Anybody else get a little sad once their wedding was over?
I am so happy to be married to MrGeekChic but I am sad our big day is over. I spent so much time planning our wedding and it was incredibly awesome, but it went by too fast!!
I took events management in school and want to do it professionally but I am having a hard time finding a job in the field. So planning my wedding was also an opportunity for me to do what I love and want to do as a career and now I feel a hole in that area as well.
We delayed our honeymoon and will be going to Paris in September, so I’ve been trying to focus on that to keep my mind off of how sad I am that our wedding is over, but it still creeps in there every once and a while.
Did anyone else experience this, and if so – how did you deal with it?

I did. I mean, in the end I’m really just happy to be married and not have to stress over things. I actually do some wedding planning for other people, as well, and it does help. Honestly, just give it a little bit of time and you’ll realize that even though it’s sad that the wedding is over, the marriage is much better 🙂

@GeekChic: I was super relived to have it be over and have it go without so much as a hitch…..but then a few weeks later I got depressed.
I realized it was the most special day of our lives and probably the biggest party we’ll ever throow. Also: the wedding occupied so much of our lives for 8 months straight, so having that empty gap was a transition process for me.
I got ver it onec worked kicked in and life began. We also start TTC and now i’m pregnant so I now realize our life is filled with much more exciting things. I am looking forward to the day our baby is born more than I ever was the wedding.
I do still look at our wedding pics and try to remember *how* happy I was that day to finally be marrying my husband:))) *tear**tear*

Definitely with you on this one. I’m not so much depressed as just wishing I could do it all over again. I mean, my wedding day was zero-stress and so perfect (honestly NOTHING went wrong!), I just want a re-do in order to spend more face time and party with my loved ones, haha.
I am a few courses short of a certificate in Event Planning (and am halfway through my Bachelors in Event Planning), and have been surrounded by weddings non-stop for the past two and a half years. I find that more than ever, I still love weddings and want to continue being a part of them. I’m hoping to eventually work either as a wedding coordinator (independent or for a venue), or even get back into doing bridal makeup just to stay in the industry (I’m a licensed esthetician and have been doing bridal makeup and skincare for years anyway).
But as much as I am sad that the wedding day has come and gone, I’m VERY excited for the next chapter in our lives: starting our family!!!

I’ve been married for just over 3 weeks now and I’m in the same boat as you. Infact, I’m SUPER HAPPY that we didn’t go on a Honeymoon right away because its given me time to get over the fact that the wedding has come and gone, the planning is no longer and I have all of this extra free time and I’m sorta not sure what to do with myself. I also wouldn’t have been ready, refreshed and relaxed to go on a honeymoon right away either. Taking the time now after the wedding to get back to normal life, be refreshed and relaxed is the best thing for me and for us. The honeymoon after summer also gives us another big event to look forward to as well. The next day after the wedding, I actually had a little cry while my husband was still sleeping. I was taking everything in and the emotion just came over me. We spend 16 months planning our wedding and its a lot of time, effort, hard work and it takes over your life. It became a second full time job and I put my heart and soul into planning so its no wonder I became emotional…just like other brides out there.
