    I’m still totally relieved to be done!  That doesn’t mean I don’t want to talk weddings (why else would I be here), but it is such a relief to not have to care so much anymore!

    I think I initially felt a little strange about having the whole process be over.  After spending so much time preparing for the wedding, it was kind of sad that it was all done.  However, that feeling only lasted a little while…after a couple of weeks, I was just glad that I could relax and enjoy my summer.

    Totally glad to be done with MY OWN but perfectly happy to help everyone else. I love parties in general so uh, anytime I get to see cute crafty ideas or anything else I’m all over it

    At first I felt a little out to sea after the whole thing was over.  I even wrote a thread about it, because I wasn’t sure if what I was feeling was PWB.  I still don’t know if it was or not, but I know that whatever it was, it’s behind me now.

    There are so many new things to focus on and look ahead to as a couple, that planning a wedding has been put aside for planning a life ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was kind of worried about this, but I think with us both being encores and our wedding in October-right after our wedding and we come back from our honeymoon-Hallloween is right after, then Thanksgiving and then Christmas-all as newlyweds and all as a new family with 6 year old twins. I’m hoping the “busyness” of the holiday season will keep me from getting PWB.

    I’m totally relieved to be done, but I also wish that I could remember more of the day better.  I am also having trouble figuring out what to do with all my extra time (ha ha), guess I just have to keep stalking weddingbee a while longer. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am in the minority… I wish I was still planning. I still ask my husband a few times a week- jokingly, “so when can we have our next wedding?!” In every scenario I tell him that I want another wedding so I can do this and that which I couldn’t do in our wedding or didn’t because I chose another style, blah blah, and tell him it can just be us with no guests ๐Ÿ™‚

    It hasn’t been a month yet (but will be in 2 days) but I am still having a bit of withdrawal- probably why I am still visiting wedding blogs and going to Weddingbee numerous times a day! There were several things I didn’t get to at the last minute, so I still feel regret with that, but oh well. We still had one helluva wedding… many people said it was the best ever and they had a blast- which put me up in the clouds, of course.

    But I can’t help but wonder if maybe I belong somewhere in this industry. Amongst the stress of doing everything myself, even to the 17 centerpieces (thank God for FiftyFlowers.com!), I have never had so much fun working on one thing in my entire life or being so motivated for the one occasion. Who knows…

    It doesn’t help that we are in the process of buying our first house so we just went back to everyday life right away. Once we find the house- we are getting closer!- I think it will take my mind away, or at least re-focus it for a while. Right now we are living in a small duplex, which we own, but we have outgrown it and a lot of of our leftover wedding things are still out on display because we don’t have anywhere else to put them for now. So it is a constant reminder…

    I’m not married yet but I know i will be depressed afterwards. I have been looking forward to this day pretty much as long as I can remember. And it is going to hit me hard afterwards. Very hard. But since I recognized that I have been preparing myself. First I am trying to make sure the honeymoon is incredible so that I am not depressed immediately after. And I am also trying to think up other projects for after the honeymoon. I am collecting mementos from the planning process in order to make a scrapbook. I figure if I have something to do there will be less time to think.
