i’ve never actually been a knottie myself, but i have checked out some topics just because people have talked about them, and i completely agree 😛

I never posted on their boards but I have heard the same thing from others.

Welcome MissJay! So glad you are here!

I tried to look at the message boards on The Knot, but they are not very organized and often, women post and don’t get responses. In my short time at The Knot, it was clear that it could NOT compare to WB.

Glad you’re here and you feel everyone is welcoming. I’ve never been a knottie but I am so comfortable at weddingbee – I see no reason to switch!

I don’t like the knot in general.  Even the main website is too much.  It stressed me out when they sent me all those emails about what I should be doing.

I like the knot, but I only stick to my club board, where it’s known to be a lot less snarky.

I found the knot boards semi helpful for getting local vendor reviews when I had just started researching stuff and my local board was pretty welcoming and helpful. However, I prefer the ‘Bee for everything else and haven’t been back there in months!

I used theknot.com for my wedding website and to help me out with their budgeting tool. I think they have some great tools, and I also like the local vendor boards (i wish the ‘bee had vendor boards when i was first engaged!). But the boards? meh. not so much. It all seemed really impersonal and a little snarky. 

I like that at the ‘bee it feels like family. I know a lot of people on here and they know me. I actually believe that people are who they say they are and not a 14 year old boy on the computer for kicks (mostly. sometimes there are trolly posts but those aren’t too hard to spot). 

I also like how involved mr. and mrs. bee are. This feels like OUR website because they actually care what we think and ask for suggestions (and then listen to suggestions). At the knot it just seems like one big corporate deal. Like if I had an issue… I am 99% sure I could email Mr. Bee and he would get back to me. I wouldn’t know WHO to email if I had an issue at theknot and even if I figured it out it’d prob be some 20 year old intern who is paid to sit and write all day “we appreciate your feedback and we are constantly striving to improve our website to meet our visitors’ needs. have a nice day!”

Hi All 🙂

 

I had a similar experience – I joined The Knot as I read that it is one of the top wedding sites.  But, on looking through some of the threads, the amount of negative & bitchy comments was huge!  Some were really nasty just for the sake of it, which is a real shame.

 

Glad I’ve found a nice one in Wedding Bee!

Glad you’re here MissJay!!! Laughing

I thought the knot’s website, in general, was a little overwhelming and disorganized.  Too many clicks to find what I was looking for.  But the local board for Hawaii was my go to resource for tons of questions I had.  The ladies were nothing but sweet and helpful.  But I have heard otherwise re: the snarkiness on other boards.

Welcome to the hive! I’m a Knottie in only the aspect of utilizing their tools such as a website, the budgeter, and the checklist. I checked out their pictures for various items (e.g. bouquets, wedding cakes, etc.), but have never ventured into their boards. I’m only here for boards and love it! Wouldn’t venture elsewhere!!!
