    I was (and still am) glad to have my life back.  Wedding planning was too stressful and consuming for me.  I worried about a lot of details even though I found many of them to be extraneous and silly.  I’m glad that I can now devote my time and my brain to more substantive topics.

    I’m not married yet (4 months to go!!), but I am a bit worried about this. I am a grad student and spend most of my time writing academic papers. I find wedding planning to be an amazing creative outlet, and wonder where I will direct that energy after the day. You’d think the school work would be enough, but I get bored really easily, haha.

    I am trying to prepare myself to be happy, if a bit nostalgic for the anticipation of the wedding, and hope that I will get used to “normal life” again in time. I’ll probably need to find a new creative hobby too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I feel your pain. I haven’t even had my wedding yet and already know I will be that way! lol I planned a wedding for 150 people in 2 months. People say that can’t be done but I live for love, weddings, details and planning! Start thinking about an anniversary celebration or vow renewal in a couple years… maybe that will help!

    I was worried about that before the wedding, seeing as its soooo much for just one day, but I felt fine.  I used to think that I should be planning to open a restuarant or something, something where my carefully planned decor wouldn’t come down a few hours after I put it up, etc. etc.  Everything went really well on our wedding day, so I thought it was all worth it.  I did learn that I’m more creative and crafty then I’d ever thought, so now I’d like to find a new creative outlet ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m thinking knitting, but I’ve yet to take the steps to learn.

    @MissAusten:  I’m the same way!! I’m finishing my PhD in a few months and will be in a postdoc position when we get married. I feel like everything will go back to “normal” and be boring haha! I’m gonna have to either sign up for another marathon or convince my Fiance we’re ready to start TTC!! Tongue Out

    I don’t miss the planning, but it was SO much fun and the BEST day of my life. I let it go by was too quickly.

    @Wellington Bride:  Oh I cant wait for our wedding day to get here (and then pass.) I mean, I’m so excited…but our ~17 month engagement is wearing on me. After the wedding, I plan to slowly start upgrading things in our apartment that werent gifted to us from the registry. We also want to move to a place that is more suited for us. I want to learn to cook better, work on my Spanish, start working out much more and do that half marathon I’ve always wanted to do.

    I’m also beyond excited to get our wedding photos back in June. I cant wait to put together our album, make prints and see how they all turned out.

    Yes, I definitely did!  I can’t believe it’s almost a year for me!  I really do miss all of the craziness of it.

    Honestly, I’m going to feel the same way when our wedding is over, and I was never one of those people who cared about getting married. 

    I have really enJoyed all the planning, and shopping and organizing little details. And spending lots of time with my closest girls. I know it’s only one day, but I’m really looking forward to it..I plan on making sone really good memories! 

    We are going on our honeymoon immediately after our wedding, so I have that to look forward to too, but then after that it’ll be a big crash for me. Have to get back to reality,which I’m sure wOnt be fun.

    The only good thing is that we we finally be able to get back to our regular hobbies which we’ve been too busy for in the last couple of months. (I make/restore furniture so I have a few projects lined up for me after tHe wedding.

    If you really like planning out little details you could always start looking into buying a house. It’s a huge investment that requires a lot of research (especially if you want children in the near future) and planning.
