- Wedding: May 2014
Hello there, beautiful ladies!
I wasn’t sure where to really begin my first post…I tried finding an Introduction-type subforum, but got a little lost so I’m just going to start here if this is okay with everyone. (And moderators if you need to move it, by all means, no problem!)
I worded my title here with “Cowering in nervousness” because my first (and only) post on the OTHER website (begins with “The” and rhymes with “Snot”!) I felt I was being ganged up on. I asked a simple question on a Jack&Jill, and I got torn apart and called “impolite”, “i’ll-mannered”, “money hungry”, and “downright rude” and “distasteful.” I know that many, many brides and people in general highly frown upon such parties to help fund weddings, and while I definitely see where it goes against “proper etiquette”, I never felt more singled-out and bullied before in my life on an online forum. Stag parties for men and Jack&Jills are so common that they’re almost expected around here where I live, (in Connecticut on the Massachusetts border) that to me, I personally never saw them as tacky or rude. With that being said, I just wanted to introduce myself.
I’ve been engaged since July 2012, and the wedding is May 31, 2014. I’ve known my fiance for six years, and we’ve been together almost three years. I have so many questions to ask that I’m not sure whether to post them separately, together, or in here, haha. I’m so new to wedding forums, but I highly doubt I will return to “The SNOT” after being completely degraded over there.
If anyone can give me some advice on where I can post my questions, or if I should post them separately or together, that’d be really appreciated! I just don’t want anyone to get angry with me should I post in the wrong place. And I’m super-scared of being attacked here also.
I’m going to procede with caution, please don’t take that the wrong way, but I am only doing this because I haven’t lurked around here enough to see the demeanor of everybody…and also because I heard brides from The SNOT have a tendancy to come over here under the guise of somebody else and flame people.
So hello ladies, once again! And I look forward to being in an open-minded and friendly community where I can really “be myself” without the fear of being ganged up on.
Have a great day! 🙂
