I always apologize when my fiancÃ© walks in and I’m doing stuff on weddingbee. I tend to get a bit preoccupied with wedding stuff. My fiancÃ© actually encourages me to use the website. He loves the fact that I found our wedding venue by a suggestion from another bee. I would have never known about the place! How do your fiancÃ©s feel about you going on weddingbee?

I’m not even engaged yet, but my boyfriend thinks it’s great that I’m on here. (my post count is low because I was a lurker) He understands that any information I find on here will just make our lives easier. Who could argue against that? 😉

He doesn’t understand why my posts are so long (they’re normal lengthed I promise) because on his car forum people write less. But we’re mostly girls on here and girls like to talk :).
ETA: He also doesn’t understand that I can look at other people’s rings for hours and not love mine any less. I think because when he looks at cars he wants to buy all of them.

Eh. He doesn’t care. He always asks what I’m doing, and I feel a little weird when he “snaps me back to reality.” Really, to a man it might be a little absurd to spend so much time on a wedding website when I’ve been married for 8 months. I sort of wish WB would just change their layout to look a little more innocuous.
But women like to ruminate about things, whereas dudes don’t. It’s helpful to come and get a lady’s perspective on a lady’s problem. He doesn’t get why emotions are involved sometimes, whereas a woman will know why a commercial makes you cry! 🙂
Plus, I like to pay the wedding advice forward to women getting married now. I got lots o’ help when I was getting married.
PS: I know you asked what peoples FI’S**** think about WB. Hope you don’t mind my answer, considering I’m a married person.

He was cool with it until I went to the meet up. TheN he was like you’re going to go meet people you met on the Internet to talk about our wedding? Now he’s used to it and just asks me if I’m on my girly site.

@StuporDuck: Not at all! I love the advice that I get from married ladies. I’m new to all this, and not the most girly girl so I can use all the help I can get!

Neutral? I definitely don’t feel guilty—its not porn!

Ha! I posted for the first time a few days ago about a difficult situation we were in (but didn’t tell him that I had done so). One of the responses I received was incredibly helpful (ok, they were all amazing, but one in particular seemed to resolve our problem). As soon as I told him that I posted he got very concerned – why? is it confidential? why do you need to know what other people think? – and I patiently explained these boards exist to help people with similar problems, and I thought some context would be good for us. He was skeptical. Until I told him what the helpful bees had to say. And then he realized I was right (about posting in the first place). As usual 🙂

- Wedding: September 2012 - Mother of the Bride's residence
I felt kind of weird about it before I was a blogger bee, to be honest. I didn’t want Mr. D to think I was obsessed with weddings or anything, and I wrote some stuff that I would feel weird if he read, so any time he googled something about weddings and shared a WB board link with me I’d get really nervous. And then I applied to blog and I didn’t tell him so when I got accepted I had to explain a whole lot of stuff, haha! Now I don’t find it weird and neither does he but I’m obviously not really hiding it any more.

I found the ‘Bee when I was a waiting Bee. Even back then my SO thought it was great because I had an outlet that wasn’t him to vent or discuss things. He doesn’t mind at all.

My fiance likes that I go on the website. He frequently will make fun of me and call me “obsessed” but in a joking way lol He sometimes wants to see the stuff I write on the website but I pick and chose the stuff I tell him.

He doesn’t mind at all, but the first time I told him about it (gushed about it pretty much) and said it was like “bridal support” he laughed and said I was crazy lol

Darling Husband laughs about it. He says if I could marry a website that I would marry weddingbee. Sometimes he gets annoyed, like oh you’re on that website you’re not paying any attention to me. But I’m like, you’re watching sports, and I’m on weddingbee and we’re sitting on the couch cuddling.. how is that not giving you attention?? Lol..
The only thing he asked me is if I’ve ever written anything about our relationship on here but I haven’t. I’ve written personal details about my own life (childhood, etc.) but I don’t think he’d want me to post personal details about my relationship (if I ever did I think I’d also make an anonymous account).
ETA: He’s also asked to see the stuff I’ve posted but I get shy about showing him lol.

My husband didn’t mind it while we were planning but now that we’re married, he thinks it’s a little silly that I still hang out here. 🙂
