I’m not too sure there is life outside weddingbee. Well, life on the internet anyway. I am obsessed with WB and am checking for updates on the blog and/or the boards many, many times a day. So many, in fact, I am too embarrased to give an actual number. So, besides the time consumed by this habit, you might be asking yourself…what is the big deal? Well…
I have been married for a little bit now and my husband is starting to raise his eyebrows at me looking at wedding planning blogs still. I know married Bees are common, and don’t get me wrong, I am not planning on leaving the hive…ever. I am just wondering if you could help me…
I would love your leads to any new/interesting/fun blogs that might be even close to as wonderful as weddingbee.I am not leaving the bee…I just want to supplement it. I love how there are always new updates, always something fun going on, a great supportive community, etc. So, do any of you know of any blogs that are like the bee but maybe on other topics? Basically…I’d love to know…
When you are not on the Bee, where are you? What are some of your favorite blogs?

Oh! I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only married member of the hive who checks weddingbee almost as obsessively as I did before I got married. Anytime my DH says anything, I just tell him that I’m graciously sacrificing my time to give back to the community that gave so much to me. 🙂 He more or less believes me. Although he knows how OCD I am and figured it would take me a while to get off the wedding websites. Thanks for the lead on indiebride. I’ll have to check that out.

Yay! I’m not alone. I feel so much better.
I wish there was a site for married ladies like weddingbee. Not to offend the knot., but thenest.com boards kinda suck – it’d be awesome to have something like weddingbee for new wives that don’t focus on "The Hills" or "I’m trying to get preg. …" or a lot of bickering. Seriously, I’m not downing the Nest – that’s just my observation.
BeeWives, anyone? haha.

Laides I feel your pain. I found that writing reviews about my vendors helped. I found this one (as a man that did 99% of the planning I thought it was rather refreshing as it doesn’t look like theknot – I could get away with going on at work. It’s called http://www.wedbuzz.com While I don’t think it’s the answer for all, it certainly helped me.

Let me help you with your dilemma! ANYONE who wants to help me obsess over the details of my wedding-please just send me a private note–I have no help from anyone!

Same here anyone that wants to give me advise please please feel free me email me. I am having an antique/ antebellum themed wedding. Up until yesterday I thought everything was going great, I had my colors picked out ( or so i thought). Until we went to go select Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and the light pink I had chosen in my mind didnt flatter my dress, so it changed to a wine/ garnet color. So now the light pink calla lillies a had chosen in my mind for center pieces as well as for bouqets no longer work. So I feel like I am at ground 0 all over again and really stressing. I dont have a very visual or creative mind so I am up for anything. I suck at flowers, I have a book with each flower but I just dont know what to pair with what and what centerpieces would look good. And now table linens, what to do about them and chair covers and they are so pricey lol….so if your bored you can be my Bee mentor 🙂 [email protected]

Just look at all of us married bees who are still here! You’re fine. One trick is to go to one of the personal blogs of the bees and bee readers and look over their blog lists. Usually they have links to some superfun design/decor/cooking/gardening blogs.

I joined a circle of Newlywed Bloggers. It’s a pretty fun group of gals, and has definitely filled my wedding "void". I even started my own: http://newlywedsnextdoor.blogspot.com/

I agree with all of the bees above. I’ve been married since August and find myself trolling the bee more than I "should". My new addiction has been facebook. I tried updating my own wedding blog by making it into a newly married blog, but that hasn’t worked very well either. I think it is just a slow process we all need to go through.

Haha, I like the BeeWives, that’s a cute idea! I’ve been married for a couple months now and still troll the site. My husband thinks I’m a weirdo, but sometimes it helps the unmarrieds get input from the marrieds, especially ones who were recently in their shoes.

Maybe I’m misinterpreting your original question, since I thought you were looking for non-wedding related sites, and most of the suggestions seem to be another website related to weddings. If you’re looking for a site to move beyond weddings, have you tried any of the sites in the Sugar family? There’s a huge variety of topics, and they update the sites dozens of times/day. It’s a whole community if you decide to get involved — lots of comments on posts, ways to interact with other members. I only read the sites that interest me, but they have the following…
popsugar.com — celebrity news
fabsugar.com — fashion
bellasugar.com — beauty
buzzsugar.com — TV/movies
citizensugar.com — news/politics
casasugar.com — home decor
dearsugar.com — love/sex
lilsugar.com — babies/kids
savvysugar.com — finance
fitsugar.com — health/exercise
yumsugar.com — food/parties
petsugar.com — pets
geeksguar.com — technology
gigglesugar.com — humor

I am completely addicted too, although I have five months until the wedding. I have a feeling I’ll still be reading every day after…
I do appreciate the advice from married bees and am glad that you ladies are here to give input! 🙂

I NEVER would have thought that I would have hung around a wedding planning site – because I wasn’t even that into planning my OWN wedding! lol. But here I am…
I have several blogs on my Google Reader. I keep coming back to Serious Eats (a food/cooking website). Design*Sponge is another good one. And kottke.org has some interesting posts (although I have yet to figure out exactly what it is). And now I’m hanging out on TheBump (due in June!!), which is where I get some of my community posting fix.
