My wedding was May 22. I thought in the following weeks after I would go into a “blue” stage and feel depressed that my big day has come and gone and now I’m just a normal married woman. But honestly??? The day after I felt releaved! I havent been feeling blue at all and kinda happy its over. I loved my day but I realized I spent wayyyy too much time trying to make it a fairytale. It was no where near a fairytale and many things went wrong even though I had my day planned out and written in stone.
Its not that I’m disappointed in my wedding. I’m just…realistic about weddings now. But hey, as a bride to be dont we all deserve to have that crazy, wonderful, bitter sweet time of being totally controlling while our minds are filled with perfect wedding days???? It was great while it lasted girls. But WHEW! I dont think I could of taken anymore “wedding”!
Any ladies feel the same????

I feel relieved too!! I LOVED my wedding, we had the best time, but I am so, so happy that it’s done and I don’t have to plan/think/obsess/stress about it ever again! Woo-hoo! I’ve already started purging all of my wedding magazines and left over paper, etc. and it feels good to get it all out of my house!
Seriously, the wedding was great, but being married and returning to normal is the BEST!

Definitely feel the same! Not sad at all that the day is over, just happy that I can think back to it and smile. Pretty cool to hear our first dance song on the radio, and again just smile about it.
I should have known that everything would turn out fantastic regardless, and just relaxed and enjoyed the preparations even more.

My wedding day was pretty much perfect but I was so glad when all the fuss was over. I didn’t really enjoy the whole planning thing so much. Some of it was fun, but I’m such a fretter that the last two weeks were a constant freakout. Thank God for my sister and Maid/Matron of Honor, who got me through with sanity intact!

My day was perfect, I never felt like I went overboard with anything and I didn’t regret any decisions, but I was very much relieved when it was over and I didn’t have to think about it anymore. It was really like any other big event, you look forward to it and enjoy it but it’s always good to be able to say it’s finally over and you can think about other things now. Although 6 months later I’m still on WB so obviously I enjoy reminiscing, thinking about weddings, and trying to help out other brides 🙂

So glad it’s over! We hated the wedding planning process because it felt like it was all we did outside of work for 14 months. It is only now that I am finally relaxing and not feeling like I still have to worry about more wedding decisions. We are still tying up the loose ends like thank you notes and trying to find places to store our gifts, but it is wonderful to have our nights and weekends back.

Haha I absolutely loved my wedding. And I loved the crafting I got to do to go along with it. But it is nice not to stress about money or other people 🙂

I’m actually a little nostaligic when I think about it. I wish I could do it over again is slow motion. The day when so fast that I’m afriad I miss something… even though it was the most incredible day of my life. Even my dad said he wished we could so it again since he feels like the day flew by (without him spending another 30K of course!)

I’m SO ready to be done with thank you notes, unpacking gifts, and paying wedding bills! I loved my wedding and had a great time, but it made my family go a little crazy and I’m glad things will soon go back to normal.

I’m about 4 weeks away and I cannot wait for the wedding to be over with. I hate talking about it when people ask, I’m sick of all the details, and I’m sick of dealing with my mother. I got a huge budget, but it came with many strings. As she says, it’s “her” day, not mine. I can’t wait for this BS to all be over with and then get my life back.

I was definitely relieved and happy when it was all over because the marriage is the most important part and I couldn’t wait to start. All the planning was a little stressful at times so when the wedding was over, I physically shut-down and vegged. No blog, no WB (sorry), and no talk about the wedding. It was GREAT!
The wedding was everything I could of imagined but it was so nice to have my life back.
