@cherrycoke: OMG I am looking forward to that day and my wedding is 6 months away.

I think if anything I would have my planner do all of it instead of just partial but I wanted the experience so I am just trying to enjoy the journey of research, negiotiating, contracts and everything else.

I am but part of me is a little sad. I’m happy to have my life back and be stress free but I do miss all of the excitement and attention (I’m an only child, don’t judge me, lol). We’re leaving for our Honeymoon in a week from tomorrow so that’s keeping me occupied but I can’t help but get a little depressed when I watch the wedding shows. I knew I would be one of those crazies so I don’t know why I’m surprised, lol. On a positive note, I can now make non wedding related purchases! Haven’t done that in a looooong time.

I might be weird, but I MISS the planning. It was such a big part of my life, I feel a little sad now that it’s over and done with.

I don’t miss the stress of a long to-do list, but I do miss the planning a bit. I liked the design aspect of it, developing a vision and making it come to life. And I thoroughly enjoyed working with our vendors. They are such wonderful people, and it’s a little sad seeing them pass through my life. But, in the end, I am glad to have regular life back now. I am getting to spend a lot more relaxing time with Mr. LK and teen LK, and I so <3 my guys.

I am really glad it is over. Now my honeynmoon is over, too, and I am thinking, what am I going to do with myself? Oh wait, there is always the thank you cards! There are a lot of hobbies i pushed to the side, so now I guess I get to get back to those. Last night when we got back from our honeymoon, I kind of had this sad feeling because now it is time to get back to real life.

 

I am very happy and I know there is always a huge letdown after you build up to something for so long and then it is over before you know it.

 

Congrats to all of you!

those last few weeks for me were nuts, and I am definitely glad for me that the day has come and gone… I LOVED being engaged and wedding planning, but I defniintely underestimated how overwhelming it was to have ALL of our family and friends in town at once… but I also agree with @CaitMarae- I am going to miss the attention of being a bride, and flipping through wedding magazines…  My little sister caught the bouquet, so hopefully there will me more fun planning for her soon!
