Ha ha… love it!!!

I totally hear you, even with the wedding over it still finds a way to still be in my life. I think this is a relationship that might end up needing a restraining order.

Lol, so funny!  Yeah, sometimes I realize I’ve been preoccupied with wedding planning and I take a step.  This is why I did a year and half engagement, to make sure I can do all the planning but it doesn’t consume my life.  Sometimes I just think I should get everything done now that I possibly can so idle time, is made for wedding plans lol.

Yeah it’s absurd.  My SO always asks……”So what are you going to do when all this is over?”  I guess I’ll have to find a hobby.  Any ideas?

Oh gosh, we just started planning and I already wonder what I am going to think about post-wedding.

I guess then maybe we can all spend time in the “real world” and getting acquainted to life with our husbands???

I’m looking forward to life without wedding planning!  Then I’ll have time to get my music learned, and get through my last couple semesters of school!

Haha… this is exactly why I advocate a short engagement, if you can swing it financially! My husband proposed on 4/12/09, we set the date a couple weeks later, and got married 9/12/09.

I am the kind of person that obsesses about planning things in general, so I knew wedding planning would be a nightmare if dragged out over a year or more. I am so happy that we kept it short. I did a solid three months of planning, one month of letting my husband take over, and now after the wedding I don’t feel like I am missing anything because I wasn’t doing it for too too long.

Good luck!

We have had a long engagement, like a year and half by the time it is all said and done. I figured this would be a good amount to plan and that it wouldn’t take over my life, I was wrong!! I definitely think that these last few months have been hectic, but I am glad I have had all this time because I have changed my mind on so many things that I know now will be perfect. I really think I will have withdrawal when its over. I even told my FI to expect to hear “It is so weird to not have to think about wedding stuff” like a million times on our honeymoon.
