sunshadebride :  I got married 3 1/2 YEARS ago and sometimes I feel sadness that it went by so fast!  Your feelings are completely normal.  I didn’ really have any drama leading up to the wedding, but we had a short engagement (3 months) so even though I didn’t have a lot of time to plan, I still felt some sadness when everything was over.  My husband and I have had some ups and down so far (all outside sources, like my dad passing away) and we just had our first baby in February so we’re definitely still adjusting to being parents, but I still get butterfilies when I see him wearing his wedding band.  I love it when he still calls me his “beautiful bride”.

Of course I look back fondly on our wedding but when I see some pretty dresses or flower arrangements I sometimes think that I wish I should have picked this or that instead.

Congratulations and enjoy your newlywed time!

Honestly, I was relieved that the wedding was over, because we were both pretty stressed about it.  We were really happy that everything went so smoothly and there weren’t many things that bothered me about how it went.

We went on our amazing honeymoon right after the wedding, so I think that helped.  It was tough coming back to reality after our 2 weeks in Hawaii, but that’s always hard to go back to work after a long trip like that.  It was nice to have so much free time though compared to before when we were planning our wedding.

We made sure to plan some fun dates, so we had small things to look foward to as well.

I’m glad you posted, I’ve been feeling the same. I got married a few weeks ago..it was a beautiful heartfelt ceremony with lots of happy tears but I also can’t stop dwelling on what went wrong (my hair and makeup, the flowers). I think from planning it so long it’s hard to swallow these disappointments. I’m hoping in time I can look at pictures and think they were beautiful and not cringe at my hair or whatnot…I hate that I’m robbing myself of this happy honeymoon period. I think I would just feel pure relief if it had been “perfect” but the glaring flaws are making it hard to move on. Sending you hugs, you’re not alone! Definite weird mixture of emotions.

  • Wedding: June 2017

I had my wedding on June 3rd and I definitely felt/still feel this way. I cried when we were packing up to leave for our honeymoon. We had an 18 month engagement so there was a lot of time leading up to the big day. It went by perfectly there wasn’t any drama but I just feel like it all went by SO FAST almost like I blacked out our entire day. I wasn’t drunk, I only had three drinks over the course of the day. But yeah.. now that we’re back home and everything is officially done, I don’t know what to do with myself. I’m glad you posted this so that I know I’m not the only one!
