Agree, these are some out-rageous looks.

BUT that said,

I have a feeling this post won’t last long…

Because someone will determine that you could be making fun / mockery… of other’s choices

And that is a BIG No-No here on WBee

As per the TOS

(Just saying this so you aren’t surprised when your topic is closed / disappears)

PS… the first one as crazy as it is for me to say this… doesn’t look that strange to a gal who was married the first time in the 1980s.  BIG was in.  BIG Time !!

@mishagirls79:  True enough…

But whatever comes up on the SEXUAL INTIMACY BOARD doesn’t include photos…

To me that is the big differential…  who’s to say that a Bride here doesn’t admire these looks / copy them / or is them

Example # 4 – A current runway trend (shear bodices) … and altho not necessarily to everyone’s taste isn’t really THAT OUTRAGEOUS

@This Time Round:  I agree! Aside from the veil (or whatever it is), I saw some dresses eerily close to that first one in the late 80s.

@This Time Round:  If you find her post offensive, shouldn’t you just quietly report it? I’m pretty sure the mods would inform someone why their post was removed.

Truthfully, I don’t see anything wrong with this post. She isn’t directly saying “so and so is tacky” or “Wow, have you seen so and so’s dress?! How white trash!”

I don’t think this is offensive. If I wanted like big huge blue balloons at my wedding and someone else thought it was tacky, I wouldn’t mind. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Now if people start badmouthing other people, then yeah that’s not cool. We’re just comparing objects, not people.

I really wish I had a picture of what I wore for my first wedding when I was 20 to share with you.  Good night it was a hot mess.  Said I wanted small princess sleeves and I wanted a cinderella dress.  My aunt made it and she put HUGE sleeves on it.  My bouquet was bigger than I was.  I said no dingle dallies on the veil, and low and behold when it was made stuff was hanging off of it all over the place.  OH and the big glasses to boot!  I laugh at it now.

TO Hyperventilate OK you are right, I could have reported it

(but I haven’t… as I personally am not offended)

BUT I point out to the OP that others might be… figuring I was being the “nice guy” in doing so.

As they say… don’t shoot the messenger.

In that I have also seen past topics tamer than this that have ended up being closed.

All in, I thought I was doing the OP a favour telling her (altho I admit it is just my opinion) … so didn’t expect to get lynched for it.

Why is that happens on WBee, is beyond me.

— — —

On the other hand, inevitably these posts end up with folks picking apart others choices and that is no doubt WHY these things get closed

EDIT TO ADD – the last time a similar topic like this was posted (about a week or so ago) the main point of discussion was the picture that has now been posted in the topic below this reply).  AND that topic ended up being closed, because people made disparaging remarks about the Bride in that photo… and the choices of others in regards to how much skin they CHOSE to reveal at their Weddings.

So ya, topics like these are a slippery slope… with the bodies tending to accumulate at the bottom of the hill pretty quickly (that is all I was pointing out to the OP)

I think it’s perfectly fine to post saying you don’t like a particular dress! If someone’s going to get their knickers in a knot over you not loving their beautiful princess dress, then that’s their problem. I know not everyone on here likes my dress – I’m glad I’ve gotten honest feedback on it! But it doesn’t change my feelings about it one iota.

Personally, I’m not a fan of dresses that are very revealing. I mean, there’s looking sexy, then there’s looking like half the dress is missing. It’s all well and good to want to look sexy for your fiance/husband, but chances are more than just your husband will see you with your breasts hanging out if it’s your wedding day!


Oh, and if anyone is offended by me not liking a particular style of dress…

@mishagirls79:  That first ensemble is all kinds of amazing.

I’ve always thought this Louis Vuitton-themed wedding was pretty incredible.
