Northwest Native: Post-Wedding Thoughts

Post-Wedding Thoughts

I did a post on my pre-wedding thoughts, so I figured I should do one on my thoughts after the fact.

I was right. Referring to Michael as my husband is the weirdest thing. [I already accidentally called him my fiance.]

I think/say, "We're married!" at least once a day. On the day of the wedding it was said at least twenty times between the two of us. We said it to each other at least five times while we were standing at the altar.

Other than having to remember to refer to Michael as my husband and have the "we're married" thought pop into my head, it doesn't feel much different.

Okay, I lied. My wedding band is driving me INSANE, which is another reminder that we're married. It is pictured below. There are no diamonds on the back, and it is constantly twisting and I'm having to adjust it. I do plan on getting my rings soldered together, but I'm going to do it at the place where we bought our rings, which is down by where my parents live. So it'll be at least a few more weeks before that happened.

Seeing Michael wear a wedding ring or feeling it when we hold hands is also different. It's exciting to me every time I notice it, though!

I keep wondering if I'll ever be excited for any other life events again...well, until we have kids. [Note: I am excited about moving, but I guess this question is more in regards to my birthday. It's on Monday and it doesn't feel like my birthday is coming up at all. I guess as I've gotten older it's been less exciting in general, but really, after such an amazing event I'm just like, "Meh."]

I'm linking up with Holly for Waiting on Wednesday!

  4. Yes to all of these! Seeing Freds with his wedding band on was/is my FAVORITE. Even now after two years. It never gets old!

    I had never planned on getting my rings soldered together, but after 4 weeks of the band twisting and turning non-stop I had had it! I got them soldered together. No rah-grets.

  7. Maybe it doesn't feel different being married yet bc it hasn't set in. Also, make a big deal about birthdays. We always do and getting older is exciting instead of sad

  9. I love being married, even a year and half later (well close enough) and I still look down at my ring and just get stupid happy over nothing.

    Love your wedding set, and I agree, soldering is the best. I've had mine soldered since we first got married and don't regret it for a second even though I just have a plain band.

  10. aww i remember thinking all of these things. i hate the word fiance, so i called KC my boyfriend up until we were married so it took me ages to get used to husband. and i got my rings soldered immediately, and they never move anymore (unless i lose weight haha) because they drove me insane for the short time that they weren't soldered.

  11. So cute that you sometimes feel his ring when you're holding hands and what not. I think you'll still be excited about stuff but your wedding day is suppose to be the most exciting!

  12. It will feel weird to you when you have to not wear your rings for a bit to get them melded together.
    Get a ring to keep on your finger while your bands are gone :)

  13. :) Realizing that you are now married and transitioning from referring to someone as your fiance to now your husband is such a weird feeling! I remember how I had to stop and think before I said it every time for awhile. I have the same issue with my ring twisting. I never got my fused together though. Here I am three years later still twisting it back lol

  17. Congratulations on your marriage! I can't wait to read more about it!!! And yes, it will take awhile for calling your new husband, "husband"!

  18. This is so sweet, I did a post similar after I was just married. Calling my fiance my husband took awhile but it was such a fun lil surprise every time I thought about it. Other events will be fun, but your wedding day is such a special moment.

  20. I think going from fiance to husband is going to be hard for me! I'm thinking about keeping my rings separate when the day finally comes. Just because I really don't wear my engagement ring at home & it would be nice to have the band to wear. But.. I can see how that would be annoying! And I think you should totally be excited about your birthday! That's a big deal too! :)

  21. You know, fine jewellery is my thang. (if you remember, we own a jewellery store and my guy is the jeweller.) We always advise people to get the rings without the diamonds in the back. The rings will wear better. Diamonds on the side of the finger or in the back are more prone to getting chipped or cracked. So, you've made the right decision with your choice.

  22. Isn't it crazy!! You're a true set now, lol!! I love your ring and I love how real and normal you are!! True feelings and all understandable and relatable!!! Happy day married chick!!! ;-)

  23. I have the same problem with my wedding band! It always twists around and it drives me nuts. I've thought about getting it soldered but I haven't. And yay for all the new things! :) <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  24. Haha, your excitement about allthemarriedthings shines through your writing- so cute! I love the idea of getting the rings soldered together too, especially if the one is so uncomfortable!

  25. You guys are so cute! I've often wondered how annoying it is to have a band full of stones jabbing your finger, let alone having to wear two rings together. Thanks for addressing my weird curiosities! hahaha

  26. I meant to comment on this yesterday but forgot! So my ring is also only half diamonds and I swear, 99% of the time it's backwards haha. It kind of drives me crazy, but I'm also learning to just constantly spin it with the side of my other fingers. (All this ring stuff is new to me, I know this is like DUH stuff.)

  27. Congratulations! I just found your blog via a comment on The New Mrs.! Absolutely darling blog! Isn't that funny how you have to get used to wearing your ring? My wedding ring always is turned around even though it was custom made to stay anchored. But now four years later it doesn't bother me so much.

  28. It definitely took a while to adjusting to saying husband and using my new name but it’s all such fun!

  29. I keep wondering if I'll ever be as excited for anything again either. I love love loved our wedding day and I'd love to go back and do it all over again, kinks and all!

  30. Aww, you sound so sweet. Yes, you are married! I know that the ring can take a bit of getting used to. Mine got in the way so much that for a while, I took it off whenever I was doing certain tasks. It kept catching on delicate fabrics. No one mentions that wearing diamonds on your hand can have that effect.
