@OzToCaBride: I would have told her too.

Personally I havent run across anyone, but I try not to say anything too personal or negative for just that reason. It makes “venting” virtually impossible, but better than getting verbally assaulted for posting sensitive information on the bee.

I know a handful of engaged ladies so I keep waiting to “bump into” someone I know on here but it hasn’t happened yet.

@OzToCaBride:  I actually ran into a former co-worker on here in the past!  I sent her a message on FB and she confirmed it was indeed her! I’m always telling people how wonderful this site is, so why wouldn’t they join?!  

If my friend, acquaintance, or family member was not being treated nicely, I would most likely intervene!  Why not?  I would in real life too!

I haven’t run accross anyone personally, but I did have my suspicions up a while ago that someone on here knew my Mother-In-Law and had been sharing my personal posts and rants with her.

Now that I just got home from our wedding I’ve started a new user name without revealing my old name so that I can keep that sort of thing from happening again. It sucks to loose my old post count, but when I want people to know it’s really me posting on an important topic I can always log into the old name again to chime in 🙂

I haven’t run into anyone I know personally. I did recommend this site to a friend but I don’t think she’s joined yet. 🙂

i’ve stumbled upon a bee i know IRL, a friend of a friend. not someone i see often, but we’re FB friends. i’ve never seen her post anything unbecoming, but she’s amazing and always manages to see the world in the most positive light- i admire that about her & could stand to be more like that! i didn’t mention ‘finding’ her, until i posted on a thread she started, then it was obvious- my picture is right there! so i said hi in my reply=) 

i’ve worried a few times about someone finding me on here & what they would say about some things i have said, but sometimes you need a place to get things out & have someone else keep you in check. i’m not sure the details of what you came across, but from the sounds of it, i would have told my friend, or showed it to her & then let her decide if she wanted to read it or not.

Not on WB, but on another board.  Actually it kind of sucked, she was not a very nice person to begin with but she was really rude on the boards and her attitude was what made me take someones suggestion and check out WB.   My mom will read the boards once in a while, she loves all the pictures.  Overall I have had a pretty relaxed wedding experience so if I did see someone I knew, that would be ok with me.

No, thank the lord. I don’t like chatting about rings and such with IRL friends.

In conversation with a coworker last fall, she asked how my wedding planning was going and suggested that I look into this great website called “weddingbee.” Erm, I’ve been a member since last January…. I never did find her, and she never mentioned finding me. She was/is a waiting lady, so she may just be a lurker.

I haven’t run into anyone IRL that is also on Weddingbee, but there are lots of bees I would love to be friends with IRL… 🙂

No but one of my friends found me (actually I had posted something that sounded weird too and caused a little drama!)

I kind of always wonder if I’ll see people I know, but I don’t know that many girls planning weddings right now

Nope, never. Though it’d be kind of cool to meet someone else from the Hive!

I am not very anonymous on here as in I dont blur photos and i have written my name a few times but, I dont worry because I dont think there are too many South Australian bees. In saying that I have never vented about someone I know, except Darling Husband lol
