We have a lot of newbees around here (hooray for holiday proposals!) so I thought this would be a good time for us to get acquainted! So, welcome! Introduce yourself, tell us something fun about you! I’ll start:
I’m Bakerella (I’m the Community Coordinator around here). I’ve been a member of the site for about 2 years now. I met my Darling Husband while waiting for an elevator six years ago (six?! Holy cow time flies!!). Darling Husband never got a chance to propose, my dad actually did it. We got married September 2010 in a rustic elegance outdoor wedding. I have a 5 year old stepson and 2 cats, Peter and Glory (whose furry faces you’ll see plastered all over the boards). I absolutely love the community here, the close knit group of women and the support we all offer each other. I think it’s a such a unique little corner of the interwebs and I’m so happy and lucky to be a part of it!

I suppose I’m a newbee 🙂 My names Amanda and I have been lurking for a few months but just started posting in early December. I got engaged on Dec. 22nd to my best friend. I am beyond excited to get married and I am so thankful to have found the bee. It truly is a wonderful place to share ideas and meet others. I have not started my planning yet but I will definitely be using the bee every step of the way!

I’m a newbee! My name is Dana, i’m 22 years old and got engaged on December 22 after dating for 4 years. We are shooting for possibly November 2013 for our wedding, so I have plenty of planning time! I’m really excited to get more wedding inspiration from the bee and getting to know the brides and brides-to-be!

I’m newish, I’ve been around for maybe two months, when I thought the engagement was close and i was right 🙂 We got engaged on Dec 12th, 2011 and are planning for a wedding late 2013 or mid 2014 due to who we want to be in it being in the country and our lives are pretty up in the air for the next year or so.

@bakerella: So basically I think that your story of how you met your Darling Husband is the best ever! How cute 🙂
@theredhead: That’s the day after my b-day 🙂

My name is Prue and I recently was proposed to by my sweetheart. He’s this adorable man who makes me laugh and smile form the inside out and I love him beyond anything in this world.
We’re getting married in August of this year, and we can’t wait to start out lives together.
That’s it from me, sorry, I’m not much of a talker.
Have a great day, everyoe 🙂

Just ended a lovely evening. Two couples came over to welcome us into our new home and celebrate our engagement. A welcome moment to celebrate, we have had to deal with too much reality of moving and have not had much time to revel since we moved up last week.
With the move I have barely had a moment to revel in the joy of our engagement… and planning the wedding! I/we don’t want anything big/fancy/expensive, but I still am very excited to have a day to celebrate our journey that started over five years ago.

I’m new here, although I did lurk for a while before actually joining. Fiance and I have been together since 13 August 2007, and he proposed 19 December 2011. We’re high school sweethearts. 🙂 We’re both in the military. I’m overseas right now, he’s stateside. We’re doing a courthouse wedding on my midtour leave and then having a ceremony and reception for family and friends when my tour is over and I’m back stateside in a year. My mom, his mom, and my 3 sisters are doing the planning for us because neither of us are close enough to do it ourselves. We’re from a small town, and that’s where we’ll be having the ceremony and reception.
As for me, I like to read. A lot. As often as possible. I don’t like driving. At all. I’m very shy. I don’t drink or smoke. I’m underage as far as drinking goes, but it’s never really appealed to me anyway. Fiance is big on drinking though, haha. I love cats! I wish I could have one. I’m only 20, Fiance is 21. We’re young, I suppose, but so excited to not live so far away from each other (14 hour time difference right now!) and be able to see each other daily and just enjoy each others company. 🙂

Welcome to the Hive Ladies!

Thanks for having me here!
I’ve recently become engaged to my best friend of 6 years! Yay! We are hoping for a wedding at the end of December 2012, but it may be mid 2013 depending on finances. (Plus I secretly would love a Winter wedding!)
I decided I would join the Weddingbee board because nearly every time I search for wedding info online, I ended up here! And from what I can see I love it!
Oh, and I love the way everyone refers to the others as bees, it’s so cute and makes me feel like this is a warm community that I’d like to be part of.
Anyways, enough from me. Take care everyone!

Hello. I’m Nicole and I have been lurking for a few days now. My fiance and I met and started dating 11 years ago as military brats in Germany. He was my first love, real boyfriend, everything. Moved to the States (first time for me) when his id card expired. Broke up after 3 years with a 1 year old daughter (now 9). We were 22 and just stressed. Both married other people. I had my second dd (now 6). Divorced the other people within months (divorces were in 2008 and 2009, had nothing to do with the other, our insignificant others both ended up being cheaters). Found our way back to each other January 2010. Have been happily together ever since. I did a quick Justice of the Peace marriage with my first husband. Was going to do the same for my second marriage, but lurking here has awakened some kind of obsessive need to have my own wedding dress. We will probably still elope, but maybe let some friends and daughters tag along. And his parents. Almost all of my extended family is in Germany and I couldn’t do a big wedding without them and with our schedules… a wedding in Germany is not possible. I’m in school fulltime for social work.
I get along with almost everyone and talk/type a lot. 😀
I will need help finding a dress.

Hi everyone! I’m a newbee too 🙂
My darling proposed to me on the 18th of December on a pier on the River Thames in London under a starry sky.
We are both from New Zealand but are living and working in London for a couple of years, and using London as a base to travel all over Europe (pretty cool engagement if you ask me!). We are getting married in December 2013 when we return home to New Zealand, but we will plan the entire wedding sight unseen from the UK – it will definitely be a challenge, although we have a fair bit of time up our sleeves, so fingers crossed!
I’m looking forward to getting to know some other bees and learning some tips and tricks from everyone… let the planning begin 🙂

Another newbee here 🙂
I met my lovely man in my local pub about three years ago and last April he popped the question in Edinburgh botantical gardens 🙂 We have finally set the date, woooo. Roll on 8th June 2013! It seems so far away but I know it’ll come round quick.
We’ve already started planning (so excited) but i look forward to learning tricks and sharing tips with the hive 🙂
