- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
I love that I can come here on the boards and find women all over the country who are planning their weddings. It’s really cool to find such different people from different parts of the country and the world.
But after realizing that the two newest blogger bees (Turtle and Taco) are both from California, I did a very quick and unscientific count of the “Miss” bloggers. About 10 or 12 of them are from Cali, while most other states either are completely unrepresented, or only have one or two bloggers from there. On the “Mrs” side, there are about 20 or so California bloggers and many less from everywhere else.
I just found it interesting that with this geographical mix of people on the boards…
and such a high concentration of hive members from the northeast, that most of the bloggers are from the opposite coast.
I assume that Weddingbee gets more applications from California girls than from other states because the population of Cali is so high. I assume that the bloggers selected are indicative of where the applications are coming from. And I’m not complaining – I love reading about real weddings no matter where they’re from.
I just find it very interesting.

i agree, i just made a comment about this on the michigan boards… i love all the bloggers and i think a lot of the blogs can be applied to any wedding regardless of geographic location…
but, it would be easier to connect if even one or two blogger bees were from the area!

I was actually thinking the same thing when I saw 2 of the newest bloggers are from Cali. Don’t forget Lace and Paisley are relatively new and they’re also from there. It’d be nice to have some from other areas. I know that geography tends to dictate some really cool traditions that would be interesting to hear about. (Clearly I’m not doing any of those, or I’d share. LOL)

I noticed the same thing.

I noticed this too albeit for kind of selfish reasons. I applied to be a Miss and haven’t heard back yet. Everytime a new Cali Bee comes up I think “Oh no!” because I’m having my ceremony in L.A. and I think it’ll hurt my chances. Anywhooooo I was thinking “Wow, I’m sure all the Bees will have wonderful weddings but wouldn’t it be nice for gals in other states to see something they can relate to?” Just my two cents 😀

I think I’ve seen somewhere that they don’t get paid.

no they don’t get paid. I’ve noticed that too! The only Ohio bee that I know of is Bunny… oh well 🙂

There were a handful of Philly bees – Cupcake, Bruschetta, Candy Corn, Bell Pepper – but there hasn’t been one in a while. Oh, well.
I’d actually really enjoy reading more about weddings that take place outside of the U.S.

I noticed this as well but I am happy to see two current bees and one past bee having ceremonies in RI (my location) but interestingly enough, unless I’m mistaken none of them are actually from RI.

There have definetely been no Bees from WV where I had my wedding. There have been a fw Maryland bees which is where I lived when I was planning. I would like to see more DC area bees. Perfume is the main one I can think of and her wedding was actually at a Virginia Resort. D’Orsay was a bit close, but her location was really more Baltimore centric. I would like to see more diverse locatons and some more Winter or Fall weddings. It seems like most of the bees are May-August.

I can’t complain, I think Miss Scissors lives really really close to me. But I did notice a lot of CA brides. They probably just get a crap ton more apps from there.

I noticed that as well and wish there was a little more variety in Bee locations since I’m sure the geographical location plays a BIG factor in people’s wedding planning. Even within my own state, NYC is not the same as Upstate, which is not the same as Western NY. And I would love to see a wedding in NY that isn’t in the city… though I LOVE Mrs. Star’s and can’t wait to see Miss Hampter’s!

None of the Bee’s have had their ceremony in CT, but Mrs. Onion is from here. Actually, I had a class with her at UConn. (It took me a long time to figure out why she looked so familiar.) And it’s kinda funny/weird. We’re going to Curacao on our honeymoon, and so did she. (I only found her recaps after we decided that, too.)

I know we have 3 from Austin, but I believe not a one is from Dallas. Overall Dallas isn’t really represented even on our local board, which I think is a little odd considering the size of the city.
