I REALLY hope no one is mad that I’m posting this… Until everyone decides what to do and the best plan of action for keeping the list or if it should die, I made a makeshift waiting list. No, I don’t want to be in charge forever. I just know some bees were curious. I will update this weeks list based on feedback that the waiting bees give me in real time – if I missed their engagement or their request to be added since the last list.
This is a list of Bees who are in a relationship and currently waiting for a proposal from their significant other. As these Bees get engaged, they are crossed off the list and a blurb about their engagement is posted. Each week, a new list is posted to reflect new additions and recent proposals.
Getting Added: If you would like to be added to the list, please ask to be added in a comment below. You’ll show up on next week’s list!
Getting Crossed Off: When you become engaged, please share the happy news in a comment on the current list (and include the date of your engagement). Comment on this post or send me a message if I missed your proposal, you have corrections or suggestions, you would like to be removed from the list, or you have changed your username.
It’s that time of year again – the spring clean-up of the Waiting List!
Keeping Your Position: If you appear on The 2/24/14 Waiting List and would like to stay on the list, please comment on the Spring 2014 Waiting List Clean-Up post no later than 3/30/14. The 3/31/14 Waiting List will reflect the removal of any waiting Bees who do not participate in this clean-up.
Here is the waiting list: 3/17/14 Waiting List

ceemarie7: this is a little weird. So people sign up if they are waiting for a proposal? I never heard of this

saritacg7: yeah it’s a “weddingbee” thing I guess, I hadn’t heard of it until many google searches lead me here. Personally, my SO and I went shopping for a ring last July and we talk frequently about getting married it is just a matter of when we are both ready to start planning a wedding, but I guess I’m just “waiting” for him to officially propose.
StuporDuck: Many thanks for your encouragement . I agree it is part of the “culture” and is what leads many bees to the site. It is what brought me to the site, so I’m sorry to see it struggle, I’m not sure if we should just let it die or not :/

As weird as it may seem…thank you!! 🙂 The other one sort of just disappeared despite some reassurance that it wouldn’t yet. Having moved my way up quite a bit, it was oddly disappointing to not see it every week!

chic_and_fabulous: I didn’t do a complete wating list post like it has been done in the past, there was still debate on how the waiting list should be done moving forward, that’s why I called it a “makeshift” waiting list. Also, there is a selection process to become the list keeper and that’s why I said I hope I didn’t make anyone mad by posting the list.
See this thread:
The old layout got caught in the spam filters of the site and the current process of how the list is kept is not really feasible with the new Weddingbee.
There are a lot of great ideas in that thread about how to handle the list moving forward, but I didn’t want to take it and change it without general approval from the bees, so this is not ideally how it will be posted every week. If you or anyone else has ideas of how to move forward, jump on over to that thread and I’m sure we can all come up with something that will make everyone happy!

winstonchurchill: I feel weird about posting it to be honest… But, I felt the same way as you, at first I was like, oh well maybe I’m over the waiting list anyway, and then I kept going back to, I wonder where I would be on the list now and it is fun to interact and get to know the girls and the site before you start planning your wedding!

Thank you for doing this…for the fact that it became up for grabs I don’t feel like you stepped on anyone’s toes. I asked before all of the changes to be added and looked several times to find nothing new so it’s so exciting to finally be on the list and see something in motion!
