Hello ladies! I’m not super new to watching around here but I finally decided I could actually sign up. I am a “Waiting Bee” :).
Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for about a year, and so far I know that he asked for and received his parents blessing for us to get married and is going to ask mine soon! I know, not everyone thinks that is important but to us it was very important that our parents approve. So now I know the proposal is coming…eventually. So I hope to get to know you ladies more as we wait/plan and all that stuff!
So what exactly is with the list? I understand it is people who are commonly around and who are wating/recently got engaged but what is the numbering about? And how do people move up? I usually lurked around the other boards (like DIY and relationship) so I’m not too familar with how this one works. Hope to understand soon.

Welcome! = ) We are glad to have you!
As for the waiting list, I think the numbers are just dates? I haven’t looked at it in a long time. I was engaged when I joined WB so I never really got into the list.

I’m not a lady in waiting, but the list is numbered by when you requested to join the list. When you get engaged, you are crossed off and everyone under you moves up a spot.

I wish I could explain the list but I am not too sure myself. But still, welcome to the Hive! Officially.

Welcome to weddingbee!
From my understanding, people are added at the bottom of the list and as others get engaged or decide to stop waiting, they are taken off the list. This moves everyone else up on the list.
I’m not on the waiting boards much myself anymore but they are a great group of ladies!

Welcome to the ranks of posting bees. We’re glad you are here! I hope your wait isn’t long, but it is very reassuring to know that he already asked your parents approval! 😀

@Whimsical.Sprite: I know! I’m so excited! I made myself wait to make an account till I knew it was for sure coming and not in the incredibly distant future, if I had one I would have spent way to much time on here.

Welcome to the bee boards! I hope your wait is a short one and you’ll find lots of other bees similar to you here

@Whimsical.Sprite: It’s not that reassuring. Mine waited 8 months between the asking and the asking.

Yep, still waiting and it’s been MONTHS since he spoke with mine.

Welcome! It sounds like you won’t be on the list for very long. 🙂
