Here is the email interview:
1) Can you give me an introduction of yourself, when and how did you startout and what is your wedding site & business about?
My name is Bee, and I run weddingbee.com, a wedding planning community comprised of a blog, messageboards, classifieds, a wiki, and beetv where users can interact with “bees” over live video and chat. We help brides plan their weddings by showcasing real brides and their stories.
Our blog is like “reality wedding planning” because readers follow along on real brides’ entire wedding planning journeys.
2) I understand you have been in the wedding-related field for quite some time. What do you think is the key factor to your success?
I think that we try to be honest and show what really goes into wedding planning – the good, the bad, and the ugly. We talk about the kind of things you don’t really see in wedding magazines like breaking a contract with a vendor, step by step diy instructions, problems with in-laws, contraception.. if it’s related to wedding planning, we blog about it!
3) When you are working with couples, what is it that you are most proud of?
I’m most proud that we’re able to help so many couples plan their dream weddings whether it’s a casual backyard barbecue or a lavish ballroom affair. I think that we have a little something to offer every couple.
4) What is the greatest challenge that you have faced while growing your career?
I think the greatest challenge has been the pressure I put on myself. I’m obsessive, pessimistic, and a perfectionist which sometimes makes it hard to appreciate any successes.
5) What are some of the areas do you think wedding couples always overlook when planning their own weddings?
I was gulity of this myself — I spent more time planning the reception than I did planning the ceremony. The ceremony is really why all your friends and family come together on your wedding day, so make it meaningful, personal and memorable.
6) Your final thought and advice for my wedding blog readers?
Enjoy the wedding planning process! There will definitely be times when it gets stressful and overwhelming, but remember that at the end of it all you’ll be marrying the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and that’s the most important thing of all.
That?s the end of the interview.
