I was such an avid member on here during my wedding planning and now that I am married, I kinda feel like I don’t fit in. I linger around on the Wedding Related section but don’t feel like I can relate to anything anymore. I feel empty 🙁 I LOVE THE BEE!!! Any others feel this way?

i did at first, but i’ve loved following the nesting posts and hoping on threads with newbees looking for answers about things i had experience with during my planning. i try to leave, but i just can’t!

I want you to know that newlyweds can give us to-be-marrieds some of the BEST advice because you’ve been through the wedding thing! Weddingbee would be a rough place without any newlyweds around! 🙂
P.S. Congratulations on being MARRIED! 🙂

You can be a help to us who are going crazy over colors! Aka me. 😉

I did at first… but then I started venturing more to the Nesting & NWR sections… I’m happy again and have felt really welcomed in the Newlywed board as I got lots of encouragement yesterday when venturing into new cooking territory. <– was my first Newlywed board post.
I still like the Wedding boards but now I give tips… I think what helped also was getting my pics and posting my recaps. I kinda “wandered” between the wedding and getting them. lol
I’m sure you’ll find your nitch and stick around with us! 😉

I love the nesting section, and like others said, it’s nice to be able to give people advice based on something that we’ve already been through. I remember loving having that advice of married bees when I was planning, so I’m hoping I can be helpful for others too!

I”m definitely not as active as I was while planning and I relate to the bee in new and different ways now that I’m a newlywed. Things like picking a color scheme, song list, etc. don’t interest me as much anymore, but I will always LOVE dress and ring posts. I relate to the baby boards only because everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant, so it is an important topic in my life even though DH adn I are not planning on TTC.

I hang out in the nesting section usually. I feel out of place there too since 75% of the posts are about having babies.

@JoJo Bananas: I’m starting to hang out there too, but I also feel out of place among the many baby posts. We’re not going to buy a house or TTC for quite awhile, so it looks like a lot of cooking/decorating/pet posts for me!

I’m not as active and I took a break from WB for a couple months, but now I lurk around and just give advice. I would really miss the community if I left.

@moderndaisy: same, we are not TTC, but since the topic of newlywed conversation seems to be babies, I tend to read a lot of those posts.

I’ve stayed around and read a lot of various threads whether I post on them or not. Some wedding stuff I still find interesting, but I’m mostly on the Baby and Newlywed boards.

I like to look at what other brides are up to and give advice where I can. Sometimes it makes me really miss planning my wedding. The past couple of weeks I’ve been run off my feet so I haven’t been around as much, but I don’t think I could ever just up and leave! I love the community here too much. Like the PPs have mentioned, I’ve found I’ve started shifting more towards the NWR and Nesting boards.

I just wish that the newlywed boards weren’t quite so focused on babies and TTC. I understand that this is a natural “next step” for many couples, but for couples like us, who have many years before we want children, if at all, it seems hard to find a board to call home.
so I hop around a lot, a little here, a little there.

Aww dont feel that way!! You may be married but that doesnt make you any less of an asset. It doenst mean you cant give your opinions or let other girls know what you did, what you would do different if anything. All of it. Your just in the place that we all want to be at lol
