Just wanted to try this out, I’ve heard good things about this community. I’ve been using the Knot for planning purposes for my July 14th wedding, but have been verbally abused on their message boards ten too many times. Just looking for some friendly brides to chat with and bounce ideas off of. 🙂

Welcome! Mine is in August, so also getting excited, tell us what your theme, color, type of wedding you are planning? This site rocks, and the Bees are my un-official bridemaids as they have helped so much in the process!

Thanks for the warm welcome, ladies. 🙂 I really appreciate it.
My theme is A Midsummer Night’s Dream…really earthly, gardeny feel. 🙂 The ceremony is taking place in the gazebo at a historical park in my hometown in Iowa, with the reception at the country club. Our colors are chocolate brown, sage green, and hints of pale pink. I’m thinking lantern centerpieces with pink flowers and greenery around them.
I’m getting really anxious and excited for it to get here!

Welcome! i hope you enjoy it here! I am also a former Knotty…but there was just too much nonsense there for me to deal with. I like it here much more!
I hope your planning is going well 🙂

Welcome! I ended up here from theknot too…after I got snarky and rude comments from some of the girls. EVERYONE here is soooooooo pleasant and supportive and honest. LOVE this board, and I’m sure you will too! I can see myself staying on here long after the wedding too 🙂 Your theme sounds beautiful! Can’t wait to see some pictures 🙂

Welcome to the Hive!!
Oo, your plans sound beautiful! Where are you from in Iowa? My brother went to college at Simpson and lived in Des Moines for a long time afterward. 🙂

I’m from the ice cream capitol of the world (Blue Bunny…haha), Le Mars, near Sioux City. :p My claim to fame, I guess. Born and raised there, and my family is there now, but we’ve also lived in a small town really close to Des Moines, and a town in central Iowa near Fort Dodge. I have some friends at Simpson, awesome!
