cls9q:  Pretty much everyone I know who is married has gone through that phase, and even though I have encountered quite a few bumps in my planning process I expect the post-wedding sadness to hit.

Now you get to get back to ‘normal’. Establish some new routines and traditions before you move onto the next phase of your life. 🙂

Congrats Mrs!

cls9q:  I actually really enjoyed planning my wedding as well! But the last two weeks of planning, I was ready for it to be over with. I’m actually really glad that the whole thing has come and gone!

I’ve been married 5 weeks, and I miss parts of the planning and all the anticipation too.  I’m having a blast settling in as newlyweds, but I’ve now focused on new goals and plans like our next vacation or decorating the house. It helps knowing there’s always going to be something to look forward to together.

Many wives slip into post wedding blues. It is very normal and common. All of that anticipation and the high of your special day have worn off and now you are back to your regular life. 

Enjoy the newlywed phase with date nights and spending time together bonding.

cls9q:  Because of all of the issues I’ve wished most of my ‘planning time’ away. haha. I wish we would have eloped when Fiance suggested it!

But, I know the day of everyone will be happy and it will be ‘perfect’ and I will try to relax and take it all in!

I got married about 5 weeks ago and I think because we got married right before two major holidays, we haven’t really gotten that post wedding sadness.  I also don’t really know what the sadness is supposed to come from.  Is is from not being the center of attention anymore, not receiving gifts, not having something to look forward to? I don’t know.  Either way, we don’t have it.

I have post-wedding boredom. I did so much DIYing that I was always busy with some project or another. Now I have nothing to fill all my spare time. I need a hobby 🙁

I think it’s just like with any major event or milestone. You build it up and look forward to it and spend lots of time and effort to make it perfect and then it happens and it’s just over and you kind of get deflated. You don’t have anything immediate to look forward to or put tons of energy into again. People aren’t fawning over you anymore or sending you expensive presents or throwing you parties or giving you money. It’s just kind of a back-to-earth process. So I do think it’s normal, even if it doesn’t happen to everyone.
