Beating The Post Wedding Blues…

‘Bridal Blues’…

So, the wedding is over. You’ve spent months, possibly years, planning, meeting guest demands and keeping on top of a million different suppliers; Now it’s all over…sounds like heaven, right? Sure, the stress has been alleviated and you’re over the moon to be married, but at the same time you can’t help feeling a little bummed that all the excitement, organising and being ‘The Bride’ is over.

I’ve been there and got the t-shirt so thought I’d try to help by passing on a few suggestions to beat the blues…

Don’t feel guilty…

It is perfectly normal to feel sad that your wedding day is over!! You’re entitled to mourn over something that your life has been focused around for the past year, and feeling a tad emotional doesn’t make you any less happy to be married; Just ensure your new husband/wife knows how you feel. Chances are they will probably feel the same!

Find a new hobby…

Whether you’ve discovered a new found love for planning weddings, or realised you’re actually pretty good at crafting, throw yourself head first into it. It will keep your mind occupied and make sure you’re busy. You never know, it might even lead onto a new and fun career change!

Date nights…

Couples time is important in any relationship but now is the perfect timing to make sure you schedule regular date nights. It will give you something to look forward to and remind you why you had such a spectacular wedding in the first place!

Don’t have wedding regrets…

I have no doubt this is something we’ve all done. The “I wish we’d done that” or “Their colour scheme is so much better” feelings will pop up and you need to shake them off! There will always be things you wish you’d included but just remember, your wedding was unique to you at that time in your life. You may feel differently about it in a few years, but your wedding was exactly that…yours.

Take a break…

Coming back from an amazing honeymoon and settling back into reality can also be pretty deflating, so why not plan your next break? It doesn’t have to be a spectacular holiday with all the bells and whistles – just a mini break to give you something to look forward to as a couple, or even with all the family.

Throw a party…

For me, one of my favourite wedding memories was the party! Having all our favourite people there, singing and dancing the night away…you just can’t beat it. Okay, so it might not be on such a big scale, but get as many of those people together and have a mini party, either at home or out on the town.

Get your photos printed…

I should really take my own advice on this one… Don’t leave your wedding photos as digital files on your computer! Get them printed out and pop them into a beautiful album, or chose your favourites to frame on your mantelpiece. You will never get bored of looking at them and neither will your friends and family!

Remember your marriage is more than your wedding…

Sure, weddings are awesome but just remember the reason you planned it in the first place…to get MARRIED! See this time as the start of things to come – date, love, decorate, cook, laugh; Whatever you like to do as couple, keep doing it to the max and enjoy it!
