Is anyone else having trouble moving on after the “BIG DAY” is over? Do you want to relive all the good moments and get rid of all the mistakes?
Do you get mad at yourself for certain things that didn’t go as planned?
Have you made others sad that you weren’t thrilled with every aspect and cheery right after? Sometimes it makes me feel better, but other times worse.
I have been going through a tough time… it has been two months. If anyone has had that feeling for longer than a couple of months, what did you do to get out of it? Was there any kind of conclusion you came to that helped you?

Yes, I did. I’m so sorry you are going through this, but, please know that many of us have been there, and we truly understand.
I started writing a long response for you, but I think it will be even better if I just post this link for you. I and many other bees shared our disappointments from our big days. You may find comfort in reading some of our stories!
It WILL get better with time!

@Brielle: Thanks for reaching out. I appreciate it! I looked at the posts you recommended. My life changed virtually overnight when I got married, but did not expect to nitpick the best day of my life. Especially over things that really are no big deal. It makes you wonder if Katie from the Royal Wedding had a regret or two – smaller wedding? Anyways, when I focus on the meaning of the day, I feel much better.
Hope other Bees realize when they fuss and nitpick over all the details that they they cannot will or force sheer perfection on the big day. There will be stress, happiness, awe, exhaustion! (no particular order)
