Mrs. Shortcake!  She kind of left us hanging with her horrible photographer.  I wanted to hear about the stuff that went well.

Count me as one of the ones waiting for pictures! We had an awesome wedding and I can’t wait to share it. I’ve even started writing the recaps in advance and trying to imagine which pictures to put in. 🙁

Do you all mind if I make a suggestion? If you like (or are eagerly awaiting) a bee’s recaps, shoot her a comment and let her know! I’m not quite sure why this is, but recap posts often get significantly fewer comments than other posts. As a blogger who’s about to finish her recaps, I can definitely say that was true for me, at least. Comments are what let us know that people are interested in what we’re writing, and I have to admit, I sometimes wondered, “am I wasting people’s time? do they not like reading these? should I stop?” when I had a small-ish response. So, if you really love reading a particular blogger’s recaps, let her know! I think I can speak for all the bees in saying that we LOVE hearing from you!

@ILikePink:

Mrs. Paisley had the most discouraging wedding ever because it’s JUST as beautiful as those weddings you see on inspiration boards and in wedding shoots and you cut yourself slack that yours won’t be that awesome because you’re like, “Oh, well NOBODY’s wedding could be THAT perfect, it’s just a shoot,” and then you see hers and you’re like…. oh… somebody’s actually CAN be that perfect. :/

I really miss Mrs. Bearcub. She was, hands down, my favorite bee, and I started reading the site because of her. I also have not been able to access her blog recently, either. We miss you, bearcub!!

I think it’s really sad when bees disappear or don’t do their recaps. I understand that personal issues come up, but sometimes it seems it’s not for any reason. There are so many people who apply and would do a great job, it’s not fair!

@kirabee: That’s kind of how I feel too.  So many people apply to be blogger Bees and get denied, and then people get selected that don’t finish their recaps.  It’s kind of frustrating, learning so much about someone’s wedding just to have them disappear in the middle of sharing everything.

Then again, blogging is probably hard work and very time consuming – I know how busy life after the wedding gets, and as time passes, I have lost so much interest in our wedding.  I couldn’t imagine recapping it, LOL.  Who knows what is going on in their personal lives too.  You just never know.

@missmouse29: I can understand that. Today is our six months married and we still haven’t gotten our album, just our proofs. Photographers get busy too! 🙂

Mrs. Shortcake finished her wedding recaps on her personal blog (ourlittlehaus.com)

Her whole blog is worth a read too, her daughter is super cute.

@kirabee: That’s how I feel. So many people apply and get declined, but some of the ones who are accepted don’t even attempt a recap.

I wonder if anyone has ever gone back and looked at the percentage of bees who finish recaps and sign off vs. stop mid-recap vs. disappear without ever starting recaps? I might have a skewed perspective but it seems like probably less than half actually finish their recaps. 

I do understand why a lot of them don’t… which if I had to guess is less about being busy and more about being “over it” by the time they get their pictures back (I’m a month out from my wedding and I’m already pretty much over it! lol). 

But I have extra respect for those who come back and power through their recaps. 🙂

The recaps really are the best parts!

I love reading Mrs. Buttons recaps.   She is writing them, but I am too inpatient to wait for more! It feels like she hasn’t written one in forever even though I think she wrote one earlier this week….
