I was married in August yet I am still logging onto WB daily.haha! Over time I start to feel more and more disconnected. I don’t really know or follow these “new” bees. I’m not planning a wedding anymore. I love to see the bees from “my time” who are now posting thier wedding recaps. I like to get on the board and sometimes share with someone things I have learned now that I have “been there and done that”.
For a year while I was planning the wedding…this was such a huge place for me. On here daily..all day. Getting ideas and support. Drooling over pictures. Now I am married. Now there is no event that I am planning. But I miss the connection that I found on weddingbee. I really wish there was a place like this for us newlyweds. Not just a board…but a site with daily bloggers. I love following people’s lives. Like Mrs Avocado who is ThatWife and blogs all the time. Oh how I wish there was one central site….with newlywed bloggers. I miss having a place like this to come. I still am on here all the time…yet more and more I realize…I don’t belong here anymore.
There was this focus for so long…and now it’s gone. There was this site that we could go to and be around others like us. Now things have changed…life is different.
Are any of you newlyweds finding this a hard transition?

I know exactly how you feel…I do still enjoy reading the blogs, but it’s not the same as when I was planning a wedding too at the same time…a newlywed site would be so much fun!

I am with you, spraugebride – newlyweds that are happy but not to the ‘baby bee’ stage yet, lol =)

Meh, hasn’t stopped me from leaving yet, LOL. I don’t know what I’d even talk about as a newlywed….except “hey here’s what we painted our bedroom!” Lol….yes, it’s true. =]

@ejs4y8 – i think (IMO) that newylwed stuff does include “what we painted our bedroom” kind of stuff, but also includes how things are going post-wedding, like decisions you’re making, how life has changed for you, the discussion of waiting to start a family, etc.

Oh Laura, I feel like we have gone through so many things together. 🙂 I feel this way too, but I’m not sure what to do about it. I took a break from WB for a little bit, but have found myself drawn back in like never before. I ache to connect with other newlyweds. Other people who are going through the struggles of combining finances, others who are dealing with the constant “When are you having babies?” questions, others who are “missing” their wedding in a way that our husbands don’t understand. I’m glad you’re still hanging around – and I’m glad that we’re not the only ones! 🙂

I can’t bring myself to leave either. I guess it’s best described like august15 said that I ache for connections with other newlyweds. My husband’s work friends are newlyweds but we still haven’t really made a connection so it’s hard to talk to them much.
It definetly feels strange being here sometimes but I do still like seeing the board bee’s process. I agree that I’m not really involved with the new blogger bees.

- Wedding: August 2018 - Oakland Manor
haha right here with you 🙂
But I would say, that a wedding is nice to blog about, b/c it has a distinct begining, middle and “end”. Newleywed “newelybees?”would be difficult I imagine, unless you put like, “term” limits on bloggers? And had people at different newleywed stages, months in maybe? 1 year in, 2 years in, etc.

I think one of the big ironies in my staying past my wedding is the fact that I still want to read the ‘old Bees’ blogs (like their random updates that come up, plus their recaps) and I do like some of the ‘new Bees’ posts because i wanted them to become Bees so bad, but I guess I hold a grudge still that I never became a Bee and I get really kind of sad when new Bees are introduced. Ugh, I know it’s lame.
