my feelings are not hurt that a stranger said the designer of my wedding dress makes tacky dresses.

@ChocolateApple: “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.”

This, this, this. How does it go over people’s heads that this post was started with ONLY the intention of calling something wedding-related tacky? There is a way to express your opinion with tact and class. This was not it.

@CaptainSpaulding: Exactly. She didn’t even say I think that Pnina Dresses are tacky and super cheap, she made it a generalized statement like everyone think’s they are tacky and she may or may have not realized that she probably made some people a little uncomfortable but for god’s sake when did weddingbee become a place to post dresses and bash those as well as designers? I’ve been disappointed lately to see other brides posting pictures of “ugly” dresses that they think make everyone look frumpy, etc as well as bashing designers and saying things like their dresses are tacky and cheap looking. It’s fine to have your opinions and trust me I have mine too but when you start singling out dresses and designers, you have the potential to really offend some people or possibly make them insecure about their purchase/taste. I just really hope that WB doesn’t turn into one of those websites.

there are some Pnina Tornai dresses that I think I would LOVE to wear (if I won the lottery). I do understand some people’s point of view of some of the dresses maybe being tacky or too over the top, but for MANY brides, that’s their taste, they love extravagant things, just like some brides like incredibly simple things and wearing cowboy boots. Different people have different taste. Would I wear cowboy boots under my wedding dress someday? Heck no, would I wear a see through Pnina Tornai gown? Also heck no. But that’s my taste and my preference. If you don’t like her gowns, don’t wear them, but don’t put other brides down if they do like them. 

Pnina, like many designer’s has a variety of styles to fit different brides preferences. Don’t judge a dress by the label, judge it by the quality and if it is something you love. If it isn’t oh well, find a different one.

Okay so whatever OP is?  What/who is OP btw?  I was not put off at all by this post.  I am in awe of mostly all of pnina’s dresses, and am working out to do her sheer bodice’s justice.  I am a lot different I guess.. this post actually flattered me.  I wish I had already bought one, I’d feel trully blessed because people who feel her sheer bodice’s are trashy are, in my opinion, people who know they cannot or do not have the confidence to pull off wearing one.  Her gowns are totally not for everyone, and so on the other side of that same coin, opinions like those in this post calling her sheer-ness trashy is to be expected.  I’d be admired, as an artsy gal myself, I love the element of surprise – the unexpected.  So to have someone feel negatively is actually a compliment.  It means I have spurned an emotion or reaction in someone.  I wouldn’t want everyone to think my one-of-a-kind bride wedding gowns were always beautiful.  Sometimes, different is beautiful too.  Like she (pnina) said in one of her runway video’s, not everything she creates is meant to be taken seriously.  Some women worry so much about what the in-laws, older folks, yada yada yada are going to say about her dress choices, music, etc.  Then, you have the pnina brides who loves everyone just as much but is/has been, will be unique to who she is and doesn’t let other’s opinions of her decide who she is gonna be at any given point in time.  So to all of those who have bought a pnina gown with a sheer bodice, if you see this… say thank you because you obviously have the confidence to wear it and wear it well!!

@pacifichana:  Pnina, is that you?

Dont have the confidenice to pull it off? Lol, honey no. That old “you’re just jealous” line…again.

Pnina gowns are nothing compared to some of the get ups I wore in art school. That said my whole family couldn’t see um…everything. You can be creative without being tacky.

@pacifichana:  there are plenty of people who can pull it off. Most of those people do not choose to be in front of God and their families with their breasts hanging out and sheer lace down to their ass. For the record, I think these israeli designer dresses girls on here are in love with are equally trashy.

To me, personally, it says “look what my groom gets to sleep with!” which is not the message I was looking to send on my wedding day. Maybe you are– that’s your perogative.

I would also personally think being able to “pull off” looking classy and elegant would be a lot more challenging than looking like I’m wearing lingerie. To me, it lacks self confidence to wear things that scream “I’M SEXY AND DIFFERENT” because in fact that means you are not at all confident in who you are. 

The girls on the show always say “well I’m over the top and I need an over-the-top, sexy dress” to which I say, I’m glad that groom knows what he’s getting. Mine wouldn’t marry someone who would show her underwear to a group of 150 family members. So for me, the entire existence of these dresses is irrelevant.

@Westie:  +1000 I’m also a Pnina bride and my dress wasn’t see through or tacky at all (in my opinion)….and if it was, why should anyone else care.

If you don’t like it, or can’t afford it, or simply don’t care for it, don’t buy it. Find what you like, fall in love with your gown and quit putting down other womens choices and designers creations.

All women deserve to feel like a dream on their day. At whatever price and preference of gown they choose is right for them.

Wow. Why hasn’t this post been closed? It contributes nothing and is snarky.

Very offensive, catty, judgmental, and downright gratuitous.

@SomedayHisBride:  I completely agree. I think it should be closed as well. It isn’t right to judge anyone. I wish all brides a wonderful wedding and an even more wonderful marriage. I am certain whatever you choose to wear you will all be gorgeous and you will knock the cocks off your fiances.

Much love to you all!

@Riddles00:  not all of her dresses are tacky. But her dresses are ridiculously overpriced! You are paying for the name. 

When i stsrted watching SYTTD, and they kept pulling out the same Pnina gown with the see through corset, thats when I pulled out the laptop and went to see if she had any other dresses bc people kept asking for that dress. And she does have some beautiful styles but, I cant justify spendinf that much on a dress.
