Are you on The Knot as well as the Bee? Why are you on both, and which do you prefer?
As far as myself, I am on both, but I find the folks on the knot to be rude and unsupportive, but I am asking because maybe that has just my experience. What say you???

No i was way to scared to post anything on the knot.

No, just a bee. I don’t care for the Knot’s boards. They’re too confusning to me anyways.

I’m a member of the Knot, but didn’t really go to those boards – just read articles and used their checklist. The boards aren’t very user friendly (or just plain friendly!), and I just love the Bee!

I technically still have an account on the knot, but I haven’t posted since I got chewed out for worrying about my friend and I having the same theme. I didn’t want to stick around long enough to figure out how to delete my account, so I just deleted my post. I’ve heard their local boards are great, but mine wasn’t active.

i have an account on the knot. i like the pics/lists/articles (even though many contradict themselves). as far are the boards, i don’t use them. i’ve looked at them on occasion, but never posted. seems like a lot of people working out wedding frustration or validating what they themselves are doing rather than being open to new ideas & offering helpful suggestions. not always, but a lot of the time people there seem to just be mean & hurtful when they could say their opinion in a much nicer way that wouldn’t be cruel to the poster.

I had an account on TheKnot when FI, and I first got engaged (Dec. ’09), but rarely posted. I haven’t been back there in ages.. I just don’t see the point, as I love the Hive!

I only use the Knot for photo inspiration, more for brides I work with than myself. The boards there are confusing and really unfriendly I think.

used to be a knottie, but after seeing how rude most of the girls are, I came here! (super glad I did)

I only use The Knot for the checklist and personal website. I visit once a week, if that.

@Bellagiobride:I’m both, and i’ve come to realize that the *tone* is very different on the knot. It’s just… if you read it the right way you still get the feedback you need. But for me, I feel like I almost have to “translate,” and it’s tougher for me.
I hate their inspiration stuff, but I loved it when I was “waiting.”
I love the DIY and forum on the bee–like everything about them.
I like the ease of building your own website on the knot.
And for a lot of stuff–I prefer to go to family and/or spreadsheets to keep track of stuff, plan and generally not go insane.

I have a knot account still. I like to see how many days till I marry my man, and I like the checklist, but I dont post on the boards, I find the woman rude, I used to post before I found the bee, I was fed up with the girls and wanted to find somewhere else to be. Im so glad I found the bee!!

I have an account with the Knot but haven’t used it. I can’t post anything, I mean I can post stuff but no one can actually see my posts, I have contacted them and got very rude ppl answering back. So I still have it active because I like to read the arcticles that they have and their videos.
I love the Bee, I’m soo glad I’m here, I can talk with you ladies, I get feedback from you, you can actually see my posts!!! lol… I love being inspired by you and share with you.

I use the knot for the planner, budget, and guest list. I hate the format of the forum.
I come to the bee for forum use.

I created an account on the knot right after FI and I got engaged, but hardly ever visit. Actually, I only visit, whenever the bee is down. The bee is soo much better and user friendly!
