@bombaysapphire_13: You know the saying: Don’t cry because its over. Smile because it happened 🙂

Honestly, I didn’t really miss the planning and all that jazz. We were quite happy to just be married and start life together. I think it is hard getting back into the swing of things, but just do the things you enjoy. Try starting a new book, take walks, make a dessert, find a new hobby. Nothing will probably excite you as much as your wedding for a while, especially with your honeymoon being a ways away, but you will get excited again.

Since our July 6, 2012 wedding we have made MANY firsts together, and we now have a house and puppy and are TTC. Lots of exciting stuff going on. Sometimes I wish life was a little more boring so I could slow down 🙂

@bombaysapphire_13:  I deal by not putting too much effort and energy into my wedding!  Now you need to focus your attention on your marriage, which should have been the primary focus all along.  It’s just one day!  Take up a new hobby 🙂

I was about to write a post on this exact same topic. We got married the day before you and have been back to work for about a week now, and I’m just not into it anymore. Our wedding was so beautiful and so much fun, and it was so wonderful to get to see all of our friends and families, and I just can’t come to terms with the fact that it’s over. No more planning, no more research, no more stress (which would seem like a good thing but I kind of miss it haha).

I don’t have any advice on how to move past the post-wedding blues, but know there are more of us feeling the same way you are!

@bombaysapphire_13:  Time heals everything and even if you are feeling dazed now things will start to pick up! Once your back in routine everything will feel better and the honeymoon will come quicker! It is awesome that you had such a wonderful wedding and a great experience because it will be memories that last a life time!

Find something else to obsess over. For me, it’s finding us a house to purchase and plan our honeymoon which we cant take till March 2014.
