Ahahaha I lurked around TK for a while, since they have some interesting features [though those don’t always work] but the boards were HORRIFIC.
My Maid/Matron of Honor who just recently got engaged told me today she joined TK and all she could say was “.. The forums there are so brutal!” so I gently directed her to WB, & hopefully she’ll have a better experience.

I joined over there and all I use are some of the planning tools and the inspiration pictures. I don’t look at the “real” weddings, forum, or any of the vendors because honestly they are all geared toward brides from the southern part of Idaho and I was lucky to find a photographer listed who’s about an hour away. I do use the weddingchannel.com stuff too and it seems to be more user friendly and I get more interesting stuff in my inbox from it.

Sooo happy to find WB. The Knot and the Nest scare me something fierce. They can be so mean and judgmental! I have to confess that I sometimes read the boards there because they can be so unintentionally funny.
A while back, there was a woman who was kind of bewildered and amused when her husband just walked up to her when she was in the middle of something and requested an immediate handjob. The consensus on the board was that he’s going to be beyond reproach when he cheats on her because she’s failed at her wifely duty to comply with his sexual requests. What?

Me-ow. It’s like junior high without the accountability.

I like the Knot’s features to search dresses, etc, but their boards are MEAN.

I keep reading posts on this. I use the knot for idea mostly and rarely use the message boards. I have used them before and I have never witnessed this in any of them, I stick to my city though the girls are nice and helpful. There are some snarky girls on WB too. The difference is they are limited to how they can be snarky on WB because it can be reported and dealt with.

I made one awesome friend from there, but other than her, it was rough over there!!!

Wow, I’ve spent plenty of hours browsing the galleries over there, never bothered with their boards though! Def have to go do some lurking!
I do sometimes think we can a bit too sensitive here, but the alternative sounds a bit nasty!

I went on there asking for ideas on unique ways to ask someone to be your bridesmaid. At first I got someone to give an idea and then everyone starts telling me how I don’t need to make a big production on asking. I put up that I just want ideas and not opinions and that if you can’t help then don’t comment and then I got attacked. But I was the one being rude.

A mod on TK told me to “F*ck off, you’re not a June bride” once. Last time I ever went there.

I use to be on the knot. It is not very friendly at all. They are very rude and I just didn’t need the negativity that came from there. I was actually afraid to post anything in fear that I would get told a bunch of mean things. Not to mention they are not very friendly towards young brides. Then I found the Bee. I love how everyone is so nice and friendly and helpful. I would never switch back.. even if the knot paid me. I like looking at it for pictures of possible ideas or something, but other than that.. I am a bee for life <3 Every person that I come in contact in that is either waiting or planning a wedding I tell them to check out Weddingbee! 🙂

What’s sad is the only use I getting out of the forum is the DIY section. The only nice ppl on there.

I hate the knot. :P. Those people are so mean! I posted on the Not Engaged Yet Board and a bunch of married women started yelling at me for daring to think (mind you, I wasn’t booking vendors or anything!) about my wedding before Fiance gave me the ring, even though we had basically settled on a wedding date!
Oy, I’m never ever going back there. I’ve heard the local boards are nice, but it’s just so not worth it to me. Honestly, I’d rather have over-sensitive people than catty bridezillas. Wedding Bee rocks!
