        That might just have made my night.
        "Some brides chat from their desks at work, others can’t go to bed before signing in one more time, some even tune out their fianc©’s voice while riveted to the computer."
        hehe, guilty.

        so if the girls on the knot forum are "knotties" then what are we called? I think the bdw girls should get a cute nickname.

          very very true, I must say when I can't sleep (which has been often lately) this is the first place I go to, and I often don't hear what my FI is saying anymore because I'm too busy focusing on the forum!! haha He finds it quite amusing.

            I love this... “I can’t explain why I felt that level of comfort.” - so true!
            All of you had more input & advice for my wedding than my MOH, mom & even DH!!

              I'm laughing at the cocktail napkin part - I just got mine in and showed it to my bridesmaid with great enthusiasm and I don't think she shared the same level of joy as I did! God bless our forum friends!

                This article was dead on. I've been on other forums so I know what it's like to be brought together on a common interest but it's even worse (or better, depending on how you look at it) with weddings since it is a huge step that requires a TON of planning.
