yes! my sister is my Maid/Matron of Honor and the other day I was chatting with a different Maid/Matron of Honor who came here for ideas and I thought…”hmmm…should have picked a less obvious name!!!”

Yes!  My sister just got engaged and told me she joined.  She will know it is me for sure!

Haha not really here. If anyone finds me out good for them! But I’m not worried about it. I do like being anonymous so I can vent though.

I don’t like it when other engaged couples take over the conversation about THEIR wedding when they got engaged after us and their wedding is after ours. I think that’s kind of selfish.

Haha I have a friend who got engaged a few months ago and I haven’t told her about this place yet.  I’m sure that she will know it’s me since my Avatar is a picture of me.  And I’m on here all the time so I will look like a big loser!

I do keep this place a secret from people.  🙂  What can I say?  I like having a place to vent!

haha yeah I totally know what you mean. 

Actually a girl I knew got engaged right after me, and ended up finding me on here, reading all my posts and then found one where I had actually posted something about her that wasn’t meant for her to read. oops. we’re not “friends” anymore..

so that I’m often worried about, people who knew me finding me and then getting mad at me for what I post. I try to be careful, but some of my posts I put on here because it’s easier asking a bunch of people I don’t know than it is those that know me and the people I know.

Nope. Two people from my real life have already found me on here! In general I don’t post anything I’d be embarrassed to say in real life. I have asked my Fiance not to check up on me here and I believe he doesn’t… but thats about it 🙂

Yes, I do not want people to find out who I am. My FH wants me to be discrete on here and everytime I post something kinda personal on here I am afraid that I will blow my cover. lol But I try to remind myself that if anyone that I know finds something on here that they don’t like, at least it is the truth.

yeah there are a few things I’ve lied about on my profile to disguise who I am, or just left it blank. Because I did post a couple things where I needed some serious advice, but I sure hope no one I know found it haha.

haha, same boat here, glad I’m not the only one! there were 3 of our friends who got engaged after us too and maybe more this year. i signed up here even before we got engaged (lol) with an obvious username but luckily I haven’t posted anything yet so I signed up for this new account 🙂 And I’ve been pretty mum about discussing wedding forums with them.

Yeah I haven’t told my friends about the bee 🙂 I like having a private place to vent!  Probably should have chosen a different name/avatar though…
