@manders83: First off, welcome to the hive.  πŸ™‚

The thing I like about this community is that you can look up pretty much anything wedding-related and someone will have a post on how to do it, what it was like, or discussions about whether to do it or not.  You can use it for wedding planning, learning from others, or even just to get ideas.  Stick around; you might find you like it more than you think you do!

haha vagina!

I am kind of new myself, but I am having lots of fun sharing and getting ideas..

Sorry to hear you are not adjusting well to the move..moving right in the middle of wedding planning would be extremely difficult..

If it makes you feel any better I went dress shopping solo because my mom and grandmother can be almost hostile with their opinions…so now the dress is bought and everyone just has to at least pretend to like it Smile

Welcome to Weddingbee!  It takes a little while to get used to it here but it’s worth it.  No one is ignoring you on purpose, some threads and times of day don’t get as much traffic so you won’t get as many responses.  Just try to hang out for a bit, it’s a lot of fun here!

@manders83: Hi there, welcome to WB!

This is a diverse community with lots of help, advice, ideas and inspiration.

Everyone was a newbee at one time. The key to getting responses, or people being more likely to respond to you in comments or discussions is having a different and memorable username and avatar. Do a quick search for names similar to yours, if you find any perhaps you could change your username to something that sticks out more. People recognize you by your name and picture only, so make sure they stand out.

The best way to get responses to a thread is to title it in a creative and interesting way so that people will be intrigued to open and read it. Keep your posts as short and sweet as possibe, as the very long ones will more than likely not get read in their entirety. Also, if you want lots of different takes on the matter and need lots of comments, time your posts during prime times of WB traffic. Don’t post really late or really early in the morning. The last thing posted will go straight to the top of the boards and gets bumped down by every thread that is commented on while yours goes unanswered. Pretty soon, with all the new threads, your can be bumped back into pages 4, 5, or 6 where it is uncommon that someone will page through to find it and respond.

If you have any other questions, feel free to message me. I’m always around and know some things (but definitely not all things). Don’t be afraid to jump into conversations with people with lots of posts, newbees tend to get forgotten in the jumble unfortunately. Don’t let yourself be forgotten πŸ™‚

@manders83: Sweety I know Exactly how you feel!! I have absolutely no friends, sisters, or any fam helping with wedding planning, and am doing it completely solo.  It gets overwhelming but just know the main point is that you are marrying your best friend and have fun with the planning!

Actually I posted about this earlier, haha.  The girls here are really sweet and helpful. Just know you can ask us any questions. πŸ™‚

@manders83: unfortunately you cannot change your name. You would have to create a new account with a new name. My recommendation is that if you have any feeling that you may want to change your name, do so now while your post count is low. You could easily attain 45 more responses with a new name that you liked better if that is what you want to do. Good luck hun, and have fun!

Welcome to the Hive!

We all have those post that either get no or few responses. I am a late at night poster so I am usually on when you prob are. Feel free to jump onto any of the night chats, that is how I got to know a lot of the Bees and there are several in your area on at that time. Or, if you are just bored and feel like a chat, feel free to PM me anytime and I will jump on ( I have a lot of free time at night).
