What am I going to do when I don’t have to wedding plan anymore??
Honestly, it’s a depressing thought.
I have put in so much time… energy… effort.
For one day of something we’ll never forget.
But still, now, I find myself asking “What’s next?”
Anyone else feeling the same?

actually I feel like I’ve lost my identity in the planning process as well. I constantly ask myself “…wow..what did I do before wedding planning?” XD It’s such a huge part of your life for like a year! kinda hard to get over..

@MadameLady: Yeah, it is…
I keep looking at all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the last year and a half and I’m just like “this is my life, this is my hobby”…

I know… Fiance asked me recently what I’m going to do with my time after the wedding and I didn’t have an answer!
By The Way I love that little picture, so cute!

I’ve actually contemplated taking up scrapbooking to keep myself busy. First project? Wedding scrap books of course.

@deebstation: Thank you!!
@Encore: Oooh, good call! My mom is actually the “queen bee” of a scrapbooking club, and maybe it’s time for me to join 🙂
A wedding scrapbook sounds perfect!!

Its definitely a weird weird feeling. It wasnt even 3 weeks ago that I got married and it feels like forever ago, but at the same time my memories from that day are so clear. I have been looking at pictures non stop (I got my pro pics back 4 days after our wedding) and I have also been writing my memories down….the more I write the more I remember and the feelings of that day come back. Its weird to be done with everything and have left over crap, but it is also very nice. There is something so comforting about being married and it happened really quickly. Now we are moving onto other things. Painting our house, redecorating, planning our meals, taking the dog on walks, writing thank you cards, deciding on moving to a new city, planning upcoming trips….we are still busy! But there isnt an impending deadline of the wedding anymore!
My biggest advice is to enjoy EVERY moment and just take it all in as a part of the process. Even if something goes wrong or not to your expectations or you become stressed or emotional, just take it all in and let it happen. Try to remember the day as it is happening and take mental pictures of what is going on. Be present in the moment as much as possible.
I read an excerpt from The Conscious Bride the day before my wedding and it really helped a lot! Here it is – http://www.consciousweddings.com/relaxSpace/CW_weddingMeditation.html
It may seem silly, but it helped me a LOT and I wasnt nervous ONE BIT on the day of my wedding and normally I am a very anxious person!!!
