My wedding is over and I’ve started an etsy shop to continue making wedding things.  I don’t think I could have just stopped crafting cold-turkey the day after my wedding.  So the etsy shop helps me fuel my artistic side still.

Oh my gosh, I’m actually looking forward to this time.

First my Fiance and I will have our weekends back.  We have planned on starting to do weekend camping trips more often, or throwing our bikes in the back of the truck and going to a park and biking.  We also used to play tennis a lot before all this stuff!  I miss having weekends that we spend enjoying each other’s company!

As far as getting into wedding stuff, I’m def. going to do something wedding related after the wedding, but mostly because I think it’s lucrative!  The econ. is in the tank and look at everyone still planning weddings!  I don’t think enough people do things to help out budget brides.  I’m not sure exactly what I plan on doing, but I know I’m going to get into it somehow!!!

I never understand this sentiment. Most brides probably get a little nostalgic for their wedding, but being seriously lost/confused about life because you’re not planning a wedding anymore seems a bit extreme. I mean, before you started planning or even thinking about weddings on a regular basis, you were a complete person with interests, dreams, goals, friends, etc. After the wedding, you’ll just be that person again. I’m sure all of us have more going on in our lives than planning a wedding. 

I love wedding planning, and it’s definitely my main activity outside of work right now, but it’s not something that defines me or something I will miss much when I’m done. I have so many plans and projects I can’t wait to have that extra free time 🙂

@Future Mrs. Taylor – yep I sell embossed thank you cards and wedding accesories.  The card making gives me a chance to keep using all the gadgets I bought during wedding planning.

@Ella- I hope to go camping too now that the weather is getting nicer.  My husband and I got a ton of camping stuff as wedding presents.  We haven’t been able to use any of it yet.

I can’t wait until the wedding is over so that I can spend more time working on my website and other endeavors.

@FutureMrs.Taylor:  I’ve tried doing as much myself, and searching for the best deals possible.  There are some cases where I just paid more so that I wouldn’t have to worry about it:  Flowers, I could buy 1000 hydrangea and put them in vases, but I have to do this the night before?  Not worth it.  Chair covers:  These are HOW MUCH?  not necessary, I can buy them for cheaper, but I don’t want to have to go there the day of and set them up.  There has to be something to help people out who are looking for a good deal, and as a business person, still end up making a profit.  I dabble with invites, thank yous, etc… I love making jewelry, flower arrangements.. there has to be something there!  So that’s what I’m working on!  It is too bad you are in KS, my bridesmaid is in KS too!  But I don’t see us relocating any time soon!  But if we both start companies, maybe we can chat about things going on!

@amariem25I’ve actually NEVER CAMPED.  My fiance loves it, and I feel bad that I’ve never really participated in this with him.  I’m a huge fan of indoor plumbing, and not a huge fan of bugs, but I think that I can suck that up for a weekend every other month to do something that he enjoys…  We asked for some camping gear, but didn’t recieve any of it.. my shower was with my family, and seeing as how I was never taken camping as a kid, it makes sense that they wouldn’t buy that sort of stuff for me either!!!

@hallhubbell – who says you have to leave Weddingbee?  There are plenty of newlyweds here still!

I know that wedding planning has giving me a fun relaxation time after work and so after the wedding I plan on learning to knit or make quilts!

I’ll most definitely still be on WB that’s for sure. I’m not a fan of the planning myself. I don’t really enjoy the process – I’ll never be an event planner. I can’t wait to unpack our wedding gifts & put them to good use (yeah, I’m talkin’ to you Kitchenaid mixer & Margaritaville blender).

I’m also looking forward to having our weekends back and just enjoying other people’s weddings instead of taking notes all the time. Friends of ours are getting married a month after us and we’re so excited for their wedding — cuz we don’t have to DO anything!! HAH!

@amariem24 – I think I will stay around for a while, but I’m going to have to wean myself off eventually. I’m mildly addicted! It can’t be healthy!
