@anemonie:  Cheery post.

Lol, prancing / dancing / twirling around in your Wedding Dress… can’t say I’ve done that yet… but it sounds like a cool thing to do !!

@Asia:  – Wow great link… I may have to buy that book as I’ve always thought I might want to learn how to sew.  Don’t see myself making any clothes, BUT I’d love to learn so I could do home decorating projects… curtains, cushions, etc.

@greenidlady: – LOVE Pinterest.  I find it a great source for finding NEW Projects.  The trick tho is to stop “pining” and start doing.  Like yourself, I have to say I am waiting for better weather as a way to find more motivation.  As soon as it is warm enough, that I can open the windows, I’m gonna get going on some of my long list of Pinned Projects.

@greenidlady:  Well, our photography can’t be considered a usual case because we used friendors with full-time photography jobs outside the wedding industry. I know how to edit photos and do it as part of my job, so the photographers edited some of the photos as an unexpected courtesy and gave the raw files to me to edit myself. It took them about a month to get them mainly because they have full-time jobs to do, and we waited till we saw them in person to get the disk. But I’ve heard 4-8 weeks is pretty normal.

Also, DH and I have spent many nights in with Scattergories, Netflix, and a bottle of wine. Going out with friends is fun, but there’s nothing wrong with a night in with the Mr.!

Re – Photos

We got our sneak peak the day after the Wedding.

Edited Photos in about a month.

Then I had to wait thru pretty much the same cycle for our Back Home Reception Photos.

(Consequently… here we are now… at 3 months married)

In the meantime, I have a HUGE PILE of Pre-Wedding / Honeymoon Photos that Mr TTR and I took that I have slowly been editing / organizing.

Difficult to figure out what I want to do with ALL these wonderful memories.

Thinking some of the very best we’ll have printed / framed / published

Some of the others we’ll organize onto a stick / CD for viewing at home, with friends & family (maybe finally get around to buying ourselves a Digital Picture Frame so we have somewhere where the photos are showcasing all the time in our home… for our own enjoyment vs just being on a CD in a drawer waiting to be loaded into our Computer or Tv)

Hope this helps,

Well immediately after the wedding my husband and I had to move into my mom’s garage since our apartment wasn’t ready yet. So about a month after the wedding my husband and I were finally able to move in to our apartment together. Since we didn’t live together before marriage I definitely had plenty to concern myself with once wedding planning was over, what with setting up/decorating/moving, etc. (We did not go on a honeymoon.) I also started looking for a new job since at the time I was an assistant teacher, but having just graduated right before the wedding, it was time to move on up to teacher status. I guess I did have a lot going on (thinking about it in hindsight), but at the same time I think you will find it nice to get back to real life. Pick up a new hobby, try something fun that you never had time to do before, plan some really fun date nights… live life and have a great time doing it!

@greenidlady:  It takes FOREVER. And I’m not a very patient person when it comes to things like this. I like to have my home all set up, perfect, beautifully decorated, yadda yadda, within like the first month! It’s been one year since we moved in, and now we are finally settled. I would say it probably took 5 months. We have all of our furniture, all pictures are hung, we are really happy with the way everything looks and has settled in. Unfortunately though we only live in a one bedroom and I know when we eventually move to a bigger place I am going to have to go through the furniture acquiring, decorating headache phase all over again (which is mostly a headache because of the $$$ attached).

Man, I totally felt like something was missing after the wedding and honeymoon. I actually cried that it was all over, which is funny, because I was so stressed out beforehand that I was excited for it to finally happen! Haha! Grass is always greener, and such. 😉

I just let myself adjust back to normal life, which honestly, was really nice. It took a lot of adjusting, but the holidays really helped keep me busy. Then I started looking into ways to make our apartment more like home. We also got a dog a couple weeks ago, but we’d be wanting one for a long time! 😀
