Don’t feed the troll 🙂
Don’t feed the troll 🙂
Though I am on fairly neutral ground regarding the designer and her dresses, I must agree that flagging was extreme and the wrath the OP has received in regards to her personal opinion, is just as much, if not more, uncalled-for than the statement she made. As I’ve stated, I think some Pnina Tornai designs are gorgeous, while others I wouldn’t be caught dead in. Either way, though the OP did not say it as “eloquently,” I do agree that the price some people pay for some of her designs are way to much for what is actually being purchased. I also feel that some of her dresses are a bit over-embellished, but my style is not for everyone just as their style may not be for me. Either way, our unique opinions should be expressed freely and respected, regardless of dissent. I’m not saying you have to agree, and I am certainly not saying you shouldn’t respond with your own unique opinions, but bashing a person for their statement should never happen, no matter how much you are in agreement or disagreement. Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with stating how much you love or dislike a certain thing (in this case, a dress designer). It’s all about personal preference, and I am sorry, but this world would be boring and insufficient if we all held the same thoughts and ideas.
I do hope we can all agree to disagree and leave the bashing behind us, as there are way too many petty things in life to deal with already. I wish all of you the best, and hope your wedding planning/married life is filled with many joys! Take care!
ok everyone…deep breath…
@ENarcy No, I just started visiting a month ago. I usually avoid negative threads but broke my personal rule by posting. I don’t live by gumdrops and lollipops but I don’t like contributing to negativity either because that benefits no one. Lesson learned.
Honestly, I am always baffled when someone goes out of their way to make negative comments about something so subjective, instead of focusing that energy on something positive for themselves.
Pnina’s are HOT!! I realize they’re not everyone’s cup o’ tea, but I think they’re fantastic!
@Wonderstruck: Oy vay! Really?!
We are all entitled to our opinions; OP included. Flagging was unnecessary, but that’s simply my opinion. Personally, I really could care less if someone created a post stating how much they disliked the designer of my wedding dress or their designs, simply because I would chalk it up to differences in taste, which is more than fine, since none of us are exactly alike, and thus should not think exactly alike. I am a very sensitive person, and find myself easily affected by certain matters, but even this does not make me upset. If you are a Pnina bride or like her designs, that is fine, and regardless of dissent, you should be happy with your choice and/or likes, but ultimately you should respect that others won’t always have the same likes that you do. The OP could have stated her opinions a bit better, but all in all if you felt otherwise, you should have just taken the comments with a grain of salt and stood by your convictions without scrutinizing the OP. Like I’ve said in previous posts within this thread, I feel the reaction from certain posters toward the OP was just as much, if not more uncalled-for than the OP’s initial comment. Let’s restore our dignity Bees, and move on!
I assume she has variety but I don’t think that show is doing her any favors, it leaves a bad trashy taste in my mouth and leaves me to think she isn’t a designer I would ever consider. and her prices are extreme.
I got a Pnina and it’s worth every single penny
Sorry, but I sincerely believe the flagging, or at least the announcing that one flagged a post is unnecessary, and if you read any of my previous posts, you would see that they have been fairly unbiased towards the original post and the thoughts of other posters, aside from this aspect. Saying you flagged a post is just like adding fuel to the fire. I feel it’s just as snarky, but hey, that’s merely my personal opinion. Feel free to think otherwise.
I just don’t understand why anyone would take another person’s comments to heart if they don’t agree with them. Let them state their thoughts. You could easily let it go in one ear and out the other. It’s only offending you (generalized statement), because you let it. And, I’m not asking anyone to “buy into” anything; I’m simply saying that I wouldn’t care if someone made comments about how they didn’t like the designer or designs relative to my wedding dress, because in the end, we can all think what we want, and as long as we are each happy wth our individual choices, then that is all that truly matters. Liked I said, let’s chalk it up to differences in personal preference. After all, that’s exactly what this is really about, regardless of how eloquently we state our opinions.
Pnina dresses are gorgeous and I think It takes a really small person to actually make a post on a WEDDING SITE where other Pnina Brides could have possibly seen the post, and bash the designer. To the OP, do you honestly think when you hit that post button because I’m pretty sure you didnt. The whole argument that people are slinging around about “what happened to expressing your opinions” is bullshit. You can express your opinions all you wan’t but don’t intentionally hurt other people while you do it. I hope nobody honestly thinks that this post was just someone expressing their opinion because there is NO reason anyone should be posting anything that bashes wedding dress designers that brides may have bought their dress from. THAT is tacky.
Uh and to smcopp89, there is nothing wrong with someone stating that they are going to flag a post. At least they are letting the OP know that these kind of posts are not tolerated on wedding bee so that maybe next time the OP may think a little more before posting things that other people may find offensive.
I also am going to flag this post.
@ChocolateApple: More often than not, I see bees flagging posts and stating that they have done so to “stick it” to another poster, which is just as bad as any “unnecessary” comments that may be made, but then again, when you get a bunch of women together there is bound to be some dissent and snarkiness. I stand by my convictions, and don’t penalize anyone for not holding those same thoughts. In the end, that is the same hope I have for all bees; that you may be able to stand by your truths while also giving the freedom to others to express their beliefs and notions. I think you will find in my previous posts to this thread that I did not necessarily agree nor disagree with the OP, and while she could have stated her post in a different manner, she is still entitled to her opinion. I will not apologize for believing in the sanctity of differences. We should all learn to not be so sensitive. Seriously, if you like Pnina’s designs, or anyone’s for that matter, that is wonderful. Be proud of your likes and choices, as they express aspects of who you are, but also learn that your taste does not cater to everyone. And, when you encounter those with thoughts like that of the OP, simply choose to “turn the other cheek,” instead of creating more drama by celebrating the fact that you “flagged a post.” You can flag something if you feel the need to; that is not the problem I have. I simply have a problem with rubbing it in, which is bombarding the OP just as she has accusingly bombarded others.
I do not care to argue, and I do not wish anyone anything except for complete happiness. I am merely expressing my opinions. Disagree or agree; the decision is yours.
So long to all! I do hope we can share ideas with one another on less petty scopes, as I am sure each of you are very creative and intelligent people, with many great tips to lend in the wedding/marriage process and thereafter. Take care!
