So my wedding day was the most magical day of my life. It was perfect from start to finish and I wouldn’t change a thing. Except, well… if I could do it all over again.
I’ve never been happier or more in love with my husband, but I’m so sad everytime I see wedding things. My dress, my bouquet, my garter, and even my wedding band. I had never felt so beautiful in my life, I had never felt so loved by everyone in my life, I had never looked forward to something so much before. I loved every seond; now it’s gone. All the anticipation, the nerves, the planning, the conversations, the events. It consumed so much of who I am…who I was. It’s surprisingly sad to let go.
All I want to do is look at pictures, share stories, and tell everyone about it, but I doubt anyone wants to listen. I think I need some pro-pics for a recap.
How do you get passed the post-wedding sadness. I can’t be the only one feeling it. 🙁

Hee hee, I’m not married yet, but I think you could possibly look into event planning if you love planning weddings. ;o)

@OnceUponATime: I felt it too. I planned our wedding by myself without the help of even one other person. My wedding wasn’t perfect & I had some small regrets, but ultimately I couldn’t believe the spotlight was no longer mine & life was supposed to return to normal. I was depressed pretty badly for about 2 weeks, & by 4 week I was finally back to myself again.
Getting the pictures really helps things to feel “wrapped up.” I still have my wedding dress hanging on our closet door though, and my husband keeps baggering me to get rid of it or do something with it.
I think the only thing that heals this sort of blues is time..

@OnceUponATime: I refocused on getting our home in order and my college studies. I put our wedding gifts away and reorganized our cabinets. I also painted and hung up some photos. I got a lot of decorating and organizing ideas off of pinterest. I found some pretty good recipes on there, as well.
We also got a new puppy. He has kept us busy.:-)
I think if you give it some time and get busy with other things you’ll feel better. It took me about 4 months to get settled and we’re still working on projects. To be honest, I’m still not completely “comfortable” but I’m doing better with time. If it took you a while to plan your wedding I think it’ll take a few months to get back in to a routine.
