@kris325:  That feeling hit Darling Husband before it hit me.  We were in the middle of Thailand on our honeymoon when Darling Husband suddenly blurted out “I miss our wedding!” Haha i thought that was pretty cute.  I was so exhausted from all of the planning that it took me a little longer, but it did eventually hit me after we got home from our honeymoon.  Looking at all the FB photos friends/family posted from our wedding, and then getting our photos from our photographers really helped a lot in the interim.  Then after that? I became even worse of a WBholic, and am now living vicariously through everyone planning here!

Happy almost wedding day! πŸ™‚

@kris325:  How long was your engagement? I had a 17 month engagement and I can’t WAIT to be married- I loved wedding planning at the beginning but after 17 months I am beyond done. So so done!

we have been engaged for 2 years now, and the wedding isn’t for another year and 2 months, so I can’t wait to be out of the engagement stage !!! I like wedding planning, but I’m over it now, now I just want to start house planning and baby planning !!! (: AND finally being about to call Fiance my HUSBAND, that’s going to be my favorite part of getting married. (:

I totally missed our engagement/wedding once it was over. And I missed it for a while. Especially because we don’t have plans to TTC anytime soon (and we’ve been married for two years!) so I didn’t have another “project” to divert my attention to. But even still, the feeling fades, I promise!

Whilst at the moment I just cant wait for time to fly I know when it’s all over I’m not going to know what to do with myself! Decorating and having babies probably (or dogs anyway, children scare me)

I love a project and I’ve thrown myself into DIYing, the only bit I’m dreading is doing the day invites and the Orders of service because of the repetition. (so I’m doing odds and ends so I don’t have to do it all at once!)

@kris325:  Agreed!

Planning this wedding is so stressful and so expensive… but I was a psych student, I know well that anticipation of something awesome can be as good as the event itself as far as overall pleasure goes. Looking forward to something is really super excellent for your mental health. πŸ™‚ A year-long engagement is a lot of time to get those good anticipation feels in high gear. Combine that with the fact that I have an excuse to be doing a lot of online shopping which I loooooooooove… engagement is fun and I’ll be sad and broke when it’s over. πŸ™

I’m so not gonna stop pinning and stuff though… maybe I’ll be able to help people on here. And hey… there’s always the vow renewal… ;D

I’ve been married almost 10 months and I really miss it. It was so much fun to hang out with my mom and plan and decide on what decorations and songs would b best. I REALLY miss the anticipation of it the most. The weeks and months leading up to my wedding were so much fun! And because we arent planning on having children for a few more years yet, I have nothing to focus on haha. So I have a younger sister whos boyfriend is almost ready to propose and a ton of cousins engaged so I talk wedding talk with them and it makes the pang of not being engaged anymore a bit easier to bear! I love being married and all, but I miss the excitement of my upcoming wedding.
