I stumbled upon it after Fiance took me ring shopping, so I found a safe haven in the waiting boards for a few months, until it was driving me nuts and I stopped posting and was unsure if I’d visit again. Well, then we got engaged and I’ve been back, for wedding stuff and also because of the community. Fiance thinks it’s cool I have these boards for girl talk since most all of my friends live in another state and I don’t really have any close friends here. 🙂

I found this site by googling my name – because I’m a photographer. A potential client posted my name and website…which brought me here. Then I was in “waiting” and getting close and decided to just stick around and I got engaged. Now I’m here for ideas and information on wedding sites, dresses, DIY….

A random wedding search just after getting engaged. I love all the real advise given here, and now that we have been TTC for so long, the support is amazing and so very appreciated!

I wanted to see pictures of people wearing the dress I chose so I Googled “Martina Liana 377” and some of the top responses were posts from WeddingBee. I was a board lurker for awhile and just decided to start posting one day, so I created an account. Been addicted ever since lol

I was in CVS looking through a bridal magazine, and this was advertised. So I decided to google it when I got home and thought it looked like a fun site to join.

I met up with a girlfriend of mine who had gotten engaged a few months before me and she literally said, “Have you signed up for WeddingBee yet?” I went home and did so immediately. Then I was a little mad at myself for not knowing about it/signing up for it earlier, because my waiting period would’ve been a Hell of a lot easier if I had!

I joined a couple of months after getting engaged. I was googling information on Save the Dates and came cross these boards. I found really helpful answers to my questions, but did not “join” at that time. I joined and made my first post when I had a question regarding a situation with a pregnant friend who has changed for the worse since becoming a mother. It was the kind of thing that felt inappropriate/mean to discuss with anyone that might know her. It occurred to me that I could get advice on here about my friend without embarassing her. I received excellent advice and have loved the site since. The only complaint I have are the occasional bizarre posts made to waste time about make-believe situations. I also find it really weird that so many single people are on here, but hey- to each her own. I understand single membership when, for example, a woman is helping to plan her best friend or sister’s wedding, or is graphic designer who does invites, a bridal salon owner, a florist, etc. What I find odd are the 15 year old girls asking us which dress we like best, or telling us about Facebook chats they had with some boy at school who asked for sexual favors. I wonder where their parents are, and think those waste of time posts lower the overall quality of the experience these boards offer.

I came on the site because I needed a soft place to land in the wedding planning process. I am alone in the process because I had a BF that is so damaged by her own experience with her marriage that she cant be happy for me.
The fact that my Fiance is in the military and I need to be around positive people in a sea of unhappy divorced people who dont remember what it means to be truly happy with a man. The women in my life are still angry because it didnt workout for them. They failed to see they made a choice for whatever reason and it didnt work out MOVE ON and STOP hating all men.
I waited later in life to decide to get married and was supportive to all my friends who made the choice to get married when they did, but I feel alone because I am living the second half of my life in happiness with the man that I love.
The Bees have been so supportive and have given me sound advice and some has been critical but that comes with the terriority I guess. They have helped keep me grounded and remind me of what I have to look forward to by their responses and their topics.

@sapphirecupcake: I was googling questions about elopements and every link i clicked led me here! Then I started looking at other boards on here and decided to join so I could comment. I had already been engaged for almost a year when I joined several months ago. I’m still here because I love the helpfulness and contributing to try and help others.

I can’t remember how I got here, but I’m glad I found this place.
Then, and now, I don’t have anyone to talk to about this kind of stuff (engagement, impending wedding). All of my high school friends are married and starting families of their own and have basically moved on, and most of my other friends that I made at university graduated an entire year or two ahead of me.
I’m on other online communities, but most of them are single people whom I feel like get tired of me talking about my SO or the ring I’m waiting for or what kind of wedding I want to have.
It’s nice to be able to talk to people who are going through a lot of the same things you are. (:
