I feel better just knowing that not everyone feels the way they seem to. I’m liking this site already. And the disclaimer of wanting Brides to keep it friendly!

This site isn’t always rainbows and unicorns but most of the time constructive “criticism” is given. 🙂 I enjoy coming here. It has become part of my daily routine! lol

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: I like honesty but not the ‘blunt honesty’ they seem to have on that site. I know not everyone has the same opinions and this isn’t the ‘perfect happy go lucky site of no drama’ but it’s nicer. I’m a happy person so I try to keep things light.

OMG! I can’t believe someone else had problems with theknot. I thought it was just me. Those ladies are the bitchiest people I have ever met in my life. I have been attacked SO many times on that board, more then I can count.  I can’t post anything because all I get are rude comments and answers. I feel like those boards are like a high school clique, and only a select few can ‘join.’ I am sooooo beyond happy I found this website. Everyone is so understanding, non judgemental, and helpful.

Once I said ‘soon-to-be fiance’ and you would not believe what they were saying back to me. They were calling me stupid, dumb, immature…blah blah blah, because they don’t like that word. You wouldn’t believe what things they were saying. I wish I had the thread so I could post it. Being on that board made me so mad all the time because of how rude they were to me.

@Mrs.Vowrenewal: just because they disagreed with you, doesn’t mean they hate their lives lol. Sure, they weren’t all rainbows and butterflies and names got called or whatever, (ya I read the threads) but they were all trying to give you GOOD advice.

@Bostonsmom: There is a difference between giving advice and attacking someone. Everytime I posted I was attacked. Even after I was going to tell

Personally, I’ve posted maybe three times total there and the first response I had to a question about venues was way too bitchy for my taste. I understand witty responses or even a heated response to a very debatable topic, but bitching about a general question is just uncalled for in my book. I love the WB because people here are polite and courteous, even when when we’re not all in agreement. I think the people who post on the knot just forget how good it feels to just be nice and kind to others.

I stopped going there for two reasons. One, half the posts for quiet a few days was complaining about the other boards and causing these ramdom fights. (was funny, but annoying after a while)

The other was because I was very distracted for about a week, and because I used improper grammar and a couple spelling mistakes I got called a “14 yr old troll” and got absolutly no advice because they “couldnt be bothered to read” the post. Yet they could be bothered to point out every mistake I made while writting.

I admit, I have pretty poor writting skills. But on top of that I have two kids and only get on here for nap time. I have to be quick and to the point. The worst was when I apologised, citing I was distracted and making a joke about “mommy brain”. I never thought that it would stir up TWO pages of angry people. It was a joke. Really!!

I have gotten 99% appropriate responces here. I get alot of opinions that go againct what I think/thought, but never usually “B***chy”. More constructive, funny, and even blunt. But never picking on ppl.

I’ve had both good experiences there and bad as well.  I usually just post to my local thread and the budgets brides thread. 

The thing I like there are the pictures of ideas.  I find it easier to find ideas there than here.

However, I love that there are a million boards over here to post to and everyone is nicer.  They are more likely to give you a “yes or no” answer without cutting you and your wedding down.  I mean if I ask “do these colors look ok together” I expect yes or no because….. not “Are you freaking insane.  Your wedding will look like a circus and people will make fun of you and your Maid/Matron of Honor won’t show and your Fiance will stand you up at the altar….”

I was on the knot once upon a time…. I posted on their boards if anyone knew about an affordable photographer (I’m from Alberta and we are visiting… thought it’d be nice to get our engagements done there) well I got nothing but hate and rudeness… I put in New York and accidently forgot the ‘city’ part of it, even with constant apologizing they kept going and were terribly rude. Bee for the win 😉
