- Wedding: June 2008 - Winery in the Gold Country
Hi Bees! I know there are lots of newlyweds (and some old-lyweds) still out there on WB! Say hello, how long you got married, and what you and your husband are doing now! What’s the biggest thing that’s changed since you got married?
Mr. Peng and I have been married for a year! The biggest change has definitely been career-wise for us. Mr. Peng now runs his own Physical Therapy clinic, and I now work full time (and then some 😉 ) for Weddingbee! Being married is great because we can focus all our energy (and money) on our house and no longer on stuff for the weddding 🙂 I love being married! It feels great to be truly comfortable in my situation for the moment (since we both aren’t looking to have kids in the near future). I feel like in the last 10 years, I’ve always wanted the next step… you know what I mean? Be my boyfriend… move in with me… lets buy a house… lets get engaged… lets get married…
There’s no real big "next" right now! It feels great to just stew in the "now" 🙂
What about you?

Oh I am still hanging around…at least for the next few days 🙂 Mr Corn and I were married in September 2007, almost two years ago. I mainly hang out here because although I am no longer wedding obsessed, I do own a wedding related business so I like to keep in touch with the trends. Our lives haven’t really changed that much…but they are about to. Our first child is due in a week!! My guess is while I will still visit the site for inspiration, my role here will be diminishing quikly as my role as mother picks up!

We got married a little over a year ago and a lot has changed in our lives. In the course of a year we got married, moved, I graduated college, started grad school, left grad school, got a new job, and had our dog nearly die. Now that I am staying busy with work, I have stepped away a bit from wedding stuff, my work requires some event planning (for a nonprofit), so I am getting my fix! We are ready for kids, but I need to drop a few pounds first.

- Wedding: June 2008 - St. Catherine of Genoa, Jin Asian Cuisine Restaurant
hmm… married for 1 year, and aside from living in our own place and paying mortgage instead of rent, the only other change is that I graduated from grad school! Now with no wedding and no school, I actually have (or at least should have) some free time!
Mr T and I are really enjoying living in the "now" too!

We got married in Oct 2007, reception in Dec 2007. Since then, we sold DH’s condo, rented out my condo, bought a house, and gave birth to our first child 2 weeks ago. DH also changed jobs last year. It’s been an amazing journey together and we are looking forward to all the years to come. I love checking weddingbee for the wonderful ideas – I plan on throwing quite a few bridal and baby showers in the years to come!

I’ve been married a year.
Biggest change is that my husband and I now reside in separate states — he moved for his residency, and I still have ~2 years left for my Ph.D. Boo.
Next big step will be moving BACK in with each other and readjusting to living together again. And, in order to live together, I’ll have to get a post-doc in Philly and move there, so that will be another big adjustment, on top of actually seeing each other again!

Married for two years now! (I know, what am I doing here? I just rove you guys too much.)
We’ve… moved apartments twice and finally bought our own place late last year. Both of us have also been moving forward in our careers (including a career switch for Mr. P) and celebrated a bunch of birthdays. Now that I think about blogging for Weddingbee as a 22 year old I’m sort of amazed. Onwards to the next "step!" 😉

@Corn — I’ve loved having you around the hive, and will miss you when you go. But I am so looking forward to "meeting" your little kernel! Congrats! I didn’t know your due date was so soon!
P.S. I am so excited to chime in on this board in one week!!!

Well, don’t make me cry!! I won’t be too far away, I could never quit you 😉

Well, we’ve been married a little over 6 months. We’re living in the same town we got married in, treading water career-wise. 🙂 I’m a long-term temp and he’s a security guard, and we work opposite shifts for beans. We have a little house that we rent which is basically made of paper and roaches, but it’s kind of cute (although far too messy!). Highlights since the wedding have been:
1. Cross country trip with Mr. December and his sister to see his brother’s bootcamp graduation, and consequent conception of our baby on trip due to poor planning skills.
2. Discovering the presence of said baby, quickly followed by rejection letter from Mr. December’s grad school of choice.
3. Falling asleep with the stove on and waking up to a flaming bamboo steamer which ended up destroying our stove and charring the nearby cabinets. Oh, and the death of an All-Clad copper core pot… holy crap I feel guilty for that.
4. Scraping up money to fly home for my best friend’s wedding in May, the first time I’d been home since last August… I’d never been gone that long!
5. Continuing discussions about moving in with the in-laws and going to graduate school in Tampa.. need to make that decision soon!
So our biggest things have definitely been the change of direction and delay in terms of graduate school for Mr. December, and the baby meaning a pretty major career delay for me — I don’t think I can make enough in this economy to justify child care, so we’ll be playing it by ear with me as a SAHM/WAHM.
This sounds so sucky all written out like this, but I swear, it’s been the best 6 months of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The other day I freaked poor Mr. December out because I just started crying suddenly.. he held me and asked why, and I told him it was just that I loved him so much and I’m so happy that no matter what we’re going through we’re doing it together. Sappy but true!

I have been married for two months! The best part of being married, so far, is not having to worry/argue about the wedding and going back to just being together. I didn’t realize the wedding was putting so much stress on me until after it was over! The other best part is all we have to look forward to – buying our first house soon, having a baby….and the next 60 years!

- Wedding: June 2008 - Imperia Hotel (modern chic hotel)
Lots have changed since the wedding.
I changed job and love my new position as a graphic designer. I get to do lots of creative work and love the people I work with. It has defintely shown in my mood.
Mr.Flamingo finished school (after 3 years) and started working as a nurse.
We also purchased our first home and moving in September.
Lots has changed… and its all very exciting.
We want kids, but right now our baby is our new home.

We’ve been married about 7 months. In those seven months, we’ve gotten more used to living together (we didn’t move in together until about 2 months before the wedding) and we’ve just been enjoying living in chicago and having fun together! We’re not going to buy a house or have kids in the next few years, but I’m happy with that since it lets us enjoy being young and free for a few years more. 🙂 I love being married and truly think it’s the happiest I’ve ever been! I just feel peaceful and secure and I’m so happy I found a good man. 🙂

we’ve been married for almost 2 months! they’ve been a lot of changes in our lives, since we’re adjusting on living together (we didn’t before the wedding), i’m actually learning to cook (while being single and living alone for 6 years, i only cooked like twice a month!), and thank God we’re paying our wedding debts really fast and thinking on buying our first place next year!

We ‘ve been married for a year and a couple of months. Since the wedding, we had some pretty big changes: my husband finished Grad School and we moved from LA to NYC (we actually drove, taking our time to visit a bunch of National Parks etc. It was awesome)… So we had plenty of exciting things to think about and continue planning for in the first few months after the Wedding… and a gradual transition into lviging the "now".
One cute thing that changed was that in the begining we would always gillge when saying "wife" and "husband" and now it feels totally normal.
I love being married to my lovely husband and the first year has gone by so quickly!
