    When I looked at wedding blogs I always loved reading the stories before the pictures so I could really understand and appreciate the pictures. I never look at the styled shoots, only real weddings. And I don’t care for the DIY details but I like seeing how the theme comes together. I also like seeing the bride’s look from dress to accessories to shoes to hair.

    What I’m really interested in is topics related to relationships, the transition to married life, wifehood, etc.  I really like proposal stories, how we met stories, etc.  I sometimes like how-tos.  Stuff about interesting traditions is cool too.

     

    I have minimal interest in all the fluff.

    I mostly pay attention to the photos of real weddings, vendors, reviews, recommended and advertised websites, and wedding dress and accessory lines.  

    I care very little about most couples and their stories, so I tend to skip over those parts of the blogs.

    @Season:  Why are you surprised? 

    To be quite honest, most couples, their stories, and what they have to say just aren’t interesting. They are average people who are having an average wedding, and they have an average story. Every so often a couple will stand out and I’ll read about them. 

    I do like reading about and seeing people’s marriages and relationships and seeing their weddings, but the stories on wedding blogs usually aren’t worth reading.

    I like the real weddings, the DIY, the beauty advice, and accessories. The stories aren’t usually worth reading.

    I read the blogs  when I first started following WeddingBee. I no longer do so, because they quickly bored me. One can only read so many posts where they post 8 different STD’s and tell us about their heartwrenching decision process.

    I would rather participate in an exhcnage of information on the Boards.

    I don’t read the text usually, and while I loved looking at the styled weddings and everything in the beginning stages (and I still do), I’d much rather see real weddings and DIY ideas.

    Yeah, I usually skip the text, unless it’s about etiquette or planning or somtehing; ie. I don’t really read the personal stories.

    I love the DIY pics and photos of real weddings. I also like roundups (example– budget dresses roundup, romantic veils roundup, modern engagement rings on a budget roundup, etc.)—they’re really helpful to see the spectrum of what’s out there on different price levels.

    I think it totally depends on what “phase” of planning and decision-making I’m in. Like, a month ago I would have skipped over all the hair and makeup stuff but now I hover over them and contemplate.
