@spaneshal: I just joined recently, after talking to my family about the not being engaged yet issue (see my Need Advice ! post!), but my SO doesn’t know I am asking random other girls who are in the same boat for advice! I figure I will let him know about the awesomeness that is weddingbee once we ARE engaged, and being able to talk with other couples will help plan a wedding!

I’m not waiting, but  I tell my Fiance.  Usually I’ll go through the boards and open up all ther threads that look interesting in separate tabs – sometimes I’ll have about 20 tabs open, and he sees this and then comes and looks. He usually laughs at the “silly” things I am ready.  He calls me a girl for it. But I don’t mind if he knows!

@spaneshal:

I think my SO would have a panic attack if I told him!! I work from home a lot though, so he thinks its totally normal that I’m online constantly. Maybe you can tell him, but gloss over it a little. You don’t want to scare him with the bee, but you dont want him thinking that you’re up to something sketchy. Good luck!

My mister knows that I look through wedding planning blogs and is fine with it as long as it “makes me happy” though I don’t think he knows the extent of my activity here on the ‘bee. I mention it casually every so often but other than that, he just shrugs and goes about his business.

@spaneshal: I’m in the same boat and the Bee too has become my pre-engagement sanctuary. My SO knows I come on here and wasn’t as freaked out as I imagined he would be. Apparently he finds it sweet and endearing that I’m committed to our future and am looking forward to becoming his wife. But that’s just him and I can’t vouch for anyone else’s reaction – lol I think I lucked out. He gets it though – this is where I can get all the wedding talk out of my system so I’m not continuously going on about dresses and such with him when we’re years away from actually getting married.

I haven’t told my Boyfriend or Best Friend, but seeing as now if you type “w” into the address bar on my laptop weddingbee is the first suggestion to come up, I think he must have seen the web address at some point. I hope he doesn’t go snooping though because if he saw my username he would definitely know it was me!

Prior to us getting engaged, he knew what I was doing butttt I had an excuse because I was working as a wedding coordinator. Now that we’re engaged, I have no shame! Haha

Yes, he knows.  He’ll peek on once in awhile as well to see what I’m up to. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was a lurker before getting engaged and told him about a cool website I found but that was it, after we got engaged and I joined and became obssesed with it he found out my account name and now sometimes checks my activity for fun. I know some might find it weird but I tell him about it anyways so it’s fine.

I tell him it’s “my forum website.” I’ve always described it to him as a women’s website. He doesn’t pry further. I think he gets it. He has him “man” sites and I have mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

He knows I have wedding websites where I go on and read through the forums and that I occasionally post things to get opinions. I don’t think he realizes I post pictures and talk about him though. He probably wouldn’t like me posting pictures of him. I always log out though, so he can’t see what I post and accidentally see my dress or something.
