Post-Wedding Blues

Post-Wedding Blues
June 27, 2014

The gifts have been opened, the thank you cards sent and you are not being bombarded with phone calls, emails and texts.  The big day is over. You are no longer spending every waking moment thinking about or planning details for your wedding. The excitement and anticipation is gone and now a sadness and melancholy has settled over you. Sound familiar? 

You have what is commonly called the “Post-Wedding Blues”

But don’t worry! It's very and natural to feel this way after an exciting event. For months and weeks you had something to do; decisions to make, places to be and were surrounded by people who were there to share your happiness and assist you with your every wish and whim. And now it’s over!

Luckily, there are many ways to keep that newlywed thrill long after the wedding day has passed. Here are just a few tips to chase away those post-wedding blues:

Relive you Day through Pictures

Look through Facebook and Instagrams and any place where friends and family may have posted pictures of the big day. It can be fun to see your day through the eyes of your guests. If you've received the pictures from your photographer, look through those and pull your favorites to create gifts or albums for your parents and close family. Get a few of them printed hang in your own home while you're at it!

 Start Planning Something New

Start thinking about planning for a future event. Whether it's a vacation, second honeymoon, a party for a friend or a dinner party, having something to look forward to will help you kick those blues.

 Have a Romantic Dinner

Set the table for two and bring out the champagne flutes that you had at your wedding and toast to your new life. Try out new recipes that you received from friends and family, or find something in those cookbooks you received as wedding gifts. Don't forget to add a little romance to the occasion with lighting and some of your favorite music played at your wedding.  

 Help a Friend

Know a friend or family member getting married? Offer to help them with the planning, invitation-stuffing, favor-making or errand-running. Just being there for emotional support can make them feel supported and help make their day extra special.
