I’ve heard this happens a lot! I’m in the “dreading the process” phase but could see how once the big day is over with you feel a void. Interested to hear what other married bees have to say!

As far as wedding planning, loved the dress shopping, shoes, bridesmaids, venue planning but the little details were no fun. I couldn’t wait for wedding day to come. Honeslty, happy I was finally married and can finally relax and enjoy the married life. Was a beautiful wedding and happy it happened. Now pregnant and my new planning is towards baby πŸ™‚ . So I guess my answer is no, I didn’t get the post-wedding blues.

I was very glad to have the wedding over with.  I felt like I finally reclaimed my life once it was over.

@MrsMaskatoBe:  This happens a ton, and it is sad, but think of all of the exciting stuff you have going on in your life. All of my friends have gone through this and the advice I got was to have my “next project” lined up for 2-3 months after my wedding. For me, it is a marathon. For you (if I remember correctly), it is a baby! So while you will be done assembling place cards and making invites, you can still help your friends with their wedding (the fun parts), decorate your nursery, and make a plan for your next big step.

I DEFINITELY experienced this. During wedding planning I couldn’t wait for it all to be done with, but then I had such a great time at the wedding and on our honeymoon that I seriously missed it a ton for a few weeks afterwards! I would daydream all day about the day, or play my processional song and our first dance song over and over, stare longingly at our wedding photos and the wedding flowers that were slowly wilting. *sigh* But eventually the feelings got weaker (thank god!) and I was able to get over the fact that it was over and just enjoy married life with my husband. Be happy that  you had such an amazing experience and look forward to all the other amazing experiences you will have together. πŸ™‚

Also! Going to other people’s weddings actually made me feel a little better, strangely, so maybe that will happen for you, too. πŸ™‚

I was afraid of this happening which I was one of the reasons we went for a destination wedding.  We celebrated for 5 days, then honeymoon. Then we had an at home reception a few weeks after our return.  So I totally avoided the post wedding blues.

Yes! I most definitely had the post wedding blues. I seriously felt depressed for awhile. I think it was about 2 months until I could actually look at our wedding photos and not be terribly sad that the day was over. It’ll get better with time πŸ™‚ I promise!

I haven’t dreaded anything about wedding planning so far and I can totally see myself feeling the same way.
