Just wanted to let my fellow Disney Brides (and the moderators) know that we are being made fun of by the girls that are just "too cool for their own good" on the Married Life board of the Nest dot com. :rotfl2: They are talking about coming over here to start trouble...please ignore them...they have no lives so they are judging us...sad, I know!!!

Today is mine AND dh's anniversary...we usually go to WDW for the week...but with our little prince being only 2 months old, we had to miss it this year!!!:sad1: Please send happy Disney-vibes and Pixie Dust...maybe he will take me shopping at the Disney Store....

Really, any specific thread we should know about? I had a quick glance and they seem to be very judgemental!

This already has happened. Look at the post "Did you get this PM" Too bad people have to be like this.

A very Happy Anniversary! Congratualations on your little.

There were MANY threads on there all day yesterday! Me and 2 other Dis Brides were trying to keep the peace,:hippie: but those girls are vicious!!! One girl had never even been to WDW (or DL for that matter)!! Poor, deprived girls, they are!!!

It must be the same people and they are members on both boards... otherwise how did yesterday become the next WWIII? Nothing out of the ordinary happened yesterday and out of all my time here on this board-- I have never seen such in my life.

Happy planning everyone.... lets continue in happiness:grouphug: (im sure this very statement will be picked apart-- but I dont know those people and I dont answer to them...so let them have their behavior and we can have ours-- just pretend we never knew they existed. Life was much better before insecure low-life people started coming around)

I missed all the "fun" last night...but here's my take on what's been going on...

Many of the posters on the knot have a preconceived notion of what a Disney wedding really is. It shouldn't be surprising since many brides here have had to deal with those same misconceptions from family members.

It's called ignorance (as defined by most common dictionaries)...they have a severe lack of information and knowledge (and IMO imagination...but that's beside the point;) ).

However WE know that Disney weddings can be classy and timeless or casual and whimsical...the thing is...we have had the kind of wedding WE want!!!

Don't let them bother you.

To be honest, I was bothered by some of the ring comments (and if any of them had posted a pic of my ring, I would have reported it quickly as a violation of copyright). My DH picked my ring out. Someone on that board mistakenly called it a red heart shaped diamond :rotfl: when it is actually a ruby. This was a ring he picked with his own heart and thoughts. To question the shape, color, and style of his gift would be the ultimate in tacky.

They are proving what many people think about brides...that they are OCD and quickly turn to bridezillas!:rotfl:

Let it roll off your back ladies! Be the classy brides I know ALL of us are and rise above the fray.

Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said..."No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.";) :hug:

I was extremely peeved by the whole ring thing. I noticed it when I got a quick glance at the board. Did they post a picture of your ring? I saw someones ring on there from here (the ring with the heart). We aren't exactly dealing with classy people here, obviously deprived women who either haven't been to disney world or haven't fallen in love and are bitter! Don't you let them bring you down! :sad2: It's all jealousy, remember that too. It doesn't matter what the ring looks like as long as you adore it and it's from your DF, that's all that matters! :)

I agree. I believe those were the same ones that laughed at the engagement rink pic I posted showing what I got for my fiancee. They told me back in Oct that don't be surprised if she says no and laughs in your face if you give her "that thing", which by the way was the exact engagement ring she wanted.

Thanks. We actually went into the store I got it from to look for a new watch for myself and she started looking and engagement rings and pointed that one out to me and said that is the one she wanted. While she was at another store in the mall, I ducked away and went back and got it along with the wedding band.

You should have seen her face when I gave the engagement ring to her. She has no idea that I also got the matching wedding band so I can't wait until our wedding day to see her reaction again.

Yep. It was back in October. It got to a point that I asked a moderator to delete the post because the attacks her getting pretty bad. I originally just brushed it off, but they kept making more and more fun of it. I think one of them actually said that unless it's 4 ctw or more forget it, so that shows you where there priorities are at. They were just a couple of people trolling on here and not anyone that is usually on this board.

Wow - I feel sorry for people that are so materialistic. Anyone who puts that much stock into material goods, is obviously covering up for the more important things (love, kindness, support, etc.)

The same co-worker who said she's throw her ring at her then-boyfriend's head if it was under 2 carats tries to pretend that her boyfriend's bar-going, video-game playing ways don't bother her when she's missing him. I mean really, what's more important?

Just what's true and truly felt. Nothing else really matters. :lovestruc

i think it's a cool ring. now a days i think women want rings that were popular in the 20's and that ring is definitely reprisentative of that era. i for the longest time thought my great-grandmother's ring from 1910 was gorgeous (it has fillagree on the side and it is probably a 0.5 carat diamond in a bezel setting).

i've already told my boyfriend that if we get married some day that i want my grandmother's tiffany ring from the 1940's (not because it's tiffany's, i could seriously care less about that, but because it means a lot to me to have a family heirloom.) i think it's probably 0.6 carat only, but it's gorgeous, sparkly, low set, and in yellow gold (which is unusual for a tiffany engagement ring, they actually only made yellow gold rings during wwii because it was said to be unpatriotic to have a platinum ring.)

i feel like the only thing that matters to people now is bigger is better. personally i would rather have a home and not be in debt than to have my boyfriend buy me a 200,000$ ring because i needed a 4 carat piece of junk.

ps. here's what my ring will look like (i took this from some auction website online, so it's not mine, but it looks exactly like it). it's not anything special to look at, but i think it's gorgeous and very meaningful to me.

I really like it and so does my fiancee. I agree that we would rather have a house then a $20,000 ring.

No, they didn't steal the photo of my ring. My proposal story is one I will cherish forever...it was not as extravagant as many I've heard on here...but it's mine, you know?;) My DH was nervous and the things he said were so cute!:rotfl: When he told me WHY he picked the ring he did (he had been looking for a natural alexandrite ring) well...who was I to question his choice?:love: :cloud9:

The ring they did post, and make comments on...well...let's just say if they knew anything about wordly traditions, they would have known that ring was a variation/customization of a claddagh ring (a traditional Irish wedding ring). I thought the ring was very unusual and quite stunning. And that girls DF went to great measures to make that ring into something very special (I think he had her grandmothers diamond put into it).

Hmm.... I teach seven year old children who have better values than those "women".

If these people have nothing better to do with their lives than to try and create misery for other people, or to make themselves feel good by attacking other people to try to make them feel bad, then the only emotion I have for them is pity. Pure pity. I see better behaviour on the playground.

I have been lurking on this board because my best friend is getting married soon, and we have been getting ideas from this forum. Please don't let bitter, petty people make you feel bad. They are obviously not happy with their own lives so they have to pretend to be superior. Klassy, indeed!

I have enjoyed all the beautiful Disney weddings, and I wish I had been a Disney addict when I got married!:)

You know it scares me to think that these type of immature people have children of their own. What kinds of examples do they set for their children if they are making fun of people they do not even know? I think a wedding is a very personal thing. I chose to have a WDW wedding b/c Disney had a very special place for me and my father. As a little girl, we went to every Disney movie in theaters. He bought me every disney movie ever made. When we walked into the parks his face would light up!! When I got engaged it was his idea for me to get married in disney. When he passed away I knew disney was were we were going to be married it was very special to me for these reasons. I'm sure every girl on here has her own special reason for a disney wedding and I am very hurt that anyone would try to make us feel "abnormal" for wanting a disney wedding!!!

I believe in Karma :hippie: ...they'll eventually get what's coming to them. And I've always thought that your sig photo was adorable! It's so cute with Mickey and Minnie covering their eyes, and you and your husband kissing...it's so cute! Don't let those girls get you down...don't let them get their way. In fact, I don't even think those girls deserve as much attention as we've been giving them!

Yes you're right. I just showed my Husband the threads and he was of the opinion that there's no point in even reading them because all they can talk is carp.
He suggests they be brave and post a photo of themselves on their wedding days and let the people judge.

Insecure they must be.
I joined both forums and made a couple of complaints along with their user names.

If they posted any of your pictures - to be REALLY mean, you could always change the picture links to something naughty ;) (obviously, change your links to the right picture)

The only problem would be that if someone's quoted your pictures, the link will stay around here too.

Happens all the time when people hotlink stuff they're not supposed to - you see some random image that's like OH DEAR *** :p

I skimmed these threads that are being discussed and this is my one and only thing I want to say:

THANK YOU FELLOW DIS'SERS and BOARD MODERATORS! :thumbsup2

All of you make this place somewhere exciting and fun to hang out and talk freely with people who care about you and your happiness! ;)

We have fabulous moderators who would never even dream of letting anything like those threads happen. And we have amazing fellow friends (dis'sers) that would never even dream of trying to hurt another's feelings like that.

What a great accomplishment for us to be able to say that we are better than that and probably lead happier lives because of it. We all are happy and caring about one another......sad that they can't say the same! :wizard:

Here's one for their boards to trash:

Instead of getting upset, let's just send them some pixie dust in hopes that they can feel the magic of what is your own wedding day, regardless of it being at the Ritz or right in the middle of the most magical place on Earth! :wizard:

Every wedding is a beautiful wedding, not because of the location, the guests (we love mickey and minnie! :goodvibes ), or the food............

but because of the love the bride and groom share! :love:

I am proud to say that I am happy for each and every bride who can look past the "details" and "the my wedding is better because ______", because after all.........it all starts with a dream your heart makes! Our dreams just happened to be Disney! :goodvibes :wizard:

I know it stinks that they are ripping apart our dreams, but we are only giving them what the want ....a rise outta us.

I read the posts & wanted to respond, but I think they purposly do that to get people going so they can have some fun...Like children.

I think it was mean, but I refuse to play into them....let them tear into me....their comments mean as much to me as the business my dog does on the grass:lmao:

I am more than comfortable planning, helping, consulting, admitting & absolutly LOVING DFTW!!!

Dont let them get to you guys....we're all better than that:woohoo:

Look how cinderella handled her Wicked stepmother & stepsister.............with class:cheer2:

Hey fellow Princesses - it should just make us feel more like Cinderella to have all these stepsisters tearing at our beads. ;)

If it makes you feel any better, Disney Brides, for every detractor, there are five people who are wishin', dreamin' and hopin' to follow in your footsteps. It's your posts that inspire me. They help me keep my dream of Disney wedding alive in the tougher moments. I don't know if I could keep saving and stay on track without the inspiration from these boards. When I finally have a pic of me and my prince in front of the Castle, I'll have you all to thank.
