lisac24 :  it’s ok bee, I hear this is common for the wedding day to fly by and to have to post-nup blues! Try not to beat yourself up about what you could have or shouldn’t have done. I’m assuming you got a photo package, you will be able to relive the night then with Darling Husband and your bridal party. If you got a video package that’ll be even better, but if not you can always make a slideshow and set it to your favorite song. 

Cheer up, bee. In the mean time you can ask for pictures from your friends. That’s probably what I’d do.

lisac24 :  This is SO common and something I’m mentally preparing myself for

We had a long engagement, so we have had the wedding on our minds since April 2018. Then, it’ll be over, and then it’s like….what even is regular life anymore?

But, for us, we decided to be proactive and are staging the transition back to work

So it’s Wedding – Vanuatu for 10 days – Margaret River (3 hr drive from home) 4 days – home 2 days tor recover – back to work 3 days – weekend again

Don’t feel like what you’re going through is anything usual. Every single person we have spoken to have told us to make sure we take the time to stop and think during the wedding, because it will just fly by. Most don’t remember everything on their wedding day. It’s supposed to fly by, because you’re doing so much!

It gets better!!

Side note…drinking too much is something that’s weighing on my mind too. Not that I intend to, but I know I will likely not eat much, and I tend to always need to be drinking something when the attention is on me. It’s weird. If I’m in a meeting, I always have a coffee or water bottle on hand and it’ll be empty by the time the meeting’s over. I know at the wedding I will likely do that with champagne! I just gotta switch it out for water.

Also, bright side, at least you vomited outside the venue and not over your dinner in front of everyone so small wins for silver linings

I don’t have depression but the sadness hit me harder than I expected once it was all over! All those months planning… and spending…  Overall I am glad I danced and ate enough, and we also chatted with people as they walked in.. I am so grateful my mom didn’t drink. Very glad. But I’d have to say the 1 thing I regret is my brother feeding me shots (apparently), and I ended up puking all night. Ugh, embarassing. I am so glad we had a couple sober friends to help take our stuff home, including the leftover cake! I can’t thank them enough. You have to remember the POSITIVE things! For me, it was perfect weather. And we had our amazing mountain photos. And the cake was beautiful. Everything was timely.. etc

What I am hoping combats that feeling if I have that happen to me is looking forward to the next new fun thing we are doing together. For us that is planning and taking our Honeymoon, and starting to TTC. Those things are also super exciting and i cant’ wait. So look forward and find some next goals and steps to work toward that you are excited about.
