Ok so I just got married last month (YAY!!)! My husband and I got engaged pretty quickly and wanted to get married asap so we were only engaged for 7 months. I would have been happy with a courthouse wedding but he wanted a ceremony with a reception and the whole shebang. Of course I love him so I agreed! =) Even though we tried to make it as easy as possible, planning for our wedding was still stressful. We picked a venue that included a package that did a lot for us, we pretty much picked a florist and cake at random, and all the little details were just not that important. All that mattered was that I was marrying the love of my life.
The wedding itself was wonderful without any problems, we had lots of fun and it was good to see all of our friends and family there celebrating with us. We’re not really social types so it was even a little stressful to have to entertain so many people even though they were loved ones. When everyone left, we even breathed a little sigh of relief.
So now I have to admit it makes no sense to me that I’m experiencing post wedding blues!!! I mean it’s not like a serious depression or anything but there’s definitely a little bit of a sad feeling that it’s all over with. I would definitely expect this for someone who put their heart and soul into planning a lot of the little details for years, but not for someone like me who tried to make it as easy on myself and my groom as possible.
Any other lazy brides like me having this issue?

Yes! I just got married the other day and I was wondering the same thing because I basically put zero planning into this beyond picking out an outfit. After the ceremony we went to a bar for a few hours, then went home. I had a great time, am happy with the i-phone pictures that people took (lol) and have absolutely no regrets about how easy and low-maintenance it was, so I don’t know why I feel like a kid the day after Christmas. I’ve been with my husband for several years, so it’s not like I was expecting anything to be different as a married couple. I keep thinking thank god I didn’t pour all my money and energy into a real wedding because the letdown would be huge!

lampshade: Thank you!! I feel ridiculous but I guess it’s normal. Hopefully it’ll pass before too much longer and we can forget we ever felt like this lol. In the meantime I’m headed back to work tomorrow and I’m stalking wedding bee until life gets back to normal 🙂

I think whether or not you put a WHOLE lot of planning into it, it’s still the anticipation of finally getting married. A wedding is the beginning of a new chapter for you, and there’s a lot of excitement surrounding it.
I haven’t been married yet, but I can understand why you have a bit of blues. My advice would be to just let things go back to normal. You’re now married, and have a new exciting chapter to embark on!
Hope you feel betrer. 🙂
