress, I won’t respond.  When it comes to anything else though, I give my true opinion whether it is positive or negative.  Isn’t that the whole point of WB??  Having people help you plan your wedding and wade through all the emotional issues/ decisions?  If everyone just said oh don’t worry, you are wonderful, they wouldn’t be any help.

    There’s certain boards and certain threads I avoid because I don’t want to honestly share my views.

    If my comment isnt a postive one or following up with a constructive criticism. like i.e have you tried.. blah blah blah.

    If its purely negative. Im not going to comment. I dont need to add any more negativity in this world than there is already  Just because my taste is differant to someone else why should I put them down? Everyone is unique and they might actually love their idea and worked hard for it. And plus its the unique and totally differant ideas that inspire me.

    I’m honest when I think it’s constructive criticism. If I hated someones dress I wouldn’t comment at all.

    I either try to find something that I like about the post/idea and say only that, or I avoid it all together. For example, someone has a dress that I don’t really care for: I may say that dress is beautiful (it can be pretty even if it’s not my style), or I’ll comment on the detail in the dress that I do like. If I don’t like anything, then I will not post.

    i try to express my negatives gently, but if I see something I really don’t like, then I refrain…

    I’ll say what I think, positive or negative, but I’m really careful about the way I say it…

    Its someone’s special memory in the making… why ruin it with nastyness?

    So far, I just refrain from commenting unless I like something; as I’m on here more often, I’ll probably become more comfortable expressing negative opinions gently, and offering constructive criticism.  As a new member, I am still second-guessing my own opinions, so I’m not about to try to change someone else’s 🙂

    Honesty is the best policy. If I have something good and constructive to say, I’ll say it. Otherwise I don’t respond. It’s not like weddings need any more drama, haha.

    Oh there have been plenty of things that I’ve read and either not agreed with, or not felt the need to comment!  Everyone is going to have their own beliefs, ideals, goals, and thoughts, and I respect that, and keep my own opinions to myself!  If I love something, I’ll def comment on it!  🙂
