i have heard several bees over time comment about they “left” The Knot to come here and love it here so much better because all the girls on the Knot community boards are SO mean and nasty. Since i found wedding bee first, i just stuck with it because i never had a reason to leave! but my curiosity took me over to the Knot and OMG, i see what everyone was talking about!
i read one post about someone who eloped 4 years ago and wanted to have a “wedding” now. and while i get people can have different opinions on this, they were calling the girl a “troll” and completely bashing her for even thinking of such a thing! i couldn’t resist replying to the user that she should do what she wants and ignore all these snobby girls! i haven’t been back since!

I was on the Knot for a little while. About a week actually. Nearly everyone was rude to me. I found the Bee on accident, and have enjoyed being here. I appreciate the fact that people here can give honest opinions without being snarky.

I really don’t get what is up with that site, and how it’s so different from the bee. It’s like almost every thread turns into an argument! Sometimes it’s funny to just read the drama lol.

Weird I almost wonder if they are fake people. I have never been but the more I read about those boards the more I want to see whats going on!

I used to be on there, for a few months actually. They got so bad I would have to take breaks from the site :/ Then I saw them talking about the rainbows and unicorns of the Wedding Bee and decided to check it out LOL!
They are pretty nasty. I mean, you know me, I’m pretty blunt sometimes, but they take it to a whole new level.

I never thought it was THAT bad. Admittedly, I didn’t spend too much time over there, given the fact that their interface is totally obnoxious. Gives me a headache just looking at it…

I found the weddingbee by accident as well. I’m glad I’ve never actively used The Knot boards, thankfully! That’s totally uncalled for. It sounds like the movie Mean Girls, lol.

I found weddingbee by accident too, I think I was googling something about centerpieces! I have heard horror stories about the Knot, but I’ve never gone there for anything other than to look at pictures!

I never get being mean to voice ones opinion, especially on something as simple as that. Yes, you aren’t supposed to call it a wedding if the wedding already happened, but you can call it “A Celebration of the Marriage of….” So really, does one need to get hostile about that? The person wasn’t saying she was planning to skin someone and wear their ribcage as a hat!
I like to boards on the bee, a lot for support, not so much need to “one up”

@dynamic_duo: I don’t find the knot snotty. Granted, I don’t go there too, too often but one thing I like about it is they’re not afraid to give someone a dose of reality instead of telling them anything they want to do in the name of their “big day” is just fine.
Someone wanting to stage a “wedding” four years after they actually got married? Please.

Yeah i was there for a couple of days …. and I was totally lost at why they take the most horrible thing someone’s posted about them and use it on their signature. that would tend to amp up the snarkiness & creative zinging. I can totally understand wanting to be snarky once in awhile …. but we’re supposed to be helping each other have a beautiful day. (insert rainbows, butterflies, fairies and angelic singing here) lol

@lisa105: I don’t think you can call it a wedding either, but that wasn’t my point. I meant it was the way they were saying things was totally uncalled for! Calling someone a “troll” amongst other really nasty things. One person even told her to jump off a cliff?!! i kid you not. i am sure not every post was like that. in fact i saw some that were not. But the fact that it took me about 5 minutes to find a really nasty one just demonstrated to me that what i have heard other people say about the Knot boards was true to an extent.
Also, i only wrote my comment to that user so i could bring to everyone’s attention how snarky they were being. i was very general about it and said she should wants. not really helping her much i think.
