While planning my wedding and searching the web for wedding ideas I stumbled onto Wedding Bee. I thought I’d get a few ideas, read some interesting blogs and maybe contribute here and there but never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be here after the wedding. Why would I need to log onto WB? … the wedding is over. But like most of you here I am after the wedding and still loving it. I’ll even admit I had WB withdrawls when I was on my honeymoon for 10 days and no way to respond to posts. Sure, I could read them but couldn’t contribute. With all the boards (waiting, wedding, babies…etc) we could be here forever!!! Maybe they’ll start a geriatric board… Bahaha!!!! Guess I’ll be a lifer.
Did any bee’s think they’d be here after the wedding? If you’re waiting or engaged, do you see yourself here after the “I do’s”?

@Ill Be Mrs B: Probably to post some photos and give advice to other brides who want to hear from somone who’s already married.

I don’t see myself going anywhere any time soon. I have made lots of friends on the Bee. 🙂 I want to see how their lives play out as well as share mine. I’m not sure exactly how long after I’ll be here, because you never know, but I definitely LOL’d at the Geriatric Board!

I took a bit of a break, but recently have been around more again. It is awesome to see what other bees are doing, give ideas and advice to other bees planning their big days and then also all the other boards for after the wedding that you mentioned. I don’t know if I’ll ever leave!

I didn’t think I would be when I joined 2 years ago (I had a different profile:)), but I don’t htink I will leave any time two.They have really expanded the TTC and nesting boards since I joined and of course I still like the pretty dresses!

I didn’t think I would be, and I actually left for like a whole year after the wedding, and then somehow I got addicted to the baby boards and now I’m back! Oops. 🙂

I love reading the posts, getting to know the “style” of other bee’s and their personalities. I’m eager to read their reponce to the OP.
My favorite is sharing my experience with wedding planning, giving advise and helping other bee’s in need. I love to read the OP thanking everyone for their help or reading the final outcome to their issue/plea for help.
There are a lot of great ladies (men too) here who truly care about other people. If I only ever know them through WB, I consider myself blessed.

- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
I didn’t think I’d be on as much – but actually, with the wedding stress over, I have spent MORE time here now. I like catching up with people and stalking the planning bees, as well as the nesting stuff. 🙂

jaguar I agree with the stress of the wedding behind me I like coming to the bee to see what people are up to, look at re-caps, check some ring porn out or to contribute to posts. It’s more enjoyable when you’re here in a relaxed state.

I never planned on it, but I really like giving advice and helping other girls find stuff for their weddings, and I have gotten to know people on the boards and just can’t seem to stop checking them!
I just have to be a bit careful because now I find myself on the baby board and we aren’t TTC yet! Sometimes I get kinda goal focused, like okay the wedding is over, onto the next thing…let’s look at baby stuff! So I try to not get too involved in that because right now I’m still pretty young and just want to enjoy our life together as newlyweds =)

I knew I would be. There are alot of bees that I am waiting to see how their weddings went, and adding more everyday. There are even some waiting bees that I am waiting for their wedding recaps for, so I may be here a Very Long Time, LOL.

I care about so many of the bees here, I can’t imagine dropping out after the wedding is over. I’ll probably participate more on the nesting, home, and babies boards though.

I actually joined after the wedding lol! Being on here and reading from other bees has really helped me deal with my wedding regret and I like being able to give advice where I can. I really wish I’d had some who’d already done it all to give me advice when I was planning!
