Regular poster, but I want to be anon for this post.
Our wedding has since past, and as beautiful and fun as the day was, I can’t bring myself to do anything related to the day or weddings in general. Opening gifts, talking about it in depth, and looking at pictures/video…I get sick to my stomach. I planned this wedding solo for over a year, and that caused me a lot of stress and what I thought was a bit of depression.
Because of that, I thought I would have been relieved when it was all said and done because of that, but it’s the opposite. I am more depressed than I was before the wedding. I don’t have a history of depression, and this is the first time it has crept into my life.
I guess I have no point of this post. It was a mere vent. I am pissed that a lot having to do with the wedding makes me so ill and depressed.
Thank you for reading.

I’m sorry hun. 🙁 I’m sure that I’ll be the same way after the wedding. It’s almost like…you hype it up and up and up and up for a year, and then in 4 hours, it’s over. Just remember that you had an awesome wedding, now have an amazing husband, and start planning other new and exciting things! Do trips with your hubby, plan girls nights with your friends…kick butt at the gym…volunteer…try to see if you can find something else to do to keep yourself busy. Hang in there!! 🙂

It really does kinda stink when the wedding is over. I remember being a little sad on my honeymoon because it hit me that I would never be a bride again, I didn’t have my wedding to look forward to anymore, and as much as people enjoyed my wedding, they were over it. lol It didn’t help that it went by SO fast! It was such a fun blur, but I found it difficult to stay present since there was so much going on and it was so surreal. I got over the blues by thinking that our wedding was the first day of the rest of our lives together. I tried to enjoy being married and being a newlywed. It also helped to plan dinner parties so we could use all of the awesome things we got off our registry.
Don’t worry, you are def. not alone, and it DOES get better.

I think the feeling is normal. You can get depressed because you are so stressed over every detail of your wedding day. But after the day has passed you dont realize that the wedding planning did take up a good amount of time. So those time slots are empty now so you get more depressed. I think its just something where you need to keep yourself occupied and be happy you got to marry your hunnie 🙂 It will pass but Im so sorry you are feeling this way.
