I have no right to be here.
I got on here because I was looking into some things when I was a bridesmaid.
I stayed because this place is beyond awesome! I love these forums for the great discussions that take place here, as well as the pretty dresses and happy, happy brides.
I am single. I got dumped a while back. I am nowhere near marriage. I can’t even figure out a functional relationship!
I hope you’ll let me stay, because I’m pretty much going to stick around anyway! I love seeing all the real people on here. I love seeing your joy when you post recaps, I can relate to your family stresses, and I really enjoy being here.
I just feel like such a faker, even though I’ve never said I’m married or engaged here.
Accept me? Someday I hope to be a bride too. Until then, I’m just me!

Awww, you totally have a right to be here!! There are more than a few single bees floating around the hive, whether they have ended engagements or joined because they are mothers of the bride/bridesmaids/whatever! I promise you we are more than happy to have you around: for the most part, we’re a very accepting community! 😀

We’re keeping you. Deal with it.

You aren’t the only one. I came here when my daughter was planning her wedding last August (date above). I got lots of great ideas then but I’ve stuck around since (partially for the ring section since I’ll be ‘upgrading; my ring for my 30th anniversary). However, the main reason why I continue to hang around is a great community here.

Aw lol – this is a wonderful community to be and all are welcome – relationship or not!

Stick around, of course! There are plenty of single Bees here, as well as waiting Bees and married Bees – so lots of people who aren’t here just for weddings!
I’ve been a member for a while, and a lurker longer still, and I have yet to do much of any wedding planning. I won’t be engaged for another few weeks. So I post mainly in non-wedding threads for now and check out lovely pictures and comment on other folks’ big days. It’s fun!

Thanks, guys! I just feel like everyone assumes I’m in that situation, so after a tiny bottle of wine I felt the need to just put it out there! I know how accepting everyone is, and that’s why I felt I could do this.
Thanks, y’all. YOU BET I’LL STICK AROUND.

LOL, I got married in August; my husband keeps asking why I’m still on here.

Ummmm I’ve been single since I joined WB, and although I’m in a relationship now, there’s no ring/wedding date in sight!
What’s worse is I have no problem posting my two cents about any and every topic, lol!
So . . . welcome!

meh. I came on here to ask ONE question, had it answered, and proceeded to borderline antagonize many Bees on here with my comments and responses and advice 😛

Ha, add me to the phoney list. I call myself a future MOB. Which is technically true, but my older daughter’s not engaged yet – I’m just getting ahead of myself 🙂
