We had a GREAT wedding last Saturday. I’m in friggin Maui at the Four Seasons right now and I can’t help but feel down. I kind of just want to go back home. It’s gorgeous here, and the new husband is great. I keep looking at pictures of our wedding posted on Facebook and just get sad that it’s all over. There’s nothing left to look forward to anymore (and I mean in the immediate future not something abstract like buying a house and having kids). I will be going back to a job that I dislike immensely and to a place where the weather will soon be snowy and cold and it will be dark at 3pm. I could also tell my parents were really sad the day after the wedding when everything was over and all the OOT guests went back home. How do I get over this so I can enjoy what honeymoon I have left?

Maybe you could focus on a different project for a while. Do you have a house already? How about redecorating that? Will you be having kids? You could start planning for that.

Get off the computer. Stop calling home. Stop looking at Facebook.

you have your marriage to look forward to! you have your honeymoon to enjoy; enjoy it before you go back to work. focus on the good, not the bad. think of ppl who don’t have what you have (the good things); that always helps me put things in perspective. do something nice for someone to take the focus of of you. at least those are the things that help me. hope you can enjoy your honeymoon!

Maybe you could use your honeymoon time (while your away from the stressful job) to figure out your plan for getting a new job. It sucks to dread going to work… you definitely need a plan!
I’m sorry to hear that you are having the post-wedding let down. I can totally see how that can happen. I’m loving planning my wedding, so I would imagine I will feel bummed when it’s all over too!

@JennyW1: “Get off the computer. Stop calling home. Stop looking at Facebook.”
Ditto! I was just going to say the same thing. 🙂 Now is not the time to look back. Now is the time to look forward to what your marriage will be like! If you’re going to think about the future, think about having kids, Thanksgiving dinners, growing old together.
Passionfruit, you’re married now, how exciting is that!!! Wallow in the newness of it, because it wears off sooner than you think. Just be married. Marvel at being married. Tell everyone you meet that you’re on your honeymoon!
But definitely, definitely, definitely get off the computer and stop calling home. 😉
ETA: All of those worries can wait. They’ll still be there when you come home, and you can deal with them then. For now, let it go and don’t let it ruin your honeymoon.

Ps ~ there is always something in life to look forward to. A lot of time, love and energy went into your wedding. You are a married lady now!!!!!! Enjoy your time with your new hubby…talk about your future life together.
As far as the snow coming where you live, make the most of it!! Nothing like a walk in the newly fallen snow with someone you love….heading back home and snuggling while you drink hot tea…….
