Hi Bees, well back from the honeymoon as a Mrs.
Super excited that I have a HUSBAND. The wedding was spectacular, many guest loved the decor, the food, the favours, my dress and my DH suit. It was truly a dream come true. I cried only twice (yep I held up well 😛 ) Yep, my wedding is over I’m a MRS & I LOVEEEEEE IT!!!
but WHAT DO I DO NOW? I actually shed a tear as to my days of scanning, obsessing, planning via Weddingbee are over. I don’t need to scan the DIY Section, read up on the dresses I like, etc, etc. The withdrawl day seemed to be far away since I came on the Bee. But they have come ALREADY.
I need to plan or atleast help! So a quick invi to any Bees who need help planning or deciding ANYTHING. PM me 🙂 I may not be a seasoned wedding planner but I can be a helpful Bee, (fluttering eyelashes)
Any suggestions to how I can be more active on the Bee?

become a wedding vendor of some sort?
I’m not really excited about wedding stuff for wedding stuff’s sake, so I’ll be happy to move on to my/our next project once we’re married.

IF you are asking WHAT do I do next ?
Then I offer up what most Bees find solace in…
1- Savour the fact that you are a Newlywed (these days won’t last forever)
2- Turn your energies to getting your house in order… whatever that might mean for you. (Work – Saving Money – Decorating – Trying out new Recipes – finding your footing as a Wife etc)
Hope this helps,

Actually still pinned wedding stuff a few days after the wedding on Pinterest. Took me awhile to “slow down” and realize I didn’t need to do it anymore. Giving advice on here really helped me with the withdrawl process 🙂

Stick around for a bit and give the “been there, done that” perspective! I am finding those posts all around very helpful 🙂 Slowly ease out of it, instead of droppping it cold, it might be easier.

I like to hang out on WB and live vicariously through all of our new bride to-bes, and help them out where I can! 🙂

@Mz Izzie: I am in the same boat, and im bored lol. It’s like all of a sudden I don’t have a job or something! My life was wedding planning for 9 months, and now I have nothing to do or buy on the weekends. If anything, I am going to be a lot richer! LOL

@Mz Izzie: Stick around to give advice if you love all the wedding stuff. But there’s also super-active Nesting boards! You don’t have to leave Weddingbee just because you’re married 🙂

I’m just married too and totally enjoying the sudden shortening of my to-do lists, the vanishing of that constant feeling that I’m forgetting to do something important, the uncertainty and anxiety of planning a wedding long-distance. Not leaving the bee though! There’s still lots to do and I like wedding stuff for its own sake, and I’ve discovered it’s a lot more fun when it’s not mine hahaha. So I’m sticking around to chat and share experiences. No reason to disappear if you like it.

I suffered a little bit of the after wedding blues too….I think in a way we all do. There’s so much build up….months and months of planning and then……that’s it. one day, a couple hours…..it’s over.
But there are lots of things to be hopeful and excited about. Start decorating your new home, get involved with a charity, go traveling with your hubby….it doesn’t have to be a BIG trip. Go explore some close by towns that you two have never been too. Just enjoy being a newlywed! This is a very exciting time in your life and years from now you’ll look back on it a treasure it.

@icegirl105: LOL I sneak on the wedding pinterest board every so often haha. The wedding section actually does have some multi-function DIY inspiration…like yeah could be good for a wedding but could also be good for my yard 🙂 But I try not to repinn if it is from the wedding section…I don’t want my friends to think I’m crazy 🙂
OP I’m also focusing on getting the house in order, bills and budgeting, hobbies, planning our next trip (cruise to Alaska in June). I just graduated before the wedding so I’m not back to work, and won’t be until after the new year. It takes some stress off not being on the hunt just yet.
I have also reunited with my biological brother and sister. We have not known eachother for 28 years. It’s kind of floored me a bit…we’re going on a wine tasting trip/reunification visit in Sept.
One thing you can do, keep the married life board interesting 🙂 🙂 🙂
