I’m Bridepower, I have written several posts now as I joined about three weeks ago.
I would love to get together with other brides! One of the reasons is:
At this time I am the only person I know getting married. Amongst my friends are women who are divorced, cheated on, miserable and bitter who despise men and who I’m pretty sure are unhappy and jealous that I’m getting married (some of them are bridesmaids). I only have one friend (who is happily married and is my MOH) with whom I can jump up and down with excitement and joy about getting married!
My FH”s large family are genuinely excited for us (they are also happily married) but I don’t know them well and they live in another state from me anyway. I have a tiny family, only know my immediate relatives. My sister who does not speak to me has an unhappy marriage with infidelity and is also jealous I”m getting married from what I understand.
I wish I had more people in my life with whom I can share my joy. Then I got the idea of hanging out with other happy brides I could find through this website or others, either as a support group or just even a one-time get together!
After the holidays would work for me, preferrably after mid-January.
I’m in Staten Island, NY. But I can travel to other areas of NYC.
Anyone interested? 🙂

Hi Bridepower, I would be interested in a get-together if others are on board. I wasn’t able to make the NY meetup in September since I was attending my sisters bachelorette party.

Great! I didn’t even know there was a NY meetup. Well, I just joined.
Where are you in NY? What town would work for you?

I’d be interested! I live in Brooklyn, and don’t drive, so I’d definitely prefer something in Manhattan or Brooklyn, but Queens or the Bronx could work too. 🙂

I’m game! My whole family and entire bridal party live in other states, so I’ve been planning solo and would love to get together with some other Bees!!
I’m in midtown=)

I’m up for this! I’m also mostly planning alone – family and bridal party live all over the place, plus none of my friends are engaged or even interested in marriage yet 🙂
I live in Manhattan, so a meet-up here would be great.

I would definitely be interested as well! I”m also the only one of my friends to be getting married, and I would love to have other bride-to-bees to talk to 🙂 I live in Manhattan, so that would work best for me!

Hi everyone!!! So sorry I haven’t been able to respond, being on vacation finally has had me just resting and sitting on the couch. This is the first time I’m checking the responses to the idea of meeting up.
Ok, Manhattan works for me too!
I’m off until the third week of January so I’m pretty flexible.
What days of the week work for everyone? A weekday? A weekend?
