It seems this comes up a lot. It’s human nature that people will want to share with each other, if we didn’t we wouldn’t have had “show and tell” in Kindergarten. So I was curious, Why do you post pics and ask for Opinions.

I don’t. I trust my own opinion more than that of strangers.
But heck, I love giving my opinion when others ask for it 😉

I had to go in the category of “I don’t have many people to help with decision making, so I need REAL advice”
I don’t really have anyone, my sis is Maid/Matron of Honor and that’s by default. I don’t even have people for BMs so I just picked the only cousin that lives near, and the lady that owns the bar I’ve worked at for 7 years we’ve beome sorta friends in that time.
I just don’t get out much but to work 1 night a week, so I don’t really have friends. I truly DO need help and opinions.

I do it because I feel like everyone else I ask IRL is just telling me what I want to hear about everything because they know how stressed I am with wedding planning (29 days!) But I know that even if it hurts, I want to know if something could be improved!!

sometimes i just need a little persuading that my decisions aren’t the bad ones
or I need help to figure out that I already knew which one I really wanted even if it means going with the one that didnt have the most votes in the first place… if you know what I mean

I don’t like bothering my MOH/FI ect. before the idea is pretty solid. I could ask them, but I like coming here first.
I mostly post pictures to help out other brides (they want to see my dress on a real bride, they want to see a specific kind of ring, they’re considering my colors ect.)

I think it depends. Sometimes I’m posting a pic because I want honest opinions. In which case, I will ask for opinions. (Or put up a poll, because people are more likely to answer honestly if you put up a poll!)
Sometimes I will put up a pic just to share something I’m proud of because I’m excited. In which case, I will not ask for opinions. I think it’s stupid to say, “Please give me your honest opinion” if what you really mean is “Please tell me how great this looks!” I generally try to say what I mean.

I haven’t posted any questions with pictures yet but as I get further into planning I know I will be.
Three years ago I moved from my home state, 1200 miles away to a new state and therefore any family and close friends are still there while I am now here. Out of all the weddings I’ve been a part of as a bridesmaid and as a Maid/Matron of Honor I found myself saying “it’s your day, get what you want” a lot which isn’t that helpful.
The fact that this forum exists so brides can ask other brides their opinions and for any advice is awesome. Wedding brain has started to take effect already as I’m excited to finally be engaged after 5 years of dating.

I liked that I could choose several options with this poll, because I think it depends on my mood/what I’m posting about.
I haven’t posted a ton of pictures on the Bee yet (in fact, they’ve all been of my engagement ring so far), but I know that I will be posting more frequently as wedding planning progresses.
I know myself pretty well, and I know when I do end up posting pictures of dresses, colors, etc. it will be for one of the following reasons:
1.) I’m unsure about it, and I want opinions (good and bad)
2.) I have an idea that I want to work with, but I’m not sure how I can tailor it to our personal tastes, budget, etc.
3.) I don’t have a lot of people to help with decision making (I live in the Midwest and my family and many of my closest friends live on the East Coast, so they won’t always be around to give opinions)
4.) The people I’d be asking for opinions (my mom, best friends, etc.) are super sweet and aren’t usually willing to give criticism (and I need honest opinions!)

- Wedding: September 2014 - Lodge
My support group is scattered and I don’t always get to ask for advice like I want. My mom is here but mostly she tells me its not her decision…like that helps. So I post for various reasons like honest answers and opinions. Sometimes I just want others to tell me I chose the right path. Other times I’m at a standstill on what to do with an idea so I need help. I’d just like to say “I love you bees! Thanks for being thee for me”
