While i thought i was keeping my wedding obsession to a minimum with work friends, i have gotten this a few times recently “What are you going to do when your wedding is over?” Like its so obvious that i am already suffering from PRE-post wedding depression! My FI has also asked me this several times as well, and instead of just saying “i’ll be fine” or “I don’t know”. I actually answer them honestly: “I will have my pictures to obsess over, i will write recaps on weddingbee, and i can continue to post on weddingbee for as long as i want and indulge myself with wedding stuff anytime i want”. then when i get the “are you crazy or pulling my leg” look, i start to defend myself by saying “there are SO many people on weddingbee who got married years ago and are still posting, so its not like i will be the only one!”
anyone else have these types of convos with their friend or FI?

People ask me about this all the time, especially the FI. I just try and keep the mindset that the wedding is only one day and the marriage is what lasts forever. I’ve got SOOOO many things going on in my life to keep me busy including our two children and my career. I’m sure everything will go by so fast and yes, I’ll be sad that its all over already. I’ll probably take some time to reflect and look at pictures, daydream, etc. However, I’m going to try and stay positive and look forward to all the other great things in life.

I have not been asked that question, though, I have been asked, “how come you don’t talk about your wedding? are you not excited? does your fiance know?”…
i’ve very busy with my design jobs and my clients. I’m also trying to keep my wedding talk to a minum because my best friend is getting married in 3 weeks and i her to have the time to shine and then I’m also sharing august with my finaces best friend and his fiance who… well I just dont talk much about it.
BUT I AM THRILLED TO MARRY MY MAN! i just… i dunno i guess it just hasn’t taken over my life.

The only thing that is worse, is after the wedding, when everyone will ask “So how’s married life?”

@SandyThePoet: LOL, that and i am sure i will be getting “so when are you having kids?”
i think i get “what will you do when its over” question so much because even though i try really hard to not talk about it too much because i really don’t want to annoy everyone because i really get thw whole “no one cares about my wedding as much as i do”…but i think its because they SEE me on weddingbee and other wedding sites ALL the time. so they are asking what i am going to do with all this time i spend on wedding sites etc when i no longer have a wedding to plan. and how i am going to “handle” not having a wedding to plan.

People always have to have something to say…..you(we) will all obsess over our weddings for as long as we see fit…then we will find some other life event to obsess over lol….Plus if any of those women who were questioning you are married…well chances are they were the same way or similar….you just didnt know them then!
