I really try to be honest. I don’t set out to hurt someone’s feelings, but I won’t refrain from giving my honest opinion.

If someone asks if their centerpieces look nice.. and they.. dont.. I’m not gonna lie.

I will however, try to point them in the right direction of something that will improve them, or a cheap option for something that looks 100x better.

I think sometimes some ladies on here tend to critisize, but don’t give reasoning or advice.

I also avoid topics where I don’t have anything nice to say at all. I’ll just skip them and refrain from posting. Period.

Overall, I am quite pleased with the forum, and I’ve learned a TON of things, as well as gotten great advice and a bunch of ideas.

Thanks for being so great ladies.

I totally agree that I love being a part of WeddingBee because it is often such a positive place to come! It’s great to be a part of a group of other wedding-crazed women (and a few men!) that are there when you want to vent about a guest not RSVPing, your Mother-In-Law driving you up a wall, or just general life stresses. 

I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting a few of the ladies in my area from WeddingBee, and I can honestly say they’re some of the most fun gals I’ve ever met! This is a seriously tight knit group, and everyone continues to amaze me when one of us is in trouble. 

Keep up the awesome attitudes, ladies!

@pookiesmom:  I agree wholeheartedly! I love this community soooo so so much and it is the only community where I felt there was warm, welcoming, kind girls who are constructive and still sweet! Love it here so much and I appreciate your post because you help me realize how lucky I am to be here as well!

I think the Bee is the least snarky place I’ve ever been on the Internet. Constructive criticism is necessary and helpful – even if people don’t appreciate it. I think there’s a big difference between holding someone’s hand and coddling them when it’s clear they are making rash decisions, vs. saying, “Hey I know you’re hurt/upset, but here’s why you should stop and take a second look at what you’re doing.”

The Bee is such a positive, embracing place to be. Everyone was SO supportive of me during my breakup and when I returned, and I’ll never forget that.

I love this site as well, it amazes me how many sweet people lend their ears and shoulders to those who need them!  Wonderful!

I think it has been a good place for me to get a grip on reality as well. Planning a wedding – being surrounded by wedding stuff all day, every day – can easily make you feel like EVERY detail will be paramount. Seeing a kind-hearted ‘honey, you’re crazy, it’ll be fine’ on these posts are so reassuring. 

The positive vibe helps me to feel like I am not being attacked – but I am allowed to ask stupid questions to someone other then the MOG/MOB who aren’t really clued in on the traditions and how they are modified for our own generation.

I really like this place!
