So we were married last year..late in the summer. Its been almost 6 months.. wow thats coming up super fast.. there are so many great milestones and memories that we are enjoying together..
But wait.. i have an obsession .. I keep on going over and over what we did and how we planned our wedding .. were our center pieces big enough? did everyone have a good time? Did we take enough pictures?
Does anyone else go through this?

Wow, I thought I was the only one who did this. Overall I love how our wedding turned out but for some reason I obsess over a few minor things. Pictures are a big one. It was an amazingly beautiful day and I need to start focusing on that! 2/14 is 6 months for us. Amazing how fast it has flown by!!

I know a lot of newlyweds struggle with this, but I can honestly say I haven’t. I’m just glad all the details are done with – I love being married, and ultimately that was the most important part of the day (getting married!) not centerpieces, or our smudged cake, or the DJ breaking out weird electronica elevator music during the dinner hour, or anything else that might have gone wrong.
You spent a lot of time planning and thinking about your wedding – maybe it’s just that you have a void where that spent time was going! Have you considered taking up a new hobby, or volunteering somewhere, or doing something else with your newfound free time? To take your mind off the wedding and to help you remember how many other great things there are in life!

I’m not married yet, but I haven’t been to a wedding since I was a kid (we’re the first of our friends and relatives to get hitched). Next year though, we have at least two more weddings on the calendar after ours, and there might be more. So I have a feeling I’ll be looking around at those weddings, thinking of what’s been done differently and maybe better. But our wedding is really unique and us, up in the mountains, so I don’t think there will be a lot of direct comparisons. And I really have nothing to compare it to at this point.

I only have a few regret that I have – I forgot my thank you speach for dinner so I made my husband wing it and then add a bit – but I worked hard on the planned one and had such great things in it and I wish we got some pictures taken after dark – our photographer does such great work with night pictures but with all the dancing ect I never did. I also wish I would have had the girls tighten up my dress again before the ceremony – we did formal pictures before the ceremony and all the sitting ect sort of loosened the dress and it wasn’t as tight and curvy as it could have been.
But other than that – all my memories are awesome – looking back at the pictures I loved how everything turned out – the venue, the decorations

None of those really fit me. There are a few minor things that I still think “ugh, I wish _______” but harping on them doesnt do any good. The thing is they are things that my MIL did that bugged me for so long but now I am creating our album and just looking back at the day (and the last 6 months) fondly. Of course there are a few minor details I would have changed but overall I loved our wedding, I think all of our guests had a great time and since the first wedding well be attending after our own is in another 3 months I havent had anything else to compare it to! Ive just been enjoying married life and looking forward to the next 6 months 🙂

I haven’t gotten married yet, but I think I’d have to agree with @daydreamwanderer. After spending so much time planning your wedding, once it’s done it can definitely leave a type of void in your life. I had that when I graduated law school and sat for the bar exam. 4 years of my life were completely consumed by law school. Once I sat for the bar I had a little mini-crises, like, what was I supposed to do with myself now? It took a few months, but eventually I was able to re-adjust my focus on other things and move on to the next stage of my life.
