I’ve visited The Knot boards, but never the Brides.com boards. Once I found WB, there was no turning back for me. The Knot seems so disorganized, and like some one already posted, their “signatures” clutter everything. If I can give one suggestion to WB, please please please don’t ever give us the option of “siggy’s”. They’re so annoying when they get out of control.

I agree!  I was so flustered when I posted there one time and every response to my question was pure evil!  Then I posted the same question in the hive and got so much helpful, creative advice it was overwhelming. 

Do you think ladies posting on theknot are saying things about us, like, ‘oh those weddingbee boards are so dull, no one’s ripping anyone’s throat out!’?

Never been on Brides.com boards but was on the knot boards for a while until I was getting annoyed that almost no one would agree with me.  Thinking about it they are mean!

Came here about 3 weeks ago and I’m hooked.  Haven’t been back to the knot since… well only for my wedding website.

What’s the deal with other boards?  Too many people?

Yikes!  I never went on those boards.  I came to weddingbee and never looked back.  Now that I’ve been married a couple months now, I feel kind of like a lurker, but I know all the great members probably won’t call me on it.  Hopefully, I can help future brides with their ideas and keep being a lurker.

The knotties can be unnecessarily mean and cliquey at times, I agree.  However, the one thing I like is that they will all someone out if she is being ridiculous or zilla-y, and will often nicely tell someone their opinion of an idea if they don’t like it.  The local boards are much more reasonable than the national boards. 

I posted on Project Wedding for a bit, and I feel like those boards are non-stop affirmation, which is sweet, but counter-productive if you want a real answer.  I’d much rather have some internet strangers tell me my idea/dress/centerpiece is not the best than have my friends and family see me look dumb on my wedding day!  I think WB is a happy medium, where people are supportive and honest.

I’ve never been to the other boards to post, and I’m kinda glad that I haven’t! I can’t imagine being rude to someone I don’t know!

Oh my god, this happened to me, too! I found myself using brides.com, theknot.com and other forums, and some of those ladies were just malicious and put down everyone’s ideas. They thought they were the end-all, be-all of wedding authority, and I finally had to stop posting questions because I was constantly put down. Thank god I found weddingbee! This board has been such a huge help. Positive reinforcement, people!

I never had been to the other wedding boards. I used The Knot a lot for inspiration images (it is great for that), and Project Wedding later when I found it, but I’ve always been on these boards. I kind of feel like the other wedding sites are resources, but Weddingbee is a community. It never would have occurred to me to post there…which I guess is a good thing if they’re as mean as y’all are saying! Yikes!

kittyachi!  i agree with you.  I like to see people fight on those boards.  Those people are people that in real life, you’d never ever associate with.  So their drama is just foreign and entertaining.  I feel bad for about 80% of the significant others of the ladies on that board 😉

Another thing about the knot that drives me insane is that every time a new page loads the stupid Knot TV starts playing and you have to shut it off. Very annoying if you are trying to read posts!

Wow – I’ve never been on either. I’ve been to the Knot, but not the boards. I can’t decide now whether to make sure I never visit, or if I want to go lurk, just to see how bad it is! LOL

@mrscox-lol their poor husbands!! I would do something-whether it’s on there-tell them to stop being mean, and if they don’t stop maybe you could do something else? Post on here? I don’t know. I’m too mean 🙂 haha
