Ok bee’s, this might sound silly, silly, silly but our wedding is 2 weeks away and I am already super sad about it being over.. I am basically done with the planning now.. All I have is loose ends to tie up.. and I am sad.. I have been planning this wedding for a year now and the past few months has been nothing but wedding, wedding, wedding. Now I am excited for our big day in 2 weeks and marrying my best friend, but I am wondering whats next after the wedding is over..
Now, it wouldn’t be so bad but I am currently not working as I am in graduate school. When we return from our honeymoon, I will have 1 month left of school so basically.. I am practically done with school. When we get back I will be jobless, school will be whinding down, and I think it will be hard because I have nothing to focus on..
It’s also complicated because my fiance’s brother is getting married a few months after (August) and while I am SO happy for them and not really jealous, she is just now getting into the frenzy phase which I enjoyed (she, however, is stressed and not enjoying it) and I miss that phase already! Maybe I should volunteer to help with their wedding- haha.
I don’t want to be bummed with our day 2 weeks away.. any other bee’s go through this and does it get better afterwards? haha

I’m a right under a month until my wedding and part of me is definitely going to miss the planning and all the excitment that leads up to a wedding. Instead of focusing on how you might feel in the future, focus on how you are feeling right now! You are probably getting super excited to get married and finishing school is a great accomplishment. Don’t worry about something ending think about all of the things that are beginning for you.

My advice, given to me by numerous people is, on the big day, take time to take everything in ,look out at audience during ceremony , just for a minute, look at the center pieces, etc, and smile at your hard work ! It will go fast but after the wedding you will find new things to keep you busy

I’m sorry to hear you are sad…already! Maybe start thinking about your thank you cards? You should try to think of some things to keep busy after the wedding is over, so marraige doesnt feel like a disappointment when there’s no “work” left to distract you.

I’m not! To me, wedding planning has been the biggest PITA ever. I can’t wait to get it over with and get back to normal life!

@trueblue14: Haha, I actually felt this way to about 4-5 months out when the wedding still just seemed like this distant idea, when I was overwhelmed with vendors and how much money I was shelling out.. Now that I have accepted all that, found vendors I loved, and everything is falling into place I have really, really enjoyed the process and am sad its over. Fiance tells me we can do vow renewals every year if I so please, but that seems silly- haha.
@MrsTVLover: I don’t think that I will feel that marriage is a disappointment, this has just been such an exciting time and as happy as I am to spend forever with my Fiance, I am a little sad that this is something I only get to do once. I will have the thank you notes. We hope to start looking into home buying later this year and I am career searching so maybe that will keep me occupied.
@MrsOrange: Thanks for the advice.. I def. need to remember to do this and just take it all in.
