A recently married co-worker of mine told me about the Bee!  She said she found it right at the end of her planning and really wished she knew about the site sooner — thank goodness for her b/c I’ve used WB a TON in the last year+. 🙂

I was googling for reviews on local venues, this board kept popping up! Ended up getting addicted, LOL.

I fell in love with Maggie Sottero’s Kendra gown, and hardly anyone felt the same way I did – so I went googling for photos of other brides in the dress, and it brought me to FutureMrs.BDP’s thread about Kendra.  I since fell in love with another dress that everyone has agreed is the best choice for me! 🙂

I found The Bee while looking for advice on encore grooms.  The encore bride thread popped up and I’ve been here ever since.

I came here looking for Jeff Liu reviews since I was giong to order a dress from him. I ended up ordering it and posting it on here. I stayed here because after I ordered it I found some really really bad reviews and I was scared shitless and one member gave me a lot of reassurance (even though hers that she ordered from him did not turn out well, I felt so bad).  ANd I also stayed because I don’t really have ANY close girl friends and the ones I do have are quite obviously insane (as you can read from my posts) and I need help damnit! :P. I stay to get feedback on my plans because my guys (friends and FI) just aren’t that into all this stuff….

I was on another wedding board with Tiffinapit and Vagabondgurl and they suggested so many times to look here for things, so finally I did.  I loved the site immediatly and started posting.  The clincher for me was the wonderful welcome PM that I got from cebre80.  She had this wonderful way of sending you warm welcoming hugs thru her words and I felt right at home right away.

With my wedding so close, I still don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon.  There are so many weddings that I have been following that there is no way I could leave until those are done and with newbees starting everyday I am always finding more to follow.  It is a viciously fun and wonderful cycle, guess you ladies are stuck with me for awhile.

My boyfriend had given me the ok for looking at engagement ring styles so I Google’d looking for an emerald cut ring, and found Wedding bee. Became addicted to the ring threads, and there ya have it Smile

My friend who got married in 2009 suggested it to me shortly after my Darling Husband and I got engaged. I haven’t really been on since the wedding (5/7/11), mainly because I am having some post-wedding-blues. I think I miss being a bride/fiance!

I was really into healthy living blogs, mainly Healthy Tipping Point by Caitlin. I think she linked to Mrs. Avocado’s Post-Bee blog (That Wife) and then I wound up finding a couple other “mom blogs” that used to be Bees. I would poke around the Bee and read Avocado and Dumpling’s re-caps, and then started getting involved in the Waiting Boards before I got engaged.

One more vote from someone who didn’t find it via Google!

I googled “wedding blog.” Ta-da!! I didn’t realize there were message boards at first. I just followed the blog for awhile but I was completely hooked 🙂

I was having a hard day waiting (I started out as a waiting bee) and I googled “Waiting for the ring.” I loved the site so I ended up joining and never left.

I found the Bee after looking for real women in wedding dresses and it quickly became my wedding go to site. Now, pretty much everytime I need some advice or have some sort of life question, whether it be wedding related or not, I come here first. I’m hoping to stick around after my wedding and that they had to the Not Wedding Related categories.

I found the hive after googling La Spoza Fanal, I tried it on in the UK and was looking for a cheaper version of it in Canada. It just happened that someone had been selling the dress on the classifieds on Weddingbee.

I’m no longer interested in the dress, but I’m certainly hooked on this site!

I found it via Stumbleupon set on “weddings”. I found the boards, read every single ’emotional’ post all the way back to the beginning of the board (so like, 3 years :P) and then decided to make an account.
