I’m not exactly sure how it happened but somehow it’s already November. Where the hell did this year go?! Considering we just wrapped up the wedding and Honeymoon festivities, I haven’t even thought about Christmas shopping. Normally I start around now but I have zero motivation to buy anyone anything. The thought of spending more money after just shelling out sooooo much isn’t appealing at all. My family always goes way overboard with Christmas so I’ve told them that we’re taking it easy this year. I’ve also told them that if I can’t buy it on Amazon then they don’t need it, lol.
Any other fall brides not really feeling Christmas?

Yeah, when I got married at the end of November, Christmas was the last thing on my mind. I think we just sent out christmas cards and got gifts for the kids in the family. We did spend $800 to travel home for our wedding so that was a big chunk of money plus the wedding costs. Yeah, I’m sure my family and friends understood why Christmas was so ‘light’ for us that year.

I remember feeling like I didn’t want to plan much… and I ended up giving my family their own family portraits for gifts (taken at the wedding) so I felt like my family gift giving was made MUCH easier!
It also made me feel less guilty for doing a budget Christmas… since every understood we just spent a grip of cash on the wedding!!

Yeah, we get married this Saturday and if Fiance hadn’t insisted a couple weeks ago to put in a layaway for our kids I’d have nothing done.
I have zero motivation for thanksgiving let alone xmas.

After my September wedding, I kept thinking it was spring and summer was just around the corner. I even told a co-worker that it was starting to look like summer. Completely embarrassing. It took about a month to snap out of :).

i actually feel the opposite. While I absolutely loved planning my wedding I was ready for it to be over, although I already miss planning it. I LOVE gift giving and Christmas so now I was excited to dedicate my time to that. I guess it’s my way of dealing with the post pardum depression after the wedding.
