Man, I didn’t know what to do with myself when the wedding was over. I was a little bit sad. Honestly, we got back into the swing we had going before our life became nutso and overrun with wedding planning. Now we are free to sleep in, see friends, go on weekend trips to visit family/friends, etc. We also adopted a corgi a few months back, so we’ve been getting to know him and doing things with him too. 🙂 

I also started online schooling again to supplement my animation knowledge, tho I’ve only been doing that for about 5 weeks. 🙂 

I definitely recommend a hobby. 🙂 Maybe start doing little things here and there to your house/apartment? We started putting stuff up and painting rooms shortly after the wedding. 😀

I feel the same way. I have been used to getting up early to run errands and finish little projects for the past couple weeks. Now I dont know what to do with myself, lol!! Well, at least I have my honeymoon in a couple weeks to finish planning.

@trixiesrockets:  Funny thing–I was actually on weddingbee MORE after my wedding, then before. It felt like everyone had moved on and I was like…still there…after spending a whole year of my life planning this thing!!! It honestly took me several months to find new hobbies. I ended up training for a 5k and taking drawing classes.

@lanipapillon:  This.  There are some days I can’t believe I’m STILL here almost 2 years after our wedding!  But yeah, I really didn’t become a crazy WB addict until well after our wedding day. 🙂  I really enjoy this community, and love to help future brides figure out what they’ll be doing on their special days!  Living vicariously is fun!

Tons of WeddingBee, still keeping up my half maraton training, and I went and got knocked up on the honeymoon!

I’ll be running a half marathon when I’m 5 months pregnant!

I was finishing school when we got married (tons of free time), and then started my new job a few weeks after the wedding (no free time).  Hence why we got married when we did.  But I really enjoyed just sitting around being married, being constantly surprised and delighted by my new husband, and settling into our “adult” life.  We got a dog about 7 months after the wedding, and that was amazing too, but I’m glad we settled in on our own first.

Same boat here! I’m looking for a job… I left mine about a year ago shortly after getting engaged.  I let myself have sometime off to plan the wedding and told myself I’d start looking after!

We got back from our honeymoon on Saturday. I’ve been organizing pictures from the honeymoon, starting thank you notes, and reading up on charting & baby making!

I’ve only been engaged for a month and I’m already excited for the wedding planning to be over. I can’t wait to be able to do things without feeling guilty because there’s a million wedding things to do.

I’m so happy I found this thread! The wedding has been over for a week and a half and I don’t know what to do now! Which direction I should take! I went straight away to thinking about babies, but I think that’s slowed down a bit now lol Remembering that we want to do some house renos and put in a pool!! I think I do need a hobby, although a bunch of my friends have now asked me to help them plan their weddings!

I’m happy the stress is over from the wedding but I’m also sad and sometimes it feels like it never really happened, like it was something I just dreamt about. Hopefully it’ll start to sink in soon. 🙂

I didn’t miss the wedding at all. Of course, I had a simple wedding that didn’t require a great deal of planning – we basically had four vendors. A limo, the bakery, my uncle’s band and the venue where we were both married/had our reception.

Other life factors – issues with my stupid job, for one – played a bigger role for me in, “What do I do now?”

It turns out – moving. I tried knitting for ages but found it a little dull and tedious. Also, procreating. We just started trying a few weeks ago.

Trying to find a new job.

Reading a little bit more.

I started watching that “The Vampire Diaries” show on Netflix. It turns out I hate the show, but I love evil Ian Somerhalder. I should probably be embarrassed that I’m watching a show just because a character’s sexy. Meh.
