SO in my newly engaged excitement I started using the boards here (which I LOVE) and theknot which I have been told I MUST be one.. meanwhile people there are so mean, complete b*tches (sorry language) and just horrible. I don’t understand it. SHouldn’t we all be happy brides to be 🙂 I actually don’t want to do anything bridal or look at dresses or any of the things that were fun to me 48 hours ago because I’ve been so made to feel un deserving of it by these people.
ANyone else have horrible experiences on other sites? Everyone here seems to be very nice (oh PLEASE don’t prove me wrong lol)

I never was a part of any other wedding blogs, but everyone here is pretty nice and very helpful! Sorry you had a bad experience elsewhere, but welcome to the hive!

Yeah, a lot of the bees here have had negative experiences with other sites. I was on the knot and they burned me for asking an innocent question. I was so upset. I didn’t go on another wedding forum because of it. About 6 months later, I found the WB and I’ve been here since. It’s a great community. I love it.
Oh, welcome to the hive! If you have any site related questions feel free to PM me.

Some people get that way, but I have gotten a lot of help from people on here. Everywhere will have bad eggs, just ignore them.

AWesome. Thank you all for the welcome 🙂 A friend of mine (guy) told me that his fiance HATES theknot and is all about this site here so I thought it was safe to bring up the meanies and be happy to be in a welcoming environment 🙂

This site is not perfect, since there are things running around called humans, but honestly the good here far outweighs the negative. This is a wonderful place to be.
Hope you have fun posting here.

I have heard of that on other sites also, but my experience here on WB has always been great. Once in awhile a Troll will pop their head in, but the Mods and Hostesses are really good about taking care of that quickly.
We are glad that you found WB and welcome to the Hive!

The Knot has a reputation for being a horrible place.
Welcome to the Bee! It’s a lot nicer here (though we do have our moments). And congratulations! You’re getting married! 😀

I’m so surprised at how many bad things I am hearing about The Knot.. I totally thought it was going to be such an amazing place… then again I thought that about Kleinfeld’s Bridal Salon and have been hearing bad things too. Of course that doesn’t mean that goes for everyone but it is nice to know it wasn’t just me! 🙂

Welcome to the bee 🙂
Sorry you had a bad experience over there :-/
The moderators here work overtime to make sure that this site stays positive, so you should be pretty safe here. The occasional troll gets in, but they are quickly taken care of 🙂

People here tend to be great. I picked up a Knot magazine at the grocery store the other day and was like, “Why doesn’t the Bee have a magazine? It would be so full of squee and friendliness and REAL people.”

I stopped going on the knot website boards bc the girls were a little to snarky for my liking. Everyone has their moments but I was over it.

I have yet to have a bad experience at the Knot but some members here have it seems. Sorry to hear they gave you a hard time! 🙁

I like the people at weddingbee WAY better than any other websites. The snarkyness is limited over here and thank god because honestly it gets annoying to see adults acting like high school children. Of course there are some members on here (won’t say any names) that are distasteful but like a PP said, there will be bad or rotten eggs everywhere. 🙂

I love wedding bee because for one the brides to be are all so sincere and really just want ideas for their upcoming wedding and two i think since everyone is really in the same boat why not share the modern and upcoming ideas with people that are going thru the same thing. I really dont understand why brides want everything to be on DL if the brides are in different STATES.
