are SOOO MEAN!!!
I told my friend and fellow bride-to-be about Weddingbee… and she checked out the boards and told me “Wow, this is such a positive and supportive community. I’m so used to The Knot where the girls are such snarky b*tches”…
So out of curiousity I visited their boards and oh my… they really tear each other a new one, every day. Needless to say I won’t be going back, lol. I love W-Bee!

Can’t help but laugh – I JUST had this conversation with a girlfriend of mine who is engaged. I told her you know, if you ever decide to post on a wedding website forum? I wouldn’t go to the knot….

Yup! I had this conversation with a married friend, too. She told me to stay away from the Knot because they’re bitches. So true! Plus, their website is so slow and has WAY too many video advertisements.

I think this topic has been posted before. But I guess we are all glad we found wedding bee! I used to be on the knot but had to leave when I got attacked because I said how my mother was the host for my wedding shower.

It really depends on which board you visit. The national boards, yeah some members can be snarky, but local boards to seem to be a lot tamer.

Yeah. I take the approach with them like Beetlejuice. I don’t say their name because I don’t want them to appear here and make things bad!

i posted my engagement story there, where i had picked out the ring, and was told it would take 4-6 weeks to get here, so when he proposed a week later, i was completely stunned and after saying yes a few times, i asked ‘wait, is that a real ring?’. fiance, family and friends thought that was hiliarious, but apparently, that made me a greedy, unappreciative b***c.

I came from Offbeat Bride to here, and I think it’s a happy medium between totally over-the-top and prissy girl weddings. I felt a little too boring over there.

Haha, this post amuses me. I had never browsed through the Knot boards before but now I understand! I had always thought a lot of the ideas on there were a little too over the top for me anyway. At least, Weddingbee seems so much more down to earth and the DIY posts always get me excited, and look great too!

The local boards are such a snooze over there. The Milwaukee one, at least. Each topic has like one reply.

I don’t think ALL the gals on the Knot are b!tches, but there seem to be a lot more of them over there than here – that is for sure!

Actually on my month club board there an my local board (where my wedding is actually I dont live there) every girl is so awesome! No snarkiness at all. But I totally know what you mean. . . I’ve seen it. So I only visit the 2. I like it here a lot too

Oh my gosh. I actually went to The Nest over there on the Knot & basically introduced myself as a newly married woman & explained a little bit about myself & the ladies came back with SUCH rude comments. I then came back over here & posted about my HORRIBLE experience & one of the girls from over there actually CAME HERE to Weddingbee & made a new username & everything, called something along the lines of “oldnag” or something, and then was commenting on all of MY old posts, including the one I had posted about them being rude! Needless to say, Mr. Bee then deleted the post I started about The Nest since it got out of hand (and because I told him if need be, to delete it because I didn’t intend for it to get THAT out of hand), and completely blocked her from the site!
Even the administrator over there was SO RUDE. I’m from the south & when I say YALL..I say it & SPELL it as one word…YALL. Even though the “right” way may be y’all. They all got so annoyed that I didn’t put the apostrophee in there & then the stupid administrator edited my post & put the apostrophee in there for me!!!!! And put below it “Sorry, I got annoyed that you didn’t add the apostrophee so I added it for you…HOPE you don’t mind.”
SO SO rude. The ladies here are so super nice & positive but honest when need be. & not snarky like they are. But, it’s okay..we have better things to do rather than wait for something, anything, to be a smarta** at, unlike them.
Sorry, just had to vent. 🙂

@ roxy821 – Why did they attack you for saying that your mom is hosting your wedding shower?
I posted something about attending my friend’s Bachelorette party in Vegas and they tore me a new one, saying that I’m stupid and frivolous for wasting my money. Yikes, they are so damn mean!
@lindsaylee13 – you’re right, everything here on Weddingbee is more down-to-earth and realistic, as opposed to all the over-the-top extravagant ideas over there.
I can’t believe their moderators allow the users to call each other b*tches and bridezillas. Awful!!

@anniebear, typically family shouldn’t host showers as it’s seen as more of a gift grab. Whatever. More and more are having moms, MIL’s, SIL’s or sisters do it now.
