Ever had a moment when you said or did something that anyone on the Hive would totally get, but non-bees or non-brides-to-be were clueless? Case in point: today I was buying a swatch of fabric to make a bowtie for a bird on my cake topper (totally cute, I’ve seen a few Bees do something similar)… and when I told the saleslady I was making a bird bowtie she about lost her mind. She thought I was putting it on a real LIVE bird! Hehehe… I forget that the whole world doesn’t revolve around weddings. You guys would have known exactly what I meant.
I started to wonder if anybod else had a similar hilarious experience?

I’ve caught myself saying FI and stuff like that on Facebook and people are like, whaaa?!

Oh I have stuff like that all the time. Especially with friends who are also planning wedding but aren’t quite as…enthusiastic about it as I am, haha.

@Laylabelle: Me too! The best was when I posted on a fellow wedding planning friend’s wall about her “STDs” I forgot it has a whole other meaning!
@Amanda.lynnn: LOL- I love the hesitation as you described yourself as “enthusiastic” about wedding planning. I know exactly what you mean!

I sent a picture of a pirate themed wedding to a few very close friends because a) the outfits were super hot b) those girls love pirates!! I thought they would love the pic and appreciate the coolness of the wedding…all I got back was a carefully worded email from one girl about how I was getting too excited about wedding planning and I should be careful because after the wedding I was going to have planning withdrawl after the wedding. sigh.

Yes, I had mentioned STDs the other day and the SO was like, wha? So little by little I’ve been trying to clue him in a bit more of my hive lingo.

@ Bamm: LMAO! Just post these things here on weddingbee, my friend… we are one big “cult” that others just don’t get, aren’t we?

I actually talked to Mr. S’s brother’s new girlfriend about “STDs” and it was fully out of my mouth before I remembered I wasn’t on Weddingbee and I shouldn’t have abbreviated. 😉

I didn’t even know what SO meant for the longest time!! haha A bird bowtie is an actual mini ribbon bowtie that people use to put on a bird groom figurine sometimes used as a cake topper! i.e. love birds
