I am relieved to have our life back but also feel completly bizarre, I don’t know whether it’s jet lag still or a bit of a come down but I feel unmotivated, a bit down and extremly tired, does this wear off? I also keep picking at what was actually the most perfect day and picking out faults in it, obsessing over tiny things that went wrong and getting myself really down about it, is this just a weird post wedding stage I’m going through? will it pass?

@Hermoine: If you’re just nit-picking over the details of your wedding, then yes, that will pass. We get so hyped up over planning our wedding that it’s completely natural to feel let down once it’s over. I think the longer you have to plan it, the more let down you feel afterwards. I also think that because there are so many choices for things it’s very easy to look back and wish things had been done differently.
The whole wedding industry puts so much emphasis on “one day” and how it’s supposed to be perfect, that of course every day will seem dull in comparison! Plus, it’s such an emotional day that coming back down to earth takes time.
If your wedding day was July 6, I say give yourself some more time. I didn’t really have that let down because I started school again less than 2 weeks after we got married; I was so busy that I didn’t have time to think about the wedding. One of my friends, however, was pretty depressed, probably for a good 2 months after she got married. She felt like her life was dull and had become too routine. She got herself busy – she joined the gym (something she could do with her DH) and they planned more date nights now that she wasn’t bogged down with wedding stuff.
I think getting yourself busy will get your mind off things and allow yourself to look back fondly on your wedding.
