So I was talking to my friend who got married less than a year ago. She told me she really misses planning her wedding and is really sad. In fact, she even said she still looks at wedding stuff online and misses the emails from the vendors and anticipation of the big day. I’m kinda surprised because ALL my married friends are just glad it’s done and over with and they don’t talk about it anymore unless someone asks. They said they got tired of dealing with the vendors, spending money left and right, and just basically stress from everything/everyone. My friend got engaged Nov 2011 so she had a good 3 years of dealing with this. I’m afraid this might happen to me. Any thoughts from married bees out there?

Sometimes I miss the excitement of planning, but for the most part I’m glad it’s over. Now I look forward to planning vacations instead!

I was not at all into “planning,” so I don’t miss it at all.

Hell no. I was lucky I even made it down the planned aisle. There were several times that I broke down and begged my husband to elope. We’ve both said we’re never doing that again.

No ma’am! DH thought I would miss all of the planning and I think it was a fantastic day, but good grief I am so glad that it’s over!

God no! I so glad it’s over, wedding planning is so not for me.

I really enjoyed it but I can’t say that I actually miss it, because there were frustations too so I guess I don’t miss that (lol). Interesting question, though.

I’m glad it’s all just a fond memory now. There is so much more to look forward to in life.

If anyone says the letters “RSVP” to me, my right eye starts to twitch.

I’d love to plan it all over simply because things could be changed and other ideas tried out. There is so much more info online these days than there was when I was planning (2002/2003) that I see more options and ideas and with the advent of Pinterest… ohfg. Pinterest would have been such a help.
Ultimately, you don’t really 100% know what the wedding day will be like until it happens. I felt and feel that my wedding went well, however – it was not as well planned as it should have been and having been to other weddings I have seen ways it could have been tweaked or made easier/better. And who doesn’t love to oogle wedding dresses and engagement rings…

Nope. I seem to have time to do other things now! I’m planning other things too- a couple of vacations and some little parties and things so it’s actually nice to be able to do that.

I do miss it a bit. I am a huge planner, and nothing has been more fun planning wise than planning the best day of our lives! I just really enjoyed it. Stressful here and there, but overall everything went so smoothly that it was just a good time. I spent so much time on it every day, especially in the months leading up to our day, that now I have to figure out what to replace it with. We really had the perfect day, though, so I just remind myself that all of that planning was completely worth it! Now I just need to find a new hobby – currently it’s been watching Friends from the beginning on Netflix, haha.

I definitely don’t miss it but I am super proud I pulled it off with everything going on time, smoothly and looking beautiful and I did it almost 100% on my own.
It took up so much of my time and lots of travelling because it was in a city 4 hours away from where I live.
I kind of enjoyed all the different crafts though and it’s made me want to do some more different crafty things and now I actually have time to do them! So I can say I’m happy it’s done and have more time to do different things, but don’t regret putting so much time into it.
edit: I have more time to post on weddingbee too now lol even though my wedding is done..
