Start investing your time into new things – hobbies, decorating your (possibly new) home, classes, etc.  There are so many more exciting things to look forward to now!

In a way, I can relate. I grew up dreaming about my wedding day. So when I lived my dream, I didn’t know how to let it go. I thought things liks, “What do I daydream about now? Wedding dresses, etc, don’t really matter to me anymore since I’m not having another wedding.” I think the biggest piece of advice I can give you is to not idolize your wedding. You have put it above everything else in your life, even enjoying your honeymoon with your new husband – and quite frankly, that is unhealthy and unfair to him. It’s time to take weddings off the pedestal. Enjoy your everyday life with the man who won your heart. Look at the future you two have coming and dream about that. Maybe you even need a break from the bee *gasp*.  Good luck, lady.

I’m probably in the minority here, but I was SO relieved when it was over! I was very nervous about the wedding (not the marriage). I’m pretty shy and it was all very overwhelming for me. The wedding was a little over 3 weeks ago and I’m just so happy things have calmed down and my hubby and I have gone back to our happy little life together with no more wedding stress/planning 🙂

I think i’ll have mixed feelings. The wedding has pretty much consumed my life at this point.. we are doing everything ourselves without the help of anyone, really. Almost everything is DIY. I’ll be happy after the wedding because I’ll have so much extra time, but that will also be the problem. I’ll need to find a new hobby that keeps me busy, just not sure what that is, yet.

I has an amazing time at our wedding and loved planning it but I’m not sad that it’s over.  I have some amazing memories and we both keep saying “let’s do it again” because we had so much fun.  But now is a time for me to take on my other goals that had been moved to the side to make room for the wedding.  I can now spend the time I need growing my business.  I will just be doing it as a Mrs 🙂

I was sad that it was over, but in a happy-sad way, if there is such a thing. I had been so looking forward to it so when it was over I was sad to not have it to look forward to again. It was an amazing day and we wish we could re-live it over and over again. I remember as soon as we walked down the aisle when the ceremony was over I said “oh, I’m sad that this part is over” but then I immediately started looking forward to the reception, then the next day’s brunch, then the honeymoon, then the pictures, then the video, etc. The wedding stuff goes on for a while. It is a little sad when it’s over, but it’s definitely one of those “don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened” kind of things.And even though the wedding is over you have memories forever and you will always have things to look forward to in your new life with your husband. But yeah, still wish it could be our wedding day again. It was the most joyous day of our lives It helps me to write out moments that I loved, look through pictures, and even reminisce once in a while with people who were there (but don’t do that last one too often because no one is as excited about your wedding as you are and you don’t want to be that annoying person who only talks about their wedding 🙂 )
