    Alright...well not so much depression..but emptiness?? I've been so sad the last couple of days now that things are OVER. I know its the beginning of our life together and I couldn't be happier about it..but just having no more wedding blues.
    Anyone else feel this way??

      I obviously have not experiences this, because we are not married yet, but I try to think this way in terms of a lot of things... There are always things to look forward to. Your life together, if you plan to have kids, travel somewhere, buy a house, a lot of different things. Plus, you are a newlywed! Don't worry, you will be okay!!

        I am not married yet, but I can totally understand what you mean. I can see that I will be upset when I don't have this thing to plan anymore

        It is something that you thought about (if you are like me) for many, many months and now it is over. Kind of like how kids feel after Christmas...it is just over.

        BUt like Joanna said, now you can get excited about being married and planning your life together :)

        BIG HUG!!

          While your wedding planning is over, you will have plenty of post-wedding projects to look forward too, trust me!!!
          It's been 6 months & I am still post-wedding busy! You'll have to go through all of your photographers pictures, picking out which ones you may want to put in the house & give to family, then you'll have thank you cards to do, wedding albums to put together, oh and let's not forget all of the paperwork you have to look forward to with your name change!
          I'm telling you, you think its over, but it's just begun! So take a breath now, relax and then prepare yourself for the other stuff thats coming!
          I'm sure you'll be fine though. Anytime you feel a little blue, just think about how all your hard work paid off since you had a wonderful wedding & how much of a great time your guests had. Then think of all thats ahead of you as husband & wife. Hopefully that will make you smile a bit.

            post wedding blues is pretty common. I experienced the opposite. I was so happy that it was behind us & a great memory. it was a relief to not have the wedding to plan.

            But, i was just as busy with the post-wedding projects of making photobooks & editing my wedding video.

            I was looking forward to being done planning the wedding so I could move on to new things. I started learning photography and I've enjoyed that a lot more than wedding planning. If I didn't start something new, I probably would have felt an emptiness. You get used to being so busy with a project. so why not start something new? it's a great time to start working on making christmas presents.

            once your pro pics come back you will be busy!

              I feel the same way Trish! Now that its over, I feel like I don't know what to do. I was always so busy with the details of the wedding, and silly as this may sound, I miss it!! I know our life is just beginning, and we will make other wonderful memories, but the wedding was so much fun, and now its all over
              we did have lots of fun today shopping though, haha!
