Over the years, there have been a few topics that consistently generate a fair amount of controversy on our boards. 😉
Here’s a partial list:
- She’s stealing my thunder (friend or family member scheduling a wedding close to yours)
- Strippers and bachelor parties – are they ok?
- Cash bars: are they tacky?
i’ve always wanted to pull together an exhaustive list of topics that burst into flames almost every time they come up… so I thought maybe we could do it together! What are the biggest hot button topics you’ve seen on wedding forums?
ps Please only post the topics! Let’s not actually discuss the topics themselves… or this post could burst into flames too!

Teh gays and their marriages seem to cause spontaneous combustion. I won’t even mention the State of Iowa! 😉

Go, Iowa! 🙂
Other hot topics include:
and other various "You should feel sorry for me" stories! I’m all about the hive hugs, but sometimes it’s like, pick yourself up, you’ll be okay.

I’m still fairly new so I would say for me the ones that has seem the most heated were the "pay for my wedding" and "strippers & bachelor party" posts.
Different people, different strokes. I’m learning to say my piece then walk away.

Believe me, I do too. I’m an extremely opinionated individual that is usually pretty good for saving the craziness to the Fiance.

I concur with everyone above…I’m just anxious to see what everyone says! I haven’t seen some of the "hot button" topics mentioned above, but boy if I do…watch out folks, the liberal’s coming!
Oh and LOl at the Money Dance! That was at a friend’s wedding and it was really weird in a funny awkward sort of way. You could tell my friend was not keen on being passed around to all the fraternity brothers

I agree, gay marriage, "tacky", family issues, and "thunder theft" seem to be the big ones that stick out it my mind. Anything that people have a strong opinion about that they take personally tends to get heated QUICKLY.

I’m surprised this hasn’t shown up already. It seems like every so often people ask if they can include registry information on their invites, Save-The-Date Cards, etc.

Asking money for gifts instead of a registry. In some cultures, it’s normal and expected. In here, not so much.
