Want to go back

Recommended Posts

So this week has been nuts for me with work & last night I was so sad because I miss our trip and wedding...it went by so fast and even though we had a great time, I SOOOOOO want to go back. Anyone else feel like this after they got home?

I haven't been yet -- but I am absolutely dreading this feeling when I get back! BUT I get depressed after getting back from all my vacations lol, so I know this one will be just as bad!

 

Any tips on how to enjoy the vacation? I'm going to try to take a step back and soak it all in as much as possible!

yes, yes, yes. I was unable to even go on the forum because I missed so much. And time flew by while we were there. It did not feel like there was enough time to relax. I hated being home again.

LOL.... I'm two years out and I still look at our pictures and want to go back! Honestly, I've been on a few vacations since but the wedding week is still the best time of our lives! It will be hard to get over and to top!

We haven't gotten married yet, but we just took a trip to Jamaica and got back last weekend. I'm so sad that we're back. I want to hold on to our "relaxed, in-love vacation time" feeling, and I can feel it beginning to slip away.

Perhaps I'm just a weirdo, or an eternal optimist, but....

 

I'm going to actually say that, REMARKABLY, I wasn't as sad as I thought I was going to be when we were preparing to leave Jamaica after our DW! I was CERTAIN I would be an inconsolable, hysterically-crying mess, but really I was just the opposite! I was just thrilled to finally be married and I was excited to get home and start the next chapter in our lives as husband and wife (even though we've already lived together for 4 years, something really felt fresh and exciting about coming home as a married couple!)

 

Or maybe I wasn't all that upset because I was just so nervous and worried about things going well before we left that I was satisfied with an incredible sense of relief that my guests had a wonderful time, and that it didn't rain for my ceremony!

 

Now, I'll admit that I DO still have a bit of "bridal-fever", I watch all the TV shows (and I'm embarassed to say that I even got a little jealous of my newly-engaged friend, since my experience as the bride is now over and hers has just begun), but I think it's TOTALLY NORMAL to be a little let down...I mean, how could you NOT be, right?!

 

We've all spent AN INCREDIBLE amount of our time, effort, emotions, and money preparing for this one huge event in our lives (sometimes focusing on it for 2 or more years!), and when it's over, it's sort of like, "Ok -now what? What do you mean I'm not so special since I'm not *the bride* anymore??!"

 

That is where BDW comes in and saves the day, because as a marvelous Mrs., you can still be a part of the bridal world by sharing your expertise, tips and tricks with the new brides-to-be, and it's like reliving your entire wedding experience all over again! Then, everybody wins! :)
