So your wedding is over: Now what?
by Amanda Nguyen

You made it! The frantic days of rearranging the seating chart, trying on wedding dress after wedding dress and stressing about your budget are over. Now is the time where you might hit those post-wedding blues. You know, where you've got a lot more free time and your fingers are itching for a new activity! If that sounds like you, take a minute to relax...and then get started on these projects. 1. Recycle your wedding. Literally. It might sound a little crazy but selling things from your big day could provide you with the extra money you needed to feel a little less guilty about splurging during your honeymoon. On Recycle Your Wedding, you can sell everything wedding-related, from photo backdrops to wedding dresses, to other brides. Cool idea, right? (A useful site for brides looking to buy decorations too!)

2. Thank you cards. Instead of dreading this task, look at this project as your perfect chance to show off all of your wedding photos! I mean, that's what you took them for, right? Instead of just you admiring them in the picture frame in your living room, use them for a unique spin on your thank you notes.

3. Create a wedding card book. This is any easy project that will keep you from losing any of the heartwarming notes you received on your wedding day. Customize it however you want to!
