i love weddingbee. since the day i found the website i been glue to it. i love reading the board, getting ideas and writing boards myself, and this is where my frustration come from. Im a different bride, i do accept im bipolar when it comes to some of my desisions, but even those days that iim so undecided i like to recieve opinions. im planning my wedding alone and dont have close family or friends to talk about the wedding. i post here my ideas to get opinions but i have notice that when my ideas are really out there nobody will give opinions…
its is frustrated because i know im not a cookie cutter bride. i dont look as beautiful as some of the womens here or that my selections are weird as they can be. i see post from womens that recieve opinions from everybody because their dress are amazing or their venue are espectacular, etc. i know that into a centain point my ideas are really out there but at least i will like some opinions.
it frustrated when i read when brides have all thsi bridesmaid and help and i feel so lonely into this planing. for the record… I DO HAVE FRIENDS but all of them are in Puerto Rico, to far to get fully involve. i live alone in MA and nobody to share what is suppose to be a fun time.
dont get me wrong, im exited with he planing (some days i want to pull all my hair out of my skull) but i do feel alone in this mess.
sorry… but i need it to ventilate my feelings today!!

We all need to vent! *Hugs*
Honestly, I think we’re all really different. The one thing all the Bees have in common is that they’re creative and actively seeking ideas and advice.
I wouldn’t like the Bee nearly as much if we were all the same. If your wedding makes you happy, it’s not weird. 🙂

I know how you feel! I didn’t have any bridesmaid help either. And whatever decisions you like, we will like it! Everyone likes different things and that’s what makes it so great here!

Oh Im so sorry you feel that way! I try to keep on top of weddingbee. But im making a special note to look out for your posts. I am really sure your wedding is going to be special and Its good to have a differant cookie cutter in the pile!
Have you looked at sites like offbeatbride.com?
Anyway good that you were able to raise the issue!

I don’t know if people aren’t commenting because of your ideas, sometimes I don’t click a link if the title doesn’t interest me or you could be posting at times when people aren’t online so the post gets lost in the shuffle. I will try to keep an eye out for your posts!

Posts get lost really quickly on here when it’s busy, too. I know the other day I started a thread that was pretty specific, and didn’t get any responses. But other threads I’ve started have gone to 3 or 4 pages easily. Just depends on who’s on and how relatable your topic is.

Yeah, I’m a little different too. This is a second wedding for me. We have decided to have a little-tiny wedding…like less than 25 guests total, and it’s going to be very simple, and very inexpensive. We’re getting married in a field, where we are planning to build our house in a few years, no wedding party, no first dance, not even a wedding cake…just saying our vows and it’s done.
Don’t be discouraged. We are all different, have different ideas, different likes and dislikes, and different budgets. That doesn’t make any wedding more grand than any other. Each of us are on our own journey, and they are all unique and special.
Chin up! Share your ideas on here, give us all some input, some of us may be plannning the kind of things that you are, and maybe we can bounce stuff off of one another!

(((((hugs))))) I am so sorry you feel this way. I do have to say I agree with you re: your thoughts surrounding WB. When I discovered this site I was blown away. I knew it was for me yet I didn’t know how to become a part of it. I thought it was an “invite” only type wedding blog. While it is to a certain extent – it isn’t totally 100% and because of that after browsing for a while I became a ‘threader’ heeheehee
DO NOT get discouraged. Skies the limit, Girl. The most wonderful thing about WB is that it opens our eyes and exposes us to ALL types of weddings. We come into this unsure of so many things and I am confident in saying that I am sure every night all of us go to sleep feeling some bit of inspiration stemming from WB.
Keep sharing – don’t allow this bump to turn you around – go through it and continue your journey with us – its too much fun on here – plus we’ll miss ya

I am completely obsessed with WB since I stumbled on it too! I first stalked it of course for a couple of weeks then decided to start becoming part of the discussion. I love it because ther are so many different backgrounds on here and you can pretty much get an opinion on anything you might be concerned about or some girl power if you are feeling down! Dont get discouraged keep on threading!
