I was engaged by the time I found it, but I was actually looking for something to do with my company’s picnic (don’t remember the search exactly) but it brought me to a link for the Vendor Reviews section.

@anothersmith:  I found this site when I started googling wedding stuff. Not necessarily gowns but wedding ideas and venues before getting engaged. I am definitely hooked… and hope I get more ideas for my spring wedding through the bees and the bloggers!

I was a BM in a friend’s wedding, googling things, and stumbled upon it a few times. But then I started googling moissanite and this site came up a lot. I recognized it from previous searches. I stuck around and finally joined as a waiting bee.

As a note: I may be waiting, but that sure doesn’t mean marriage isn’t discussed between SO and me. But I know some girls are on here without have even brought it up to their SO.

I had family issues when I got engaged and needed advice on etiquette, other than that I’m just a “reader” not too much of a “poster.”

I found this site while I was waiting… I think I must have found a tutorial or something.  The blogs were the first things I read, not the boards!  I don’t remember exactly >_<*

I googled wedding forums and found this one.  I was engaged and planning and thought it would be fun to talk to others planning 🙂

To answer your question about people stumbling upon this site when they are not near marriage.. I know a few ladies I’ve chatted with on this site have found it while being a bridesmaid and looking for tips on throwing a bridal shower, etc.

Me? Personally? I had been dating DH for 4 years and was googling crazy-ass things like “WHY WONT HE PROPOSE TO ME?”

Found the waiting boards and never left. 😉

The first time I found it was when my husband and I had been together for about three years, but before we got engaged. I was looking into secular ceremonies. I read the post that came up and didn’t really realize what Weddingbee was (multiple bloggers, boards, galleries, etc.) I thought it was just some girl’s blog. 

As we got closer to engagement (we custom made a ring together, so I knew it was coming) weddingbee kept popping up in wedding-realted google searches so I explored more and lurked a lot. I think I joined about 4 months before we got engaged.

We were already engaged when a friend who was also engaged recommended that I checkout the Bee. And I’ve stayed after the wedding because the nesting forums are fun and I can hopefully offer some good advice to other Bees. That and I am helping a friend plan her wedding now. 🙂

I was googling rings because I was looking at what style I wanted so I could pick out the ring before we got engaged and found the site.

  • Wedding: March 2014

I attended a wedding this summer of a friend I had fallen out of touch with when I was abroad. Her invites went out a little late and despite receiving a save the date, I had a period of wondering if she wasn’t inviting me at all. This was problematic since I had to travel out of town. So I was googling all sorts of stuff in regards to save the dates and invite timing. I found this board and saw that there was a LDR section so I was intrigued since I am in a LDR. Since then I’ve been addicted generally because it’s such a fast-moving and expanse board so there’s always lively non-wedding conversations going on!

I found it after I had gotten engaged and was looking for blogs to add to my RSS feed…didn’t realize there were boards for about a month. 🙂
