Hi! Nice to meet you! I’m Stacey, I’m new to posting but have been following wedding bee for a year or so now! I have been very into weddings ever since I was 10 and my oldest brother got married (his wife had no hand in planning their wedding cause she said she didn’t care and it came out very…………different so I vowed that I would plan mine starting early so it wouldn’t be so awful!) I am not engaged but know my boyfriend has been looking at rings so I am as excited as ever to be a part of wedding bee! I too love seeing everyone’s plans come together and love seeing the diversity of bees on here!

  • Wedding: June 2010

Hi there.

I am also a Newbee (cant help it). Yes, this is addicive…I have only known about weddingbee for a week but have been logging in multiple times a day. 

 As for my wedding…we are getting hitched on June 5,2010 in Nashville. We have been engaged for  3 months now but I just started planning b/c I just complete grad school. Anyways, I will be doing lots of DYI projects so I am excited to have a beehive fun of unbias opinions to run stuff by! With that, it seems like there are some very creative ladies here who know a lot about wedding (I am clueless) so this is a gift!

I am a Newbee too. My other half proposed in Feb and we are getting married September 27, 2009. We are planning our wedding Stateside (PA) and my fiance is in London so its been a very interesting three thousand mile planning event to say the least. We meet when I was working in London a few years back and actually interviewed him (I am a photojournalist), later his company hired me and we fell madly in love. I moved back stateside all of a sudden over a year ago but our long distance relationship kept going strong thanks to skype and countless cheap flight hunting.  He proposed and we have been boucing back and forth planning a wedding in my hometown.

Hi, all.

So nice to have a place to say hello.  I actually just got engaged a week ago, though I’ve been secretly reading weddingbee (and planning things in my head) for quite some time 🙂  It was such a relief to not have to keep all these things a secret anymore–not to mention to finally, finally be engaged to the man I love.

My fiance and I are both PhD students, planning a wedding for Chicago in summer 2011 with a very, very small budget.  I’m looking forward to talking to other bees as we begin this cazy planning journey.

  • Wedding: May 2010

Hey everyone!  I’m a newbie too! Recently engaged on May 8.  Fiance was so romantic.  He took me to DC and proposed while we were paddleboating in the tidal basin (we were surrounded by these beautiful monument!).  Then that night he took me to this wonderful embassy gala.  Overall a perfect wonderful evening!


So far wedding bee has been super helpful helping navigate this whole wedding thing.  I had no idea it was sooo complicated.  We’re planning a wedding for next year on May 8th.  We’re hoping to rent out a house in the Florida Keys and I think we’re very close to finding one. 

 Anyway, thanks for welcoming all the newbies, including me!

I’m also a "newbee"–I found about about WeddingBee when I accidentally stumbled upon an old high school friend of mine who was a blogger here (Mrs. Jasmine) while I was googling mehndi parties a few weeks ago. I saw her profile photo (which she had also used on Facebook for a time), and I thought, "HEY! Who is pretending to be [Jasmine]? I should tell her!!" before I realized it was an alias and she was not an imposter. 🙂

I’ve been reading WB pretty much daily since, and it’s given me so many ideas for my own wedding (next March!).

Hi there!  I am also a "Newbee!"  We became engaged on vacation in Las Vegas in Feb.  I am planning a wedding for Summer 2010 in New York.  Me and my FH have been together 4 years as of next month and are so excited to plan our wedding!  I am excited to start the planning since I have no preconceived notions about what kind of wedding I would like!  It should be a fun, exciting journey!
