While I was driving to work this morning I was thinking about how fast my wedding date is approaching. I dove head first into the planning since we set our 10/16 date in May. Even though the planning has been quite stressful at times (and still is) I have also enjoyed it all. I’m afraid when the wedding and honeymoon are over, that I am not going to know what to do with my time because I will have spent half a year being consumed by it all, and then having it all disappear in a blink of an eye.
Do you feel this way or do you think you will be relieved?

Nope. I will breathe a sigh of relief. This wedding has monopolized too much of my time. I am just looking forward to being married finally.
Ugh. We should have eloped. lol

I’m a week and a half out and no wedding blues yet! It does feel a little weird that it is over, but I found wedding planning mostly stressful and unenjoyable. It felt great to get to the actual day and be able to just let loose and have fun, since all I had done up do the day was worry about what I had left to do. Plus, now I’m married! It can’t get better than that!

In a way I was sad after it was all over, because it was nice to be the center of attention for a while. But I was also relieved to not be planning anymore, to not be spending tons of money on everything and to not have to worry about making everyone happy. Now all I have to focus on is my normal life and my new marriage, which is pretty awesome.

I think I’ll be mostly relieved. This is fun, but I’m happy to do it once and get it over with. The big wedding was never my dream. I can look forward to honeymooning in Ireland for two weeks, writing books, establishing a career, and finding and furnishing a place to live after the wedding. Awesome stuff. The wedding day is just the start. I’ll only get involved in bigger projects after this! So no, I doubt I’ll have much wedding withdrawal. 🙂

I’m going to be in major withdrawal.

Yes and I can’t wait! I am SO sick of wedding stuff!
Although, I realize once people can no longer ask me about the wedding, they’re going to ask other inappropriate questions – i.e. “When are you having kids??” (NEVER, btw.)

I am happy, happy, happy it is over. I still seem fascinated with wedding dresses and accessories and come toWB to drool, but as for wedding planning – it was a nightmare and I stopped grinding my teeth and pulling my hair out as soon as the wedding was over!

I will probably also be in major withdrawel! I have so much going on in my life, and I use wedding planning (and looking at weddingbee) as stress relief! Although I do have a year and a month left, so we’ll see how it goes!

I got married in October (closing in on the one year mark!) and have major withdrawal. I loved all the projects and event planning. One of my good friends just asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding though, so I am really excited to help her out in any way I can!

I had none. I was happy to be done & moving on to other projects. We had to reorganize our basement, reorganize our house. We are building a headboard & a side table, then painting our porch & front door.
I have to plan my sister and my husband 30th bday parties in the next year and a half. We are going to have a convalidation ceremony, and we are going to have a party at our house after. I’ll have plenty to plan & we have plenty to do.
My desire to stay connected to weddings keeps me coming back here!

I was so relieved when the planning was over, and I got my life back! I wasn’t constantly worrying about what my mom was going to freak out about next and my life wasn’t consumed 24/7 by wedding stuff! It was wonderful…
But, I do love a good wedding…so I keep coming back for more :o)

I know I will miss it. It has been stressful at times but it’s also fun to be so creative.
