I agree. There are tons of other wedding websites, but this is the only one I frequent because, quite frankly, the others are scary. I like our postive outlook on things (in general) and that we take the time to think before we post, so we don’t inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings (in general). That’s what sets weddingbee apart from The Knot and other boards.

*standing ovation* The only reason I signed up for WeddingBee was because of what an amazing, wonderful, and FRIENDLY community.  I lurked for quite awhile before joining because of how nasty other online message boards can be, and I didn’t want to be involved in that! It’s still not nearly as bad as some others, but it is a lot less welcoming than it was when I joined.

There was episode about this on This American Life! One negative employee or team member – someone who’s a lazy slacker, depressed/pessimistic, or mean/trying to be funny and failing – can slow productivity of the whole team, as others pick up that one team member’s characteristics. STUDIES PROVE that one bad apple can spoil the bunch, even when you’re trying to be positive and rise above it all.

Touche…thanks for posting this!

this is not the place to bring people down ladies! we are supposed to be supportive and encouraging during this stressful time. “if you have nothing good to say, then dont say it” no need to go back and forth bickering at each other.

Whever a bunch of negative posts pop up, I just mosey on over to the decor tab and find posts of girls asking for decor/ inspiration help. Thats one of the main reasons I’m still on this site! I love weddings! 🙂

At my old job, one position in sales management was cursed.  It seemed like every single person who took that position had a horrible attitude – I hate this job, they don’t pay me enough, etc.

That positiion ran out every other person in the sales department, including me.  I quit, and now work somewhere where everyone has a good attitude, and I am a much happier person.

I totally agree and was thinking about starting a similar post! It saddens me that bees can’t express their opinions on things without being attacked or the recipient of snarky posts.

Hear hear to positive vibes!

I think sometimes people forget that there are nice (or at least neutral) ways to express negative or differing opinions.  I am not supportive of censoring, and I really appreciate being able to voice my opinion, even if it is not in agreement with others.  But I try to phrase my opinion in a polite way.
