@FutureMrsBPB:  I can totally relate!  My fiance keeps asking me, “So, what are you going to do after the wedding?!”  I DON’T KNOW, I’m already sad!  Although, I hope there will be some sense of relief.  In addition to being super fun, this is all pretty stressful, too!

It started about March for me. One day when things were going wrong at work and life in general, I was thinking, just think about the wedding and the Honeymoon. Then I thought, well what happens when I have a crappy day in July? What do I have to look forward to? Yeah. that sucked.

I do miss the wedding and all the fun – but I started a list of all the things I put off/didn’t do because of the wedding that I get to do now. Things like making our wedding photo album, little weekend trips to take (to lessen the Honeymoon withdrawals), gifts to make for the SIL and BFF who are both expecting, etc. It’s working ok so far…but it’s only been a few weeks. We’ll see if I can continue it πŸ™‚

Oh and also, I am not going to leave the Bee. I didn’t discover it until April, but I love it so much it would really cause withdrawals if I left it now!

Can I share?  I’m feeling down today because another photographer released amazing pictures from a wedding at my venue. I’m almost resigning myself to the fact that my wedding won’t look great with those weddings as reference.  I know I shouldn’t care, but I fear judgement…especially because I’m a blogger and I do so much reading about decor and wedding stuff.

I’m getting married at a new venue.  It’s owned by the most expensive wedding planner in town, so most of the people using it are her clients…and they have insane budgets. 

So, every wedding I see at the place is probably a $50-70K wedding.  I’m starting to feel as though my wedding is going to look pathetic there.  I feel like I’m having an inferiority complex.

I feel the same way after everything! And I know I will be sad when the wedding is over, but I’m glad that I have sisters’/friends’ to look forward to and help plan in the future, and that helps a lot!

Mine’s not necessarily with the projects/tasks…because I have so many left it seems there’s not a light at the end of the tunnel….

BUT I get extremely sad that we only get ONE night to celebrate. Why can’t it be a week long festivity? All of our favorite people in one place and we only get one night? Boo. That sucks.

I was a bit like I wont go dress shopping again and I wont choose or make this stuff again. I found it harder after, especially the first two weeks. I found it hard not keeping my eyes peeled for things that I could use on the day or for the weekend of the wedding. It’s weird that it’s not at the forefront of my mind anymore ;(
