Hey everyone! So my wedding was Thursday and I’m feeling some serious post wedding depression our wedding was just like I’d imagined and perfect in every way but it was over SO fast! Didn’t help that as we were packing up and leaving the hotel, another wedding party was moving their stuff in. Is anyone else in the same boat?? What have you done to cope??
I've heard of this happening bc you spend so much time and energy and then there is nothing to look forward too. Start planning something else like your honeymoon or one year anniversary trip or your celebration. Do you have your new home organized and such? You just need to keep busy with things that are productive and interesting
We immediately bought a car... then a house... then went on our honeymoon... we move into the house in a month (6 months post wedding, it was being built) and then I’ll have landscaping and decorating to occupy myself. Hubby has expressed concern that I’m going to run out of things to do. 🤷🏻♀️ I just am always into the next thing and maybe once the house stuff settles I’ll lose the post wedding weight I put on.
Anyway my advice is really just to focus on more aspects aspects of life. What’s the next step for your marriage? Is it kids? Then focus on health. Is it a house? Get your finances in order.
I’ve been married 7 months now and I still Have them sometimes. I try to focus on new things but I miss it. The planning the excitement wearing my dress everything! Like I legit get sad about it still. So unfortunately I don’t know how to manage it well myself yet but I’m glad I’m not crazy lol
It can feel like it's just slipped through your fingers when it's so temporary... but it won't be too long until you've got your photos back to look at, honeymoon souvenirs, all the after-the-date stuff that will last you forever!
As others have said, a new project to work on really helps, especially if it's something directly related to married life like a family holiday or redecorations. Hosting your first dinner party as a married couple with friends/family or people who couldn't be at the wedding might be a fun way to relive a little more celebration.
Mine was May 19 and I feel the same way! It was a completely perfect day and all of our closest friends were there. Last week we went to another wedding and while I was there I cried because I missed mine!! 😂 And going through decorations and putting things away isn't helping. I think when I get some of the professional photos back it will help a lot. I really like looking at our guests' photos and remembering little details from the day, but we asked everyone to not take photos during the ceremony so I haven't seen anything from that. It also helps to talk with my husband and our friends about the day and how fun it was! Mostly I miss the attention from people, which is weird because I'm very introverted... but who doesn't like feeling like a princess?
Find something else to look forward to! I had the blues after our long engagement and wedding, and to get out of it, I immediately threw myself into planning our next trip together. Give yourself something else to look forward to. :-)
We immediately went on our honeymoon for a week the next day after our wedding, so that helped delay the blues a bit. but when we came back it definitely felt bittersweet! But I was so happy to be married, don’t get me wrong! we just had our first anniversary and looking back at pictures makes me feel so nostalgic! We actually went back to the hotel we got married at, it was amazing! I loved planning and our wedding so much so I definitely got the post wedding blues! So what generally helps is keep yourself busy working towards a new goal together! but know you’re definitely not alone!
