Hhhhmm.

 

I’ve actually had MOSTLY pleasant experiences on the Knot.  The girls on my month board are awesome.

I’ve never been to TheKnot but I’ve heard similar experiences about it on the boards here. Thanks for the laugh 😉 Welcome to the Bee! I hope you find lots of great ideas, support, and have fun here!

hi, welcome! i enjoyed reading the arguing on the knot boards for entertainment, but would never participate. my husband hated the knot with a passion (how this developed i’ll never know) so i just avoided it and stuck with this site. peaceful people with good ideas on WB!

Definitely sorry that you had such a horrible experience with TheKnot boards. Hopefully you’ll find Weddingbee to be more friendly and welcoming!

I too am a WB convert. I left the knot after being belittled and humilated by the women over there. I have heard that the local and month boards are actually quite pleasant. If, however, you venture into ettiquette or any of the other ‘big boards’ you do need to be wary.

I am glad that I was introduced to the WB. Thank you for making this a safe, happy, productive venue for sharing.

I’m with you. I deleted my Knot/Nest account after I got into with a few people over me wanting to buy a house and the FI not wanting to. We already own a house, but he has lived in it for 8 years, so it is like his house. I just want an “our” house, but we really aren’t in the ideal situation right now to move. After awhile I said “You know, I have some debt to pay off, so this house will just have to do for now.” They told me my FI must be a lying, manipulative, controlling, and abusive person to convince me I didn’t deserve a nicer house and that I SHOULDN’T get married to him. Overeaction much Nesties? I didn’t even talk to my FI after I posted, I just thought about it for an hour and decided for myself going into more debt for something we don’t need right now was silly.

Also when I posted my butterfly theme almost everybody commented that the theme was sooo two years ago and that old fashioned weddings are dull. I think most of them are insecure, so they need to pick on other people to feel better about their home life.

i think a lot of the times if they don’t get any crazy posts on the knot in a while, they get antzy and just jump on any newbie that isn’t in their clique.  you won’t find that here!  =)

The knot’s auto-play videos were enough to drive me right off of that site – bad practice!

I love theknot boards that I am a regular on.  The national boards, like ‘Etiquette’, etc. are a nightmare so I stay away from those girls.  They are on 24/7 picking apart every girl on there.  It’s ridic.
