    It's been nearly a year and I think I am finally getting over my wedding obsession. I do still gaze wistfully at the bridal magazines in the grocery store checkout lines,though. I also love seeing all of the planning threads and reading reviews, and looking at PICTURES of course! However, I can make it thought the day without day dreaming about bouquets and favors.

    My DH and I bought a house in September and are finally getting around to unpacking and remodeling and all of that fun stuff. We also bought a new dog to grow our family. We aren't quite ready for real babies yet! LOL

    What about the other married ladies? What is new with you post wedding?

      I had a different experience. after my wedding I was burnt out on all things bridal. I only stick around here to see what my BDW friends are up to & I hardly check in on the planning threads. I did enjoy the wedding planning, but I am so relieved it is done.

      I've become totally obsessed with photography since the wedding so that fills my time that was spent on wedding planning.

        i'm kinda with morgan. i enjoyed planning so much that i agonized over my hubby's surprise 30th bday and then a friend's baby shower at my house. i'm now done planning for awhile. i'm in grad school, and so is dh, as of next monday. our lives are relatively boring and uneventful, for which i'm pretty glad.
        i read a lot of threads but don't have much time to post, esp. in the planning threads...i try to stick to the pv stuff.

            Ok, you ladies will most likely laugh and think I'm an idiot but I am married. Actually married since 10/272001. I'm only 30. I'm not a long time member. So you are asking yourself why am i here. Well my girlfriend Shannon and her sister are dw brides. They got me hooked. Also i am doing lots of planning for Shannon's wedding. Maybe her sister's who is 3 months after Shannons. And then I have 3 other girlfriends getting married in the next 2 years. Si i will be very busy. I also am trying to become a vendor on this website. But I won't discuss it cause I know I'm a good girl I'm not allowed. But anyway I was happy to see some married ladies on here. I'm also addicted to facebook but it's nice to talk to new people. Also people with the same interests. All facebook is reminiscing about times I would like to forget. You know the big hair, braces, and goofy prom gowns. Well just wanted to say hi and look forward to meeting new friends which is good for a stay at home mom.

              i'm torn between being glad the wedding is over, and wishing i was planning another one. what i miss most is the creativeness it allowed and all of the DIY projects that I labored over... i miss those.

              DH and I are now starting our long awaited DIY projects on the house. Not really the same but something to keep us busy!

              Oh and I can't wait to start researching our next vacation... which is not until next summer but when it gets closer I can't wait to start doing all my homework!

                I still look at the bridal mags while I'm waiting in line at the grocery store, and I still get excited when I see someone is getting married at the Moon Palace......But we just bought a new house also and so I am channeling all my wedding addiction stuff into that. I was MIA for awhile from BDW b/c I think I didn't really know what to do with myself after the wedding! It was like all I did was talk on here about what I was doing and how excited I was and then after I posted my pics and review I was like....ok now what?? But luckily I found my way back and have been on here tons lately LOL!! And I feel so lucky to have made so many friends on here too!

                  I would totally plan everyone's wedding if I could - I liked it and didn't really get burnt out. Planning for this baby in my belly though? Can someone do it all for me? It was easy for me to make a decision about wedding stuff because DH and I were the only ones who would really be affected. Baby decisions though UGH!!! I'm convinced I'm going to pick the wrong everything and the kid will be a mess.
