I don’t really have any advice for you as I’m not yet married, but I’m worried that I’ll have the same feelings after my wedding. After most major events I always feel like I haven’t “enjoyed” it enough. I don’t even know what that means myself! But just know that you’re not alone! But I really like the list of things you’re thinking about doing – especially the memories. That may help you think of all the good things of the day, and whenever you’re having a down and out moment, you have something to look to.

@fireflyfig:  You don’t mention photography or videography, so I’m not sure if you had either, but for us, those played a HUGE role in the post-wedding letdown. Although to be honest, I didn’t suffer too much of that. I was mostly relieved to have it off my shoulders (the planning, that is). 

 

But seeing the photos brought everything back to life. Then a few weeks later, we got our wedding highlight video and it was crazy how much it brought us back to the moment. And just this past weekend we received our full wedding video – over an hour long – and we sat there basking in the same glow we felt that day. 

 

I hope you had at least photos. If so, then don’t even sweat the blues – just get excited to see them!

@fireflyfig:  

 

NI was married 3 months ago and loved every moment and truly 100% feel I had the wedding of my dreams and even better. So I’m not sure if I can help though I do feel a little sad its all over… 

It’s helped that our friends are still talking about the wedding and reallly did so a month after. My husband and I also spent that first month visiting with friends/famly (guests) and it helped to have the planning for these get together and then moments to talk about the happy memories. 

I wrote very detailed thank you notes for everyone which was also great. And whats really helped has been my pictures and videos!I also recently made photo books for my parents and still have another to make for my husband’s parents so in a lot of ways the wedding fun is still continuing.

Most of my friends are single too and I’ve really made myself available to help anyone with wedding planning. Never unsolicited and never too pushy but ust there to show people my wedding binder and templates in case they want help. Maybe for you coming on here and talking about things you wish could have gone differently may help?
