@ArmyWifey8.23:  I still think of my wedding all the time. There are little things I would change, but it’s over now so i try my best not to dwell on it. I still have my dress hanging in my bedroom and secretly long to take it out of the bag and wear it around the house. I (semi) jokingly told my Darling Husband we should get dressed up in our wedding attire and eat a fancy dinner at home for a date night. He laughed and while it was a bit ridiculous, I LOVE my dress so much ans wish with all my heart I could wear it again.

Getting in the wedding industry is a great idea. You can look for jobs in so many areas…flowers, make-up, dress shops, as a consultant, planner, at a country club or other type of venue that does weddings frequently. There are so many choices and girl, I don’t blame you one bit!

@ArmyWifey8.23:  Right after our wedding, I was so relieved it was all over. The post wedding blues hit my Darling Husband first and then it hit me about 2 weeks later – we missed our wedding. We missed planning it! Totally normal. πŸ™‚  And yeah, well, a year and a half later, I’m still here on WB! πŸ˜€  I am constantly living vicariously through all of our new brides to bes! πŸ˜€

I love everything DIY wedding, which I guess is why I’m still here after being married for 7months.  If you want to get into the wedding industry, maybe you should start by working part time at a bridal shop or utilizing you’re talents in that area.  Maybe you’re an awesome baker, maybe you create awesome stationaries, maybe flowers are your forte!  Whatever it is, maybe you have inadvertently found you’re calling…

@LovelyLaura:  Lol. My SO has told me that he wants me to dress in my wedding gown on our anniversary for a date night. XD (I don’t think he was joking though….)

@goldie.girl:  

ITA.  The best way to go would be to gain experience in your field, ie working as a consultant in a bridal shop, working with a florist,  etc until you are familiar with each aspect of the wedding biz and you have developed lot of contacts.

Which part of wedding planning did you enjoy the most?   The least?

I had post wedding blues alright!!!It got to the point i talked in my sleep and “said” horrible things about my husband (went to see a therapist for it!). BUT eventually the passed Laughing and i got busy with the photo album, the photos we wanted to give some relatives, i am redecorating our living room..plus i am pregnant!So a lot to think about.

I thing those blues lasted 2 months. Felt really weird, but they did pass and so will yours! Having something to distract you will help!

I got it for about a month after our honeymoon. I was a really terrible person, and I am glad that time has passed. I got a better job that kept myself busy. Now, we are working on buying a house and then a dog, AND enjoying married life! Lots to focus on!

You could always “stay in the wedding world” by seeking out a position with a local wedding coordinator, contributing to wedding blogs, working for a florist, getting a job at a bridal shop (DB is always hiring consultants…), or anything really!

Married 3 months, and I have to really work hard to not look at wedding-related ANYTHING.

I loved my wedding the day OF, but as the pictures rolled in and real life became, well, REAL… I started to think “Oh, we could have done THAT” or “If only…”

It also sucks that my husband and I (mostly me) have put on some weight after the wedding. I know there are studies that indicate we’re in a happy relationship (yay?) but this just compounds to my Post-Wedding Blues. We had a tiny budget, so a honeymoon was out of the question, so we had to snap back to reality pretty quickly. I know it’s just a phase and it’ll pass.

In the meantime, I’m hoping to get started on some kinda project to take my mind off of the Wedding That Was, and keep moving forward!
