@care06:  

I see what you’re saying, and I agree our society is too materialistic. But I don’t have a problem with the contest and I don’t see it as negative… I think it’s intended to be more positive. As in, here ladies, show off your beautiful rings and see which one gets the most votes.

Just because someone’s ring doesn’t win, doesn’t mean it isn’t beautiful or that others don’t appreciate it. And no one’s feelings should get hurt because their ring didn’t get the most votes. My humble opinion.

I don’t see how this is any different from Four Weddings… lol but I haven’t seen the commercial for the ring bling contest yet.

I agree with OP. I don’t get it. Our rings are symbolic and personal.

Sometimes I think wedding shows are stripping the soul out of weddings.  A gown can be beautiful without being a Pnina Tornai, a bride can enjoy her day in a single gown, a ring can be lovely without blinding people from a 100ft away because it’s so massive, and weddings don’t have to rival the rose parade in the number of flowers.  I think television is putting way too much pressure on brides and pushing them to spend way more than they need to for the sake of living up to the ideal being pushed on them.

Hmm. Took a look at the photos, thought that perhaps it’d be a question of larger diamond = higher vote. But it appears more that prettier photo = higher vote.

I agree that we can take it lightly, as we should, but I wouldn’t submit my ring. Not interested in having anyone else tell me what it’s worth.

@care06:  I get what you’re saying and mostly agree with you.  However, the people who post their rings on there have to know that some people might not like their rings.  Just like with Four Weddings.  I personally hate the idea of turning your wedding day into a contest.  They have to know there’s the chance that others won’t like their rings/wedding.

 

I went through and voted “5 stars” for as many rings as I had patience for.  Just cause.

@Cappugcino:  Hear, hear! When planning my wedding, I was appalled at what I was expected to do according to some wedding shows. I raged against that machine and made nearly everything (with the help of bridesmaids and in-laws)– centerpieces, lanterns, bouquets. I’m very proud of how it turned out.
