Do you miss wedding planning?

tinge flowers and antlers / do you miss wedding planning / a thousand threads
While planning my wedding, I heard over and over from married friends how much they missed that part of the process. It had been stressful at the time, but once it was all over they were left with a bit of a hangover. They were sad to see the planning go.

What do you think? Have you heard the same? Did you have that experience yourself? If you could, would you go back and plan it all over again?

I maybe shouldn’t admit it, but my reaction was more of the opposite. The day I was able to wake up and just be married, to go back to our lives… I felt like doing a little dance.

    I’m with you, Laicie! I adored my actual wedding but the planning to get there was hard work! I miss the little details (can I put my dress on just because??) but overall, am happy we are just doing the regular married thing these days. Fun topic to discuss!!

    I feel weird when I actually acknowledge this, but I went through a MAJOR wedding planning withdrawal!

    I planned a wedding in 6 weeks, so that was all I’d do after work – think and plan and order and book and email wedding stuff. And then when it was over I sort of felt empty… But I’m glad to hear you other friends felt the same. At least I’m not alone! šŸ™‚

      Oh my gosh, no… I felt like the weird one for not going through it! I might be wrong, but I think you’re in the majority. šŸ™‚ It’s totally understandable – it becomes a huge part of your life!

    I’m so glad to hear there’s hope I won’t have planning postpartum!

    while the wedding day was fun and I loved and enjoyed it but I like the marriage part of our relationship rather than the wedding. i didnt have wedding postpartum feelings at all now i did when it came to celebrating our one year anniversary. i felt like the newlywed title was over with and that made me a bit sad
