- Wedding: April 2016
Hello to all the wonderful lady bees here!
I’m a really new here, and on top of it, a guy! Technically not a groom, since I married my wonderful lady 5 months ago, so a husband is more appropriate.
And now, how I found myself writing (and mostly reading) here.
It’s really simple. For the past eight months my lady was searching online for all things you can imagine concerning our coming wedding. She is the artist (I would like to say I’m the brains, but I’ll just keep it to I’m the muscle hahaha), and has an eye for beautiful things, plus she is really really very into researching things and stuff she likes.
Our marriage was mostly a big DIY thing, and we were on a tight budget back then, so I helped her out in any way I could. We discussed things together, shared opinions, I hepled with the diy decorations and all, but at the end of the day, she was the big achiever. I was only there to share opinions, calm her nerves and ease her stress, tone down her “analysis-paralysis” urge, and offer big big hugs.
So, in all those months, I became accuainted with the “weddingbees” phrase. Let me rephrase, not acquainted, make that best pals. Every now and then, my lovely wife would scream “Heeey, come over here, see this I found on weddingbees forum!”, or “No, not this, the girls on weddingbees say this seller, idea, color, whatever was not working”. And weddingbees this and weddinbgees that and weddingbees the other.
I was happy she found a valuable sourse of info that helped her reduce stress and gave her cool ideas to accomplish, but after we married and weeks turned to months, I was surprised to hear again the magic word. Yep, you got that right “weddingbees” again.
I asked her about it and she said she has started writing some posts here and you helped a lot, and she was still getting ideas about our future second (religious) marriage and so on. And I said to myself “OK, prepare for another year of wedding bees buzzing around your head” LOL
And then, a few days back, my lady left in a hurry and forgot her laptop open. Yes, you probably guessed right. On wedding bees forum. I sat down and read the post she was reading.
And then read some more. And some more. And although I should probably not have done that, I read a few of her posts here. Not snooping around or anything, no way in a million years I would do something like that, after all we have all our passwords written down on a note book in our office, she has my FB and mail passwords and I have hers, we have nothing to hide from each other, and If we do feel something is personal, we simply state it as such. Plus, her wedding bee account was always open, I mean she was always logged in. And some of the things she wrote was so touching for me and others gave me a better insight on how she thinks and feels and how she worries to have everybody happy, and others reminded me once again how lucky I am to have her by my side.
And here I am, reading through the night. And then I got the idea.
Wife is away on a short trip visiting her mom and I’m home with our cats. Why not open an account too and say hello to all the wonderful ladies here? (I bet there are some guys too. I remember not so long ago, my wife got misty eyed while reading a story of a guy here, his proposal and the wedding story…)
But don’t think I don’t have an ulterior motive, ladies, I do.
I’m gonna need all your help in choosing the right ring for her, and all your advices on other things too!
Glad I found you.
