Ya I think theres always gonna be somewhat of a letdown after something so big and amazing and exciting has passed. Try focusing on enjoying married life and being newlyweds. Plan trips, host dinner parties, do some minor home renovations together or plant a garden. This too is an exciting time! Best of luck!

  • Wedding: June 2010

@birdie love — I was afraid I’d sound ungrateful or something saying too much about how let down I felt the first (several, yes I admit it) months after we got married last June.  But it’s true.  I guess I liked the planning and all the fuss, and when the wedding and reception got underway, I didn’t want it to end.  Plus, I love big trips out of the country, our honeymoon, so coming back from all that and returning to work and all was quite a letdown.  I think Skipper’s suggestions are real good about having dinner parties and all – I thought of that, inculding to show off all our pretty new things (hehe), but at the same time, I was drained from all the planning! Make sense?  I found what helped me through it was going through the 750 photos and putting together albums, getting some blown up, etc.  I got to relive stuff that way and ease into ‘real’ life.  As we approach our first-year anniversary this weekend, I can finally say we’re adjusted! But I promise – it doesn’t have to take anybody else as long as it took me!

i think its totally normal to feel that way. i certainly did!  i think it just has to do with the fact that you spent all that time planning and then its over in one day!  i agree with JoeBeth12, after organizing and going thru all my pro photos, it helped to kind of relive the day, but also put it behind me.  have you got your photos back?  i would love to see them! (especially since we were dress twins!)
