I think it should be a personal attack to call something tacky. ^_^

@tinylittlebird:I am goign to have to agree with you.  When I first found this board about 8 months ago, I was so excited to have found somewhere that I can share ideas and get different opinions when i first started planning my wedding.  Since then I have noticed that there is a lot of opinionated people who just want to tell people what to do and how to do it. I understand that some people are asking for advice but I think sometimes some people are taking it too far and jumping to conclusions and just being plain mean.  They may not see it that way but I think they have to separate themselves and ask themselves how they would feel if someone was talking to them that way.

Anyway, I do think that people need to take what is being said with a grain of salt and instead of fighting back, maybe just let it go.  I have noticed that there is just too much drama lately and it makes me a little sad to see.

I agree and I have been wanting to say the same thing! I love coming here for ideas and advice. It should be kept like that.

ha. i think the main problem on this site is that when you frequent it daily, you start to feel like you know each of the other frequent posters, even though someone’s personality on the internet is completely different than in real life at times

I must be missing something, as I very rarely see any drama or inappropriate behavior in the strictly wedding related threads (threads about cash bars notwithstanding.) Drama usually happens in the emotional or waiting forums. So the whole “to each their own!” frame of mind, while an exceptional one to have, doesn’t really apply to the vast majority of drama on these boards.

That’s why I always raise my brow at posters who come into the drama rama threads (again, that seldom have anything to do with the actual wedding planning) and wax poetic about how we’re all just supposed to be having fun and getting tips on wedding details like florists or tapestries or whatever.  You can totally do that on these boards, as threads relating to those things very rarely result in drama.

It’s really really not that hard to avoid drama on here, just hang out on the food, dress, beauty, accessory, honeymoon forums.  You can’t really wander into a “ohmygawdmyFIwenttoaSTRIPCLUB!!!!!!” thread and start complaining about the drama, because you’ve got to expect drama in a thread like that.

Use your common sense.  If you don’t want drama, don’t hang out in places where drama naturally happens.
