I get where you’re coming from.  I think it’s because the categories under Wedding Related are referring to the actual event itself… all except “Emotional.”  Maybe “emotional” was originally used to refer to “emotional” problems regarding wedding planning only though, and now people post all kindsa stuff in there.  Good question!

Well, waiting has nothing to do with a wedding…it has to do with an engagement =]=

I think that maybe it was done that way so that those of us who are engaged and planning a wedding can just click on “wedding-related” and not have to weed through waiting posts. It is technically wedding-related but not really very helpful to people who use the wedding boards for planning purposes.

Sure, waiting isn’t outside of the universe of weddings, but neither are LDRs, intimacy, and relationships. And those are all in Not Wedding Related. Clicking on wedding related just allows you to see posts that are about the event itself. Plenty of Bees post on here just to get feedback and discuss the event, not to discuss all of the emotional and relationship aspects.

Agree with danadelphia and monitajb.   When I don’t have lots of time, or just want to see only wedding-day related stuff, I like to just click on the wedding related.

Not Wedding Related isn’t the best name for the boards it contains. Though I don’t have any genius ideas for a different category name.

I think LIFE could be a good category name!

It’s not specifically wedding related I guess.

Ditto to others.

To me, “waiting” posts are typically bee’s stating something, vs. giving advice on planning a wedding.

I was one who was a “waiter” and also was planning my style and pretty much everything up until the ring landed!

For me, it’s a special area, and I think those waiting are all understanding the emotional needs of the other folks waiting and glad it has a special place now.  Since it’s not really 100 percent a part of the actual planning process, I see why it is where it is though..although I muddy the water as one who began the whole planning process before formally engaged.
