if you miss the wedding planning aspect – maybe plan a big party?  i planned a formal new year’s bash with some friends post-wedding, and it helped me realize how much i’d learned from planning my wedding.  or help your friends/family plan their weddings?  or continue to read weddingbee to feed the wedding addiction like i do?

if you feel a void due to lack of wedding activity – maybe you could use this time to do all the things you’ve wanted to do but never got around to.  like brushing up on cooking skills, starting a new workout schedule, learning how to sew, taking a dance class.  well, those are things i want to do, but i’m sure you can think of your own ideas.

what did you like about wedding planning?  was it the creative aspect, or the entertaining aspect, or the leadership aspect?  perhaps choose another activity that helps you continue that.

Hehehe.. yeah, take up a good new hobby.  Mine happened to be knitting… and then we got a puppy, and needless to say, he’s a nice, lovable little diversion!!

I like franoia’s tip. I hope I’ll remember that too when I’m in wedding withdrawal. πŸ™‚

My wedding planning immediately transitioned to nesting – planning redecorating projects in our house, new recipes to try, and developing baby fever!

I was relieved actually, but I have read your feelings are common! You could do a scrap book of the wedding, that could occupy your time for a bit. 

I was like jbbird and totally transitioned into cooking, decorating, etc. I have baby fever as well, but it’s far off. I’ve been doing reading on pregnancy though to prepare myself.

As far as zombie threads go, this appears to be a prizewinner! Original post was made 7 years ago! Hopefully she’s found something to occupy her time with.

Hahaha. I did not realize this thread was 7 years old. In my defense, I was not the person who resurrected it!

Sassygrn:  Oops, not sure how I came across this thread from 7 years ago! Never heard it called a “zombie thread” though…at least we have some convo going now! πŸ™‚

Steampunkbride:  No, I had no idea I was resurrecting an old thread! Not sure how I came across it to comment… Hoping OP found something to do πŸ™‚

MrsCallalily:  Any tips on what to read for pregnancy, or are you just reading more WB threads? I am transitioning to a new job at my compancy soon, which leaves time for reading and then of course preparing for pregnancy/baby!

SKyAlex:  Congrats on your upcoming wedding and move! Do you live in Canada already or are you moving to a different country? How exciting either way! As far as advice for nesting…I spent some time on pinterest looking at ideas for painting/decorating and tried to add some decor that I liked to our wedding registry. A lot of stuff we bought for our house we used wedding giftcards/money to buy it with. DH and I also moved into a new house after we got married, so neither of us had to transition to the other’s home…we started a new one together! Therefore I had the opportunity to decorate as we wanted to. Idk what stores there will be in Canada or where you live now…but I find great home decorating items at reasonable prices at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Target, and Kohls. Now I’m obsessed with looking at pinterest for future nursery ideas and I’m sure when the time comes will go crazy decorating again πŸ™‚
