So bees, what do you like discussing the most at this website? And the least (not necessarily hate but just a topic you never open the thread or have a lack of interest replying to)? Okay, I’ll start:
least favorite- rings (yes, I know!)
most favorite- wedding cakes/cupcakes (yummy)
Your turn ladies!

socalgirl1689: I love polls! Especially which dress, veil, what ever polls. (Dresses being the top one)
I also like reading some crazy drama stories about inlaws and bridesmaids lol
I hate the ones about ring upgrades…ugh.

I love the rings forum. Upgrades and simulant threads, especially.
The waiting threads aren’t very fun, imo. I’m just so, “and you’re still dating him why exactly?” about some of the stuff they describe.

Not interested in rings at all. “Waiting” frustrates me – sometimes it’s like “just because you’re a woman, doesn’t mean you don’t get a say if it’s important to you!”
I’m mostly just here for the juicy gossip…

socalgirl1689: least favourite: rings, babies (no real interest in either currently!)
favourites: dresses, beauty, date twin… And any drama tbh

I will read just about every type of thread except for the “is this test positive” threads or the planning schedule threads on the month boards (but I understand that those threads are important to other people) because the women I hang around with IRL all have pretty similar views on things except when it comes to parents/CFBC. I enjoy reading about different perspectives/experiences here.
I’m most likely to post on etiquette, travel, wedding party, CFBC, politics, and guest/party planning issues threads.

I don’t really care so much about dresses, rings, planning, waiting, ttc or parenting. I might post a congrats or “wow, that’s pretty” on those threads, but that’s about it. I prefer home, pets, college/career and relationship threads.

I skip the pregnancy threads. Love to the mommys and the mommys-to-be but I cannot contribute. The squinter ones are a turn off. I don’t want to see your pee stick, sorry. I skip them. Also the simple threads of “show me X”, 99% of the time google would be a better tool. Seriously, I am surprised by how many bees never know of (or use) this tool.
Best- drama posts and current events
Edit- I am a late night bee and often people use this site as their personal garage sale or to promote their websites. Annoying

Least favorite: TTC/Babies, Waiting, Rings, Dresses
Favorite: No Kids, Family, Bridesmaids, Emotional (I like reading about relationships & drama!)
I also loathe threads about open bars, plus ones, or any other topics where people are very divided in their opinions and aren’t open to any other ideas. Just feels like we hear the same things over and over again.

Favorites: Rings, dresses, most polls. Wedding recaps. Sometimes drama. Makes me feel good about my own life 😉 lol.
“Am I Pregnant/Should I take a pregnancy test?” (for the love of GOD, the answer is always TAKE A TEST)
“Someone copied my dress/wedding date/theme/whatever.” or “Someone is stealing my thunder.”
Post # 11
I actually love the ring threads! Also, love polls and dress threads
Least favorite: pregnancy ones, but I understand other bees excitement about it. I’m just done having babies, so the itch is not there anymore.

ladycirtolthiel: Thor should be monitering this site for all of his thunder being stolen…

I can’t stand the “Rings” or “Waiting” posts. I typically ignore them. I can’t imagine being on a wedding planning website when I wasn’t engaged or actively planning a wedding.
As for things I like, I read a lot of the date twins or seasonal posts, since I like seeing what others who are planning fall weddings are doing. Questions about food or alcohol are great, since we are putting most of our effort into those categories. I also like the wedding shoes!

I really like threads about wedding decor, DIY, hair and beauty, anything to do with nesting (other than babies-except baby name threads!), anywhere I can post pictures of my cat, and in the interest of total transparency, any drama threads 😛
I’m bored to death by “show me your rings”, anything TTC (just not a part of my life at the moment), and the waiting boards.
