I’m not over mine yet, so I’m looking forward to hearing what others say!

I got over ours the second we left on our honeymoon. So it took me just over a week.

The wedding was great, but the planning experience was long and gruelling and I was just so darn happy to finally be married to Darling Husband that I was able to let anything wedding-related go fairly easily once we were bound for the Caribbean.

Our honeymoon was also three weeks long, so I didn’t even feel any residual longing to relive our wedding day when we got back.

I’d say after about a month I “got over it.” Because we had a Destination Wedding everyone wanted to hear about the wedding once we returned. That kept it in the forefront of my mind.

After about a month everyone knew about it so I didn’t think about the wedding quite as much.

I was over mine that night. LOL. I think its just different for some people. I was so glad everything was over and we were married! I still look back on it but I’m not nearly as into weddings as I thought I was.

I love love loved our wedding and had the best time ever.  We both thought about it a lot and talked about it a lot afterwards (though i did not miss the stress).  We got married mid-October and I think my wedding glow dimmed a bit after the holidays that year (about 3 months…?)  I think part of it was that friends and family talked about it a lot too!

With fall around the corner I’m already getting nostalgic!!

I was over it after our mini-moon, but I didn’t push it completely out of my mind until the thank you notes were all done Smile

But, we also had a lot of other things going on that took precedence once the wedding was over (honeymoon, looking for a new job, renovating the house, big vacation, etc.)

I can say it probably lasted 2-3 months.

I am pretty much over my wedding.  I think a lot of it has to do with getting ready for the baby in Nov, so that helps and keeps my mind occupied

I wasn’t thinking about it constantly or anything, but then we got the photos from our photographer, and I’ve been working on albums this week, so I’m obsessed all over again.  It ebbs and flows I think.  Every time planning brides talk about what they’re doing, I find it really hard to not jump in with stories from my wedding.

I was obsessed with our wedding leading up to it and it caused me so much stress! As soon as the wedding was over I felt this huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I was soo glad it was done! However, I do miss the planning. I look at the wedding related boards and am a little bummed that I can’t share in the excitement of searching out the best whatever for a wedding.

For me, I really got over it when I found something new to obsess about lol. We’re getting a puppy in about a week and I can focus my attention on that for now, so that accepting the wedding is over will be easier. Until we get our video back and I get to relive it all of course lol.

I think I was over it pretty much as soon as it was over!  DH and I didn’t really care that much about the wedding, we just were excited to actually get married already!  The wedding was wonderful – everything was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out, but we were so happy when all the wedding craziness was over and we could get started on our normal, happy, married life together.   We’re just finishing up the thank you notes now and can’t wait to get rid of them as that is the last wedding thing hanging over our heads.  

Funny, I thought I would miss it a bit more but I honestly don’t.  I’m glad it’s over and I don’t ever want to go through anything like that again.  I know, I’m a weirdo.  Maybe when we get our professional pictures back it will bring back a little twinge of longing for the wedding again but I sincerely doubt it.  Maybe it’s because we never really cared that much about the actual wedding but we rarely talk about and I know I rarely think about it.  I’m just so happy about the marriage and the wedding was really only a day for us.
