Because this thread now exists for me to talk about Weddingbee on, I'm going to get sucked back into Weddingbee now. Can we please talk about how emasculating it is for the fiances of these women to have to go by "Mr. Shiny Star" and "Mr. Eyelash Curler" or whatever the f**k the theme of the current generation is? I know it's for privacy and all but it's just so damn silly and weird LOL.

I like how Miss Gloves (one who isn't necessarily one of the ones I can get too jazzed about) calls her husband McGlovin because I am ten years old.

I get being excited about your wedding but there are women on there celebrating their 5th anniversary and 2nd kid who are still doing recaps of their proposals and weddings! Seriously ladies, if you have been married over a year and still have nothing else of value to talk about you need to evaluate your life.

I used to be an avid Weddingbee reader when I was planning my wedding in '08-'09.  I'm proud to say that I never looked at the boards (I never realized how much crazy I was missing!), but the main site was helpful to me because my husband and I were on a really tight budget and as a result, I was pretty much doing everything by hand (even the flowers).  Some of the bloggers provided helpful how-to posts and ideas. 

 

However, I definitely stopped reading within a few months of getting married.  I don't know how these women do it, but once we were married, I didn't want to think about the wedding/any wedding related anything for a solid six months.  I kept Weddingbee in my reader to follow up with some of the bloggers when they posted their recaps, but other than that, I didn't want anything to do with it.  I never understood the bloggers who would talk about how depressed they were after the wedding was over, since they didn't have anything to look forward to anymore.  THAT IS INSANE. omgomgomg Like, really effing insane.

EXACTLY. Like I keep trying to NOT start reading any of the WB bloggers as they're introduced because I don't want to get in to them and want to see how their weddings turn out. If that makes any sense? But I just want to make a clean break with wedding blogs now that my wedding's over, even though there's still a few I'm interested in seeing.

I hate it when they introduce new bloggers and they are always like "OMG, I jumped up and down and squealed with delight when I got my acceptance email, this is the best day of my life!".  Seriously?

 

WB was helpful during my own wedding planning because of all the DIY projects.  They also showed lower budget weddings, which I really liked.  

 

I hated when I would follow a blogger along through all of their planning and then they never did recaps.  I don't need 100 recaps documenting every second of the day, but at least a post showing how things turned out would be nice.

I did hate that too when I was an avid reader but I also get it. Because normal people are just not into talking weddings when the wedding is over. So selfishly I would want to see their wedding (Scissors was one I REALLY wanted to see after that awesome video she had) but understood that most likely, they just moved the f**k on after their wedding like most of us do and didn't want to sit around blogging about it anymore.

Oh, the 22 year old who pitched a b**ch fit on Thanksgiving over how much money her parents should give her wrote a post today about how it's soooo annoying to have to think about catering because she just "doesn't care about the food." She cares more about the pictures and the venue (because that's where the pictures will be!) than feeding her guests. She pretty much just wants to throw a few bags of Lays chips at them and make sure they look like they're having fun in her pictures and doesn't actually care about making sure they have a good time at her wedding. Ah, a Bridezilla at her best.

I get so turned off by the WB bloggers (and other wedding bloggers/brides/etc.) who are so turned off by the stuff that actually impacts the guests, like food and music. Why even bother inviting people?

Edited to add: Let me clarify; obviously, I don't think that people need to throw a big, fancy wedding to totally impress people. You're inviting people who you want to have at your wedding, and presumably they're coming because they want to be there to see you get married. But there's also a lot lately that I feel like is the completely opposite side, very, "I don't care what anyone else thinks", and it makes me uncomfortable as well. Hope I'm articulating it, and I don't think I am. So sorry, so uncaffeinated.

WB boarders are freaking RUDE! I asked (after my wedding) if I should send a thank you card immediately to someone who I know got us a gift (they told us), but who forgot to bring it to the wedding. (I was sending a card, just didn't know if I should say "Thanks for the gift [that we haven't seen so I can't thank you specifically] or if I should wait to thank them specifically [it was an awesome spice rack]). The reply I got was "How do you KNOW they got you a gift?" (with the implied – "idiot"). THE GUEST TOLD ME THAT'S HOW! Goodness gracious.

I tried not to read on WB because we had an "un-traditional" wedding (I wore BLACK – gasp!!), and I knew they'd tear me apart for it. I was going to do "reviews" because my local boards were really lacking – but decided that I didn't want to be verbally bashed by those nuts for choices different than theirs.

 

Re: WB divorce rate – don't forget the ladies that called it off! I can only think of one, but I can't remember her name/moniker.

 

GummiBear was my favorite! :)

Tiara, Snapdragon (who I think came back to plan her next wedding?), probably more.

I found weddingbee helpful when planning my wedding, but I felt like it was a lot of sorting chaff from wheat.  (Of course, it's hard to beat for snark-finding, since I found ThatWife wayyy back from her "I'm planning my wedding but not engaged" days on Weddingbee.)  

There has been more than one blogger for them who hasn't finished their lead-up to the wedding, let alone wedding recaps.  I assume it's a "I can't keep up with writing" thing rather than a "we broke up" thing, but it was annoying to have someone who I was following suddenly disappear.

Ugh. If I was meaner I'd hope her photos came out horrible.

We weren't super concerned about food, but were glad to see that people pretty much cleaned their plates when we went around and greeted guests. My husband and I went off our personal experiences where we really didn't remember the food one way or another (except recently, but I was a lot more aware of stuff while planning).

We put a lot of thought in to the music mainly because we have eclectic taste and we wanted to make sure everyone of our guests would want to get up and dance at some point during the night.

My local boards are also lacking, and I WOULD post, but I really do not feel like dealing with a bunch of internet trolls who truly, only think about weddings. It's not that I can't defend our decisions, I just don't want to do it to a bunch of weirdos who sit on a wedding BB all day (as opposed to me and GOMI, but whatever.)
