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!

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 πŸ™‚

I love hearing the newlywed bees say things like this…

Helps give me that second wind when things are getting me down!

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!  Laughing
