I really like hearing about the joys and pitfalls and especially anything that would’ve been done differently. I know there will probably only be one or two things that “might have been changed” but those are oh-so-helpful to read about. But really I love the wedding p0rn aspect too- lots and lots of wonderous pictures!!!

Is lots of pictures an obvious one.  I also like to see the details of the wedding. The DIY stuff that was blogged about coming to life at the wedding.

DETAILS!! Those are always my favorite, where it’s just pics of flowers, programs, cakes, centerpieces, etc.

As for Bee recaps, I think Candy Corn and Cheese are my favorites. They were so full of their personalities (both in writing, pics, and details)!

I agree with you-I enjoy hearing about their feelings of the day. And my too favorite recaps so far have been Sea Breeze, Cherry Pie, and Candy Corn. There’s a few more but that’s all I can think of off the top of my head.

pictures, and the small details that you blogged about and how they turned out.

I like dress pix the best. While I love wedding recaps, I like posts about the search for the dress more than anything. I can realte to that the most as it was the biggest deal for me ๐Ÿ™‚

I like posts that are longer, I hate to say.  Some of the best ones are like the last post of Haute C, where it went on forever but gave so much info and so many pictures.  I’m not really a fan of the “here are 10 lines about these 2 pictures, stay tuned!”.

 

I’d rather have longer posts v. a ton of super short ones.

I’m loving the Star recaps. And I’m really looking forward to seeing Cola’s recaps and Lamb’s. Then again, I’m a pretty new (in WB terms) WB stalker follower ๐Ÿ™‚

Duly noted about longer posts!  I’m probably going to do my ceremony recap as one long-ish post, but I’ll have to see.  You never know how long a post is going to be until you actually sit down and start writing it!!  I’m so excited to share the rest of my wedding with you guys–especially the reception posts, but I gotta take it one step at a time.  ๐Ÿ™‚

The first recaps I met were Mrs Tiramisu and I loved them. I like honesty about vendors and details.

I will also be honest with you and tell you that I don’t really care for a lot of candid shots that you just scroll through. It’s not very fun to see pictures of people you don’t know with no explanation or real purpose.

Lots of pictures but in a logical order, and the feelings of the day (but don’t make it too negative).  Dedicate one post to the things that you thought went wrong on the wedding day and whether or not you laughed them off or how you dealt with them.  I just get depressed when I read some recaps that have a negative aspect in every post.  

I also like honesty about vendors.  And it’s nice if you post the names of them too so other brides can contact the vendors or avoid the same mistakes!
