    I was talking to FI this morning saying next month at this time we're going to be back at home, and what am I going to do with myself? I won't have anymore planning to do, and it kind of makes me sad. Did anyone else feel the blues after it was over? It has been so consuming over the past year, and then it's just over.

      It definitely feels weird. For the longest time I kept feeling like I was forgetting to do something. You know, prior to the wedding you had this huge to-do list hanging over your head but then when it's all over that to-do pressure still seems there- at least to me.

      Now I've moved on to organizing my pics, creating a slideshow, planning gifts involving my wedding pics- LOL. New obsession I suppose and I'm pretty sure people are probably tired of the wedding stuff.
      Happily married since 2008

        ugh - i was so happy it was over. but i am not a planner, so i was just happy i was done and married.

        but i also was really busy at work, in a relatively new house, and then got knocked up about 6 months later! lol but i have heard of brides say that, that they missed all of the planning. not me!

          I don't think it sets in immediately after the wedding because you still have thank you notes, photography stuff, etc. It actually was realy nice to have some down time. I really didn't experiance that until after the holidays as I was MOH in my friend's DW in September and we took a trip in January.

          well I got pregnant pretty quickly but my wedding was a big event over the summer and then I went back to work (I am a teacher so I have summers off). Life goes on you do miss it a lot and get so excited for people when they get to plan thier weddings and always offer to help and give advice since I went through it recently. But that's probably why so many of us are still hanging out around here.

            Yeah that has to be a weird feeling. After my sister got married she kept saying how strange it was, ha. I guess me and Joe will focus more on buying a new home together and I def want to travel before I have a baby. We wanted to go to Ireland and Australia. I guess we will see what's in store for me! haha
