In defence of the T-word: I think some of those threads are just stressed-out brides who can’t objectively tell whether something is a dumb idea or not. Sometimes you need someone, even a stranger on weddingbee, to tell you what your fiance might be afraid to tell you right to your face: that’s really tacky. Don’t do it.
Maybe we just need a new word?

oh man- I’m terrified of the “t” word. I’m on a tiny tiny budget but still want to be surrounded by friends and family. People keep saying it’s going to be “t” and I shouldn’t have a wedding at all if I can’t afford a nice one.

Ahem Sister Tattoo! Preach it! lol.
In all seriousness, I agree wholeheartedly. I’m so tired of people telling me my wedding ideas are “tacky.” I decide what is tacky.

Amen Sista! I completely agree. Do what you want for your wedding because at the end of the day if you like it no one elses opinion matters.

yes! my SO and I had a huge conversation about photobooths the other day, and he even dragged in one of his female friends– they both agreed that even photobooths were tacky!! I’d assumed everyone had accepted photobooths as an awesome splurge and a great way to spend our cocktail hour but noooooooooo it’s all too tacky! ugh!

@Miss Tattoo: this post is the awesome. i personally have never used the word in regards to a wedding, and have never wondered about it in regards to mine. i hope to see the word die.
and… “Tacky: the dark evil that sneaks into your bedroom and eats your face at night.” LMAO!!!

@dynamic_duo: I had a candy bar and photobooth. Many people think they are tacky and overdone now! Except my guests cause they didn’t spend 10 months on weddingbee like me :p
I also want to ban “cookie cutter wedding” lol…mine was cookie cutter because that’s all I wanted! Why do I have to defend myself? The theme of my wedding was wedding, and the look I was going for was bridal! Woo!
