Thanks for posting this - I had a conversation about this with my mom and sister the other day. My sister and I agreed this really happens, my mom thought we were crazy.
good reading... thanks!
I'm so afraid this is going to happen to me! You spend all this time and energy planning the wedding and then when it's all done, you get sad. What the heck do I do with my time? LOL
That's a fabulous article, thanks for posting!
That's scary, It's been almost 6 months since my wedding and I'm still looking at wedding sites and magazines, the worst part is last week on my way home I stopped by the Bridal store near my house to admire the new line of beautiful dresses in the window.
I do not have buyers remorse though and I love my husband more than anything, it's been so much fun living together and seeing him everyday. I just don't know what's wrong with me and why I can't stop looking at weddings. Any ideas? Is it just the addiction to PW?
I never experienced post-nuptial depression. =) Then again, I work on PW everyday so it's not exactly the typical situation.
tbabian - weddings are fun! maybe you have the event planner gene in you. =)
I think that's why a lot of brides become wedding planners after they get married. They enjoyed planning theirs so much!
I almost bought a wedding magazine at the supermarket a few days ago! My husband saw me looking at it and gave me that "are you crazy?" look - haha - Right now I'm shifting my focus to our married blog, updating my bio here and staying active on the forums, and going through the wedding pics.
I'm so excited to make all the photo books I want to give for the holidays! I made my B-Pic book on Blurb, but I just downloaded Picabo tonight and OMG I love it so much better!
I totally agree with you Margaret, weddings are definitely fun! I think that's why I'm so addicted, they are always so much fun to plan and to go to. They are also very beautiful and seeing two people so in love and happy together makes me happy too. I think it's sort of my Happy place to be. I would love to be an event planner! Maybe I should take some classes. Thanks Margaret!
"I put a lot of time and effort into the wedding-planning process," says Erin Hastings, 28, who got married in 2006 after an 18-month engagement. "Where do you redirect your energy once it's over?"
I have been thinking this exact same thing!
nesting?? if youre still in grad school - maybe focus on that??
idk - maybe we should get married every year if i'm gonna be going through pwd hahahahhaaa
