Ugh, I feel so down right now. We literally just got back from our amazing honeymoon, and all I want to do is go back. Now I’m home, the wedding is over, and I have a ton of stuff to do. Our apartment is a mess, wedding gifts and wedding supplies everywhere, which my family and friends just dumped wherever they could. My Maid/Matron of Honor watched my dog while I was gone, my dog was sick and she didn’t even clean it up. I have to give my dog a bath, wash all our clothes from the honeymoon, pay the bills, write thank you notes, go back to the job I have realized I hate tomorrow…. Why did the honeymoon have to end? Anyone else feeling the same?

yep— try going through your photos;) or do what we did- and sell a house, get a dog, and buy a new car- too busy to miss the wedding

I was really afraid that I would have major post-wedding blues, but I surprisingly don’t. Maybe it’s because the stressful parts are all over now. I don’t have to worry about who to invite/not to invite, how we are paying for everything, and which pictures get taken. Now I get to just enjoy the wedded bliss with my awesome husband and enjoy each other without the wedding stress.
Don’t get me wrong, I still have my dress hanging in my closet and I wish I could wear her again, plus I haven’t had the heart to put my wedding jewelry and accessories away yet (they are still sitting on my dresser). I still get a little jealous when I see girls who are trying on dresses–it feels like my shopping was SO long ago! And I miss our absolutely amazing honeymoon.
But you know what? Nothing can top how happy I am to be his wife. There will be other weddings to go to in the near future and I’m really looking forward to being a bridesmaid in a few of them 😉 I think that will be more fun and less stressful!

I am just finally coming down off of my wedding high and it kinda sucks. I’m trying to throw myself into new stuff, like planning Mr. LK’s birthday weekend, but he is not being helpful in that endeavor. Fortunately, one of my besties has a b-day only a few days before Mr. LK and she is game to let me plan a fun night out for us! Just find something fun to look forward to. It helps. 🙂

Yep I’m coming off my wedding high too. I’m pretty sad about it!! I just want to put back on the wedding dress and be a bride again!
Our first married Christmas is the only thing giving me hope right now!! I’m so excited I can’t wait. And then it’s our first married Valentines day!

I could have written this post myself. Wedding planning consumed my life for so long and now that’s its over, I don’t know what to do with myself. There was so much anticipation over the last few months and now I have absolutely nothing to look forward to. I almost want to get pregnant just to have something else going on (kidding… kinda, lol).
All of our wedding junk is still in the storage bins in our garage. I don’t have it in me to go through it all since I think it will just make me sad that it’s over. Waiting 2 weeks to go on our Honeymoon was definitely a good move for us since it prolonged the whole experience but now that that’s over too, it just sucks. I’d give anything to pack up and move to Bermuda for good.
I think my urge to plan something is really what’s killing me. I was almost to the point where I was going to throw together a surprise party for my MOH’s 25th bday this month but Darling Husband and our other friends agreed that it was too late (I would have had 3 weeks from start to finish). When that didn’t work I texted one of my other friends to see if she was interested in having a “sprinkle” since she’s expecting her 2nd baby in April. She told me no (she’s very anti additional baby showers). THEN I volunteered to handle my parents Christmas party that they throw every year but apparently they’re not doing it this year. Seriously, someone needs to give me something to plan before I start throwing “Happy Wednesday” parties.

@CaitMarae: Omg, I so know what you mean about almost wanting to get pregnant! I thought the same thing even though I know now’s not really the time.

Me and my fiancee’ took marriage prep classes (required by our church) we thought it was silly…but they told us so much of what to expect…things I hear from married people every day since the class ended…but I probably woudlnt’ have taken to heart had I not known these types of feelings were so common. The post-wedding blues were one of the things we were told to expect….that and wanting to kill my husband from time to time. =). We were told we should curtail these blues by planning a second honeymood…not 5 years out..but as soon as possible! We are plannign on doing just that…scheduling a second honeymoon a year out. It will give us something to look forward to while we settle in as husband and wife. Good luck!

@fresitachulita: We’re doing this to. After going to Bermuda for our Honeymoon we’re dying to go back. We’ve already started scoping out fights and hotels for our trip in May!

I love the second honeymoon idea! Ooh, I am so talking to Darling Husband (weird to type that! I’m so used to Fiance, lol) about it tomorrow. He’s got the blues too, that would totally cheer him up! Thanks!
