If a bride posts a pic of something that you think is ugly do you tell her?




This is kind of a weird question but it's just for fun,
a recent post prompted me to ask
if a bride posts a pic of lets say an ugly wedding dress (like the one on the right) or something that you think is tacky or not cute. do you say something?

or do you believe that beauty is relative, and to each her own.

I would tell her shes crazy maybe... but I love crazy... I don't like it when I see other brides post rude comments about things that a bride has picked to be a part of her wedding, but this is the real world and some people are bitchy... I just think to myself... maybe her cat died today... ;)

Its one thing to say something is not your taste but I despise when people use the word tacky to describe something another person abviously likes enough to pick and use.

sometimes its better to live by the "if you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all" theory. Don't go out of your way just to be rude.  Not everyone has the same taste.

yes I came back to add a 2nd thought but marta beat me to the punch... if I totally think is garbage I say nothing at all...

its always ok to add a little... comment like
"that would look great if it was (this color)"
or
"I would love that without the (whatever you think is eeeeew)"

I agree, with what's been said so far.I actually think it's better not to say anything especially if it may hurt someone. i mean these are our weddings a huge chance to express our personal style, so to each her own! :0)

Most brides on here are pretty nice... But one def. can be get down and dirty about heels... lol haha jk

This is a blog about your wedding. On what you want it to be. So it would be hard to shoot somebody down and tell her, "that is ugly or that looks terrible". I mean who would do that? I can understand some to be out spoken but jeez have a heart lol...

People have similar or different visions of what their wedding should be like. Some range to being more low key to elborate and over the top. Some people like me are cheap and are broke college students and we love to save money! Some like to buy $300 dollar shoes..(i am not sure if someone has done that .....its just an example...lol).........   It doesnt mean their wedding is going to be more fabolous cause of the cost. What makes it fabolous is how you feel about marrying the man you love and the family and friends that surround you in your happiness.

I wouldn't say anything unless she specifically asks for an opinion. Then I only offer what I might change or maybe suggest another option but never knock it. I think offering suggestions is important because I know personally I have my moments when I need someone to tell me I'm crazy. But's that's what my MOH usually does for me.

Well to be honest with you I joined this site to get other brides opinions whether they be good or bad. And I try to write in my blogs what do ya'll think so I know that there may be some out there thaqt may not have the same taste as I do or that can give me a new view of something. I say if you don't like something then yes you should say that but do it very tactfully such as I'm using plastic plates at my wedding someone may not agree and they may say I don't really like the idea of plastic at a wedding, I personally  would rather use China but I think if it works for your wedding go for it.

I'm kind of disappointed in the answers people gave here. I'd hope that if I posted something ugly people would tell me. Because even if I think it's cute, my guests might think it's lame or tacky.

I think there are ways to tastefully tell a bride her ideas might not work the way she hopes for them to.

I agree sort of, i do want people to tell me if they think something looks bad, b/c if they think it chances are someone attending my wedding may also think that.
