It is different from other sites because:

  • you can follow "bees" through their wedding planning and their life as newlyweds
  • you are able to see how each "bee" has enlisted their own personality and infused it into their wedding
  • fun, fresh ideas from our fellow bees
  • a lively board where you can get feedback on ideas or questions
  • a separate site (weddingbee pro) where you can see all the planning eye candy you want as well as gain insight from professionals in the wedding industry

Imho, Weddingbee is unique and fun.  Nothing else like it on the web!

I agree with bellenga! I found it through a random search! I am a few things

1. NOT GIRLY!

2. Never Dreamed of my wedding.

3. Crafty ( well I try)

4. We are a poor fireifghter and paramedic

With all this wedding bees allowed me to feel confident that I was just like others and had no clue about what to do. But some bees were very willing to help and guide and through all the post and boards I have found my way and I was off!

Weddingbee is so full of real life drama, projects. It isnt like others that you need to have a million dollar wedding just to even feel like you fit in the same blog space with them.

You have a sisterhood and you make me feel like I have a home.

I know if with any DIY projects I may attempt that I can run here and someone will help me! I have over a year to enjoy it. But I know I will be sad when I leave!

 

Thanks For everyone’s hard work in making this site what it is!

I love that the forums are so civil and lack much of the "snark" that many other boards seem overrun by.

I love the simple yet attractive page design, that it loads quickly and isn’t bogged down by tons of flash or google ads.

 I love the variety of bloggers- girls of different shapes and sizes and backgrounds and girls with different priorities in their weddings. 

I love how dedicated you and Mr Bee seem to be to the site and your total immersion in the community. That is rare on so many sites, especially those with major corporate sponsorship.

I love the forward-thinking and constant site development.

Um, duh, I also love talking about weddings!

  • Wedding: September 2009 - Rancho Bernardo Inn

There are lots of things I love about Weddingbee, but here are some of my favorites…

  • The posts all come from REAL brides thus making the different details seem doable and achievable.  Sometimes I get overwhelmed on other sites that my budget does not allow for some of the featured weddings.
  • I love all the discussions and comments on posts.  You can always ask questions and get feedback from not just the particular bee poster but all the other readers.
  • There is lots of variety in what is posted from different locations, cultures, color palettes, styles etc.
  • The site is easy to read and navigate. 
  • It has a community feel from the discussion boards and members.
  • Lots of DIY ideas, inspiration pictures and useful ideas and tips

I love the confidence Weddingbee has given me with crafting and DIYs, and the new, fresh ideas I’ve gotten — inspired by photog, craft and style blogs. 

I never would have had the ideas, or completed the projects, that I have to date without being nudged along by the creative juices flowing so freely on this site!

I love that there are Bees at every point of their planning. I have gotten so many good ideas and tips from the site. I honestly don’t know how I would have planned my wedding without WeddingBee!!!! I am not the most organized bride, so seeing people around the point I am keeps me in check of what I should be doing.

1) It is VERY obvious that you really care about your readers and you don’t get that from other places.

2) It’s nice to see real brides with real budgets, so you can get ideas how to make those "Platinum Weddings" into realistic weddings.

3) The boards…nuff said!

1) The people are very kind. If people were snarky I would not spend time answering questions.

2) I love discussing those sticky personal situations that weddings seem to bring out in everyone.

3) Seeing the beautiful creations of brides is really fun, even if I don’t do much DIY myself.

I love how quickly there are new posts. A lot of wedding blogs update at most once a day, but here I can usually get my wedding fix a couple times a day hehe 🙂 I also like that the boards are really active and filled with great answers/opinions.

I like it because of all the reasons above

I also enjoy weddingbee in that it doesn’t LOOK like it is trying to sell you on other typical bridal supplies. In terms of ad placements. I get very overwhelmed when I see ads popping up everywhere (those ridiculous scrolling ads that float in front of you- ugh) . That is such a turn off. Please don’t ever even consider doing that!

The other thing I like abot this website- it that is focuses the process of planning a wedding and joining of two people. Weddingbee looks at the whole picture- not just selling a product for a particular item. 

I never even went to the knot, or projectwedding once I found this site. When I barely skimmed the other websites I got overwhelmed, I didn’t like their formats (with all the ads everywhere). 

Anyhow, I tend to gravitate more towards the low key, personable things (like mom and pop stores, or off the beaten path boutiques).

I would have to say the community.  I have found friends here at the Bee and I find that really inspiring for a website to have achieved.

I love following the DIY projects. The bees have such a range, too. Some are incredibly crafty and have jobs in creative fields, while others are just beginning DIY projects. It’s great to see how real brides handle their weddings and budgets. Also, since there’s finally a bride in Nashville it’s great to follow her vender reviews and tidbits about the city. I heart weddingbee SO much!

  • Has a diverse group of bloggers
  • I’m always inspired whenever I’m in the bee hive
  • I really don’t need a planner until the day of because your site is helping to guide me through the planning process
