@Gagaglo: I used to think I would really miss wedding planning…but now that its almost over, I think it will be a relief. Don’t get me wrong, I’m enjoying it. But, as it gets closer to the date, the stressors really increase. It’s a lot of pressure putting an event together. So you may actually be relieved its over and focus on setting into newleywed life. πŸ™‚

Life carries on with your husband! You are getting married to spend your life with someone not just to have a wedding πŸ™‚

I’m almost 3 months out, and I’ll tell ya, staying on weddingbee has helped with my wedding withdrawal.  I love living vicariously through everyone, and helping people with their plans. Admittedly, some days it’s harder than others and I’ll really miss our wedding day.  But in regards to what comes after the wedding?  Like Mrs v to be says, life carries on with your new husband and you begin to build your life together.  It’s a beautiful thing. πŸ™‚

You live happily ever after:)

Then you find other things to throw your time into- home decorating, fitness, join a bowling league with hubby. The options are endless…

You will find a new obsession – for me it is home decor.

Oh and even though I was married in Oct 09, I’m still on the bee because I love weddings & helping others find inspiration! So, it doesn’t go away after the wedding πŸ˜‰

I imagine you’ve spent most of your life up until the months you’ve been engaged doing hobbies, working, going to school, etc. πŸ™‚  You’ll find plenty of things to fill your time with. I miss college sometimes, but I don’t openly pine for it just ’cause it’s over ya know? You’ll be able to look back fondly while moving ahead with your new life together.

I feel the same way! I am so consumed with wedding planning right now. Sometimes I complain and get stressed out but in all honesty I really do love keeping busy in both my professional and personal life. I often wonder what I will do with myself after the wedding!

Knowing me, I will just turn all of my focus/obsessions onto something else whether it be decorating, house hunting, starting our family, etc. πŸ™‚

Both Fiance and my mom have asked me what I’ll do with my time when the wedding is over.  I already have an answer: get ready for the Next Big Thing.

For me, the Next Big Thing will be my renaissance festival, which goes from the beginning of April to the end of May.  I have rehearsals starting at the beginning of February, and because I’m going to be an instructor for the cast this year, I have even more to do.  Most importantly, though, I’ll need to start making pots…  My character’s schtick is that she’s a clumsy potter, so I need to make approximately 1500 clay bowls to smash between when we get back from the honeymoon on January 21st and when the faire opens the first weekend of April.  In other words, getting so many done will probably be even more work than this wedding.

My advice is to go out and rediscover your hobbies, and throw yourself into them.  Spend all your wedding energy on something else you love.  Life goes on, so you might as well do something with it.  πŸ˜€

I wonder this about girls I know that seem to do nothing but talk about their weddings, look at pictures, obsess over things, etc. They are also girls that don’t really have any hobbies. I think there is a direct correlation…

I, for one, have always been a very.busy.person. I always have something going on, either a sport, school, working, crafts, playing instruments, etc. Sometimes I barely have time for my FI! I love being busy. Wedding planning is just one of the many things I am doing at the moment, so I can’t say I’m obsessed with it. After the wedding, it will be off to grad school, then after school, it should be about time for a baby!

I’m not worried about how to fill time after the wedding at all! I always find something to do and you will too. You’ll be fine! Are there hobbies you always wanted to try? A class to take? After the wedding is the time to do it!

(and there is always the bee!)

haha πŸ˜€  If I could skip to the day and have everything set, I’d do that in a heartbeat!  I do not like worry and planning.  πŸ™‚

I am certain I won’t miss wedding planning at all… and I hope I won’t regret any of my decisions!
