Hopefully there are still October 2015 brides on here. I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since we said I do.
How has the first year of marriage been for everyone? For us, I truly think it’s been the best year of our whole relationship. There was no huge change (other than my last name) since we have lived together for a couple years now. But it has been a lot of fun being able to call him my husband and hearing him call me his wife. Knowing I have such a hard working, caring, and fun man to spend my life with is such a great feeling. We have had so much fun this past year and I know the coming years will be just as much fun with him by my side.
What is everyone’s plans for celebrating their 1st year of marriage? We have planned a trip to Florida… even though my mom has decided she needed to join us. But I told her that on the day of our anniversary (October 3rd) I would like for it to be just us two. He apparently has a gift for me… but I’m at a loss of what to get him. I just cannot wait to relax on the beach.
Any talk about future plans? I have had baby fever for the last couple months, and my husband has said that he is ready too. Unfortunately, with our trip to Florida we are going to have to hold off on TTC with the Zika scare. So about 6 months after we get back from Florida we will be trying for a baby finally 🙂
It’s been nice not having to buy wedding things, especially since I love decorating the house for holidays and I finally get to do that this year. I still miss our wedding day and our honeymoon. I often look at the wedding photos so I can replay all the memories. I hope all you brides have had a wonderful for year of marriage and I’d love to hear what you have been up to. Here’s to 1 down and many more to come!!

I’m here 🙂 I am looking forward to completing the first year and having it behind us although it’s been fun. There’s been many ups and downs we were hit with but we were able to work together and get passed the obstacles that were put in our way. I miss our wedding day (the best day of my life) and our honeymoon which I could never forget.
I like you have had baby fever for a few months but I am keeping myself in check for now, we have discussed a timeline that works for both of us so I am looking forward to that 😀
For our anniversary we might go away to a quiet town and just enjoy the cool crisp Fall air that we both love so much, and although we thought about teh Caribbean and Florida I am really afraid of getting Zika and then having to put our TTC plans on hold for longer than we want to.
Congrats on your first year and to many more 🙂 Yayy us!

Congrats on your anniversary!
This year feels like it has gone by really fast and also a bit slow, oddly enough. So much has happened, odd that it has only been a year but at the same time our wedding does feel like forever ago. For our relationship nothing has really changed, we lived together long before marriage.
For our anniversary we will see the Cirque du Soleil show where he proposed. It has recently had a “reimagining”, that I had a very very small part in. I’m looking forward to it. Also dinner at the restaurant where we married. We just came back from Disneyland with his family. We wore matching pirate shirts the first day and bought the silly married matching Mickey ears. Yes, it was barf cute, but had to be done. The second day his sister made up matching tee-shirts of our names and favorite characters. She gave us Donald and Daisy. So stinkin cute! I did feel like a touristy dork but it was so sweet to be included in his family, so I didn’t mind.
No babies on the horizon, we are CFBC.
We are getting ready for Halloween, we have the dog costumes, our costumes and have stuff to make the house. We go a bit crazy, theatre nerds after all.

I’m still here! (Oct 24th!)
Our first year has been the hardest, but not for the reasons I think people usually say it is. Relationship-wise nothing much has changed. We already lived together, we are happy and have fun together. I tell people it’s just like before but with nicer dishes. 🙂
But… his mom is ill and has been for a long time. She had a fall and things kind of went downhill. We ended up moving her to an assisted living home near us. The whole process was really stressful and brought up a lot of horrible stuff with his sister. It was honestly so stressful I ended up on meds for depression and anxiety and have been in therapy for several months. Things are finally settled down now, though, and I’m feeling much better. My therapist is getting ready to transition me out of meeting with her.
We have no big anniversary plans mainly because all our extra money is going to the horrendously expensive assisted living home. Hopefully we’ll be able to manage maybe a weekend away or something, but I don’t mind if we just have a nice dinner out.
I do, however, really REALLY need to get all our random wedding decor out of the big ass bin I brought home from the venue! I need to make a shadow box with some of it and then toss the rest. 🙂

I had considered canceling the trip… but we both still have plenty of time to have kids so I wasn’t too worried about pushing TTC back another 6 months. I love the fall! And we will be missing the fall festivals surrounding towns have, but as long as I’m with the one I love that’s all that matters. And I’m sure you feel the same way. Happy anniversary to y’all also!!
I love that you will be visiting the place where he proposed and where you got married. What a lovely way to spend your anniversary. And all that you did in Disneyland, love it! I still want the pins that say just married on them and I wanted those Mickey ears too. I spent WAY too much money on fall/halloween decor. I was just a little excited about fall haha, but atleast our hourse looks great now. I was told I can’t dress our dog in a halloween costume… dang it!

I am so sorry your first year of marriage isn’t going so well. I can’t imagine how hard that is. I hope things start looking up for the two of you. Hey, no plans are okay too… as long as you are with the one you love that’s all that matters. And yes you’re right, it’s the same but with nicer dishes and new kitchen supplies haha! I NEED to do the same with our wedding stuff. I would like to do a shadow box as well. I have gotten some of the decor our of the house… but someone is borrowing it and we get it back. BOO! Happy anniversary to you two!
