Hey waiting BEe’s
I have to ask this.. I am so tempted to buy wedding magzines even though I am waiting. Has anyone done this before or still buys the magazine even though he has not proposed? I feel awkward wanting to buy them but I just love weddings LOL

I haven’t bought one yet but SO and I look at them every time we’re in the Barnes and Noble. I’m holding off until we’re engaged to do it.
Totally tempted though I LOVE looking at them!

I bought one (a year ago) just to “see” because it was wrapped in plastic. It was a huge magazine and costs $24.99 and I tell you, what a waste of money! Loads of ads, and dresses that are weird looking, the models are super skinny and not average, the poses are in gymnastics style all crooked and an almost “falling over” look so I couldn’t tell what the dresses would look like on a “normal” woman! LOL
I’ll stick with weddingbee and “real” brides!

I buy one every now and again. Before I was planning a friend’s wedding, so I used that as an excuse. Then I was a Maid/Matron of Honor and helped plan that wedding. Now I don’t really have an excustha but that doesn’t stop me! I try not to spend more than $10 on one though. Actually, a couple of months ago my SO came over with food from the grocery store and HE bought me a wedding magazine while he was there! 🙂

I haven’t bought a wedding magazine, but SO bought me a wedding planning book a few weeks ago when we went out of town. That was a gift, but I’m trying to wait until we’re officially engaged until I buy wedding magazines. :3

I’m the loser with the subscription LOL I’ve had it for a year and a half! It was 2 years for $30! HOW COULD I SAY NO. I love them, when I had more time in the past I used to cut out things I liked and put them together in a binder. I’m terrible.

I’m not waiting anymore, but I didn’t buy any while I was. I have to say though, after I bought a few magazines, they all seemed the same! The internet is MUCH better for finding inspiration, how-to’s, planning guides, etc., you don’t need to spend the $15 each wedding magazine costs. The only one I really liked was Martha Stewart, but even then all the crafts you could probably find on their website!

I bought my first wedding magazine after Fiance bought the ring, but before the proposal.

- Wedding: September 2014 - Manhattan Church Rec Center
I was in the Airport in March going to visit family by myself and picked up the Engagement 101 mag. Everything to know BEFORE You get engaged. i brought it home and let it sit loudly on the table for a few weeks before my SO caught me looking and we actually looked though it together to see what kind of rings we both like.
I think that mag only comes out once a year or something because the website still looks the same.
But i am waiting for the ring to get the BRIDAL mag. I think it will be one of the first things i do…
