We got married last Saturday – October 6th – woke up the last few mornings and was very angry. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO? We aren’t planning on having kids for a while, we’re going on a delay honeymoon so I guess I can look forward to that and then the holidays will be here also both of our birthddays (we’re december babies) and then come JANUARY what the heck am I going to do?????

Hobbies? Get a job? Volunteer?

Find something else to focus on, I guess. I think it’s pretty normal for ladies to feel a bit sad when the wedding is done… all that planning and then you ask yourself ‘what now!?’.
I felt this way after we came back from our last vacation… it was amazing. I didn’t want to go back to real life. I spent the first week back extremely bitchy, but then I got back into the swing of real life and remembered the things I liked to do before, etc. It just takes some time.

Be a loser like me and stick around a wedding site even though your wedding was almost a year ago and you won’t have kids (the other main topic of said site) for at least 2 years. 🙂 Or take up a new hobby, I learned to knit!

@chasesgirl: I second this. :p Even the knitting part (seriously, it’s fun!).
In all seriousness, just find something else to focus on. Once you get back into the swing of “real life” it gets normal again!

@misspeanut: I totally feel like an old granny but the scarf I made is EPIC!! I had been wanting to learn forever but with all the crazyness going on hadn’t, and finally got bored enough to need something to do other than stalk other peoples weddings.

Thanks guys! Its just so BLAH… I was soooo busy especially a few months leading up to the wedding. I don’t even remember half of the wedding day, it just flew by as everyone said it would and now its “real” and I’m married and I guess it just didn’t feel real before. I’ll try to find a hobby!!! maybe go back to school and get an MBA or something who knows…

Now you get to be married!
Do married people shit, go garage sailing, watch all of the Friday the 13th movies in a row, set out with every intention of baking cookies and just eat the dough, go through your nothing but sweatpants phase, catch the flu at the same time and learn that vomiting can be a team sport, plan a dinner party and put all that stemware and china to good use, go out for dinner at some greasy spoon get waited on by Agnes who’s ass is two axe handles wide and calls both of you “kids”, buy a puppy, fight over what to name it and end up calling it Earl, refinish the kitchen cabinets and burn Thanksgiving dinner…that should keep you busy for a while!
And no matter what, have some fun!

Go back to normal life?
We’ve been together so long that getting married just made it legal. We delayed our honeymoon, so we went right back to work and everyday life.

@Nona99: Epic response!
OP- Enjoy being married. Oh, and we bought a house. I will be busy for the next 10 years with remodeling plans and such.

Hah this post is great.
I got married in August, immediately went on a honeymoon and once we were back wondered what the hell I was going to do. In the last month I have completely redecorated our bedroom, paint, new bedding, etc,.
We were doing some other home renovations before the wedding so are trying to finish those up too!
My sister is getting married in Mexico next winter so I’m still wedding shopping for her, and secretly a bit for me still. Although destination wedding’s don’t take much planning…
It’s funny how you kind of get bored once its all over. Indulge in things you like, whether it be cooking, knitting, renovating, sports, making babies….

lol… just do what you use to do before you were planning the wedding… you don’t need to change your everyday lifestyle just because you are married!

What?!? Resume life as normal now!
What did you do before you were planning a wedding?
Why are you waking up angry? What is making you angry?
