I was a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding about 2 weeks ago. She’s been back from her honey for over a week now, and I’ve tried getting in touch with her a couple of times, but haven’t really gotten a response. Obviously I know that she’s busy and all with post wedding stuff, but I feel a little left out since before the wedding we saw each other multiple times per week. Is this normal post-wedding?

It all depends on how busy she is – did she live with her fiance before the wedding or are they just now moving in together? She’s probably still unpacking from the honeymoon and trying to get back into the swing of things – I wouldn’t worry too much about it.
Just keep trying to contact her and let her know that you’re there to help out with her settling in if she needs it! Hopefully she’ll get back to you soon. 🙂

I know for me, the several weeks following the wedding and honeymoon, we were crazy busy!! It was hard to get back into the swing of things, un pack, write thank you notes. I wouldn’t take it personally. She’s probably got a lot on her plate right now.

@Candy_Nee…same here. I had a hard time adjusting back to the swing of things after the wedding too. Lots of things went on in the weeks after I got back. Going back to work, writing all the thank you cards, drama with my BFF, my mom ended up in the hospital with pneumonia, and that led to just a general funk of REALITY after such a wonderful week and a half.
I definitely wouldn’t take it personally.
I like the suggestion of letting her know you’re there if she needs any help. You sound like a good friend.

I would definitely not take it personally. I am sure that if she wasn’t living with her husband before the wedding, she is already in the moving process, and if she already was, she is busy with family functions and just getting everything in order and squared away so they can start their lives together. I am sure she will come around soon, just give her a little time, and everything will be okay! See if she wants to meet you for lunch sometime within the next week so you two can catch up. 🙂

Okay, I feel reassured. I mean, I didn’t want to disrupt her life or anything, but was a bit worried about her being isolated (but from the sounds of it, she’s probably too busy to think about all that stuff – I hadn’t even though about the thank you notes and all that). And they did just move to a bigger place last weekend and I already did offer to help out. So I’ll wait for things to calm down on her end, and her birthday is coming up next week so I’ll call her then and see if she has time to hang out.

If she’s like me she’s running around changing her name on everything she owns, writing TY notes, figuring out what pics she wants, paying any vendors that were not paid before the wedding, etc. And if she is moving they are probably working on consolidating stuff (we found out we owned 7 veggie peelers, 6 frying pans, etc when we finally moved in together — a lot of stuff went to Goodwill). She’s not ignoring you, she’s “nesting”.
