Nice article, but I also wish it was more about us and less about the Knotties. Boo!

Just to clarify, was this the article from a whiiiiile ago, or the more recent one where the reporter only wanted to talk to people who HADN'T met anyone from the boards in person? Seems a little more like the older one to me.

By the way, wasn't there also someone writing an article for the NY Times on bachelor parties? I remember somebody asking to interview me for an article on BPs, but I didn't do it because they wanted to print my full name.

The guy interviewed me about a month ago, but the article was just published last weekend.

I like Kelley's idea of voting someone off the boards. I know who my #1 and #2 choices would be.

Voting someone off would be fun.  I also kinda want a full-on throwdown with the Knotties.

or they could use "Bride XYZ, you have been voted off. Please toss your bouquet and leave the reception"

I think they should just put us all in a big ballroom and let us brawl. They wouldn't even have to give us anything to fight about. I see it going something like this:

Bride1: Hi, I'm Bride1.

Bride2: Really? You're Bride1? You BITCH! Back in Dec 2006, you said that my flowers were ugly. DIE!!!

Bride3: Hi, I'm Bride3. What are you two brawling about?

Bride1: OMG, it's Bride3, who called me selfish for spending more than X amount on my wedding!

Bride2: Really? I ALSO spent over X amount on my wedding and I hate Bride3, too!

Bride1: Let's kill her.

Bride4: What's going on, here?

Bride2: Who're you?

Bride4: I'm Bride4.

Bride3: You're that BEE-YOTCH who called me selfish for not inviting kids to my wedding! Die!

Bride1 joins the brawl because SHE didn't invite kids to her wedding, either. Bride2 DID invite kids, so she defends Bride4.

Bride5: Hi everybody - I'm Bride5.

The entire fight stops. Everybody turns in slow-motion to STARE at Bride5, who happened to have just posted a long story about how her parents didn't want to pay for her wedding. Then they all run towards her screaming insults.

Meanwhile, ArtBride and Kelley walk in, see the brawl, and sit down to watch. MsD pokes her head in the doorway, sees the mess, and decides to pretend she was just looking for the restroom. After giggling for a few minutes, ArtBride can't resist getting up and kicking one of the brawling brides, who suddenly all turn on HER...

I have to stop before I get carried away. :)

Well, I'm going to take the time to break up the ass kicking fight and just say that the article is right.  When I got engaged, I was lost.  I had no idea.  I have only brothers so they aren't a help.  My FH is an only child.  My mom hasn't planned any event in her lifetime. (God love her simple self.)  My MOH and I work at seperate locations and talk probably once a week. 

Basically, you guys are my lifesavers.  I had only been in a craft store maybe 5 times in my life before I saw how much everyone on here did DIY. 

You guys are all excited when I am excited about finding a new idea or the perfect flowers.  My non-engaged or in a relationship friends look at me as if I just landed on Mars when I talk about weddings. 

My FH loves every single one of you because instead of asking him a question at 3 AM about chiffon vs taffeta, I'll flip open my laptop and start a thread.  The first 2 weeks of our engagement I was running around like a mad person...HOW do I, tomboy too busy at work to know what tulle is and how it impacts my life on a DAILY basis, plan a wedding for 75 people? 

So, big hugs and thanks to you all.  I get uber excited when one of us finally gets married.  I look at your pics like I'm actually there. 

Oh, and now that I think about it, I have been on other blog sites....don't like them at all so I'll join in on the ass kicking.

I'll take on "cindybin" because I'm a whore for wearing a strapless dress and a sinner because i have alcohol at my wedding.

Then again I think that cindybin would be first to die in this brawl.

Okay, I don't think I have been around long enough to get some references here, but I am cracking up!!! And btw, I started out as a Knottie, and you are all right, they are total drama queens! There should have been more about the brides.com ladies!

I marry the man of my dreams 5/2/09!

I second Mushaboo!!  I love being a brides.com girl, even though I don't post that much.  This community is amazing, and it's great to have a support system like this in the midst of an event that can be very stressful and demanding.  It has become on of my favorite things to look at y'alls wedding photos, and to hear how everything went.  Thanks!!!

I call for hair-pulling, shin-kicking, raging, screaming war on Bride 502, who had the audacity to think that she needed, even deserved, a bigger stone in her ring, and that anyone else who actually accepted the ring that was given to them was an attention seeking whore. 

Seriously though, why do I have to live on the "other" coast...it makes it that much harder to get connected.
