- Swiss Miss to Bee
- 8 years ago
- Wedding: October 2010
So yeah it’s like super early and I got woken up after no sleep by some doggies wanting to go out…and I’m over-tired, and over-emmotional…but I decided to do a little web-browsing while I was up anyway (I’m lame!) and was on one of the other Bride to be Sites that I also frequent (though none other quite matches my obsession, no…addiction to the Bee!) And came across a post that made me feel like I didn’t belong on that site. Like I wasn’t cool enough. And this from a site that at first drew me to it because it was supposed to be all about accepting everyone and not making anyone feel excluded. This particular post made me feel like a poser and a bit of a loser. I won’t get into specifics really, but I refrained myself from leaving a response, mostly b/c as previously stated I’m over-tired and too quick to feel judged I guess (who ISN’T when planning thier wedding?) But I almost felt like they were judging OTHER sites and other brides for being for lack of a better term, traditional. I’m so proud to be a member of this site who, quietly-without throwing it in your face and so 2’nd nature’dly (is that a word) celebrates all brides and ALL weddings and everyone’s way of doing their bridal thang!
Nothing against this other site but I had actually shyed away from it in recent months for maybe feeling like I didn’t “belong” there, and while this post throws in a “oh but you’re still ok if you have a more traditional thing going on…” for good measure, I dunnoooo…it just left me with a small feeling of icky sadness.
Anyway I Hope that made sense and what I really meant to say was I love you all, and this site. Thanks for existing 🙂
Wow, sappyness. OK I should reeeaallly get some more sleep.
