Is anyone else sad it's over?

Recommended Posts

Andrea, I've packed on at least 15 pounds. I've quit weighing myself because it's depressing. THe cold weather doesn't help at all!

It was great but the weather SUCKED! We were lucky our cruise ship was able to dock. So in that respect I feel very thankful I was able to get married. I would love to go back and see the island in the sunshine! We also had a missing minister which pushed everything back and forced us to rush back to the ship. I have a great memory of riding in the taxi back to the port and the song "Every Little Thing is Going to be Alright" was blasting on the radio. I was with family and friends and we all sang at the top of our lungs!

Yeah, the scale is my enemy right now. We aren't talking or seeing each other.

Heather...I feel your pain!

 

Heck - I've been married for 2 years now, and I'm still in the 'post wedding' blues!!! We had the most fantastic 3-week wedding trip/honeymoon 2 years ago, and ever since I've still felt somewhat 'empty' and I'm always looking for another project! I think this is the main reason I'm still here on BDW - I can share everyone else's experiences! I'm lucky because my best friends have decided to get married in Mexico next January, and she is not a planner, so she has recruited me to help with her wedding plans!

 

I totally want to start a wedding business of some sort! Maybe we should do that together!?! we do live in the same city after all!

 

Your wedding photos (the few that I've seen) look gorgeous and I'm glad you had a great time...I'm sorry you didn't get as much alone time on your honeymooon week as you would have liked...but you can definitely plan for your next trip!

 

If you want to chat, pm or email me any time!

Linsday,

 

Francis and I are planning another trip to somewhere in Mexico for this time next year. We both feel madly in love with snorkelling, thanks to Al and Noelle, who are in Cozemel right now, so jealous. Did you know that after spending two weeks at the Colonial they treked over to Cozemel, then are on their way to Peru on Friday?

 

I'm so happy for them that they can do that, they were so excited!!!!

I'm so glad you started this post! I felt the exact same way - I think it was just that I had so much FUN planning the wedding that afterwards I was like - ok what now! I think starting some sort of wedding business would be so awesome! And Lindsay is already TA so you two would have a blast! I think it is just a slump that you are in, like Abbie said, all of us old married ladies went through it as well, and it is completely normal. I have been looking on the internet too for a 1 year anniversary vacay, just a few days somewhere warm!

 

And how funny, I love looking at the local real estate market as well! I love the virtual tours and even though we just moved a few months ago it is fun to look at the other homes and get decorating ideas!

I hear you. Francis and I used to live downtown in a high-rise condo [we live in a very small city so we were able to see the outskirts of town from our view] and we absolutely loved it there. We had a corner unit, so we got great views and could watch the sun rising every morning. However, it was only 900 square feet and we have company from out of town a lot, so it just wasn't working. We ended up buying a brand new townhouse in a new part of town. It's great, big, and once again a corner unit so we have plenty of sunshine. Although, I personally wanted a house, something with a yard where I could garden. I guess I like looking at the housing market to dream and to see if a good deal ever comes up. I did think about becoming a real estate sales person for awhile, but they work long hours and weekends and evenings, and I used to work in retail, so I'm so over that.

Wow.. I started my own thread which is pretty much the same as yours.... post wedding blues - Anyone?

 

We were only married 6 days apart and are from SK.. you think it's the crappy weatherhuh.gif

 

I know I had to start a thread cuz my FI didn't know what my problem was.. and really neither did I... I was lucky however... my FI's parents wanted to stay with us for the second week.. AHHHHH... but we discussed and moved them to another resort...

 

I was wondering... did you find it hard to change your namehuh.gif I think that's when my 'blues' kicked in.... I'm a bit older than most brides (35). I was having issues with my career and life have one name and now that I was married I as just changing everything... like I was losing part of myself.

 

I didn't want to hypen, but also want my accomplishments under my maiden name to still count... sounds odd... I mean logically of course they count, and I am only changing a piece of paper.. but it really seemed much more monumental than that...

 

anyways, from one Sk girl to another... we may be sad.. but we all need something more to focus on and plan next years anniversay and make it the best second honeymoon ever~!~!!!

Sigh! I miss my wedding! That day went by soooooo fast and I really feel like there wasn't nearly enough time to take it all in. And I loved my dress and would love to just wear it every day if I could haha. Now I live vicariously through my friends that are getting married in the next year (at least 4 of them that I can think of offhand).

You all are scaring me....

 

I've actually been wondering about this myself. This happened to me last year-we went to Taiwan for 3 weeks in August and knew about it 18 months in advance. So we planned and spent lots of time talking about it and getting ready. Then we went....and we came home. And it was hard to come down.

 

So now I'm planning my wedding, which is 100x better than a trip to Taiwan and I'm trying to prepare myself for the same let down.

 

But... there is the AHR, the holidays (we're getting married in Nov) and then maybe, sometime next year we'll think about adding to our family. blush2.gif

 

Oh..and I'm struggling with the name change too....I'm well established in my career (8 years) and going from my unique name to his common one feels....bland? I voted that we play boggle with the letters of our last names, blindfold ourselves and order the blocks. FI wasn't so impressed with that idea. Something about carrying on the line of Parkers. (Because Parker's are a dying family name).

 

*sigh*

 

Anyway, I'm glad this thread is here and that I'm not the only one that's going to go through this.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
