@Hermoine:  Yup, I definitely felt like this. It was strange because I thought I would be super relieved and happy once it was all over because I was so stressed planning but I was just… sad.

I just started getting back into some of my previous hobbies that I had given up because I was spending so much time wedding planning. I was also up front with DH about my feelings and that I was really confused. I was like this for almost a month before I finally got out of my funk! Make plans with friends or family and try out some new hobbies. I really think that it’s important to fill up your time with activities that you ejoy!

@Hermoine:  I just wanted to write and give support. 

I think after any life transition there are lots of feelings…weddings, childbirth, graduation, retirement, children leaving home, etc…even starting/leaving jobs. 

Too many women are taught that after a wedding there should be completeness and finality. This is not true. It’s a new beginning. As with any new beginning, it’s bumpy and unknown. It’s not fireworks everyday. And it’s ok. Just allow your feelings. 


I discovered a website called conscious transitions. You might like it.

@Hermoine:  Hi – hang in there! I went through the same thing, surprisingly, and it lasted for alittle while but the key is to move forward and focus on married life and finding things to do that will fill that void. I know it feels like there’s this hole in your life now that you are not caught up with the wedding planning, so try and focus all that energy elsewhere.

For me i threw myself into focusing on all the other “projects” that I had pushed aside, like renovating some rooms in our house, then decorating it, consolidating my 401k and other retirement planning (boring but important), etc.  Like a previous poster mentioned, now that you are married, its a new beginning so you have to feel your way through it and keep yourself busy, don’t worry you will get out of your current funk. 🙂
