Like I miss not being able to fantasise about wedding dresses anymore. And I miss the feelings of anticipation. And I miss being able to justify buying impractical expensive stuff. I miss being able to get creative. I definitely miss being on honeymoon.
But I don't miss that neverending feeling of having lots to do. And I don't miss that anxious feeling as you add up all those innocent little numbers into a big ugly total. I don't miss always having the wedding in the back of mind even when there is more important stuff I should be concentrating on. I don't miss having to make decisions about things that I don't really care about. I don't miss worrying that my wedding will be good enough.
But despite all that stuff, the good outweighed the bad and I truly loved planning my wedding. So much so, that I was a little worried that when all the wedding hoo haa was over I'd feel a bit sad or empty.
But I'm relieved to say I don't! I loved having something creative to put my energy into, I got off on the details, I enjoyed blogging about it and the day itself was so much fun- BUT I'm glad it's over.
I love that from now on all the weddings I will go to will be other peoples. We will just have to turn up and celebrate.. no decisions to make, no agonising, no negotiating, no pressure. Yippeee!!!
