I just love weddings & getting married gives me an excuse to legitimately indulge.

I’m waiting to officially get engaged and knowing there are hundreds of other girls in my exact situation is so cool and comforting! Also I am getting wedding ideas for when I can start officially planning my big day 🙂

I first joined because I love all things wedding and was waiting for a ring! I’m here now for wedding ideas, of course. And I’ll stick around after my wedding because I love this site and all of you wonderful people 🙂

I joined for the supportive community during my waiting period, it was awesome to be able to express my fears/frustrations/excitement during that time with people who understood… I felt I couldn’t the totally open about all of that out loud, and in the rare moments that I did, people thought I was totally crazy :p.

First, to get wedding ideas, but I was particularly delighted that some pertinent aspects I never bothered about were raised and discussed. So…insight too and definitely a push financially.

So the obvious, wedding ideas… and it’s my guilty pleasure!

+1 re. the waiting board – it’s actually a really great mini-community and some waiting ladies I’ve communicated are some of the loveliest on this site.

Now that I’m planning our wedding, I’m here for ideas, procrastination from work and college, advice and because it’s a productive outlet to talk about wedding-related things so I’m not driving everyone around me crazy.

I was all about my wedding and found this site like a couple of months before I got married. I just kind of stuck around.

Really, I joined and stayed because of the community. I like how it’s a nice, accepting environment (for the most part). I liked finding a place where I could openly admit I’m not engaged yet and still talk about wedding things without people thinking I’m crazy or desperate, even though I’m not really on the waiting boards often.

@asianbarbie:  Came here for ring ideas. Still look at rings, and everything else. Even boards like TTC and Christianity, even though I don’t really want kids and I’m not Christian, haha. I should be engaged by December, so I’ll be using the other boards more extensively after that. 🙂

I’m on here because I don’t have many female friends who I can go to easily with questions (most work fulltime in different cities around CA). I am in a serious, long-term relationship but am not yet ready to take the next step. I’d like to be done with my Bachelor’s before getting engaged, so I still have about 2 years.

@asianbarbie: It was to get advice and tips when I first joined and I liked helping others. Now it’s the latter and I like the community – it’s also kinda like an escape, how I relax.

I stumbled on it when I was looking for gift ideas for my SO. I joined later to get more wedding info regarding my cousins wedding. And I stayed for the waiting boards and the overall community. I tend to lurk on a lot of the nesting and TTC boards just for fun too.
