Could you possibly post the link the the Knot thread you’re talking about?

@Luxuryshoegal88: I’ve never been to the Knot boards but I have heard that it is very cruel and clique-y.

These boards are great. There are a lot of supportive posters and lots of great ideas.

You won’t always get everyone agreeing with you when you post, but the responses you will get are for the most part constructive and caring.

Snark and personal attacks are not allowed here.


Welcome to the bee!

(PS I LOVE shoes, so your name is great)

ETA: I just noticed we are wedding date twins!!

Well they certainly were honest, which is what you said you wanted. But to answer your question, yes the hive (that’s what we call the community here on weddingbee) is much more supportive and much less cruel with our responses. Of course you will get a lot of different opinions, as we are all coming from lots of different backgrounds, but for the most part, everyone is very nice and supportive.

Yeah – I’ve heard the Knot can get a little nasty.

I love posting here, and while people won’t always agree with you, they do give very good advice!

Uggh, I feel you! They do have a reputation of being vicious.

I posted that I was worried because my friend and I wanted the same wedding theme and we got engaged around the same time. Holy shit, I have never had so many mean things said about me.

There were about two pages of people telling me I was high maintenance and I probably wanted a two-carat ring from Tiffany’s (still not sure how that correlates….and no offense to the women who have large rings, but mine’s a third of a carat from a mall jewelry store) and how I was a horrible friend.

So I know that it hurts to have those things said about you (I cried to FI), but just delete your account over there and try to brush it off. ๐Ÿ™

We’re definitely much nice here.

Woah, those ladies are getting awfully personal in that thread. Your responses to some of that “advice” were classy. Totally agree with you that having a Fiance from a different region can effect communication styles ๐Ÿ™‚

Eep, I had no idea theKnot was such a scary place :/

Welcome hun! I’ve been here for almost two years, and I love the WB community. Sure, we have our drama on occasion too, but it’s only from a very small number of fiesty users. ๐Ÿ™‚ Overall, the community is immensly helpful and welcoming!

Kudos to you for clearing out your debt so that you wouldn’t have to take that into a relationship with your fiance! And you guys can definitely have an awesome honeymoon, no matter your budget. ๐Ÿ™‚
