    I’m all about it. It’s how we start a lot of wedding related conversations actualy. A lot of times he looks over and asks what I’m doing: “Emm… What do you think?”. Lately I don’t even have to answer. I look at him and when he laughs I know he gets it.

    He knows that I go to a message board a lot because I will tell him about things going on, but he does not know that it is a wedding message board. Hopefully he will never find out because he will easily recognize my screen name and think I am nutso!!

    Heck yeah…lol. I don’t call it wedding bee though; I call it “my blog”. I usually only talk about “my blog” when there is a good post about something Not Wedding Related. He likes when I read “my blog” because then he can control the TV.

    J knows that I post on a ‘girly message board’ but he has no clue (that I know of) that it’s a wedding board. Although, I’m sure he has a good idea that it is in fact, a wedding message board because when I say ‘girly stuff’ or ‘stuff’ to him, he knows exactly what I’m talking about.

    I started reading weddingbee about 6 months before getting engaged. I was dying to start planning and was having so much fun looking at inspiration and it was nice to have an outlet so I didn’t feel like I had to put pressure on him with lots of wedding talk. I mentioned the blog a few times before he proposed when we were talking about wedding stuff but that was about it. Now he knows that I read it every day and thinks the bee names are hilarious. Went to the ATL meet up this weekend and he sent me a text asking how the “bees” were haha

    He just glances at the screen and most of the time he just knows.  He just shakes his head and talks about me and my wedding stuff.  Although everyone once and a while he’ll try to read my post.  I close the computer down and go on about needing privacy he just laughs.

    No way.  He doesnt understand my obsession with facebook… i doubt he would understand this! With Facebook he thinks it is crazy that all of these people look at my pictures … and THAT is a social network where you can choose who sees the pictures!  If he knew i posted our pictures on the Bee.. he would probably be upset.  His family is SUPER weird about putting things on the internet.  Like his brother just got a divorce and they are all pissed that his ex wife posts pictures of her kids on facebook.  I try to explain to them that the only people who can see them are her direct friends but they think that is just crazy.

    I haven’t told my Boyfriend or Best Friend.  I’m afraid he might freak out if he sees me looking at wedding related stuff.  He does not like or understand facebook either so he probably wouldn’t understand this.  As soon as I feel we are on the same page about engagement and marriage then I won’t be so sneaky. LOL

    Yes, as soon as The Canadian put down the deposit on my e-ring, I was googling one day and came across this site.  Next time we saw one another and were having a bite to eat, I told him I’d come across it and was telling him about it and how excited I was.

    He seemed happy for me (also for himself I’d imagine as he wouldn’t have to listen to me as much ha).

    I then told him when I had joined and that my avatar is a pic that he sourced for me as an in-joke some time ago and he loves my username as it’s part my nickname he calls me!

    Oh, he knows! I talk about it a bunch since I get a lot of ideas from here, but he doesn’t mind! We both agree it’s a good way for me to delve into the wedding world while we’re still so far away from our wedding itself 😉

    We read it together all the time.  I am always showing him cute ideas and pretty dresses.  I also read him controversial topics and discuss them with him, they have actually started some very interesting conversations as he also reads all of the replies.  I have also read him alot of the ettiquette topics, he finds these really interesting as he did not grow up with knowing ettiquette.  He is quite traditional and really gets into knowing the newances of ettiquette, he really wants to pass these along to his tween son.

    I’m guilty of: “so I saw/read/got inspired by that wedding blog I read…”

    I talk about it with him all the time!  I call it either “my stupid forum” or “the donkey forum”.  The first because I was trying to rationalize my use of it to him (his response was, “Love, I know you’re interested in wedding stuff, and that’s fine.  I’m amused by your name for it, but I really don’t mind you looking”), and the second because I like to pretend that I’m looking at something else (even though it’s totally obvious I’m not), so once when he asked me what I was looking at, for some reason the first thing that came to mind was a forum about the donkey breeding scene in DFW.  I think it’s because one of my friends is really into donkeys, mules, and horses, and she had posted something about it on Facebook earlier that day.  Yeah, it’s weird.

    BUT ANYWAY.  I bring it up with him all the time, and I routinely look at it while he’s around.  He knows my screen name and has threatened to start stalking me on here (I love you, Mr. Moon!).

    MAYBE I’ll tell him once we’re engaged..but this is where I vent things that only girls would understand! I’m really happy I found this site..It makes me feel like I’m not crazy..just girly 🙂
