@Baileyh: I don’t think it’s crazy at all! Looking back there was so many pictures I didn’t get that I really wanted, one with my mom, one with my grandparents, a 3 generation picture and so on… SO if I were you I would do that in a heartbeat 🙂 I’m slowly leaning it’s a new beginning, it’s definitely not over. Good Luck!

I’m the opposite. I’m so excited to have my LIFE back! 🙂 I went shopping today and it wasn’t for wedding stuff. Yea!!
It still seems a bit unreal, being married – and I get how you feel like SOMETHING should feel different, but I think that will come with time.
I do miss dreaming up little projects but I don’t miss the stress and the deadlines – now if I come up with a cute little craft I’m not under pressure to finish it in a certain amount of time.
Plus I’m super excited about creating our photobook. I can’t wait to get some pictures so that I can start editing and putting it all together.

@clarebee and @linds1769 Thanks ladies!!
@clarebee The wedding buisness is going well i guess!! *laugh* I think it takes some time but i have two weddings..one next week and one in December!! so it will be fun! and yes you are right…after our honeymoon which is next July we are going to start trying so that is exciting.
To be honest i think i just miss “projects” you know…always having “seomthing” to do. I actually just got a pettern to make covers for my cushions on the couch so i have a little project *laugh*
I think things will settle down soon.
@linds1769 I contact the photographer today and asked if he could just take some casual pics of my husband and i, in the grass, out in the woods etc….so I will see what he says. If he does it for free I will say yes…*laugh* (I got a ton of clients for him so i might be able to pull this as a favour!!)

@Sunshine23:You made some GREAT points! I really don’t miss the nights I stayed up til 2am working on DIY projects lol And I haven’t had the opportunity as of yet, to go shopping for myself or my home but I’m thinking a shopping date is much needed for this weekend 😉 And in time i’m sure things will fall into place with the whole “I’m married” “I’m an actual wife now” types of feelings. THANK YOU for helping me realize these things!

I’m still COMPLETELY bummed about the wedding day being over actually 🙁 I got depressed after the wedding. I wasn’t upset the week after or anything, because we still had our honeymoon BUT once life went on and we went back to work and everything was the same as it was BEFORE we got married, except there was no planning, I got reallyyyy upset. I even created a few posts about it on here!!
We bought a house, and now I’m pouring almost everything I have (feelings, money, and such) into our house. We just planted a bunch of flowers in our flower bed (YAY!) so that made me happy 🙂 & my good friend actually just got engaged so I’m really excited to start helping her plan!!
The advice the ladies on here gave me is to find something else to do. Like buy a house, which we did! And other things like reading, finding a hobby, and sometime soon focus on having kids!
But I totally and completely understand where you’re coming from.

I was so relieved. Loved the weddings (we had two of them), loved the honeymoons, but was so glad we could go back to normalcy again!

@Lees4308: Thank you so so so much for your input! It’s nice to know i can relate to someone. We won’t be going on our honeymoon until December but that gives us time to have something to look forward to. We’re doing ALOT of renovations to our house so I think I’ll do the same as you and just pour my heart into it. I’m the type of girl that has to have something to do, and plan, and focus on until it’s absolutely perfect. I also have a friend, she was actually my Maid/Matron of Honor thats getting married next year so extremely excited to help her as much as possible!

Ugh, not at ALL missing the wedding stuff. I really hated how everyone asked me about wedding stuff and didn’t ask anything about, you know, the other 50 parts of my life. I’m glad we’re married, and our wedding was unreal gorgeous and the best wedding I’d ever been to and I’m SO thankful my parents were generous enough to pay for the whole freakin’ thing but now we’re married, and we’ve moved 800 miles away, he’s started Ivy League graduate degree and a part time job (I’m still looking) and… well, life moves on and it’s not always a party. Of course, I didn’t want the wedding to begin with so… ha!

I definitely went through a period of withdrawal, which was really surprising for me because I didn’t really get into planning the way a lot of people do. I think part of it was the awesome high you are on the few weeks before the wedding. Everybody is excited for you and you get the special bridal treatment. It was just kind of hard to come down from that and go about my routine. We had a honeymoon, so that helped, but I definitely slid into a funk afterward. The good thing is, a few months later that is gone. I’m so, so happy I have my life back, and I’m loving having a husband! Although things aren’t any different day to day, it’s still pretty exciting to think I have a husband. 🙂
