Completely agree with you, those threads tend to get nasty, honestly you might as well be waving a big flag that says ” hey im looking to start a *b**ch fest”. I hate seeing people argue about others not being grateful and how being engaged is about love and the other retaliating with i do love him but i have to love the ring too. WHy cant people just post the classic ” im engaged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =D=D=D”

@JaneyDcat: Its amazing how heated some of these threads get.
I know! A lot of people sure do get worked up over posts that don’t affect them.

It’s a very normal question. Doesn’t bother me in the least.
Honestly, many people view weddings & their associated costs and drama as trivial, yet here we are, lol. To each their own.
The only thing that irks me is that people are supposed to be deep and thoughtful and brooding so much of the time… is it so wrong to indulge in the trivial sometimes? 😉

yes!! the guess my carat size threads are the worst!
I very rarely open threads asking if a ring is too big/too small, or if a bride looks fat in a dress. Because 9 times out of 10 the OP is looking for compliments. The only time I glance is if there are a high number of comments, and then I read it only for the drama factor.

The thing that blows my mind is all the ring “upgrades.” The most important thing about an engagement ring is the engagement that comes with it, not the shiny rock. You can’t upgrade that sentiment. At that point, just be real and ask for a car or something.

LOL. I am guilty of that as well.

Or, “Guess my weight”…WHO CARES!
I’ve always been told, the most disrespectful people are the ones who are never happy with what they have, or what they are given. It’s never good enough for them. Can’t you just be happy with what you have? You’re lucky to have what you have, than to have nothing at all.
Be thankful for that. Some people would love to have that relationship, to be in love….then you got the girls complaining about everything…and over a ring. It’s just a symbol. Is that ring really going to make or break how you feel about your man? If so, you are materialistic. I love my Fiance…even if he didn’t put a diamond on my finger and we just got bands and got married. I have him, that’s all that matters. Not the size of my diamond.

I think this could be said about a lot of things that are posted here. There are more important things that which dress looks better on someone. But this is a wedding forum!

I’m not surprised. I personally find that WB nurtures a lot of unhealthy behavior – stone sizes and waiting. just a bunch of women justifying each other’s ridiculous tendencies.

What bothers me is that sometimes it seems like they don’t even take a minute to relish the fact that they are (ostensibly?) about to marry the man they love. If the relationship doesn’t work, no amount of carats is going to change that.
I guess I just wish people would take a few minutes to enjoy before diving straight in to the myriad wedding pissing contests. The ring is not the point, and if it was as much as could be afforded and you weren’t willing to compromise by going the CZ/moissy/colored gemstone route, then it pretty much is what it could be. Anyone who’s going to mock someone for having less money isn’t worth impressing anyway.

I think this is a product of the information age. I never would have thought of that if the internet didn’t exist.

I thought my ring was huge until people on the WB complained about their rings that were bigger than mine were too small.

I once called out a size 2 woman for starting a thread claiming that she was too fat to be a pretty bride.
I’m a size 18…so when I see someone who’s a 2 whine and complain that she’s a whale, well yeah….I get a little uppity.
**At the end of the thread we all kissed and made up and decided no woman truly loves her body 100%…but we need to all make peace with that, I guess.

I don’t think it’s always to show off.
