Great! Then you can be my wedding planner!!!


I have 9 months to go and I’m so burned out on it after planning a previous wedding that resulted in a broken engagement. All I’ve done so far is book my photographer. *sigh* Can’t I just wave a magic wand and have it all done?

LOL there needs to be a wedding "Big Sister" program where all the wifies suffering from PTWS help out stressed out brides.

But what about the excitement of being married? New adventures, new plans, etc?

ps: I feel like that hilarious woman who makes videos of herself reading from wedding boards is totally reading this one.

emmkae – searching for vendors, choosing flowers, finding a venue, booking the DJ, …. *sigh* by the time I leave work, I just don’t have the energy for this!

Trust me, if I had the cash, I would hire a wedding planner and be done with it.

Oh I definitely hear you!  I totally have PTWS!  Luckily for me, I had my best friends wedding 2 months after my wedding and I was the DOC for another girl I met on weddingbee the month after that!  It definitely helped w/the PTWS.  However, I still find myself reading weddingbee all the time.  I can’t seem to get weddings out of my system.  I guess it’s because I just love to organize and I love everything about weddings. 

I have recently started getting into finding deals on buying things at CVS for free.  It has definitely helped a bit w/the PTWS.  Maybe you should find some type of hobby and maybe you won’t feel so blue.  🙂

I think I know what you mean.

   My husband and I were officially engaged in March and our wedding was in August.  In order to graduate I decided to take 24 credit hours this summer along with planning a totally outdoor wedding at my parents home. I finished my last final the day before I got married- it was wild.  I loved planning my wedding, like many of you.  Now that I am married- I don’t know what to do with myself.  I’m done with school for the moment, working, but that’s it!  I have all this time- and I’ve gotten into this habit of looking at weddingbee everyday and plotting ideas out.  I’m not sure  how to focus this new energy, and kids are waay out of the question at this point 🙂  

   Wedding planning takes up so much of your time… when it’s over I think it’s hard to adjust to having time to use for other things.

Oh, I feel you 100%.  It’s been 2 + months since my wedding, and the feelings in the first few weeks after the wedding were the most intense.  I felt like I had nothing to distract me from the dullness of the 9 to 5… I have started blogging a bit (http://parentheticalthoughts.wordpress.com) and looking at decisions I’d put off during my year of wedding planning (e.g. what next steps to take with my career; whether or not to move). 


My advice: try some new hobbies, plan a party, spend time with friends/family, etc.  And enjoy spending time with your husband – congratulations!
