I took to looking for redecorating the house (at the best price possible). I didnt ever really buy much, but I looked post wedding on the internet because like you I needed something to kill the time with. 

I also worked on some scrapbooks, gym, cooking etc.

I get it. I wasn’t lost post wedding, but for about 2 months there was a small hole I was looking to fill. Time took care of it mostly

hahahaha, I felt like that for maybe one day or two πŸ˜› But soon realized there’s more stuff to do and look forward….on my list included….send out thank you cards, wedding pictures, change last name, host dinner parties using new CHINA :). Redecorate home with wishing well fund πŸ™‚  Look at my videography of wedding, leave great comments on all vendors, sell unused wedding stuff, help a friend plan a wedding, because someone is always getting married, and by now you’re an expert :P, Enjoy newlywed life, going out together, romantic dinners, picnic. I was so stressed before wedding, ugh, weight lifted off my shoulders after the big day, now can enjoy hubby and our new life πŸ™‚

I think I’ll definitely have the “what do I do with my down time” moments, but like Brielle said I think I’ll be focused on finally painting rooms in the house we bought last sept, having time to finally entertain in it and with pretty new stuff, cooking more, talking about babies, having time to read something not wedding related, etc… I’m somewhat ready for normal life to ensue again, but I enjoy the crafts so I know I’ll miss that!

Um, this might be a bit captain obvious here, but how about you focus your newly-found free time on your new husband?  Time to enjoy your “happily ever after”!

I was fine for the first few months after the wedding because I had a huge project and performance going on, and I spent all my time and energy on that.  Now that that’s done, though…  Yeah, I’m feeling pretty useless without any big projects.  I’ve been working on planning Dungeons & Dragons stuff for the campaign I’m running (geek alert!), which has helped a bit, though it’s not the same.  Fortunately, I just got bridesmaided by one of my friends last week, and so now I can look forward to helping her plan her wedding!

This is a pretty common thing on the Bee. I always think – was your life fulfilling before the wedding? Because you should be going back to old hobbies, and reclaiming your life from wedding insanity! I was soooo happy to get back to my photography, plan trips, teach myself how to cook, etc. Maybe take a fun class or something to jumpstart your post-wedding life?

I put my energies into getting our house in order & cooking.  It’s kind of fun to use resources like Fly Lady and figuring out how to be a good “homemaker.”

I’ll be the same, all my free time is spent on wedding stuff! Will definitely miss it, but I’m hoping I can shift the focus to homemaking after that πŸ™‚
