    I don’t remember how exactly I found weddingbee when I was waiting. I think design*sponge linked me to a wedding blog which linked me to another wedding blog which linked me to weddingbee. I was so happy to find Weddingbee, and even happier that I had already found it once I got engaged.

    A friend of mine asked for help in planning her wedding. It’s something I’ve always been interested in so I jumped on the job! I first fell in love with Rock ‘n’ Roll Bride and still check it out quite frequently … and I don’t remember what led me to weddingbee but ever since then, I’ve been hooked. Coincidentally, right about the time this friend asked me to help plan is when Cam and I got serious!

    I was randomly searching for anything wedding when helping my best friend plan her wedding. Found it last January, but have only recently started actually joining in on the boards.

    I’ve known about Weddingbee for a while, but not the Boards, just the Blog for inspiration.  I write wedding related articles.  I learned about the Waiting Board from a friend.

    I was doing some preliminary research and found Weddingbee through Google. I can’t even remember what I was searching for. Probably colors/themes ideas.

    Funny thing is, I think I may have googled it first, but then didn’t understand the site. Months later, I got linked in from a different site, probably APW or OnceWed, and then decided I would figure it out.

    I don’t remember what was confusing about the site to me at first, maybe it changed!

    Oh dang what a difficult question lmbo!! I think I was searching for pictures for a client and then found a gallery in the google images and from there I saw the boards and it’s been history 😀

    eta the only waiting board that has ever been this friendly was the wedding channel WAY WAY WAY back when (remember I have been engaged before) I think 2000-2005 or 6ish, before they made the board changes to resemble the knot.  There was also a great magazine, I think it was bridal guide that was really awesome too. It had a waiting section or perhaps a wedding section when I was engaged, I cannot remember… Yes  I’ve always been detail and wedding obsessed… so sue me 😀

    The Knot. Someone linked it on their boards (I think she actually linked to a classified she had here). I was there looking for ideas and feeling scorned for not having a ring yet. 🙂

    I love the Mr. Bee option… I was never a waiting bee, so I didn’t want to skew the results, but I googled “Wedding communities” and then weeded through to find one that I would feel at home with… Hello Weddingbee!

    I was at the end of my tether, (still am to a certain extent but anyway…) I wanted advice on how to help stay patient while I waited. I googled my misery and it popped up wedding bee. I read a few topics, wanted to join in and so I joined! I figured it would be good to use ideas from other people to get a feel of what is out there. I’ve been to 3 weddings in my lifetime. One I was a bridesmaid at my cousins wedding aged 8 and the other two was evening only as i was working on one of them, and family only ceremony at the other. So it is fair to say I have naff all experience of weddings or how to plan them.

    If anything I’m worrying more seeing some of the problems other bees have encountered :S but I LOVE that it’s a friendly place that we can let our hair down with like-minded people.

    I randomly searched for candle centerpieces on google.  Got to a blog (ikea hacked i think?) that showed Mrs. Lemon’s centerpeices.  Sniffed around a bit and saw Mrs. Martini’s ring, asked her for details, and the rest as they say, is history.  Still reading a year and half later.Smile

    I found it through a link on smitten when they had a blogger who was waiting too and someone suggested she check out tjis board. I had actually been on the blog once before but not understood what it was, but now I love the boards!
