After the wedding is over, what is something (big or small) that you're most looking forward to about being married?? Or if you're already married, what is the best thing so far?

    Since we have lived together for almost 4 years now, there isn't too much that will change between us once we are married (I don't think). But I am soooo excited to change my name and say "this is my HUSBAND"... I agree Miranda, 2 year engagement is so long and I just want to be married!!!

    Not having my last name anymore. One word: freedom.

    His last name and being his WIFE! Lol we have been together 8 years and have a son and my daughter so don't expect much else to change.

    I agree with the having the last name. He's half Columbia so I'm going to have a Latin last name. So when I apply for jobs, they'll be super confused expecting a white or hispanic girl, but in comes an asian. Smiley smile

    Also, being able to travel with him everywhere. No more, "I'm going _____for vacation with my family." He's going to be part of that!

    Referring to him as 'husband' instead of 'fiance' - I hate calling him that. And, a couple years down the road, having a baby or two Smiley smile

    We've lived together for a while, so not much will change besides my last name and the fact that all of our finances will be together now

    Looking forward to growing old with him. Feels so nice to call him my Husband to share his last name. We are now one. It's just us and our two kids. I didn't think it was going to feel any different since we've been together for so long, but it does. Feels awesome....For now, ask me in a few months though haha!!

    Ready for even more security (we have a home together and are obviously engaged) but just knowing when we make decisions together its really together and we don't need a back up plan for the decision LOL. I'm ready to be a wife like 100% guilt free. sometimes during the rship (not just the engagement) I felt I would be doing the most. like FH has his own business and I would help him out a lot (like I ran his business making him thousands while he enjoyed his class reunion last year and we weren't engaged yet), I would give him ideas that make him money, and never ask for a dime, and never compensated for my time and energy (except his gratitude). Now I can feel like I am doing this for us, to make us money, to provide for us. Also the married sex, just ready to get rid of that guilt bc yeah I have always had that, it doesnt stop me/us but like I said guilt free wife duty.

    The companionship. I always kind of envied young married couples because they looked like they had a partner-in-crime for the rest of their lives. I wanted something like that, and now I have it Smiley smile I guess it was like that when we lived together before getting married, but now it feels more "solid" somehow.

    Being done with wedding planning.

    Devoting energy and resources to going on dates and making our house a home.

    Introducing him as "my husband"!

    I feel like even though we've been together for 4 years 7 months and own a house that people will take us more seriously when we introduce each other. Silly, but there it is.

    Having his name and hearing him call me his wife.

    Also, after we get back from our honeymoon we're starting to look at our relocation, so Mister will start looking for jobs (or a transfer), and I'll start looking for houses in the cities we're considering. Then moving into our HOUSE (we own our condo, but, let's face it, it's a glorified apartment that we paid WAY too much for in the Bay Area). And then stopping my birth control about 9 months after our wedding.

    The rest of our lives: house, travel, pets, mortgage, white picket fence, 2.5 kids. Never having to do anything alone, and always having a plus one by my side.

    Not having to commute to see each other. Being able to see him every day and to give him a hug. It is the small things.

    Referring to him as Husband is super weird and I am not used to it. The most 'exciting' thing for me is just seeing the ring on his finger everyday (particularly when we are out and about) and knowing he is all mine.

    ETA - agree with others about just being DONE with wedding planning haha that is kind of sad that we are all so excited for that.
