Okay so I’ve been a long time admirer and reader of the bee (well not super long more like a couple of months), and I felt that maybe it was time for me to introduce myself.
Now I don’t quite think I fit into an particular category here on the boards, I’m not married, engaged, waiting, a vendor or even a Bridesmaid or Best Man for a friend. I joined the Bee simply because I love weddings. I’m a bit on the younger side at 19, but I’m still as infatuated.
I do have a Boyfriend or Best Friend at the moment, and even though we are serious about each other, we have a lot of things we want to accomplish personally (like finish university!) before we can seriously start thinking about a future together. So I don’t really think I can qualify as a waiting bee yet!
I have a self-proclaimed type A personality, so I love being organized and planning; which is probably why I love weddings! So of course all my friends think I should just become a wedding planner, which is something I maybe interested in doing in the future, but for now I’m happy working on my Human Resources degree.
I’m also really crafty, so all the DIY projects here make me so happy. I’m seriously offering all those local bee to take me up on an offer to help you guys out with any of your projects! I want in on some DIY goodness, until its my turn I guess, lol.
Overall, I’m just a down to earth, pretty clumsy, and warm person, who would just really like to help and give my opinions on the boards. I’ve loved getting to know everyone on the boards as well as the current bloggers (Miss.Panther you are my favorite!).
Anyways I’ve been going on about myself for too long, any other bees joined for any other reasons than to plan your wedding?

WElcome! There are 2 sections of the boards that I frequent that are not wedding related – the Not Wedding Related (not wedding related) section and the Nesting boards. The Not Wedding Related has everything on it – from book club, movie reviews, discussing TV shows or politics or world happenings to talking about relationship issues with boyfriends or friends.
The nesting boards are mainly meant for Newlyweds/Mothers to be/Mothers but I Think you could find some good stuff on there too. People might post stuff about decorating their house, landscaping, asking about baby names, etc. Even though Im not TTC (trying to conceive) or Pregnant I will read through some of the pregnant bees posts because I find them interesting for the future!
Anywas, welcome!!! I think there is a lot more to the bee than just weddings and I think you will have plenty to comment on/keep you occupied!! 🙂

@PitBulLover: Thanks so much!! That is so true about there being so many other aspects to weddingbee. I always tend to give my opinion whenever I can, regardless of where its actually posted. My favorite thread so far has been the one about the new Harry Potter movie!
I realize that a lot of the topics may not necessarily apply to me now, but just think how knowledgeable i’ll be when I can relate. Wow that mades me sound like a kid, I swear I’m a lot more mature!

Welcome to the bee! Wish you lived closer cos I could use some serious DIY help from someone who doesn’t frequently glue their skin to things while attempting to use super glue. 🙂
