So the newest Hostess pick of the week is an old post by Ms Fondue. This got me thinking about all of the posts I have saved in my bookmarks of amazing weddingbee goodness. I also like to browse the old posts from time to time just to be able to read other posts I may have not seen before. I want to share one of my favorites with you all.
My Pick: Mrs. Hot Wings Series “So you want to be a model”
This series centers around how to help couples become comfortable in front of a camera and has amazing advice and photos for examples.
Couples in Love
Prop It Up
Dip Baby, Dip
So whether it has great advice, some of your favorite photos or just a good read share with me your favorite old school posts.

It’s not exactly old, but it’s memorable —
The only blog post I have bookmarked is Hamster’s honeymoon in Africa. The pictures are just so amazing.
I have a lot of board threads favorited, though.

This is one that I think that has been the most helpful, I even saved the photos from it to show to the alterations department.

I haven’t followed the bee bloggers very much for probably the last year or so, so ALL my favorites are bees from 2008-2009.
Apparently this post by Mrs. Sea Breeze about the dinner games their guests played at their reception was recently picked for “Best of the ‘Bee”! Who knew?!
Also, Miss (Mrs.) Candy Corn’s wedding was one of my absolute favorites. I love her recaps: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. It was so beautiful and personal and I literally had tears in my eyes the first time I read her recaps.
And, if any of you don’t know the wonders of Mrs. Cheese, definitely check her out. She wrote all these incredible posts about the emotional aspects of preparing for marriage (learning to incorporate your individuality into a team, fearing that your marriage will fail, being afraid to take this big step, etc…). Sigh, I love Mrs. Cheese’s posts, but this was the only one I bookmarked.

Mrs. Cowboy Boots is one of my all time favorite bloggers.
THIS post here of her morning of is one of my absolute favorite posts ever on any wedding blog. She is amazingly beautiful, etheral, down to earth and it shines through especially on this post.
Neck in neck is Mrs. Cheese.
I <3 her because she’s real.
THIS post here of her wak down the aisle was one of the few posts ever to bring a tear to my eye. The stark honesty and fear is real and I love her for it!

- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
I’m trying to think way, way back….
I loved Mrs. Cola’s instructions on how to pee in a wedding dress. I’m wearing a tea-length dress, so I don’t need these instructions, but I still found this post both helpful and hilarious.
I’m drawing a blank on what some of my other favorites were. I’ll have to come back to this thread later. 🙂

I would glimpse at the bee monthly waay back in 2006/7- weddingbee would fill up my google search results and I’d be so irritated because I didn’t get it.. I started really liking weddingbee when Mrs. Tiramisu wrote her post on DIY LED lights
and was inspired by Mrs. Lemon’s DIY centerpieces to do my own.

- Wedding: August 2010 - Ocean View Villas/Jasmine Seafood Restaurant
@MsBrooklynA: Thanks for liking that series! They are some of my faves too.
Mrs Hot Cocoa inspired a lot of our wedding. Here are some of my fave posts where she talks about the sentiments behind her wedding.

Tirimasu’s paper lantern/tent post was awesome!
She was also my hero for this post: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/09/25/rainy-wedding-day/
I also bookmarked this at one time, to help with writing my own MOH speech.
Basically, just read all of Tiramisu’s posts!
And everyone should read Cherry Pie’s ceremony post at some point.
