I was searching for pictures of other women’s engagement rings.  I stay for the enagement ring pictures.  Kind of crazy, I know.  I just like rings that much.

I googled. “I hate my Mother In Law” and bingo, google brought me to the Bee! I was looking for a blog or some advice about how to deal with her crazy butt and i am so glad that I did. I was actually mostly done planning my wedding, but getting opinions on my DIY projects is what kept me here. Now that I’m married, it’s a great support system for all different issues, plus it’s a good way to keep myself busy when I’m traveling or home by myself at night (DH works 2nd shift).  Plus since I started a wedding planning business it’s a great place to get my creative juices flowing.

 I was doing a Google search on something.  I think it was how to make a cupcake stand.  I’m not sure but it was something wedding related.  I started reading a post and the rest is history.  It just sucked me right in.  But, I have to say I was an occasional user prior to my wedding.  Since my wedding, WB has become a full blown habit!

Everytime I googled a wedding-related question, whether it was the best type of glue for my invitations or other couples’ experiences with Engaged Encounter – the best results always came from the Bee. I too lurked for a while before posting. And I also wish I’d found it sooner – we’ve been engaged for over two years, but I’ve only been on since April. It would have been a big help for earlier decisions as well!

But now I love the Bee and I plan to stay!

I honestly can’t remember for sure, but I think something happened on theknot that really upset me, so I decided to not go back, but I needed my wedding fix somewhere! I think I just googled “wedding forum” or something like that! And I’ve loved it here ever since!

Thanks ladies, you’re wonderful!

I would google wedding related things, and this website would always come up! I stayed because everyone is so nice, and I wanted to participate in conversations

I honestly have no idea what I googled that brought me here… probably a DIY of some kind. That was over a year ago….. way to many searches, googles to pinpoint “the one” lol

I’ve stayed b/c I really enjoy the community and I feel like it’s a way for me to give back from things that I’ve learned… whether through the planning process or dealing with family <– dun dun dun.. lol

I really like it here though and don’t see “leaving” anytime soon.

I was just googling something and came across the bee.

And I stay because I don’t really have close friends in real life to talk about girly stuff with.

I never knew about blogs or message boards until WB. I was in crisis over the blush White by Vera and had nowhere to go for help. My mom gave some advice, but was 2,000 miles away. My FI couldn’t help me with this decision and I felt guilty about dress regret and didn’t want to admit it to my girls.

So I posted my very 1st thread about my dress dilemma. One of the early comments was to check with FI about wearing color. Very useful advice! From there, I knew I was in a place of support and comfort…where I could be wedding obsessed and not feel isolated or alone 🙂

So far, it seems Google ftw! I was googling “why hasn’t he proposed yet”, and it brought me to the waiting boards threads. I was amazed that there were so many others out there that were in the same boat as me. Made me feel a little less crazy 🙂 I’ve been hooked ever since. And I’m sure I’ll stick around loooooong after our big day comes.

I googled something wedding related but i don’t remember what exactly. After browsing through a few different threads i was totally mesmerized and couldn’t stop reading, like” OMG, this board is the most awesome place on earth!!!” and i’m addicted ever since.

I googled Manuel Mota’s Selena dress when I was first considering that option, and it brought me to the classifieds section. I then discovered the boards and posted a few questions, never thinking that I would ever become as attached/addicted as I have!!

I actually found the bee though another wedding forum, where someone on there made a board about how some girl who belonged to both forums was bashing all of us on said forum. Well I got curious what this other forum was and it was the bee! Well now I’m in luff with the bee, and hardly go on the other forum now.

I found it googling wedding stuff back in november when I first got engaged. The ring boards hooked me in. The blog, DIY stuff & pretty much everything else kept me here.
