I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO grateful that the wedding is done with and I don’t have to deal with stupid little details that neither I nor my guests even noticed on the damn day. I’m married to the love of my life and we can move on with our lives now! So no, no wedding blues here. Just happiness and thankfulness that I no longer have to plan and I can start my new life.

@Soon2BeeMrsG:  I can’t comment personally since I am not married yet, but I think it’s all in how you approach it.

It sounds to me like you probably won’t have have post-wedding blues. I doubt I will either… we want to do something very simple (elope). I just want to be married… all I really care about when it comes to weddings is the rings and honeymoon lol.

I think it’s the ladies who planned their wedding since they were little girls and who LOVE all things wedding that get the most upset. I think it’s only natural… that huge build-up to being princess for a day, and then it’s all over so quickly. I can see how some people get caught up in it.

Girl I’m not even engaged and I’m so over wedding planning, LOL!! All the details and coordination and money and drama…. ugh. It overwhelms me to think about. I really just want to elope…

I thought I would be depressed when it was all over, but honestly? I was just relieved. Happy and relieved.

I found the last month of wedding planning stressful. I’m happy it’s over 🙂 No wedding blues here!

Haha YES! We got married two weeks ago, on the sixth. I am so so so glad it’s over. I felt just like you do now, about a month out I was sick of it all. I gave up on everything and just enjoyed the time I had. and now i’m loving life without all the hectic planning and crazyness, pretty sure my husband does too!

We’ve been married for a month yesterday and I couldn’t be happier the wedding planning is over. Our wedding day was pretty much perfect, all the hard work paid off, but I’m just enjoying being married. No blues at all.

LOL, I did not get the blues for one minute!  We ended up having an amazing wedding, but it is just SO much WORK.  And stress.  By the end, I was so sick of dealing with all the random things that I actually broke down in tears once saying “I don’t want to make ANY MORE DECISIONS!”  Fortunately, my now-husband was amazing and supportive and got me through it, but man!  The only feelings we’ve had are happiness to be married, and relief that we can just live our lives now 🙂  Sooooo the polar opposite of blues lol

I was looking forward to no more planning and stressing over how everything would turn out.  However…I did feel a lil down once we got back to AZ.  Don’t know if ours being a destination wedding (in Florida) contributed to that because I always get a lil blue for the first week after coming back from an awesome vacation.  But this was like that x10.  However…my wedding was less than 2 weeks ago and I feel fine now.  We aren’t taking our honeymoon until March so I have that to look forward to as well(we haven’t even started planning it, just know where we are going and when). 

 

 

So for me, I don’t miss the wedding planning, I think I just miss that day.  I spent the past year with the wedding in my mind everyday in some way and now it’s over.  So that is an adjustment, even though my wedding ended up being perfect(well pretty much, but perfect for us). 

 

Have a gameplan for after the wedding. Start thinking of things you want to do but are just too busy to do now cause of wedding planning.  Make a list of those(even if it is something simple like a list of books you want to read).

I took a nice long hiatus from all things wedding after returning from the honeymoon.  In fact, I haven’t even called the cleaners to see if my dress is ready yet.  It’s nice to have so much time for other things in life.

Didn’t miss it.  It’s been so nice to just be married and live a normal life for these past 5 months.
