Living with my parents and having my dad do the laundry and the cleaning lady cleaned the toilet LOL

In all seriousness I do miss buying magazines and looking a beautiful dresses and day dreaming about that being me. I am really sad that I will never be able to go dress shopping again and try on all those amazing gowns.

I miss dress shopping. In fact, I’m really tempted to make appointments under my married name and only wear my Ering. But I think Darling Husband would have a real problem with that, haha! I loved the VIP treatment everywhere I went because I was engaged. Granted, I only got the treatment from vendors who had dollar signs for eyes, but it was great while it lasted.

@moderndaisy: ditto! I loved being the “bride to be” and having everyone get so excited about the upcoming wedding. Now, I’m just…married, lol. Although being a newlywed is still pretty fun 🙂

I miss looking for vendors…I started to feel this way toward the end of wedding planning too, though. I loved the beginning, when I felt like all my options were still open and the wedding could go in a million different directions. I loved the way it DID turn out, but I miss that sense of fun, like “I could do anything!”.

Anyone else feel like more now than ever they want all their friends to get engaged or start having babies or something just so you have more parties to help plan and more big life changes to celebrate?

@PaperCrane: YES. I started researching photogs for a friend who just got engaged…even though she didn’t ask me to, and doesn’t actually know that I’ve done that. Embarassed I just miss looking through websites and picking out vendors!

I just miss the whole planning process! Planning my wedding was some of the most fun I’ve ever had, I just loved it!

But now im becoming really into decorating my house and watching decor shows, decor mags, and blogs. So basiclaly went from wedding planning to house decor!

i miss having a creative outlet! i had several small diy projects too (favors, favor tags, programs, escort cards, welcome letters, table numbers…) so i miss that creative part. planning was an excuse to go browsing/shopping online and in stores, and read blogs and magazines, and fantasize about putting it all together, which also used my creative side of the brain. now all of that would just be procrastinating (ie, i need to be studying now but i can’t help looking back at the bee!). i really really loved the planning process and i love how my wedding turned out…i can’t wait to get our video back so i can watch it all over again!

I miss the anticipation of the big day!  I loved finding new ideas and things to incorporate into our wedding, and dreaming of what it would be like.  My wedding was absolutely perfect and everything I wanted it to be, but I missing having something to look forward to.

Also, I am never leaving the wedding planning/Weddingbee-type websites.  I will stick around forever LOL.
