Is it just me?
I feel more sad than I thought I would now that it's all over :( As stressful as some of it was , I really miss the planning :(
i do NOT miss the planning, but i find myself thinking more than I'd like to admit, about how my details could have been better and how i wish i could've done some things differently. i just wish people had delivered the service they had said they were going to...ya know? but i'm a big girl, i'll get over it!
The thought of never being able to wear a veil again, or that my moment has passed and I will never have it again is kinda sad - but I am in baby making mode, so now I just can't stop thinking about all of that!
aww, Denise. can you become a DOC and help with my planning?
totally normal. PWD (post-wedding depression) I had it for a month or two. You are happy, but missing that "something" in your life. I threw myself into work which helped.
I have talked to other friends and they said the SAME thing, that you get sad after it all is done.
I haven't missed it because I'm planning my cousin's wedding now and I get to help D1rty with hers :D
Boy was i glad when mine was over though..huge weight lifted!
MissQ - I do the same thing! The good thing is only you know those details.
This is normal, many of us went through this! I tried to do things wedding related around me, and wiened myself from there. (Selling things, making scapbooks, printing pictures, making albums, thank yous, etc.)
Also you can put some energy in other planning- showers, friends/ family parties, holidays, etc.
In the meantime, have fun with your DH being a newlywed. Make plans, dates, trips, enjoy eachother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its such a fun time!
thanks H... that helps! ya i felt like i had my life and brain back once the wedding was done, huge weight lifted. i'm actually missing the honeymoon! i want another vacay to look forward to..hehe.
hahah MissQ, that is what I missed the most. I was trying to plan another honeymoon on the flight home!
I am soo sad too but don't miss the stress ! I want to get into this business, I love it! If anybody wants help with DOC in san diego, let me know! I would love to help or even try to bartend, haha!! It can't be hard, just pour the drinks!! I don't have much experience just my own wedding and my cousin teaches me stuff because she is a wedding coordinator. So I would be willing to help with ANYTHING locally for free just to get experience, I love weddings!!
sweet, it's not just me! no seriously, we got back sunday and i'm already thinking of where we can go to next. nevermind we have some MAJOR saving to do before we can go ;)
MissQ - on the way to airport coming back from our honeymoon I was literally searching travel websites looking for deals on my phone.... I just needed another vacation to look forward too!
LOL KK. it looks liked we've found another commonality among the recently married! =)
I hear ya... I had PWD for a few months after the wedding. Hey, I am still on here and it is almost a year later. But it does get better. And like Star, I get to help my cousin plan her wedding now. So that helps a little bit, all the fun without most of the stress. :)
I want to go on a HM again too. I wish we had the money, I would have loved to go somewhere for our 1st anni, but that isn't happening. And we are starting to work on TTC. That is super exciting for me. :)
Faith!!! How fun would it be to be your DOC???? .... OMG! That would rock!! .... Im still thinking about crashing Butterflydreams ceremony tomorrow .... it's close to my daughters dance recital time though ...so not sure ..I told her Id be posting any pics I took if I did crash ;)
And I got lucky almost everything went perfect .... I have nothing but raves for my vendors
Tinidetails -I wish you were available last week :)
MissQ/KK - haven't taken our honeymoon yet and i also want to book 2! Our minimoon was so not relaxing with all the guests still in town
cari/KK - can't wait to see you guys in August!
MrsB - do it J/K your daughter will be quite upset you dissappeared.
I know star, I can't wait to meet you & KK! I still think of your x-mas card every once in awhile. It was so unique!
Yay Caribear and Star- I can't wait to meet you guys either - we should plan a big get together before August though - that seems sooooo far away to me right now!
Hahaha, Denise since you said that would rock I am serious!!! LOL. That would be sooo awesome!!! I am dead serious.
You should so crash her ceremony and post pics!!!! haha. =)
i'm not sad at all!! i don't miss planning at all!! i feel like all the planning/printing/shipping, etc. was definitely worth it....BUT i don't feel like doing it again or becoming a wedding planner now...wedding photography will be enough!
and i've already scheduled my TTD session for next month....so i'll get to wear my dress and sash and veil again.....and maybe have Jack in the pix too??
