I am always surprised at how disconnected some of the Bee bloggers seem from what is discussed on these boards, especially etiquette wise. It seems like they think because they get to post incessantly on here that they are immune to bad etiquette or something.
Here are the ones I’ve noticed in particular. I’m not naming names, because a)I don’t want to take the time to look them up and b)it’s probably more than one.
–The blogger who posted for all of us to vote on her photo to win a contest. I think this has been poo-pooed ad nauseum on these boards.
–The bloggers who invite more guests than their venues will hold.
–I’ve seen this one a few times. Putting registry info in their invitations.
–Buying the bridesmaids only gifts that will be used for the wedding. It’s been unoffically decided around here that it’s a bad idea.
I’m sure there are scores more. And I’m not saying any is really right or wrong. It just seems like they post their blogs for us to read, but they don’t really spend any time on the boards. Seems like our bloggers should be bees who frequent the place a bit more and are more in tune with their readers.

I LOVE your attitude and I totally agree, but you’ll probably get flamed for this because people don’t like being told they are rude/tacky.

I always think of them as separate things. I never ever read the blogs. I am here only for the boards. I don’t think the bloggers read the boards, and are here solely to blog. I agree there is a disconnect.

I thought the bee was not as strict regarding etiquette and more about hey…let’s think about this logically and what’s going to work for us, the couple. That was why I joined this board. Perhaps I’m wrong.

Not everybody goes by the “rules of etiquitte”… I certainly didn’t! We put registry information in the invitations and it was APPRECIATED… We invited more than what would fit in the venue, and we are glad we did, we wound up 50 UNDER capacity! The majority of what my BM’s got from me was for the wedding, but they all loved it… I don’t think I really understand the point in pointing out what you don’t feel is proper.. Not everybody sticks to the etiquitte books for every little thing. What people do is their choice, and if they like it, more power to them, blogger bee or not!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they are right or wrong. I’m saying they blatantly do things that get people ripped on the boards.

The blogs make me zzzzzzzzzzz most of the time.
I like that the first one that pops up when you hit “blog” is one you’re talking about.. haha!

@lh526: I’m genuinely intrigued by one of your bullets. The registry info in with the invitations? I’m so confused. Not being sarcastic at all, I’m just honestly totally clueless about invitation ettiquette.
Every wedding i’ve ever been too in my life has put in a little card with the invitation that has registry info on it. Where is the registry info supposed to be per proper ettiquette? Or are you saying the registry info is printed on the actual invite, like underneath the ‘blah blah invites you to join them blah blah’
Perhaps you can enlighten me? or point me in the direction of where I can find the info? I’m so intrigued!
