I just came over here from wedding wire, and I have to say, I like wedding bee a whole heck of a lot better than I like wedding wire. I can post something with confidence that I won’t be ganged up on and told I’m an Idiot or that I shouldn’t be getting married because I “can’t afford” THE dress…and want to buy it used. I love that snarkiness and such is not allowed on the boards here, it makes me absolutely happy knowing that no one will be rude to me just to be rude.
Thank you weddingbee, I love you

Welcome to the bee! We still have our share of snark around here but at least it’s monitored and stopped unlike other sites.
Congrats on your upcoming wedding!

Welcome to the Bee! once in a while there is a snarky sneak attack, but that isn’t very often. Don’t feel bad about not being a rich bride, we have all levels of bride here, so you will fit right in. I hope we see a lot of you!

@SandyThePoet: they weren’t shunning me for not being a rich bride, they ganged up on me, and attacked me verbally for not wanting to buy a Davids Bridal dress, I don’t like Davids Bridal, I have nothing against their dresses, I just have something against their customer service. They made it out like I was “settling” on a cheap dress, and what I was actually doing was having to deal with bad customer service for a nice dress at a reasonable price. (I have heard SEVERAL horror stories about DB)Then they made it out like I was going to buy a knock off dress from DHgate (which I may if I can’t afford the dress I want new, or can’t find it in/near my size used), which I didn’t just say “I’m going to buy from here”, I asked for help and ALL the snarky brides (which it seems like that’s all that seems to be on there) came out and attacked me again, which after that I wrote the people of the site and told them to just delete my account and came here instead. I haven’t been here long but I seem to like it here, I haven’t been brow beaten for wanting to do something someone finds “tacky” or thinks I shouldn’t do it. I have already gotten a lot of help from some of the brides here and I enjoy it.

Welcome to the Hive! Can’t wait to see how your wedding plans unfold! Keep us posted! As for David’s Bridal, I think it majorly depends on the store, I’ve heard some bad horror stories from other brides, but I had good customer service at my store, so who knows. Anways good luck with everything.
