PWD (post wedding depression) was a real thing for me. It was mental/emotional as well as physical. I was exhausted/mildly depressed for about a month after my first wedding. I think its kind of unavoidable – you put all this energy and prep in leading up to this one HUGE day… and then it’s over. Your brain needs time to recover and learn to be normal again.

I did. We went on our honeymoon 2days Later and were gone for  14 days. I got sick with the flu (in July!) the night we got home and was sick for a week. So it was a good 6 weeks after our wedding before I finally felt back to normal.  Luckily, I have summers off so going back to work right away wasn’t an issue.

YES totally normal.  I had people in town for a few days, but the last person to go was my Dad.  When I dropped him off at the airport and got home… crashed for 12hours. I think it’s the excitement and you don’t really sleep well working up to the wedding.  We put our honeymoon off too, and I’m glad because I would have  been pissed being at some tropical location all inclusive and slept for 12 hours there lol

I just got married last weekend and I’m feeling the same way so far.  We took off Monday and Tuesday and the rest of the weekend has really been dragging.  We have so much set to unpack and put away for the wedding.  And I really want/need to do my thank you cards.  That way my last wedding project will be my pictures.  But so far I’m just exhausted!!!  Exhausted with wedding stuff. Lol

@jlhardy4:  After my first wedding, I was tired and had my period for a month. You are coming down from the stress and excitement, I think. Of course, something else could be at work here… a medical condition of some sort…
