@understanding:  Oh honey, take a deep breath and stop torturing yourself! What you experienced is so normal. It is completely understandable and, again, normal to have a big letdown of emotions after planning such a big event and the high of the actual day. Don’t hold on to the regrets you’re creating after the fact. Focus on the lovely and warm memories. Hug your husband (squeeee!!) and bask in that glow.

As for the thank you cards, you don’t need to apologize. People understand how weddings are, and they’re just happy to have been able to celebrate with you. Tell them how lovely it was to see them and all that. ((Hugs))

@understanding:  aww you sound like me always thinking of others and thats a good thing but not on this day ; 0 its all about you 2. your guest enjoyed themselves by seeing the 2 of you join as husband and wife. and they shared your special day trust that that was enough for your guest/family and friends they all understand that you were nervous and very busy. blessings and don’t worry about it. they enjoyed seeing you 2 smile and dance and start a life together. i cant wait for our special day i’ve been thinking about it a lot and i want to eat dinner and cake ; ) and dance all night with everyone. i’m going to try and take it slow and make it last. i can imagine how fast the night will go and im just the same when it’s all over im going to be very blue and cry that’s why we’re going straight on our honeymoon that night then cruising for a week in the caribbean. now put a smile on that face ; 0) your a married women now lol

@HisMoon:  +1!

 

@understanding:  I agree with what HisMoon is saying! It’s okay! I think a great thing to do might be to start thinking about what you’d like to do for your first anniversary, whether a weekend trip to a nearby state or international travel. It’s okay to reflect on your wedding day, but it’s also okay to move on. There’s so much living to do! Before you know it the photos/video will be in and you can enjoy it together.

Also, it is very difficult to spend time with every guest at your wedding. It’s okay if you didn’t have the most time for everyone! I was baffled the other night by a party I had for 20 people in which I didn’t get a chance to spend quality time with everyone, so I can only imagine that it was way harder for you! So it’s okay to feel bad about it, but you actually don’t need to feel bad, just so you know 🙂 And I wouldn’t write that on their thank you’s, just let them know you appreciated the time you did get to spend together.

@understanding:  Oh this is totally normal. You spend so much time thinking about your wedding and planning it, a lot of brides do feel a bit down in the dumps after. I think the best thing you can do is to find the next thing to focus on and look forward to. Maybe plan a vacation or something. It’s like when I get the post-vacation blues… I mope for a few days and then I focus on the next trip.. or a new project.
