sheheartsjay :  What do you mean by tribal? Just that there will be a big group of you?

Are you Native American or an Indigenous Person? If not I would drop the “tribal” theme…..

Confused by what a “tribal” theme is. Your theme is native Americans? WTF?

sheheartsjay :  So it’s basically “Cowboys and Indians” minus the cowboys? And your main decor items are going to be arrows? Yeah, no.

sheheartsjay :   Not sure why everyone is bashing your theme I’ve seen countless “bride tribe” shirts and ideas on pintrest and etsy.  If you like it then that’s all the matters

How about #Shesgettinghitched..not that creative just wanted to post something positive on this thread 🙂

mrsrekraps22 :  I think there’s a big difference between having a shirt that simply says “Bride Tribe” versus having “Tribal” patterns, arrows, and teepees as decor.

I’ve never agreed with the term “bride tribe” and I would try to tread lightly on the whole “tribal” theme. Tribal shouldn’t be a theme, since it’s an appropriated amalgamation of people’s real cultures and history.

mrsrekraps22 :  fortunately/unfortunately people these days are extremely sensitive about cultural appropriation and that’s what the fuss is.  I think it makes us miss out on a lot of fun and gaining an understanding of other cultures.  Frankly I’m guessing this thread will be a shitshow any minute now.  Really there’s nothing wrong with the theme unless she has everyone wear Cherokee war bonnets or something else that is thoroughly symbolic.  Arrows are arrows.  I doubt that matters to many posters, however.

OP, have fun, I’m sure your intentions are good, but it would probably be best to just delete the thread before judgement rains down on you.  No hashtag help from me… I’m not creative in that way and am not into the hashtag thing anyway.

One last thought before OP hopefully deletes this thread**, She is having the bach in USVI.  As we all know from history, thousands of Indigenous Peoples were murdered in the Caribbean from 1492 and on.  She is literally mocking the cultural destruction of a People on their own land.  #DoesntSheGetIt #SheDidntThinkThisThrough

 

**Edit: on second thought, don’t delete this thread.  That way if there are other folks out there wondering if they should don a war bonnet (headress) or have “native” patterned decor for their bach party, or any party for that matter, they will see this thread and think twice.  It’s 2016, y’all.  If you are more concerned about your hashtag than cultural appropriation with all the dialogue and awareness in the media today then you need a serious education. 

I mean what were the B-List ideas?  A plantation themed bach in Savannah?
