Hi! I love reading recaps and whilst sites like SMP are nice with gorgeous pictures, I miss the in-between story that is told with recaps.
Rather than wading through the archives to fine a set that I haven’t read yet, I thought I’d ask for recommendations.
Which Bee’s recaps did you love reading the most? Preferably one who has finished their recaps because I don’t like being disappointed when I realise that the recaps I’m reading finish half-way through. (Though I totally understand why and how it happens as was explained in the awesome blogger stats thread).
So, fess up, which did you love to read?

Well favorites are really going to depend on each bride – since many people read recaps that are similar to their own weddings! I really enjoyed Mrs Pencils because her wedding was very similar to mine. Outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, hot as balls on the wedding day, same colors, some DIY aspects, etc. I related to her a lot! I also really enjoyed Mrs Cherry Pies and Mrs Cowboy Boots (they both finished) because they had so many adorable and well thought out details.

Thanks! I realise everyone’s favourites will differ, but that’s the fun of it! It means I get a whole range of recommendations. Because I love reading all kinds of recaps. 🙂
I’ll definitely check out the ones you mentioned.

Def hands down Mrs. Cowboy Boots was my favorite overall wedding EVER. From the details, location, wedding and bride in generall. All ahmazing!
I also love Mrs. Cheese’ because she also had a amazing wedding but she also blogs from the more emotional side.

I’ve only been on the bee since June ’10 and I have read and/or commented on every single bee who did a recap since then. I didn’t comment on every single recap but I commented on most of them. So, if you started recapping since June last year, I’ve loved various aspects of your wedding. I have gone to older posts and been inspired by Mrs. Hamster, Mrs. Cupcake, Mrs. Eggplant, Mrs. Cheese, Mrs. Cowboy Boots, Mrs. Cherry Pie, Mrs. Chick…..okay, I am going to sound like a stalker but sometimes I just go on the blog, get on a bees posting and read every single thing. There is only one bee who is black, lives in NYC and getting married down south and is about my age and I love her wedding but I also love those that are not like mine too. I wish there were more bees that weren’t all DIY. The DIY goddesses make me envious with their cricuts and Silhouettes and scapbooking and excel spreadsheets 🙁

Mrs. Gummi Bear is THE BEST!

Pencils, Cherry Pie, and Cowboy Boots have been my favorite recaps. I also love everything Cheese has written, but a lot of her posts are more reflective on life and relationships than wedding-specific.

I loved Champagne and Powder Puff, probably because they were planning when I was! Also, Meatball, Kitten, Gloss, Dumpling and Hot Cocoa! Can’t pick just a few!

I loved, loved, loved Champagne, because she is a fellow winter bride. And we had the same color palette 🙂

I loved Champagne too!! I have to confess that I haven’t read all the recaps of all the Bees, but Buttons (still in progress) and Turtle are two of my faves. Ooh, and Mouse. And Star. I’m sure I’ll think of more. Oh also Meatball! I loved the Meatball recaps! They were very music-centric and I actually stole one of their wedding songs. 🙂
