I’m pretty new to this board, and I may ramble so bare with me please.
So…. I live in Maryland, getting married in July, but all my BM’s live in Ohio (where I am from originally*) and I deseperately need a buddy to talk wedding stuff with. My dear FH is sick of hearing about dresses, shoes, fabrics, colors, swatches, flowers, centerpieces, etc; and it’s hard to talk to my sister (MOH) about things without her being here all the time to show her and go shopping. My Mom is here in Maryland, but I can tell I am wearing her thin as well. If you are in a similar situation or just like to talk weddding stuff please contact me!
Hope I don’t sound tooo desperate!
Looking forward to talking to well anyone really.

Hi kurtsbride, that is exactly what Weddingbee is!!!!
Although we aren’t all July brides, (I am by the way), we are all one big Wedding Buddy. For example, you need help on picking a save-the-date (STD) and you have two to decide from. Then you go over to the Wedding link, click on the invitation forum, and ask a question. Need advice on centerpieces, there is a centerpiece forum too.
Don’t feel that you can only ask one or two people for help…. it’s what we all do! We come to the board to receive and give advice, help, opinions.
Oh, if you ever get emotional and need to vent, we have that forum too.
Welcome to hive. … and be ready to become addicted!

I wish you are in Indianapolis! Everyone I know (practically) is in NJ so I would love to chat with another bride 🙁

Not desperate at all! I completely understand. My bridesmaids are in other states too, and I’m sure my fiance is starting to wish they were here!

Welcome kurtsbride! I too am a July bride who is always desperate to talk wedding planning details, but sadly nobody really wants to listen to me jabber on about weddings 🙁 That’s ok. I found the bee! …I also started blogging about my wedding planning. That gave me an outlet where I can write all about my wedding, and show lots of pretty inspiration pictures. It doesn’t really matter to me that my mom might be the only follower of my blog 😉
It’s great to have you here!

I hear you… I live in Atlanta and my whole family and most of my friends are back in Philly (or somewhere in the Northeast). I’m sure my Fiance and my sole Georgian bridesmaid are sooo sick of hearing about it all, and I’m trying SOOO hard not to be annoying about it. Weddingbee has helped me a ton though. Even just to read and get ideas about things, not necessarily vent or rant… most of the vents/rants I have are already posted by someone else! 🙂

Haha, I think we all like to talk wedding stuff, so you’ll have no shortage of opinions, support.
We’re almost date twins, but I went with the Friday evening because I picked a VERY popular venue that was booked every Saturday by the time I got engaged, so I’m on the 9th.

Hi! I’m also from Maryland–that’s pretty neat! I wouldn’t mind talking–although I already feel a bit overwhelmed w/all the wedding planning to do! But it’d be nice to talk to someone else who is local and getting married in July!!

Welcome…new myself :o) I am not a July bride..October here…
I feel your pain! I don’t bring up wedding stuff to my girls because I don’t want to be one of those bridezillas that all I can talk about is wedding-related stuff! I only give out info when asked and then I keep it limited….and I don’t ask for help and go wedding shopping alone usually. Pretty much why I joined this site….

Hi, my date is July 24th, in Wisconsin, but if you ever want to chat, send me a message! I don’t have any bridesmaids or a lot of support planning my wedding so I love talking to other bees. So far, everyone has been really nice.

Hi there! I’m pretty new here too!
Yeah, my Fiance is sick of hearing me talk about wedding stuff too…already. hehe. I think because he’s trying to focus on getting us settled into the house we just bought and isn’t quite ready for all the wedding detail talk right now. haha.
I used to live in MD. 🙂
Hope you find all the help you need here, I know it’s helped me a lot so far and I’m just starting my planning. 🙂

Hi there! I’m in the same boat you are! I live in NC, but my entire bridal party and my Mom live in TN. My poor Fiance gets so sick and tired of listening to me ramble on and on about colors and floral arrangements and hair trials and what not. His mom lives here and even she seems to be sick of talking wedding all the time.
Feel free to chat with me about any and all things wedding related. I know what you’re going through!
