I’m sure that I wuill be the same, I have already thought about how I will feel in a years time.
Now u can concentrate on other things, decorating…..babies…..fitness and Health….maybe set a goal like ‘I’m going to run a marathon in a year or I am going to make my house look like something out of H&G or I am going to satrt saving so I can have an awesome overseas vacation.
Essentially what I am sugesting is to set yourself a new goal, objective, aim.

While I was planning, I was a huge lurker on the boards, and got plenty of great ideas…now that I’m married, I want to give back to WB by posting with this new point of view. It’s helping to wean me off weddings without going cold turkey.

Oh Dereksbride- I hear you!!! Don’t worry – you have sooo much fun wedding stuff ahead- seeing wedding videos, picking album pictures, opening and using gifts, hanging pictures on the wall… it goes on for a quite a while. If you’re really bumming, maybe you could do a post-wedding photo shoot? A trash the dress or just a bridal portrait, or city pictures? And it’s still tons of fun to come back on weddingbee and give advice to other brides!

@dereksbride2be – Referring to your earlier post, joking about a 1 year anniversary vow renewal: friends of ours are going to be married one year and plan to renew their vows on their 1 year anniversary…and every year after! My husband thinks this is absurd. I just don’t know what to think…I guess, to each his own!

You should become a wedding planner and plan, plan, plan all the time! On a more serious note though, I’ve heard other brides say similar things to what you did after their weddings and I am sure I’ll feel a bit of that as well. Don’t worry, you’ll move past it and remember your day fondly. There will be other life events in your life to be excited about, too!

I’m sure I will feel the same way you do once I’m married, but I can pretty much say with total confidence that all the engaged bees are dying to be on your end of things!!! 🙂

Ah that feeling goes away. I was here every day after the wedding too. Now I just pop in every now and then!

I changed career paths, maybe a bit drastic, but I feel like if I didn’t want to go back to before the wedding-planning/engagement time, I should focus on doing something other than what I was doing before … new name, new me, new profession, and the one I now feel certain I was meant to do all along! Newho, in your case, you might be able to get away with just a new hobby, hehe 🙂
