First off, Congratulations!  Second, I enjoyed your description of your wedding day.  Lastly, I’m sure you’ll feel more “official” when you go on your honeymoon together and when people start referring to you as Mrs. X.  It will also sink in when you go to have your name changed, when you start receiving mail with your new married name, and when you wake up next to him for the rest of your life!  It will happen in time.  Smile

For us it was a gradual thing. After my wedding I didn’t feel any different, in fact, I was pretty sure I had made a mistake (we were dealing with some horrible in law issues).. it took about a year and a half to get that “husband and wife” feeling. Now we’ve been married for three years it doesn’t necessarily feel different, but it feels better if that makes sense.

we aren’t yet married… 11 days and counting… but I often wonder the same thing.  Will I feel more secure, more at peace once we say our i do’s, I imagine like all good things it comes in time. Enjoy being newly weds!

It sounds like you already lived with your DH before the wedding? That definitely contributes to the feeling of sameness I think. Obviously if you’re setting a up a brand new home with your new husband, the whole experience is going to feel more fresh and sparkly and new. Just because it’s an entirely new living situation. You can avoid some of that post-wedding “deflated” feeling. Whereas if you’re already moved in you just kind of go back to the life you already had.

On the other hand the “new” feeling can be both magical AND super stressful. My mom likes to talk about discovering that my dad requires the temperature to be about 40 degrees when he sleeps. At least you don’t have challenges like that to deal with!

I don’t really have an answer for you aside from “me too”!

We had been together 7  years when we were married (March)…. we have yet to go on our honeymoon and really didn’t even have a “wedding night” alone.  No big change here, at least not at this point.
