Mrs. Mouse was JUST talking about how she couldn’t believe the Puffer icon hadn’t been chosen yet…and lo and behold, she came to us! Please join me in welcoming Miss Puffer to the hive!
Miss Puffer, Baltimore, Maryland Age and Occupation: 38, Marketing Copywriter Fiance’s Age and Occupation: 44, Substance Abuse Counselor Engagement Date: October 20, 2014 Wedding Date: November 2015 Venue: The Mansion at Valley Country Club About Me:
I’m a 38-year-old copywriter who loves reading, Netflix-binging, blogging (a new love!), and kicking some butt playing Texas Hold ‘Em. I had been enjoying a quiet, rather boring existence in the Philly burbs with my cats until my fiance swept into my life two years ago. Since then, I’ve moved to Baltimore, had a shiny ring placed on my finger, and begun planning a wedding I never thought I’d have. To be honest, I never even wanted a wedding. As a big-time introvert, being the center of attention just ain’t my thing. But my loving groomzilla—er, fiance—wanted the “real deal”: lots of guests, a big cake, and the white dress. And now that we’re just seven months shy of the big day? I cannot wait. I’m psyched about our wedding, and I can’t wait to share the details with all of you.
Hey guys! Just stopping by for the last time before the big day! Today we are both off work and hopefully not scrambling around. Tonight is our rehearsal and then our welcome party, and tomorrow is the big day!
I am so incredibly excited and honored to marry my best friend. With all of the rushing around and planning and flowers and crafts, it’s easy to forget the purpose of the day. We will be joining our lives together and declaring our love for each other in front of all of our friends and family. Lucky does not begin to explain how I feel. I think that it will be hard for me to stop smiling all weekend!
Immediately after the wedding, we are heading on our honeymoon. We will be in Italy for two weeks! We are so excited for this trip of a lifetime.
But do not think that you will miss us. With the mystical powers of the blogosphere, we have scheduled blog posts to run for the rest of April. These posts will give you a sneak peek into some of the wedding details that we didn’t want to divulge before the big day. A lot of our friends and family read here, after all, and we wanted to maintain some sense of surprise.

Our post-a-thon “theme” is loosely spring, so be sure to bring all your best spring topic ideas & GIFs, and be ready to chat!
Squeeeeeeee, I’m a bee!!! I’m seriously so excited I don’t know what to say. It’s exactly like posing for a photo and not knowing what to do with your hands.
Quick! Somebody pretend this is a normal way to hold an umbrella!
So, moving on—that’s Mr. Hammerhead with me in that photo up there. We went to the same high school and started dating our senior year (I know, I know, barf). After venturing up to New Hampshire (for me) and Maine (for him) for college, we migrated back to our home state of Massachusetts and now work 100 miles apart and live roughly in the middle. We currently spend our days wondering if we’ll ever again see the ground under all that snow. Can I get a what-what, Miss Tractor and my other fellow New Englanders?
Hive, I’m so excited to introduce our newest blogger, Miss Hammerhead! She and her fiance are planning a wedding by the sea in Harwich Port, Massachusetts for this August. Just imagining a nautical summer wedding is putting a smile on my face as we slog through this icky winter. Let’s welcome her to the hive!
Miss Hammerhead, Harwich Port, MA Age and Occupation: 26, Legal Fellow Fiance’s Age and Occupation: 26, Software Engineer Engagement Date: December 25, 2013 Wedding Date: August 2015 Venue: Wychmere Beach Club
About Me: I’m a neurotic, “detail-oriented” (read: pain in the butt) legal fellow who does as much crafting as possible in my downtime. Software engineer Mr. Hammerhead and I met in our high school gym class, and I wholeheartedly believe that he was by far the best thing I ever got out of that class. Mr. Hammerhead, however, is very much into that athletic-sports thing, so he might feel differently. Our mutual obsessions include taking on projects that should probably be left to professionals, food, Pandora (the website, not the Greek myth), food, exploring new places, and food. We’re planning a colorful, semi-casual semi-formal wedding by the sea in August (uhh, six months away, when did that happen???), and I’m so excited to share it with you all!
I’m not clownin’ around when I say…I’M A BEE! Sorry, had to get that little pun in there somewhere.
I am so very excited to have been chosen to be a blogger bee! I’ve been reading Weddingbee since I first got engaged and had all-things-wedding on the brain 24/7. I loved reading about the other bees’ wedding-planning journeys, and now here I am, about to share mine. As Miss Clownfish. Whaaat?!
Since introductions can be a little awkward, I’ll try to keep this short and sweet and full of pictures. So without further ado, the not-so-formal introductions…
Our newest bee is a student and a pro photog! We can’t wait to see what this creative gal has up her sleeve for her wedding. Please join me in welcoming Miss Clownfish to the hive!
Miss Clownfish, Lancaster, Pennsylvania Age & Occupation: 22, Full-time student and Professional Photographer Fiance’s Age & Occupation: 23, Full-time student Engagement Date: January 5th, 2014 Wedding Date: September 2015 Venue: The Firehouse at Landis Valley Museum About Me: I’m a full-time college student by day and a wedding + portrait photographer by night. I’m one of the thriftiest people I know, but I am always willing to splurge on Starbucks—coffee is life. Mr. C is also a full-time college student studying to become an environmental biologist, although I’m sure if he could be a professional sports fan he’d choose that. We are high school sweethearts and the best of friends. During our spare time (…or procrastination time…) you can find us binge-watching Modern Family/Dexter/HIMYM, eating too much pizza, exploring Pittsburgh, and making countless Walmart trips just to get us out of our dorm rooms. We are planning a vintage-chic wedding celebration for about 100 of our closets friends and family while breaking some traditional wedding norms along the way. Operation: Best Day Ever.
