not at the moment. i am in the middle of stressing out planning what should be straight forward. I keep second guessing every decision i have made too.

Got married a month ago. Kind of sad it’s all over, right? I felt the same way getting back to work. I am a planner, and I ALWAYS have some little project I’m working on. We are moving and buying a house soon, so that’s keeping me occupied. Other than that, I just try to enjoy my new life as a Mrs.! Congratulations to you.

I feel you! I did so much DIY so I feel like all my non-work or social time was spent doing projects, then it all stopped abruptly (for good reason of course haha). But yeah, a week after the wedding stuff was over I bought myself an electric piano because I always wanted to learn how to play and I was bored as hell! It’s been 3 months and I can play a MEAN “When the Saints go Marching In” haha 🙂 Pick up a new hobby! Something you’ve wanted to try for a while but have been too busy wedding planning.

My sugguestion is to always have something to look forward to in life, big or small. If you have nothing at all exciting planned in the near future..think about planning something.  It doesn’t have to be a trip or anything like that..but just some type of event to look forward to.  Always be looking to the future for exciting new things!

I totally did. I saw someone call it an “emotional hangover” and it’s totally accurate. For me, I was sad that we’d most likely never get all those people in the same place again. We had an intimate wedding and just loved being around our family and friends for that weekend. I still miss it every now and then, and am obviously still lingering on these boards even 2 years later 🙂 Congrats on your marriage!

I felt the same way!  The wedding day and honeymoon was such an amazing “high.”  We had the perfect day and just kept reliving it and talking about it for the next week(s).  Coming back to real life was tough.  I felt kind of down for probably a month afterward.  I also loved planning, so I had to find something else to do to fill the time I spent on it.  So that’s my biggest suggestion – find a new hobby, start a new book or movie series, etc.  And just remember that all of that planning and perfect day led to the best part – you are married!  Spend your newly found free time enjoying your DH.  Then there’s always the pictures and/or video to look back on when you need a pick me up! 🙂
