AHHHHH 19 days until I am married! FI and I have been dating for over SEVEN YEARS, and nothing could make me happier than marrying the man of my dreams BUT…. I’m nervous about getting married and having all the planning be over! I found out today that a friend got engaged and felt a pang of jealousy because of all she gets to do now to prepare for the big day! I’ve had a wonderful year and a half of planning, and its probably taken up too much of my life, but I’ve seriously loved every second of it. Now, in 19 days, it will be all over. Not that my to do list will be empty, seeing as how we bought a house in May and I started a new job in August (Bar results come out October 9! Wish me luck!) Anybody else feeling sad about the end of planning? I know my wallet will be happy, and so will my “craft/wedding room” which has gotten out of control, but I will definetly miss it! Just wanted to get that out there!

At this point I still have so much to do I can’t feel that way yet, but I’m sure it won’t be long! I hope to not have to worry bout it once the honeymoons over, cuz then I have to finish college, find a new job, figure out where we’re going to live, then find a job and a place to rent there. Once we’re settled, we can then look for a house. Phew, makes me tired just thinking about it!!

I was super duper sad to be done with all the wedding planning, but that has just increased my time on Weddingbee and wedding blogs to keep my obsession fed. 🙂 My husband thinks I’m crazy.
I definitely dove into nesting though, and have started following newlywed, design and cooking blogs! You might find yourself transitioning into married life more than you think…and you can always hang out here on Weddingbee and offer other brides advice from all the lessons you learned along the way.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

I alternately can’t wait for it to be over and don’t want it to end. I probably just won’t know what to do with myself afterwards.

It is a little sad, but i am so done, i hardly have any energy left, my apartment has boxes all over, and my room at home is a mess cause all my furniture is gone. I can’t wait to be on my honeymoon with my new hubby. I am happy for all the stuff i’ve done and all the work i’ve put in, but i’m ready to party and share my love with my family.
Afterwards, the apartment will keep me organizing and that’s enough for me. Besides ski season will be starting soon and i couldn’t be more jazzed about that.

I was buying a few last minute things today, and I thought about how sad it is going to be to not find cool new projects and great deals. Hahahaha. But I read in one of our counseling books that it’s a difficult hurdle for a wife to get over – not being the bride anymore.
My thing is pictures. As long as I have photo documentation of these “princess days” that should be a good pacifier of sorts. Also, I have tried to keep some on-going, non-wedding projects going so I don’t feel immense stopping of forward motion as soon as the wedding and honeymoon is over.

I am in the middle of the road. I cannot WAIT for this to be over with (too much stress) but then again, I feel you only get married once. It’s hard to plan a great party from 350 miles away on a tight budget, and I’ve been feeling that way for about 2 months now.
We are hopefully closing on a condo this Friday (our first house!!) so I’m hoping once I get back from our honeymoon I’ll have unpacking and all that stuff to keep me crazy busy, then the holiday season, that I won’t have time to think straight until February!

I think that’s so common! My friend told me she had a sort of panic attack because she constantly felt like she had so much to do but when she realized that feeling wasn’t necessary she freaked. I was like oh brother, its gonna be bad for me then because she also had a 4 month old child to occupy her at that point. I won’t, but we did create some projects for after the wedding, and I’m sure that’s what’ll help you. We’re going to move, get a new car, try to have a baby and all of that will be just what I’ll need to feel productive again lol.
