@LollyQ: Since the titles of the posts are usually quite clear as long as you read them, no, I have not been surprised. I think it’s nice that people come to talk about things that are related to weddings, but that we can also have conversations about other things as well.

Yep. Seems simple enough to figure out what a thread is about from the title.

The boards used to be all wedding stuff but as time went on, more boards for the rest of people’s lives appeared like The Lounge, Cooking and Intimacy. Even if you are planning a wedding, you can come here and talk about the other things in your life. This community also has a thriving group of marrieds left, myself included!

If you only want to see wedding related posts, make sure you selected the “Wedding Related” option at the top of the screen (under the wedding bee logo) 🙂

thank you 🙂 i had no idea with one of the titles and was a little shocked when i opened it to find out what it was (and thought it was a wedding term I hadn’t heard of as I am not really overly girly)

Most of the time you can figure out what a thread is from the title, but some of the titles are vague. Look at what board it’s posted in for more clarification, before you click on a “So Disappointed [Rant]” thread. If it’s in Dress, maybe click on it, but if it’s in Intimacy, … maybe not.

No, because I lurked for awhile and explored before I started posting. Most forums have their own culture, and I find it’s best to figure it out as best I can prior to joining in. That way you can see “Oh there’s an intimacy board, oh and here’s a board for pregnancy, etc.”
