    • Wedding: June 2011

    Joined Feb 2011. So right about 2.5 years. I’m hooked! ; ) But I mostly do read NWR/Nesting now that I’ve been married for more than two years.

    A crazy long time.  WeddingBee was one of the first blogs I ever got into (along with Young House Love which I still read daily..and was called This Young House in that day!)…so I think it was 2007 or 2008 when I started reading?  I’m not sure exactly, but I know WB itself was very young at the time, maybe only on the 2nd generation of Bees.  

    While I haven’t read the blog regularly in years, I’ve gotten pretty into the forsums.  WeddingBee, I just can’t quit you!

    It’s going to be one year at the end of this month! I joined for the wedding advice, stayed for the amazing community feel and the football threads 🙂

    I have not changed my username, although I thought about it since the “t” in my username refers to my maiden name. Oh well!

    I joined a few months ago. I have no idea how I found this site, but I’ve been reading the boards for quite a while (maybe a year).

    • Wedding: September 2013 - B&B

    1 year, 6 months active member! I lurked for about a year before I joined though, because I had this thing about not actually joining until I was engaged haha.

    I plan on sticking around after the wedding, I mean obviously for my recaps and to try and give advice when I can, but I will more heavily use the nesting and NWR boards, and I am sure that when it comes time I will head over to the TTC board! There will be a LOT of questions, I’m sure hahahahha.

    I joined in February of 2012, about a month after we were engaged.  I came here for wedding planning ideas and I’ve stuck around ‘cuz I like you guys.

    I have always had the same user name and always will have.  I have never gone anonymous and never will.  I did change my avatar once – I think it was within the first couple of months.  My old avatar looked like

    I’ve been here for four years and four months. Eesh! I’ve always been Gemstone. I originally joined shortly after getting engaged, but my connection to the community kept me here long past my wedding! 🙂

    @Mrs_Amanda:  Yes ma’am. The funny thing is I see bees that have been around a while that are “staples” and I remember in general when they joined.

    It is pretty interesting those that have come and gone in the years I’ve been on here.
