Hi everyone! I’m very new to being a Member on WeddingBee, although I definitely looked at some posts during my engagement.
I’m hoping to find some support and similar feeling women to help me out! I just got married on the 2nd of November, and moved away to my husband’s town where he’s in school. I’ve been so sad the past couple weeks, and I feel just awful about it! I feel like I should be joyfully celebrating being a newlywed, but I’m alone in a new place, and away from my only family.
On top of that, there were SO many problems and hiccups on my wedding day! I feel like everything went by in a blur, and I didn’t even get to enjoy it. I find myself waking up thinking about the upcoming wedding, and then getting extremely depressed when I remember it’s over. It was NOT the perfect day!
Any suggestions, advice, or similar stories?

@hollycastillo83: I think you just have to see it from a different perspective: the wedding was one day, you get to spend the rest of your life with the man you love so there’s really nothing to be sad about. Unless you have some sort of time traveling device, you can’t go back and change things. Maybe go for a vow renewal in 10 years?

The wedding was one day, and for most of us it is only perfect because we made the best of the tough situations. There were a few hiccups on my wedding day, but I didn’t let that deviate my mind and heart from why I was really there: to marry the man I love.
Moving is a huge deal. I would attempt to look for a job if you can work or volunteer somewhere. Perhaps pick up a new hobby or start nesting. If you just moved, do you have pictures you can hang up or things you can do like that?
It’s tough right now, and post wedding blues can be normal, but you can’t have that day back. The only way to relive any monent of that day is to remember your vows and cherish your husband and the time you have with him.

@hollycastillo83: You’ve moved away from your family, but you’ve moved in with your new family – your husband. Focus on how awesome that is! I moved away from my then-bf (now FI) to a new place all by myself. Things could be a lot worse… just remember that.
