You looked really nice, and I know you’re upset about the rude things people said but you have to realize that coreograhped dances in churches, are not everyones cup of tea and when something is that “different” you’re going to have a LOT of opinions on it. So if that’s your style (as in dancing in church), then you’re going to have to accept that most will object to it.

You did look pretty cute though.

I guess it’s human nature- people are most likely to speak up negatively than positvely. Think about store reviews- if there is a bad review, that person is FAR more likely to speard the word/ talk about ones experiences than if it was a positive review. I suppose it’s the same in your case. It sucks, but it is what it is…

And perhaps 1 reason you got little reviews/ compliments here one the bee (as I saw you mention in another post) could have been that people WERE “wrinkling their noses and moving on” instead of posting something negative.

Enjoy YOUR memories of YOUR day, but don’t rely on others to make you feel better about your wedding.

I thought it was adorable and unique!

However, when you post it on a public site then people will comment. I get that you only want to read positive feedback but the internet is hardly the place to accept that. If it bothers you so much, then maybe you shouldn’t keep posting it.

As I’ve read on these boards 100 times, no one will ever care as much about your wedding as you will. If you’re happy with the way your wedding went, then that’s the only thing that matters. Seeking validation from strangers on the internet isn’t going to give you what you’re looking for.

Everyone has different taste – what floats your boat may not float your neighbor’s.

Also, you may have gotten more responses if you had consolidated all of your recaps into one thread instead of posting many threads.

Why not just do one recap? The Bee is pretty stringent about keeping comments civil, but once you’re out on the internet, people are gonna comment. If you’re just looking for people to say nice things, start one thread, enjoy the compliments, have it closed.

If you can’t handle the rude and negative comments, stop posting your pictures and videos online for people to JUDGE. I’m sure the people who attended your wedding had a lovely time, and I’m sure all the off-beat things you did just showed off your personalities that THEY know you for. Asking a bunch of internet people who don’t know you, or anything about who you are, to ‘get’ your obviously very personally stylized wedding is kind of asking for trouble. And you may say you’re not asking people to judge, but your actions speak louder (how many threads has it been now?). I see above that you referenced Thumper, and you’re asking people to not say anything if they don’t have anything nice to say.
Well, don’t ask someone a question if you don’t want to hear their answer (and all of their answer, good or bad)!
I’m not trying to be rude, truly….I’m not. I’m just trying to get through to you that if you are SO sensitive and you have such thin skin, stop trying to look for validation on the internet. Look to your family, your friends, and the rest of those you celebrated with. You know, the people who know you and love you! For someone so insecure, it’s weird that you are opening yourself up to comments from total strangers.
Last thing – you were a STUNNING bride. Like, breathtaking. You remind me of Isla Fisher – both beautiful and cute as a button.

One time in my life, I spent a lot of energy and time trying to get validation from my others and I figured out I was being a bad friend because of it.  You truly have to love yourself first.

I know I already commented on your video in the other  thread but I liked it and I just wanted to share that with you again! I like your unique personailty and you had a great wedding where you got to let that unique personality shine through. I think that’s the most amazing part! I know not everyone liked my wedding either but I don’t care what anyone else said, I worked with my budget and I loved it so that’s all that matters… don’t let anyone bring you down you did a good job!
