…but to be honest, a bit bored with WB since all of my favorite bees have left. The overwhelming focus on DIY crafts and other mundane wedding minutiae have killed my addiction to this site. Anyone have other good (non-wedding) sites they are addicted to? I need something new!!!

i actually like how the bees are teaching us the DIY crafts 🙂

Well….tell us what you want! I’m not so much into the DIY either since it’s almost wedding day for me, but give us a hint of what you enjoyed so much before and are missing now. I’d love to hear it!

I am not putting down DIY crafts, I am sure many people like it! Just not my thing 🙂
Good question gracielou. I enjoyed people sharing more about their lives and beliefs – and the discussions that people had – especially those from many different viewpoints, especially when they were conducted with respect. I also liked the sauciness with which people shared their stories – getting to know the interesting women on here.

Hmm … while I’m pretty much here for the DIY and ideas, I really did love posts like Mrs. Avacado’s LDS explanation. That was really enlightening and sparked some interesting discussions.

I too like the DIY ideas, although some of my favorite bees with amazing ideas aren’t around anymore (I miss LoveBug!), but I’m bored with the site because it feels like no one is blogging with any regularity. I check this site daily and it feels like each time I come here there’s only 2-3 new blog entries. I know that all the bees are super busy with wedding planning, but sometimes it seems as though we either don’t have enough bees or don’t have enough who actually post 3-4 times a week. I hope they keep bringing on new bees, because I’m about to start looking elsewhere for advice.

A lot of bees just got married and are off on their honeymoons, or just returning. I’m sure we’ll see several more new ones in the next few days.

Janna, I agree. I know that the bees go through cycles, and that there are a lot new/out to honeymoon/done posting bees so there is a bit of a slump, but I am pretty disappointed.
I have found that between
Offbeat Bride: wedding ideas with an alternative twist
I get enough wedding porn, but not nearly frequent enough, so I fill it in with these designers,
and some blogs that relate to my profession and political/world interests (slate.com that sort of thing) and I think this may be for the better…the wedding obsession has to end some time, right?

I have been enjoying Mrs. Gingerbread’s blog (http://www.twochicksnest.blogspot.com) and have decided to comb through some of the past postings on this website to see if some of the other bees don’t have a blog still going on somewhere. I have also been putting some energy into my facebook – creating photo albums of our newlywed adventures, and paying more attention to what my friends across the country who facebook have been doing with their time.
I feel you on the weddingbee… This was a great site for me when I was in the middle of planning, but honestly every group of women who plan a wedding have the same issues and problems and fears and triumphs. I found weddingbee about 6 months before my wedding, and it was really fun for about that long. Now the bees that I felt really involved with (because they were doing the same kinds of things that I was, and at the same time) are gone, and so are many of the members from that time period. The problems remain essentially the same, so it starts to seem fairly repetitive after a while… and since as a newly married person I have very different concerns and perspective than I did as an engaged, wedding-planning person, it all just seems less interesting. I still check it mostly out of habit, but I don’t think I will continue much longer.
Hey, if you figure out where Mrs. Lovebug is blogging, let me know!
