We got married 4 weeks ago now, and I feel quite strange about it being over really.
The day was lovely, but I keep thinking about little things that could have been different (my flowers weren’t quite as I wanted, I walked too quickly down the aisle etc – nothing big) and I also keep thinking about how we could have had a completely different kind of wedding, and what that might have been like (we had a very small family wedding with no bridesmaids/groomsmen etc.)
I wouldn’t change my day, so I don’t know why these thoughts are even going through my mind to be honest.
I also can’t stop looking at wedding blogs.
We’re still waiting for our pro photos (should be soon!) and I’m hoping that once we have the proper record of the day, with hopefully some lovely pictures, that will help. At the moment I just keep looking through the photos guests took.
Can somebody please reassure me that this is normal, and just a reaction to all the planning? I don’t feel depressed, just a bit flat, like it’s such an anti-climax.

I got married 10/11/12 a little over a week ago. I feel EXACTLY the same way. There are little glitches here and there that I would’ve changed but nothing major. It’s just that the day went by WAYYYY WAYYYY TOO FAST……and I just wish I could have made the overall day longer to be able to take it all in. I def know how you are feeling!

Perfectly and absolutely normal (look at how many of us married bees are still hanging about!) I was married in May and am only in the last month finding wedding sites less of a draw. Getting your pro pics and albums done will help, and the little irritations will fade, I promise! You’ll see, you’ll post this same advice to another bee in 5 or 6 months 🙂

I planned a whole winter wedding in my head after my wedding was over lol. It’s normal. Getting the pro-pics helps. Also staying busy helps. Pretty normal though.

The post-wedding blues are very normal. We get these posts at least once a month, so rest assured that you are in good company. 🙂 There’s all of this emotional build-up leading to the wedding, and then we’re expected to go back to “normal” after weeks, months, even years of dreaming and planning and prepping. Sometimes it takes a transition period to make that adjustment. And the good news is that you can channel those energies into other things. The holidays are coming up. Maybe you could do a bit of home decorating for the season, or craft some homemade gifts or plan a holiday party? And don’t forget that you now have time to re-start hobbies that may have fallen by the wayside during wedding crunch time.

I wouldn’t say I have the blues, exactly, but I keep switching back and forth between being happy with all the great memories of our day and being sad that it won’t happen again. It was such a great day, and I get kinda sad that I can’t relive it.
But I’ve totally lost interest in wedding blogs, haha. I think looking at them would make me sad, so I’m not even tempted to. I used to read the WB blogs daily, and now I mostly am just on the boards. I just can’t muster the energy to care about the new bloggers, although I’m sure they’re great!
