I just wanted to write a quick post because I just had an awful experience on another wedding website’s boards.
I was experiencing a conflict with my fiance’s friend (my fiance is serving as his best man) because he and his fiance called yesterday to tell us they were thinking of having their wedding one week before ours. Expecting some sympathy or supportive words with how to deal, I was instead met with some pretty harsh critics.
I find Weddingbee to be the most trusted, worthwhile, friendly, honest, wonderful, supportive wedding website out there — and I will never go back to any other wedding website. Thanks to those who run the site, who moderate the blogs, who handle this very classy, and very well done forum.

Hi! And welcome! I think that’s how we get a lot of Hive members….certain sites are less than…*ahem*…friendly. So glad to have you!

I’m sorry about your bad experience. It sounds like a lot of people have been having bad experiences elsewhere and then coming here. Welcome!

I’ve heard a lot about other wedding boards being terrible (especially theknot.com). I am SO glad that I never had an experience like that – weddingbee is the first site I ever came to thank goodness! I’m with you – very thankful for the bee 🙂 I think there is a little sense of family here. Love it!

Welcome to the Hive! I promise, this lovely place is all you’ll ever need from now on.
I hit up the Knot’s boards ONCE and fled immediately because of their terrible layout. I happened upon Weddingbee and haven’t looked back since.
I love this place and I’m happy you do, too. Again, welcome!

Thank you SO MUCH to all of you! I definitely feel so much better now. I actually saw a thread similar to mine here and saw dozens of responses that were exactly what I was hoping to see on the other site — “that sounds like it’s really tough,” or “I’m sorry you’re dealing with that,” — and the hivers followed up with some really kind and gentle suggestions and perspective.
I requested to cancel my membership on the other site within ten minutes!

Welcome! I just want to point out that I started a thread here about literally the exact same scenario you just described not too long ago – one of FI’s groomsmen trying to have their wedding a week before ours when we’d set the date months earlier. The hive totally got it. You’ve come to the right place.

Welcome to the bee! The community here is great, not to mention Mr. Bee and the moderators work really hard to respond quickly on the rare occasion someone does act innapropriately.
