yet, I’m here. Married, happily, August 8th yet still can’t pull away from the ‘bee. I know I’m not alone and of course have no shame. Though I don’t go into my own mental recaps of the wedding and week leading up to it more than once a day (ha!), I’m definitely still reeling from the event, the honeymoon that followed, the subsequent move and now new jobs for the both of us. Any one else out there coming down slowly from their wedding high/high intensity few weeks/months? Coping mechanisms? So far I find staring at my KitchenAid mixer to be soothing… 🙂
Are you on Weddingbee as much, more or less than before your wedding?

haha! I’d weened myself for a little bit, but this week has been excruciating at work and I missed it, so I’m back in the midst of an obsession. And I too should be writing thank you notes. I had dreamed of getting all 90-something written before our one-month mark, but that came and went. Our two month mark is a crazy-stressful day at work and the cause of my craptastic week, so I’m still holding out hope they’ll all be done by October 26.
And to answer your question–I’m probably STILL on here less than i was before the wedding, but it’s the first thing I check when I get home from work and the last thing I do before bed these days. I guess I really just cut out the mid-workday hours for the most part.

I hear you! I check in every day for the most part, but I am on much much less than I used to be. Not sure why exactly. I know I got a LOT busier after the wedding (which is hard to believe, but it’s true based on my schedule this year), and I have been having to get up a lot earlier than I did last year… so that cuts into my nighttime weddingbee ritual! I also can’t go on weddingbee at my new job, like I used to. And lastly, I think it depresses me a little bit to see so many people still planning their wedding when I am sadly, done with my own planning! I want to do it all over again! AHH!

I just finished writing my Thank You Cards to everyone that was invited from my side of the family. It took a while, but I’m glad it got done.
I set a date that I had to get it done, just like deadlines from work. Maybe that would help you accomplish your goal.

Me too. I just can’t get motivated to do them. Or anything wedding related! My dress is hanging in the spare bedroom waiting to be cleaned and preserved and/or sold. I still have two boxes of wedding junk in our living room I haven’t even gone through. And lets not even talk about downloading/saving all the non pro pics our family and friends took. I need another week to <span style=”text-decoration: line-through;”>procrastinate assess what needs done.

I think it has gotten worse for me because prior to the wedding I didn’t have time to be on the Bee as much as I wanted to because I was busy organizing and finishing DIY projects. So now that I have nothing to do to keep me busy, wedding-related at least, I come here to get my fix.

I’m on weddingbee about the same. I love it too much!
PS. Thank you notes plagued me for the 3 whole months, but I finally finished them last week. Biggest relief of my life (I had 96 to write!!)

I’m on wedding bee just as much, yet now I have even more time since I’m not trying to get ready for everything 🙂

I didn’t even discover weddingbee until AFTER my wedding! I know…*GASP*! So I’m definitely on here way more now than before…haha. Seriously though, despite my late discovery, I am still in love with this wonderful hive and enjoy spending time on Weddingbee when I have the chance 😀

So tonight I’m actually getting some thank you notes done… I agree with most that I am on here less and it is definitely a satisfying way to get a “fix” of something I was so invested in for so long/consumed soooo much of my time. I’m just happy to see people carrying on about their merry way in wedding planning – and note writing as it were 🙂
Dear Cousin Tony… we couldn’t be happier that you and Mary danced the night away… my dad had a great time catching up with everyone and we hope to do more of the same over some coffee from out fabulous new coffee maker… so thoughtful… thanks again…
ok – maybe a little too Price-Is-Right… I’m working on it 🙂

Oh, girl! You better get on with those thank you notes. I have to be honest here, I have heard from multiple family members about different weddings/bridal showers/baby showers/etc over the years (keep in mind, one side of my family is sooooo proper it makes me crazy some days) – “oh my gosh, I didn’t get a thank you until X days/weeks/months after I <span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>know she got my gift” or “I didn’t ever get a thank you at all!” I know, it’s borderline insane to say stuff like that, but people might start to wonder. Also, they have books out there for how to write ‘original’ thank you notes to each person for their gift if you are stuck on what to write (because although it is unlikely, somebody might realize you wrote the EXACT SAME thank you to them that you wrote to somebody else, just inserting their gift name and their name on the card! OOoops!).
Bon Chance 🙂

OK – so I’m not actually that worried about writing my thank you notes – have them well under way in fact – just wanted to say that I’m a newlywed who still loves weddingbee and has a little bit of her heart that would rather be make gorgeous weekend schedules ala Miss Apple Cider rather than wrapping the whole process up with, what are absolutely individual, thank you notes to my amazing family and friends who were insanely generous. As I unpack from my move I am reminded everyday of the wedding, the family and friends that came to support us and how lucky Mr. B&J and I are. The thank you notes are a symptom of my addiction to weddingbee, not my actual deliquence. That and the fact that I will only ever plan one wedding and I’m done… wow.

I think I’m on Weddingbee about the same, if not a little more than I was before the wedding. I can’t see myself ever leaving the ‘Bee! 🙂
