I always envisioned how it would be to plan my wedding. I haven’t enjoyed the planning in nearly the way I thought I would. Some bits I loved, some I suprisingly lothed. Now the wedding is literally next week I finally feel like I can enjoy this for what it was all about, marrying the man I adore.
Knowing getting pregnant is up next (not immediately) but soon enough, I wonder if my experience of trying to get pregnant and pregancy will be entirely different from how I imagine it to be. I really hope not as I always thought I’d really enjoy it and it scares me a little that I might not!

I loved planning my wedding, but I think going TTC, getting pregnant and having babies will be much more exciting!
That said, a lot of the Bees here can tell you that TTC is not always fun.

I never really dreamed about planning a wedding and I kept it simple and did just as much as I had to in order to get what I wanted. It wasnt bad or great. TTC so far is sucking. I’m totally impatient and not getting what I want right away and having it totally out of my control is fustrating. I’m sure the pregancy wont actually be all that great either, but I just think that so I dont set myself up to think it’ll be great and actually turn out miserable.

I didn’t really love or hate planning a wedding. I did find it stressful and, while there were fun aspects, I was certainly ready for it to be over with.
I’m not TTC yet but I suspect I will enjoy being pregnant and preparing to welcome a son or daughter in mine and DH’s life will be much more enjoyable than planning a wedding. There are certainly stresses that come along with it but it is so life-changing and something I’ve wanted for my entire life so I think the excitement will out-weigh the stress.

Both were stressful and not as fun as I thought it would be, but being pregnant has been way better, more exciting and meaningful. Even when we were engaged, we talked about our future children way more than we talked about our wedding.
Before our wedding, I was excited to be married to my husband but I knew it wouldn’t really change anything. We were already sharing a life and totally committed to each other, the wedding was just a way to show that to our family and friends. The wedding itself was really simple and not a big deal to me. Pregnancy hasn’t been all glowy and joyful, and preparing for a baby is way more work than I ever imagined, but there is so much more to look forward to. I can’t wait to meet our daughter and get to know her personality and see how she resembles each of us.

I love planning our wedding, but find it tough sometimes to get a straight answer out of FH about final decisions. So far it’s coming together great with just under 11 months to go but I imagine I’ll be stressed to the max once the day gets closer (I’m a leave things to the last minute person…. Trying my hardest to avoid that in regards to the wedding!). As for TTC, well I’m sure FH will be MUCH more enthusiastic about that! I suspect that I will enjoy it just as much as planning our wedding, and hopefully I won’t stress so much!
