Post-wedding life plans?

I've been thinking about all of the free time that I'm going to have once my life isn't consumed with planning this wedding anymore and what our post-wedding life plans are going to look like. While I'm super excited for the wedding day, I have to say that I'm looking forward to getting my life back!

So, what are everyone's life plans for after the wedding is said and done? Moving, starting a family, going back to school, getting a new job?

For me personally, we plan to start the process of buying a house directly after the wedding so that we can move closer to our families and my job, and we are also planning our honeymoon for September, a few months after the actual wedding. I'm honestly super excited to get into our first house and focus on renovating and decorating things they way I want for a year or two. We want kids but definitely not right away (we're early-mid 20's so on the younger side) and probably won't visit that idea until summer 2021 at the earliest.

    I am so excited to get back to normal!! I just want to relax this summer. I am very low key, happy in my house or on my porch lol. FH owns our home. We have some projects that need finishing up so we will start on those again after the wedding. All I want to do is slow down. I'll think later about a honeymoon and plans!

    Honestly, having the wedding off of our plate has been the best! We love having so much more free time now and we are really enjoying newlywed life! We already own a home so we jumped right into renovation projects pretty fast. We also are planning to start a family in the next two years so we have been hardcore financially planning for that, saving money and what not. We visited the idea of selling our house and moving closer to our families, but whether that comes before or after baby only time will tell. We are just loving having money again and not throwing every penny at a party anymore!

    After the wedding - ah, such sweet words right now.. We're planning on trying for kids sooner than later. He has a 7 year old, but I have no kids of my own, so we're going to try for one since we're no spring chickens. We're hoping to buy some land and either a house or build a house on that land in the next 2-3 years. He owns our house right now, but it's small for us to grow as a family.

    I've always dreamed about buying land and building on it - sounds so nice to be able to build the exact house you want! Good luck on the baby journey, so exciting!!

    We are going to plan our honeymoon after the wedding, we also plan to have it in September a few months after our June wedding. After that, we are looking to buy a house next year.

    SAMEEEEEE!!!! I cannot wait to get back into a new normal with my new hubby! Our first plans are to take our honeymoon at the end of May. Then come home and get our place straightened up! We have a whole room of boxes (some wedding shower stuff we haven't opened yet, other just junk we need to go through/get rid of) that I would like to organize and clean up so I can feel sane again. Then we will just chill this summer, and hopefully this fall or next my fiance will be enrolling in online business classes to finish his degree. We have to get our savings built back up first but it is something he wants to do because he is so close to finishing. He has had to put his schooling on hold for a bit (not because I asked him too but because he wanted to get married first) but he will be back at it as soon as possible! Then hopefully within a few years we will be able to get our own little house (we rent a small townhouse now). We want a family and kids but not for a good 3 years!

    Oh awesome! Do you know of any good and AFFORDABLE online business schools? We just started looking. It needs to be online because we both work and he just wouldn't be able to swing going to classes.

    I was just thinking today about how much more time I'll have once wedding planning is over! I'm currently in grad school and just about pulling my hair out trying to juggle full-time job, full-time grad school (which I have to do to receive financial aid), wedding planning, and trying to see my family and friends on occasion. After the wedding for the immediate future I'll be completing my final handful of semesters and hopefully having more time to engage in my hobbies!

    I know LSU has a lot of smaller branch campuses that offer a ton of affordable, online degrees and the degree would still say LSU on it so it's still a big name school which could help out later on in the job market!

    We haven't decided, but it will be somewhere in the mountains. We're thinking: Colorado, Montana, or Wyoming.

    I couldn't imagine going to school and wedding planning!! That's awesome but I can see why also super stressful. What are you going to grad school for?

    Thats exactly what we have been afraid of with online schools! We want to make sure they are reputable! We live in KY and the University of Kentucky (where I got both my undergrad and masters degree from) doesn't offer online business classes! Thanks for the tip! We will be looking into that!
