I am not depressed at all that I am married. In fact, I am so happy! I am not stressing about what life is like now that I have a husband etc…
What has been making me cry is that I can’t wear my wedding dress and I will never get to have a wedding again! I had a fun wedding, although I wish some things went differently, but it was still a great wedding! But there is this really unsatisfied feeling when I think that its all over forever… (The wedding that is! I keep thinking of ways I could of made it better)
Is this normal? Has this happened to you or someone you know? I am a little worried to talk about this with people.

I think it is normal, check this other board about being depressed after your wedding.

@ThePinkTyrant: omg. I can so relate to you. I got married in October and I’m not lying here when I tell you that I cried off and on ALL DAY the day after our wedding because while I was happy, I was SOOOOOOOOOOOO upset it was all over. Here I am over 4 months from our wedding and I am still experiencing issues off and on.
It was just such a happy, joyous emotionally wonderful day and everyone we love was there and finally together all in one place. And in my head is…we’ll never get that back…ever. Thank god for video clips and photos!

I think it’s totally normal, and part of the reason that people plan honeymoons for right after the wedding!! I think that helped a lot for me, to get out of town right away! Congratulations newlywed!

I think this is a normal reaction to spending the majority of your time planning for one single goal in mind, then there is nothing afterward. I haven’t looked at the issue with weddings in particular, but I know it happens with people for other things I’ve worked on (they feel a little lost/goal-less afterwards). Maybe start planning for another goal to help with it?

I have a feeling that I’m going to be the same way. We’ll see, though.

i know the feeling! i didnt know what to do with myself after i got back from the honeymoon – but i was super excited to use my new sewing machine – and i’ve gotten into baking a little bit since i got the kitchen aid…so those things have helped keep me busy after work when i would have normally jumped into something wedding related.
another thing – i havent posted any photos on facebook (though other people have) and i havent done my recaps on the bee either. i’m waiting until the time is right so i can re-live it all again.
i tossed around the idea of getting some girlfriends together for movie night in our wedding dresses haha.
i’m also really happy that i have 3 other weddings to go to this year and we can finally attened as husband and wife 🙂
those things have helped me from completely breaking down and getting upset.

I had a pretty big post wedding depression, but luckily the honeymoon came along a day or two later. However, then I was sad when we had to come home 🙁
I was so sad because I had such an amazing wedding and honeymoon and wanted to relive them all over again. And I felt like the wedding was such a day of love all around!
It’s VERY normal. When you think about it, it makes sense because you spend so much time, energy, and money on the wedding and look forward to it so much and then, in a blink of an eye, it’s over.

Awwww…I’m so sorry that you are feeling this way! I would certainly imagine that it is totally normal though. After all the anticipation and all, it’s pretty sad when it’s all over. Hopefully you will get your pics back and be able to re-live those special moments of your wedding day whenever you need to and get excited about your future with your husband.
