Congratulations on your marriage!!! Looks like you had a great time. I’m sure that post-wedding let down is normal. I remember feeling that way after my firstt. Luckily, the holidays are coming and you’ll have plenty of planning to do as newlyweds for that! Hope the feeling goes away. I’d love to see pics when you get them!

I felt that way for a bit, but then I thought of how much I could help others in my shoes with things you only think about/know once you are on the other side.  Plus, there’s still so much inspiration that you could use for other parties!  I’ve already used to to plan an 80th birthday party for my grandma and I’m going to also use some ideas from here for a baby shower!

*hugs* we’re all here, and now that you’ve graduated to MARRIED (YAY!) you know so much having gone through it. It’s an excellent opportunity to help us out with things that we might not even think about! Congratulations!

please share your wisdom with the other brides…I’m sure they’d appreciate it!

plus, the wedding isn’t over!  You could go through the photos, scrapbook it, journal about it, do other preservation tasks…I think that could be fun!

otherwise, I’ve thrown myself into “nesting” and getting my body/brain ready for TTC….there’s always sometime fun to do!

maybe you could also offer to help other bees in your area, too?

I like the idea @cannotwait shared! Use the wedding memories and photos to scrapbook and get ideas on here ๐Ÿ™‚ I love to scrapbook and they make for wonderful albums and keepsakes!

I have to admit I’ve had little pangs of jealousy towards the people stillplanning as well.  It’s a cycle, and I got my chance!  But I do miss it a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚

You’re not alone.  You can now stay a part of the community and share everythihg you learned with those who haven’t had their wedding yet!  It’s a great thing to be a part of!

I suggest that you can start setting new plans for yourself, whether it’s personal or job-related. I personally feel that if I had more time, I would definitely get into album making… and I get excited just thinking about it but I just got too much on my plate right now. Hope you feel better soon.

I was married over a year ago and I still frequent Weddingbee.  Now that you’re on the other side, your experience and advice is all the more valuable.

Hit the boards and pass on all the wisdom you’ve gained!

If you spent a lot of time connecting with people planning the most fabulous day of your life (and it sounds like it was!) then of course it’s hard to come back.  it’s hard to skim by those Monique Lhullier bridesmaids dresses and not feel a pang of jealousy.  It’s only normal to feel a little sad to not be as connected and excited about making those big day decisions. But like the the hive has said, you have knowledge and stories to share.  You have us and we have lots of decisions and planning to do/make.  I’m still trying to unpack boxes and wondering when I stop updating my registry, when people got their photos and what was the most creative thing that someone did with them.

Pls know it’s normal but come back and visit often to the entire board.  I know there were a ton of newlyweds who were so helpful to me while I was planning.
