    @MrsGarrityToBe:  Haha, no worries, I’ve been around for about 1 and 3/4 years waiting mostly for the circumstances to be right to get engaged.  Just about there, though!  I don’t think you’re alone, especially not on the waiting boards 😉

    But hopefully it won’t be much longer for you!

    Eh? I’m confused. If you and your SO are planning a wedding together, you are practically engaged??

    I was on the bee for almost a year before I got engaged. Although, for half of that we were ring shopping and sort of planning for the wedding.

    I think just under 4 months, we talked about a possible timeline and I started thinking of ideas, found the bee after a google search. But no worries, been here for on nearly two and a half years and still not married!

    Fingers crossed you get engaged soon!

    I found out about WB via Google when I was curious to see how my dress fits on other brides — right after I got engaged. When I was waiting, I think I tried to avoid anything wedding-related; it sort of helped.
    However, the naughtiest things I’ve done while waiting (before I started Project Getting Engaged) was trying on wedding dresses though!! 🙂 (twice; first time with my bridesmaid’s ring and the second time, I borrowed the engagement ring, lol!)

    After a while, I’d figured out that FI also wanted a say in what goes on the wedding. Hence PGE was about focusing on the relationship and banning myself from wedding-related things.

    My 1st anniversary on weddingbee is something like mid-late March and there’s no way I’ll be engaged by the time that passes, though when I signed up I thought for sure that I would be!

    Here’s hoping another year doesn’t fly by with the same outcome haha…

    I didn’t vote.  I didn’t find the bee until after I was engaged and looking for wedding/ring ideas!

    I didn’t join WB until after I was engaged.  I honestly never knew about the whole “waiting” phenomenon!
