Hey other married ladies,
My wedding was wonderful, gorgeous, and fun. It happened Sunday though and I had no idea about how sad I would be that its over. On Monday as we drove away, I cried and cried (not sleeping very much the entire weekend probably didn’t help.) There was some joyous moments when I remembered that I was now married to the man of my dreams! But then I was sad again. My husband was very understanding even when I was sobbing. Now that I have to go to work today and he had to leave early to go to work too, I am even more sad since this is the first morning apart after the wedding.
I just want to remember everything about it and I can’t! I am hoping I said the right things to guests and I want to forget the mishaps. Basically, I am overwhelmed. So many of the details I planned, I couldn’t even take in. I will have photographs but no video.
Please ladies who have been here before, how did you get over this?

It takes time… my wedding was in August, and I am still getting over it!

This is definitely a slight fear of mine. There’s just so much build up until your big day and then BAM…it’s over. And all of your focus and energies needs to be shifted to something else.
I’m not looking forward to the days after…though we’ll be in Jamaica. But I’m sure it will hit me when we’re finally home.

I totally had it, and sometimes still do. I was really down in the dumps after the wedding and it was really bad until recently. I still get weird about it at times, though. Like when I went to SMP.com to check out Mrs. Cowboy Boots wedding yesterday… it was the first time I’ve been on SMP since my wedding over two months ago, and I started looking at all the pics and cried. 🙁 I never dreamed I’d be depressed after my wedding… I thought I’d be elated! I took the advice of DG and started focusing my attentions on something productive, raising my GPA, planning a kickbutt vacation, etc. It really does help!! And throw yourself into answering other girls questions on here… it gives you a sense of purpose because of the wedding, instead of feeling like you don’t have one now that it’s over.

I definetly understand how you are feeling. I was actually married in early October and the post wedding blues just hit me a few weeks ago. After we got back from our honeymoon we closed on our house a few weeks later, moved in which kept us busy and then before we knew it the holidays were here. Now I am finding that I have a lot of extra time on my hands and feel lost and almost empty. I hate being alone, which makes things difficult b/c this is a really busy time of year for my husband at work. I’m trying to keep myself busy and look forward to other fun things because I know that this is just the beginning of our life together but it’s hard when I feel so blah all the time.
Anyone have any good advise for us?? How long does this phase last??

I just threw myself whole heartedly into other tasks. I had a mild downturn that lasted a couple of weeks.
I worked on projects for other peoples’ weddings and started a couple of personal crafting projects that made me feel better. I worked on planning some dinner parties that made me feel better too.
Reaching out to friends is always helpful!
