I’m the first of all my friends and family to get married, and whilst they do their best to pretend to be interested in my chat about Weddingbee and Style Me Pretty and candy buffets and inspiration boards etc. etc., it’s just not the same. So I get my fix of friendly support and ideas hanging around the hive.
Why do you heart Weddingbee?

It puts such a positive, inspiring spin on wedding planning! Whenever I feel a creative bug coming on, need to vent, or am just looking for a "pick me up," I find myself always logging on.
I have a feeling the habit will be hard to break after the wedding day and recaps have passed!

No one cares about hare-brained DIY projects, detailed paper products and general wedding obsession quite like Weddingbee ladies do! My bridesmaids are all over and can’t really be there for me to tell about what I’m up to in wedding world, my mother just plain doesn’t care sometimes and the there’s only so much I can talk to my other half about before his eyes glaze over. So THANK YOU for providing an outlet for bridal creativity, inspiration and support! No matter what idea I may have in mind, there seems to be an illustration of another bride doing the same thing for her wedding, and that is so very encouraging. Before I found Weddingbee, I was at the point of giving up and running to the courthouse!

it allows me to get away from the crazy stress at work and lets me think of all the happy wedding thoughs I have before me. It’s also nice to just see how darn creative some of you ladies are and how many of you have wonderful ideas on everything. It’s def. a plus!

I love it because no matter what the question/ problem/ frustration is, the hive is there to help! They offer great advice and make you feel so much better. It gives you the warm fuzzies to know that people who have never (and probably will never) meet you care so much about helping you out.

I love weddingbee for so many reasons. I find myself logging on when I’m stumped over an issue, when I need ideas & inspirations, when I have ideas for others, to see what everyone is up to, and for advice & support from all you friendly bees! I have learned so much on here!

I agree with everything that has been said already. I belong to a wedding planning community on LJ and, I see so much "snarky’ness" and negativity…I hardly ever post there anymore, I just post here! Even if it’s a silly question people here still try and help out!

Exactly, krgk84! In general, Weddingbee readers are some of the kindest, most accepting and supportive people in the blogosphere. It’s why I keep coming back.

The Hive is so nice! And being a DIY person myself, I love to see what other projects the bees can come up with!

I love Wedding Bee because everyone in the hive is so amazingly inspiring! I’m not even CLOSE to getting married but I am addicted to reading about everyone’s DIY projects and the rest of the little details. I also enjoy following the ups and downs of planning from the bees themselves. You really start to get a feel for their personalities. Some of them I wish I was friends with in real life because they seem totally awesome!!

I love Weddingbee because whenever I have a question (wedding or non-wedding related) I want to immediately come here and see if some one can help. I usually don’t post about the NWR stuff, but right now I’m thinking "Hmm…I wonder if any other Bees have opinions on de-clawing vs. not de-clawing kittens." Btw, if you do, PM me. I’m wrestling with this right now. Anyway, WB is just so great, I really don’t know how I’d go through wedding planning, or LIFE, without it!

I love Weddingbee because there is such a big range of everything on here! Different budgets, different backgrounds, different ages, different dates, different decor, different everything! There is someone or something that everyone can relate to!

So many reasons… I feel that the bees are more focused on the marriage instead of the wedding, and they’re not snarky. It seems like on the other sites, all these women are so focused on having this one perfect day; I don’t feel like it’s the same here. The bees aren’t snarky. I remember one forum on the knot where people were talking about things that are ‘overdone’ at weddings. When someone would say why they picked something that is ‘overdone’ and tried to defend themselves, they would get attacked and/or called a baby. I have never seen a thread where the bees haven’t been supportive. There are so many reasons why i love Weddingbee! I could go on and on…

I LOVE Weddingbee because this community is so much more of an actual community than many of the other wedding sites I frequent. There is much less snarkiness and much more supportiveness, encouragement, and inspiration on this site than every other wedding site I’ve ever visited! And i love it! It makes me feel comfortable to respond to posts without worrying about someone trying to rebut everything I have to say. Everyone on here is just so NICE and LOVING! A real community and I’m glad I can be a part of it!
