I am sooo happy that my husband and I are married. I keep trying to remind myself of all the little details. My photog has started to leak me some photos, and it just makes me remember sitting in those spots, walking in that area. I’m not sure I will always remember those moments, but I’m so glad we have photos to help us remember.
But overall, I’m happy that the wedding is over and we are happily married. I know that’s horrible to say, but I am so much more relaxed, so much less stressed, just enjoying life now. We actually lounged around the house for about half of a day yesterday… something we haven’t done in forever!
I’m not feeling a void from the wedding, I’m glad that it’s past. Now I’m starting to think about getting our house together. He’s even thinking about kids!
I just wanted to send a message to soon to be brides out there… there is life after the wedding & it’s wonderful. And our wedding will live on forever in photos and in our memories. While in the end, it was all worth it. I’m glad it’s over & we are getting on with life.
Any of you other recent brides feeling the same way??? Anyone not?

I totally feel the same way. We finally have a social life again. Before the wedding all weekends and evenings were spent preparing for the wedding. Its nice to be able to catch up with friends again!
We also are looking to do some home improvement projects here soon. We registered for new bath sets so I want to re-paint my bathroom. We also are going to use some of the wedding money for new hardwood floors.

Couldn’t of said it better. Its so funny because sometimes I’ll get a pang of anxiety out of nowhere, and its comforting to realize there is no reason to feel anxious anymore. I’m so happy where we are right now. I’m glad we did the traditional wedding and went through everything we did to get to that point. And now we can just… LIVE. Yay!

Yes!! I am totally in agreement with this, and jennifer_espos’ comment about anxiety – its so strange, but nice, to know I don’t need to hold my breath anymore! We’re married, we’re happy, and there’s no more stress!

Glad to see that all you bees are enjoying wedded bliss.
I can once again talk to my mom on the phone w/o arguing about something. I can pay my bills w/o having to worry about wedding expenses. We can book weekends to do things! So exciting.

I too, am glad that the wedding has come and gone, and that we are happily on the other side. Our wedding day was fantastic. All I could have asked for is for it to have lasted a little bit longer. It was over before we knew it. I don’t really have a void now that the planning is over either. We are talking kids and have an offer in on a house that we’ll hopefully close on soon, so I guess I’m filling my time with other things. It just feels really good to be able to have time with my husband that is not focused on making to do lists and scheduling fittings and pick ups.

I loved my wedding day, but just the day-to-day of being married is so much better. I was looking at my calendar from last summer before the wedding, and seeing all the appointments and deadlines and don’t forget this and don’t forget that … oh man, I do NOT miss that at ALL.

I share your exact sentiments. While I loved wedding planning and had a fabulous wedding day, I am SO glad it’s over and very happy with my new life! We’ve already gone to one wedding as guests since our wedding and it was FAB-U-LOUS! We even got a little tipsy!
Our work isn’t done, we still have about 2/3’s of our thank you cards to write and we have to change my name and set new marital budgets, but I feel like I’m on cloud 10, cloud 9 was when we were engaged 🙂

I love hearing the newlywed bees say things like this…
Helps give me that second wind when things are getting me down!

We attended a wedding this weekend too! I got tipsy, hubby got more than tipsy 🙂 But we had a good time with friends this weekend.. wonderful feeling.
We are just getting started on the Thank you process. Just got the photo that I am using for the post cards today – so going to order those quickly.
Waiting for the marriage license in the mail to start the name change here. Excited for that too!
Now I am going to stop at Rite Aid, pick up some Advil for my hubby who pulled his back today – then make dinner, maybe bike for a bit, get my post cards ordered & chill before bed 🙂 As much as I can chill with temps in the mid 90s!!!

I definitely love being married and I’m glad we’re not wedding planning anymore! Some of my married girlfriends told me “you’re so gonna miss wedding planning!”, but I honestly don’t! I just went to change my name at the Social Security office (exciting!), and we opened a joint bank account. I’m so happy to be done with the wedding, and moving on with married life!
