- Wedding: December 2009
I have noticed a trend lately on the boards that frustrates me a lot. Of course situations vary person to person, but how many posts have I read lately that have been about nasty bridesmaids or people openly criticizing brides, etc. I just wonder why these things even become an issue. When people tell these horror stories about bridesmaids saying and doing AWFUL things to the bride, I just sit back in awe. Why are they even your bridesmaid, if not only do they treat you like garbage, but you can’t confront them about it? I have known people that have been hard to get along with at one time or another, but they’re not standing with me on my wedding day for goodness sake. And getting so much terrible feedback or criticism about the choices and purchases and DIY projects you’ve spent considerable time and money on – tell naysayers to buzz off!
I just think that this is a good place to vent, but you have to stand up for yourself IRL too! Just like anything, not everyone will have the same opinion, but it’s not their day – it’s for you and your SO. Come here to let off some steam, but stand up for yourself! If we all waffle under the pressure, everyone’s wedding will be the exact same and there will be nothing left to post about. Half the people giving you grief expect weddings to be that one cookie cutter way and haven’t seen a blog or anything creative like the readers here. Chances are, the thing they’re complaining about will be one of the more memorable things at your wedding and something they’d change their minds about.
Enough venting – i like this place and wanted to get that off my chest instead of being snarky on someone’s post. Does anyone know what i’m talking about?
