Why not just go off after the wedding? You don’t mention any reason you are in a rush to get pregnant, so why not stay on it until after the honeymoon and then stop? My doctor said to go off at least a cycle before TTC (which of course could be longer than a month), I have also heard 3 cycles, so I’m over shooting and planning to go off about 6 months before. At 28 it doesn’t sound like there is a big rush. 

I’d be nervous to make that big of a change right before the wedding, especially since it’s working fine for you. I was even able to shift my period back so I wouldn’t have it at the wedding or honeymoon.

stay on it until after the wedding. i just stopped taking bcp and had some slight skin issues. not really on my face, but more on my body (which is strange for me). nothing terrible but not something I would want to be dealing with or trying to cover up on my wedding day.

Everyone’s body adjusts differently to the lack of hormones, but I would be a little too worried about it to make the switch before hand!

My period didn’t start until after 47 days from taking my last pill. I was on BCP as long as you were. My cramps were something horrendus too – I would wait until after if it was me. Couldn’t imagine dealing with wedding planning and that at the same time.
