    Ugh – I am not a very public person and HATE being the center of attention – so I dread having even more than 10 people at my wedding – I think we might just elope with maybe a couple witnesses – I really hate planning – esp. big events unless I am the cook/host. I like to be busy and I don’t like to constantly have to entertain people. I will gladly help others – and be the “behind the scenes” person to make sure everything runs smoothly. I am a brides dream come true – but personally I can’t stand all the attention. I will not have the wedding blues, I will be relieved that it’s over and I can live in peace with the man I already consider to be my husband.

    After 6 months of marriage I STILL have the post wedding blues! I think its mainly because I didn’t get the day I wanted and everything turned out so terribly I regret almost everything about it, especially how much money I spent!  But I knew I would miss the the “engaged” status and wanted a long engagement before I was even married so I knew I would get the post wedding blues anyway because I missed having to look forward to the day.

    OMG is that why we were both feeling a little bummed during the first day of our honeymoon?! We could not stop talking about how great our wedding was, and couldn’t shake this weird sadness.  Got over it in a day though, the Galapagos will do that!

    I was fully expecting to feel the ‘wedding blues’ because I’m definitely one of those ‘high highs and low lows’ people … but nope, still happy 🙂 


    When we got back from the honeymoon I basically hit the ground running, just keeping myself busy and my life full of purpose. We bought a house earlier in the year but I never got to appreciate it and put my energy into it because of wedding planning, but now that the wedding is over I can kick back and play Suzie Homemaker 🙂

    While I really enjoyed planning my wedding and doing all the projects and I wish I relive the day over and over again, I don’t have the post wedding blues. I got married about 2 1/2 months ago. 

    What has probably helped is that I am really busy at work and we are in the process of trying to purchase a house. So perhaps having an equitable distraction helps.

    that sounds like a good sign:) i was soooo happy my wedding was over and do not want to do it again. there was soooo much stress, problems, family drama, and money involed that im sooo happy its over with. I was so overwhelmed by everything though (now i did shed a tear or two at my wedding but) when i got back to the hotel our wedding night and all was said and done. we were lying in bed about to sleep and i just cryed my eyes out. everything was just soo much to deal with and finally here i was a wife and maybe it was all the relief too. but i let it out then.no one told me to expect anything like that or post wedding blues.

    we dont go on our honeymoon till our eight month mark.
