@araneidae:  I am waiting, volunteering, working,having fun, etc. I consider myself a feminist and so is my SO.

I think it is too easy to say oh these sad women prematurely planning weddings because society made them. In reality it seems we are normal women who just like the solidarity of other who have been or are at a similar place in life. I always detect a note of bitterness when people use absolutist or universalist methods to desribe people or motivations.

I wouldn’t be offended by one person or a couple of people’s misperceptions on the situation of a Waiting Bee or anyone who plans their wedding before the proposal. If anything, these women are smarter to plan ahead of time. It probably helps with the, “OMG I’m losing my mind” moments that happen when the wedding is approaching.

There’s nothing wrong with having some idea of what you want your wedding to be like. I’m sure plenty of women have had daydreams of walking down the aisle. But then you get the ladies that show up to the fantasy party and they’ve already put down the deposit for the band. That’s when you’re like…

RED FLAG…
