Hey ladies!  I just want to tell everyone how thankful I am to have found a community with such warm, kind, and generous people!  Thank you for receiving my posts and for providing such great advice and encouragement.  I have gone to the "other" major bridal site, and it just didn't have the same true community feel like it does here. Some posts even bordered on being rude!  Not my experience on here though.  Thanks again for truly providing a community for those of us during times of need.

I wholeheartedly agree. I don't know how I would have made it through the wedding planning process without the support of the girls here. 

Thank you for initiating such a thoughtful post. It's nice to see this.

I completely agree with you. Having this site has made my bad time a better one. Really good advices coming from thoughtful community members that really care about each other. Whenever I have a problem in my relationships with my other half or my family this site is the first place to come for help.

Thanks for the post and thanks everybody!!!! Is great to have a place to vent and receive advice.

I completely agree! I used to love but I had a very bad experience there, the women there seem so hateful and will pick you apart! But everyone I've talked to here, even if they have difference of opinion, have been so kind and helpful!

I CERTAINLY agree with you AutumnPrincess, I was on the's boards for a while and the people there are NOTHING like they are here. I say thank you!!!!!!! Really, it's so nice to have a community of people that are going through EXACTLY what you are. Thanks to everyone who has given me advice......and not bitter I'm better than you advice, but real solutions. 

To be in love is the greatest gift of all, to be best friends with the person you'll always love is twice as nice, but to have a mature conversation about a disagreement is the most amazing thing I could ever ask for.

count down to your wedding

Ive told this story before, but I still find if so bizarre.

I tried posting on TheKnot back when I was still planning my wedding, before I came over here. My first post there was oen of those short and sweet "Hi Im Kelley - just thought Id introduce myself and say Im glad to be able to talk with other brides planning their weddings. Hopefully we can help each other."or something like that ... I got a whole bunch of replies and maybe TWO of them were nice or normal. The rest were various degrees of psychotic, randomly rude, and just plain HUH?? Stuff like ...

Who cares what your name is and when your wedding is?

Congratulations. SHould we throw out a red carpet for you now?

Youre too old to be getting married. (my age , 35 at the time, was in my profile.)

Why would anyone live in Jersey? (ok that poster has a point but still LOL.)

Basically - the majority of posters over there are pretty bitter for a bunch of people about to get married. I dont get it -why are they all so damn cranky?:)

So I came here and felt at home immediately.

Found this thread at the perfect time.  I'd forgotten why I'd left (snarky brides picking on me for wanting to get married over spring break...not even sure was up with that), and I went back over today.  I started reading some of the boards and I was like, omg these women are insane!!!   Like you have absolutely nothing better to do than tear a woman's wedding to pieces!  So I quickly scuttled back over here, where we are (pretty much) safe from snark-ism.  :D

And yes, Kelly, that's utterly rediculous.  I feel for you!!
