    I get you and I’m not even married yet 🙂 One of my really good friends from childhood is having this huge 300+ person wedding, in our hometown with all the people we grew up with, and I am GREEN about it!  I love our wedding to be, an intimate destination wedding, but  I still wish the pastor whose known me since  I was 2 could marry us, and I could have all these people I’ve known forever be there…

    Anyway, I get you 🙂

    I am sorry you are feeling down, it happens to the best of us at one point or another.

     I guess the only advice I can offer is to focus on what you absolutely loved about your wedding day & why you chose to do what you did in the first place.

    With the excitement of the holidays around the corner maybe you will be a little distracted and maybe that will help to take your mind off things.

    @Mrs Grape: LOL! I used to do that all the time! I was like Captain Re-Arranger.

    @Mrs Grape:

     

    I’m already feeling that way and I haven’t even married yet. There is a lot of stuff I have to compromise and I can’t help but get a little down when I see these big beautiful weddings… 

     

    Do you know what I just keep telling myself…?

     

    There’s always a 10 year anniversary. Its a total do-over and I know personally, we will be in a way better financial situation because my fiance is getting his Phd. 

     

    Take time to be sad, then buck up because we all know that those little things aren’t really what matter. (even if it stings a little)

    I had bad post-wedding letdown after my wedding.  The day ust comes and goes so fast and afterward, it’s like you have nothing to plan, nothing to keep you busy, and you aren’t in the spotlight anymore as an engaged women.  I’ve been married almost a year now and I promise–the feelings do fade as time passes!  I’m to the point now where I’m just enjoying being married.

    I am almost 100% sure I will feel the same way.  I am so addicted to our wedding!!!  I know when it comes and goes I’ll be looking around and twittling my thumbs.  Copy and paste this comment and keep it in a safe place bc I will most likely need it after my wedding is over.  Ha!!  Mrs. Grape, you know I love you and have been following your entire wedding process.  So I was just as into your wedding as you were.  Especially since it was so different, I really wanted to know how it would turn out.  Don’t compare your wedding to your friend’s.  Her wedding is her’s and a reflection of her and your wedding was YOU and your sweetie’s.  I’m hoping my wedding is HARDLY similiar to anyone else’s.  That’s actually the goal!

    But you have to think, yes it’s the end of the WEDDING, but only the beginning of LIFE w your hunny.  There is ALOT to look forward to!!!

    Seeing how I didn’t have a traditional wedding, just a last minute out of the blue trip to City Hall for a marriage license as DH called the JoP and I called our parents and sibilngs on the drive to City Hall to let them know where to meet us.  Reception was taking the family out to dinner at our favourite restaurant.  We didn’t even make reservations for that! 

    Since there was no planning and it was so sudden and unexpected, I don’t have wedding envy!  I think I have more wedding relief … glad that I don’t have to go through the stress and craziness that my friends have/had to go through in planning their weddings!  Plus, I think it helps that we’d been together for 9 years before getting married and when the wedding/reception/short honeymoon was over, we had our kids to come home to and life just remained the same for us.
