Just been reading a story on Walesonline about the woman who was banned from her sons wedding because she wouldn't wear the clothes the bride wanted her to. Outrageous enough..bride sounds a nightmare of vast proportions but seriously...why would mum agree to local media covering this ? Sure won't help things !

Walesonline scout through threads on here every day and use the stories, the woman didn’t go to the press at all. Makes me wary of posting on here tbh

She didn't ask them to, that's a model

The dress is real but she posted it here

Posting anonymously to Mumsnet, she said she was happy when her only son got engaged to a girl he had met through work.

The dress was posted on the thread so they probably lifted it I left the thread but maybe there was one of the mother too or maybe it was a stock photo! It happened a lot and in bigger papers than wales online. That's why people try to be very careful about name changing and adjusting thinks so people in real life can't recognise them.

Yeah as PP said the picture of a woman is a model. I am half tempted to unfollow wales online as the tripe they come out with is shocking , but the other half of me is intrigued to see what they’ll come up with next.

Loose women This morning victoria derbyshire etc etc all lift stories from here nobody actually goes to the papers anymore it is ridiculous. That woman was having an anon rant about her situation and now it is online elsewhere no doubt it will be on a panel discussing it by Monday

They posted a news article recently taken from here, of a woman wanting to know if taking a pee in the shower was normal. I couldn’t help but comment on that one Grin anyone could make a newspaper and just take stories from Mumsnet, it really winds me up lol

Indeed and the poor it is discussed the more likely it is it will get back to those involved making a difficult situation 10X worse now. It's a risk everyone posting here should be aware of!

The woman in the photo is just a random woman they’ve got from their pile of “random women” photos. It’s so ridiculous

Newspapers have been using stories from here for literally years if not a decade or more I'm surprised that you're surprised

I'm just gutted the shitey tabloids didn't quote me advising her to wear a cat-sick yellow dress just to piss Bridezilla off.

Tsk tsk. Why do I bother..... 😉
