oxstardust421xo:  What did you do before you started wedding planning?

I run, swim, bike, hike, ski, play tennis, cook, drink wine, shop, do volunteer work, have friends over, etc etc

  • Wedding: June, 2014

Well… I work, I spend time with my husband, I read, I knit, I watch movies. Life has continued post wedding as it was pre wedding. Really I was so happy for that wedding planning nonsense to be over so I could go back to life as normal.

Wear a wedding ring. Lol, that’s the only difference really.

What did you do before the wedding?

I work, volunteer, work out, read, meet up with friends- all the stuff I did before the wedding but with a little extra time to relax.

I’m planning my grad studies graduation dinner/dance… so I’m basically doing it all over again haha!

But actually, I am mostly filling my time with work and school.

for my husband and I, nothing changed from when we weren’t married to when we got married.  The only difference: we wear rings on our fingers and call each other husband and wife 🙂

Nothing much changed after we got married. I did get pregnant of our 2nd child so that took up a bit of time.

We took a break from painting all the rooms in our house when we got really heavy into wedding planning, so now we’ve gotten back into that, and he’s focusing more on building his career, and I’m taking an acting class, and we’re finally taking our dog that we got a couple months before the wedding to obedience school 🙂

I’m not married yet, but the wedding planning is such a small part of our lives I don’t think there will be much hole to fill. I’m still trying to figure out where all the stress and running around is that most brides talk about.

I am sure after the honeymoon, which is taking more planning than the wedding, we will focus on planning work to do around the house or our next vacation. We are always finding things to look forward to.

oxstardust421xo:  have date nights…anything from Netflix and takeout to dinner and a movie to a fancy night out on the town! We bought a house 2 months after the wedding so organizing, Home Depot and landscaping have been our big projects. We hang out with our friends and family, take our dogs to the dog park 2-3x a week, cook dinner, watch movies, go for walks and bike rides (when it’s not über hot out like it is now!), and currently we are TTC and talk about babies all the time, on top of everything else. We are also planning what activities we want to do on our October Vacay.

  • Wedding: February 2014

oxstardust421xo:  Haha ok all the answers you got took you so literally!  I read your question more to mean “do you feel a void when wedding planning is gone, and how do you fill it?”  I totally felt a void in a sense that I spent a lot of time looking at gorgeous things to get ideas for my wedding and after it was over I no longer had a reason to spend time doing that.  I didn’t give up on any of the hobbies I’d had previously when I started planning my wedding, I just added wedding planning to that normally unoccupied time (aka couch sitting, tv watching, that stuff).  And after you’ve been looking at flowers and sparkley things and wedding gowns for months, for some people years, filling that down-time with Seinfeld reruns again is a little bit of a bummer.  So while I still do the other things I did before the wedding (work, time with friends and family, running, swimming, reading, cooking, etc), I fill the wedding-planning void with looking at recipes on Pinterest, designing the nursery for our upcoming little ones (when the twins are here I think filling downtime will no longer be a concern…) and still browsing weddingbee, because I like looking at the pretty things, sue me 🙂
