@LittleWigeon:  I actually have a photographer who keeps calling me because I asked for a price quote on his website! I have to explain every time that, no, we haven’t set a date and we’re just looking. I figure the poor guy is just trying to get business in kind of a saturated industry, I don’t have the heart to tell him to stop calling!

I love that when you say you did something naughty it was looking at venues haha. I do this too!! Everyone keeps telling me to figure out a venue now so I have been checking things out. No information has been sent to me yet thank goodness but I know one of these days it will backfire on me!

@LittleWigeon:  oh yes, I have no problem with emails or phone calls congratulating us on our engagement… but when I got a package from a venue and a postcard for a bridal expo at my house (where I live with my Parents) I was mortified since SO still hadn’t talked to them lol

@LittleWigeon:  Haha! YES, I’ve emailed a few people – photographers, venues, and makeup artists. I always get something like “Congrats! What date is your wedding so I can look into it for you?”

Um… *insert awkward silence here* Then I have to explain to them that I just want a price list, and maybe it’ll be sometime in 2015??? Haha!

@LittleWigeon:  lol yeah my Dad was curious about it, I just said something about how they must have gotten my name from Wedding Paper Divas cause I signed up for their free samples under the ruse of getting inspiration (I’m a Graphic Designer and I love designing wedding invites, I have a few designs up on Etsy) I think he bought it… idk lol

Hi all,

I just wanted to say that I keep loving the website more and more everyday. I thought I was crazy / obsessed / insecure for looking at venues, photographer portfolios, invitation cards… even though I’m not engaged and won’t be for at least a few months. I’m not alone!! 

Thanks ladies for making me feel normal 😉

This happened to me when I was looking for info on a Destination Wedding. The e-mail back was congratulating me on my engagement. I just took it as a moment for me and enjoyed it! haha.

Hey, I feel you! I am constantly embarassed because I get random post cards and stuff from local photographers, wedding planners, bridal boutiques, even Target about starting a wedding registry! I have never signed up for anything! I’m nineteen, and live with my parents, and my SO and I are NOT engaged yet. Yes, we’ve agreed that we will be sometime soon, but I never signed up for anything! I’ve only ever been on the Bee, so I don’t know where this is coming from.

All I can think is that someone who recently got married (I have lots of cousins recently married or to be married) put me on a list to get some kind of discount, knowing I’d probably be getting married soon-ish. It’s soooo embarassing whenever stuff comes in the mail. I don’t really get embarassed anymore, since basically everyone knows a wedding is coming eventually, but still!

And recently, I got a magazine with bridal stuff from Oriental Trading Company, and I just kept it since my SO works there and can get a good discount. Hey–why not look as long as it came to me, right? Haha.

Same thing happened to me!  I asked a venue about general availability, because I had a sense they filled up quickly and wanted to give Fiance a sense of the length of his runway if he wants a Fall/Winter wedding, and I got the “Congratulations!” email!  Made me smile but I did feel just a teeny bit guilty.

@LittleWigeon:  Don’t feel ba! It has taken all the strength God can give me to not look at stuff or get info
