bride1: omg i hate the new knot layout

bride2: well its past the point of whining so stop complaining and deal with it

bride1: i wasnt whining i was stating my opinion

bride2: sometimes stating your opinion is whining, and in this case it is

bride1: no need to be a bitch

bride 2: you’re the bitch

 

Was that from theknot.com boards or from every bad competitive skank reality show on VH1?

Both the knot and the nest are so mean!  I made one posting at the nest once (it’s for newlyweds) and was called a dumb bitch like ten minutes later!  (And I don’ think I was being one, for the record!  ;))

it’s just a different vibe over there.  I like both equally.  The ones snarking each other probably know each other.  There are lots of long-standing relationships on TK.

The Knot’s local boards aren’t so bad.  I’ve found their Hawaii board pretty helpful, actually.  But I don’t dare venture to the global boards, it gets pretty viscious.

I got helpful advice when I posted on there, til they realized that I am only 19. Then it was all “well I take back any advice I gave, you just need to wait to get married”. Um. EXCUSE ME? Offbeatbride.ning.com is my home, but I think Weddingbee seems like a good place to be, too. 🙂

I posted a couple questions there before and noone even answered. Then I discovered WB and a whole new world opened before my eyes … Tongue out I know this sounds bad but I never in a million years thought I’d join a “wedding board”, I thought it would be full of sterotypical crazy bridezillas and vapid, catty women. I guess I don’t think too highly of my sex sometimes. Can’t tell you how pleasantly surprised I was to actually find mature, intelligent people here and a TON of useful information. I am now addicted.

I don’t get the appeal of that place at all. I ventured there just to lurk and was shocked at what I saw. Not only are they snarky and cruel beyond belief but they have no qualms in ripping you a new one if you don’t have the means and desire for something off of Platinum Weddings that has absolutely no personalization at all. Heaven forbid you try to have a wedding you can afford and serve normal food, etc etc. How they can get away with the excuse of saying “if you don’t get the honest feedback from us, then your wedding will be a disaster since your family and friends will sugarcoat how pathetic and inhospitable you are toward them” is beyond me. I guess the rule that everyone grew up with about keep your mouth shut if you can’t say anything nice doesn’t apply to them?

Oh yes, Selene221, I saw them completely rip one poor bride a new one because she suggested *gasp* that she might use artificial flowers for her bridesmaids’ bouquets! By the end of their ranting at her about how tacky it was, I just felt horrible for her.

@misslaryss, one of the threads I saw that I couldn’t believe was one girl asking if serving burgers was tacky because it’s something that her guests would be familiar with, and the fact that they are featured on most of the wedding blogs now as a dinner option. Everyone was ripping apart anyone who suggested keeping it familiar instead of going exotic. Because apparantly you can’t have a proper wedding unless the food is so out there that no one touches it because the food is supposed to be for aesthetics only and has to be quite impressive visually rather than tasty. Meanwhile another one was ripped apart because she doesn’t believe that you should get tastings before locking yourself into your vendors and just rely on other people’s personal tastes and experiences as all the info you need.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg of all the different things one can get ripped apart for. Thank god that WB isn’t anywhere near that judgemental.
