Haha it’s funny — I also got married on 6/22, and recently made a post about the similar sort of post-wedding blues!

It’s still kinda hard but getting easier. Maybe partially because my husband and I are trying to have a baby, so that’s a whole new thing in our lives to start looking forward to haha. But I totally still miss all the wedding planning and excitement! 🙁 It sucks being back to “real life”!

May I suggest NOT finding a new project in which to bury yourself? You’ll just end up in the same situation and create a cycle of ups and downs depending on what’s going on in your life. If I were you, I’d look into cultivating a practice of mindfulness meditation. The general idea is to become fully appreciative of the present moment. Also would highly recommend the book “The Untethered Soul” which explains mindfulness in very accessible language. It shouldn’t suck to be “back to real life”. Real life can be pretty glorious – we’re all just on auto-pilot and miss most of the little wonderful things in our day (making big events like weddings some of the few times when we’re fully present).

We got married on 6/21 And I feel the same way! I’m happy to be done with planning, but the whole day went by so quickly! We got our pics back this week and we’re waiting for video. We can start making a photo album and then have ppl over to watch the video.

YES. Extreme post wedding blues, we got married 5/19 and I am still finding myself down about the fact that’s it all over. I mean it’s normal right, you spend so much time planning, all the pre wedding events, the excitement, then the lead up and then the day itself (which goes by SO FAST.) It sucks and is VERY real.

I was super depressed after I got back from my honeymoon. I’d been planning and looking forward to that trip for years and then it was just over.

Yes (5/4). I feel like I’m just coming out of it and then I look at our photos to pick for the album and am reminded that I put my dress on incorrectly and I don’t think it looks good.

jemmlove12 :  yes. I had adjusted it in a way that it looks too low, at least for me.

I have underlying anxiety and I ended up extremely anxious and a bit depressed after the wedding. I spoke to a counselor who told me that the stress of the wedding was similar to a major stressor (like a breakup, job change etc) – even though it’s a positive stress it’s still significant. Thankfully those feelings blew over with time, and now I’m super happy and relaxed.
