Still trying to get back to normal or find the new normal. I moved into his place a week before the wedding, we are still sorting out two condo worth of stuff. I still working on Thank you notes. We are in the process of picking out pictures since we meet with our photographers on Sunday to choose our album. I also need to get songs to the videographer. Sometimes I think left will never slow down. I also have moments of feeling like I’ve lost myself in this process. Name change is also slow going and a royal pain in the behind.

I found that things were even MORE busy right after we wedding. There was so much that we put off that needed to be done

And in terms of wedding stuff….writting thank yous…etc

It took 3-4 months to really wind down. We were still very much dealing with aftermath—things we put off, getting wedding related things wrapped up, and just dealing with clutter (both mental and physical) for many months after the wedding.

It’s nice to know that I’m not the only one. I’m starting to feel bad about the Thank yous, however they overwhelm me.

It will definitely take a few months. We didn’t live together before we were married, so it was a whole new adventure! We also had put things off and had to sort through gifts and thank you notes. Then it was suddenly Christmas, so it will definitely take some time until you both get into a set routine with each other.

@kayakgirl73: We found that a bottle of wine made the thank you note writing process MUCH easier πŸ˜‰  You’ll feel so good when you have them off your plate!

Yeah, we’re still dealing with wedding related stuff.  We have thank yous to finish, I have curtains to sew (they were put off until after the wedding), same for painting the condo, also we are buying corals for a fish tank this weekend that was put off after the wedding, and we still have to choose which pictures we want to buy.

It’s been almost 6 months and apart from sorting through the wedding pictures, I think we’re back to normal.  We have a few wedding related items to sell or get rid of, but nothing crazy.  Right now we’re working on our house which takes up most of our time.

We were back to normal pretty quickly.  Most likely since we had to move in a month and that threw the wedding from our mind at high speed.

Picking out the pictures is taking longer than I thought. Ack. I had issues with not getting the photos that I wanted but there are still a lot of nice pictures. Unfortunately, we do not have a good formal full length of the two of of us. We also have very few pictures of the entire wedding party and many of those one person or other has a goofy look or their eyes are closed. Its hard to have to choose to use a not great picture because that’s the only pic you have of what’s seams like something you have to have a pic of, which leads to leaving other good pics out. UGh.

I’m so itching to get those thank you’s done! I’m overwhelmed trying to be a wife and work right now. I feel like i’m failing because i still haven’t unpacked my bag from our honeymoon and it’s been a week! So not enough time after work. I cooked one actual meal– we went out to eat 2x. I can’t wait for the return to normal– or normal with a husband. πŸ™‚ I feel like it might take a month or 2!
