Yes, I come on here all the time. No, I don’t want my friends on here too.
What I mean is.. sometimes I like to vent. I might vent about my life in general, people I know, friends, family, etc, and I just don’t want my rl friends to have access to that… sooo.. I definately downplay WB or I don’t talk about it at all to other people.
(None of my friends are getting married though, so I don’t feel quite as bad hiding it from them)

Lol, I blab about it all the time! I seriously can’t help myself. But my sis in law is the only one who comments on stuff and only on the blog- she doesn’t come into the boards much at all.

I have a friend who just got engaged. I haven’t told her about the site yet but that’s because she is working and taking 6 classes and I don’t want her to be insanely busy!

yes. No one knows I’m on here except my husband. I don’t even think my mom knows i’m on here. I like it that way.

@ pretzel – my best friend knows I come on here, but I don’t elaborate on the things we talk about. I think she thinks I come on here and read stories or something, I have no idea lol.
@ MissAsB – yeah, if she’s already super-busy, you wouldn’t want to turn her into a WB addict! She’d become totally unproductive hehehe 🙂
@ HoneyBear – glad to know it!

I dont tell anyone mine and FHs secret just simply because I like the fact that the hive gives advice wether its family or wedding related, and sometimes you really need the Third party advice. Mind you it wouldnt bother me if anyone of my friends joined, none are getting married tho. Im the first 🙂

I have a good friend who just got engaged, and I tried to tell her about WB back when we were both in the giddy ‘omg we’re going to get engaged sooooooooon!’ phase… but she ignored all efforts I made to talk to her about wedding plans. I was really hurt by that, so I stopped. Now part of me doesn’t want her to have the resources I have here. Only part of me though. 🙁
I figure now that she’s formally engaged, I’ll try once more to share ideas with her, and if she isn’t on board, that’s her loss – I have you guys, afterall!

I vent A LOT on here too, I would hate it if my friends were on here!! I try to hide it, but everytime I get to talking to them about it & instead of just saying “Wedding Forum”, I call it “Weddingbee Forum”, Haha!!! I can’t get away from it. But I def. like this being my own little home away from home 🙂

I almost told some friends (that are not close friends) that are engaged about it but I thought I better not.. lol. If they find it that is great but I don’t want them to know I am on here. lol

Yes I hide it. I say nothing, but my Maid/Matron of Honor did find some of my posts. I don’t worry about it now b/c i’m not getting married anymoer, but I don’t know that my friends would necessarily appreciate my super duper honest opinion and sometimes I referecne personal situations for the hive. They may not appreciate being the one I’m mentioning. But that’s life I guess!

I haven’t told my family, but my friends know. I have some family drama that I don’t want to make worse by bringing them here.

none of my friends know i’m on here, either. my fiance does, though- but i am hoping (and trusting) that he doesn’t log on to see what i write, since i had posted a photo of my dress here.
it’s funny- about a week ago i had written regarding my dress experinece. he asked if he could read it, since he wanted to know what i was going through and how i was feeling. there were no suprises- he knew it all anyways, but it was sweet. i think he’s trying to get used to the fact that i write and chat with all of you, people i don’t know…but somehow it all works great and is fun. this is such a wonderful forum.

I talk about my “wedding boards” all the time – but HOPE AND PRAY they don’t come looking because I have “legally married” in my profile…(which I am) but no one IRL knows! (well, my parents, his mom and my MOH/her husband do…)

I don’t hide it but refers to it as “a wedding forum”. If people ask I tell them, though.
