I know people have posted in the past about feeling a bit down once their wedding is over because they don’t get to plan anymore and the excitment in a way has passed. I’m sure there are plenty of people who don’t feel that way after their wedding and instead are just so excited to be married. So I’m curious if the “blues” happen to only those who are so into planning and focusing on making the wedding so perfect, and not so much to those who didn’t put so much focus on the actual wedding day, but the fact that they were getting married. Do tell about your experiences! And if you did experience the blues, how long did they last?

But I fall into the just excited to be married group, I guess. I was not the “typical” planning bride (given my husband did most of the planning for our rather small, casual and intimate affair), nor did I have the usual well-planned wedding. We put together something very “us” in a short time frame, rather than devote months and many conversations to it!
It was amazing all the same and memorable, but to me the important part of the wedding was always the vows themselves, and the marriage we were entering into together with each other. That is what sticks with me most from that day.
So, no blues here. Married life for us was just as it was before-married life, pretty darn awesome. The wedding did not “change” the relationship or change how we related or lived, but we still felt a little different anyway in a deeper sense due to the vows we made to each other in a legal ceremony, and so that was exciting! We still each think it was one of the best decisions we ever made!

My life is SO much better than before Darling Husband came along… but I did have a bit of a “deflated” feeling once the wedding, and first month or so of constant congratulations were over. It makes sense since there is so much lead up and anticipation to the wedding, then POOF, it’s over.
