@pengoala said I didn’t come on here for a bit as it reminded me of what I missing out on but not long after and now it cheers me up helping others with their weddings.

I had a lot of mixed emotions, some being a little sad that it was all over but mostly just thankfullness it was over and happiness at how it all turned out. I just fill my wedding planning time with cooking and finding DIY  projects for the house. I like the quote (don’t remember exactly) but ” I want to have a marriage more beautiful than my wedding” Remember what the whole point of the wedding was for.. You will always be HIS bride so focus on that now:)

@lisabula:  I had a friend who went in to severe depression afer her wedding.  Part of the reason was that she had blown it up in her mind to be the MOST amazing day of her life and went totally overboard in the planning…3 showers, 4 different gowns, 2 receptions, a balloon release by all the guests…it was intense!!   Real life certainly pales in comparison when you’ve spent a whole year planning such an extravaganza

I remind myself every day that after the wedding is over, it’s back to reality!!!  That way I won’t be let down when it’s back to “What’s for dinner honey?” and “Where are my blue pants?”  LOL!  🙂

I have a peppered past with eating disorders and anxiety, and following the wedding was probably my deepest dip in years. I actually started seeing a new therapist a month after the wedding because I just couldn’t shake it!

I think it’s totally normal to feel let down…but dont feel jealous of anyone else. You did your wedding the way you did because you loved it!

I was way too stressed out the most of the time i was engaged, planning for my wedding. I was told by many that I should just enjoy myself. It was hard to do so…I think it is bound to happen that you may be stressed out or regret certain things that you didn’t or did do. but my advice is…make sure that you get great photographers and friends taking LOTS of pics – and just make sure to let go of everything on the day of the wedding..

I am feeling a bit down after a week of my wedding because my family is far away and they just left, but I do think that you need to focus on the marriage, which is much bigger and more meaningful than a wedding day.

cheers to all the newly weds out there! 🙂

lisabula :  I’ve seen MANY women go into wedding planning after their own wedding if they really enjoyed it and missed it. 

Personally, my inlaws were goddamn nightmares screaming at myself and DH for the MOST trivial things repeatedly, threatening to not come to the wedding, etc and we call it the “worst times of our lives” because of their abuse. I felt SO much lighter after the wedding and it was pure bliss to take the time that was spent for wedding planning on myself.
