Let’s give props to the helpful hive members out there!
I’d love to see who has inspired or assisted you in any way with your wedding plans.
If it’s an inspiration, please let us know who and what it was.
If it’s someone who is helpful, what did they do? Did they recommend a vendor, find you your dream shoes, design you a monogram?

Mrs. Cupcakes invites have *ahem* inspired mine own. MUCH.
Rosychicklet has always had helpful advice for my constant dilemmas!
Mrs. Eggplant’s programs…I adore them!
And definitely many other hive members who’ve encouraged me when I wanted to throw in the Vera Wang towel.

Although it hasn’t been in response to any of my dilemmas or questions, I always find Suzanno to be super helpful and right on the money. If I’m just skimming through the comments I’ll definitely pause to actually read her comment.

Miss Perfume totally inspired my invites! Mrs. Cherry Pie has given me overall inspiration for my event! Miss Cheese has inspired me to keep going when things get tough! And Mrs. Bee has inspired me with her devotion to weddings!!!

There are definitely some people I find very helpful with general questions/problems: Suzanno, Rosychicklet, fizicsgirl, craftypants, and MightySapphire to name a few.
Also, I love doctorgirl, and I don’t care who knows it! Really, though, I love her location, and her dress, and her style. She’s kinda my WB crush!

Mrs. Tiramisu totally inspired me to have a tented wedding-
Mrs. Penguins’s gocco’d coasters let me know I NEEDED a gocco (fortunately this happened before they went scarce!)
And all the bees who post about serious/relationship issues continually inspire me with their bravery.

Rosychicklet has been nice enough to rent me her cake stand, Luckymag recommended my makeup artist, a wonderful girl from Florida sold me her clover DB sash,( I am sorry I can’t remember your name-Meg?) and countless have helped me with ideas and inspiration! Mrs. Penguin cracks me up regularly and all of the Bees keep me clicking "refresh"! Emilie from Pink Orchid designs was also kind enough to share with me all of her ideas and her source for Out of Town bags.
Oh, and I have to give a shout-out to all of the Boston Bees for the February meet-up! We’re due for another!

Anyone and everyone who responds to all my questions! I’m a constant Hive Stalker thanks to sitting at a desk all day. I wish I’d found this site a year ago!

I was inspired by Mrs. Penguin’s flower tissue paper favor boxes. My sister-in-law fluffed flowers for days!
I decided to etch votives after reading Mrs. Cherry Blossom’s post.
At the last minute, I decided I had to have Mrs. Eggplant’s placecards. They took hours and hours (and hours) but I loved them!
I found my make up artist Susie Chhuor thanks to Miss Glitter’s post about her trial session.
I also learned about embossing and how to fold a ribbon flat enough for an envelope (I can see the examples from the post but I can’t remember who – sorry!)

We’re doing our centerpieces in silver coffeepots b/c of Mrs. Lovebug. And I’m recently getting into Mrs. Cupcake’s posts and reading backwards. Her OCD-ness really appeals to me. And her invitations weren’t too shabby a.k.a. the best I’ve ever seen.
And if there’s another Boston meet-up, I’m in!

- Wedding: June 2009 - Red Fish Grill
@Mrs. Spring: Aw, shucks!
There are definitely a number of ladies in the Hive whose icons my eyes immediately scan for. (Pleeease don’t change your icons anytime soon or I’m in BIG trouble! lol)
Rosychicklet (kind of like a big sister that I learn from through her posts about her own wedding and experiences)
bellenga (she inspires me in the way she supports/counsels those in distress)
DoctorGirl (she’s the Voice of Reason for me in the Hive)
Suzanno (a source for thoughtful, supportive, words of encouragement)
LatteLove (quick with the links; if it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t know about the Gallery; love reading her blog!)
Mrs.Leopard (real-wedding glamour; LOVE all the games in the Lounge!)
I’ve also learned so much from the experiences/tutorials/tips that all of the Bees share through their blogging. Thanks for the time that you dedicate to WB! :o)
