Fighting off the post-wedding blues

Are you worried about wedding withdrawal? What are your plans to fight off post-wedding blues? Will you plan a 1st anniversary party? Work on putting together your wedding album? Arrange a trip together? Write your vendor reviews?

    I鈥檓 a full time teacher and it has been a lot of work so far to plan our wedding. Our wedding is just over a year away. I think for us afterwards will hopefully be planning our honeymoon a few months later and then trying to have a baby! Well be together for 4 years by then and hoping to start our family before we hit 30 lol

    Same!! I've even had people tell me that we should put it off for atleast a year due to the cost of the wedding. We might not financially be able to afford a baby and did we think about that. 馃槺 I was so shocked!! Do you know my finances?! Did you know that the wedding will be paid off in full? no, then shut it! So rude.

    Our plan is to have kids! Haha. We are hoping to be pregnant with our first roughly 4 months after the wedding. We will have already been together for 11 years, and living together for 5 1/2 years, so we don鈥檛 really need 鈥渘ewlywed鈥 time. We鈥檝e both wanted kids for a couple of years now, we just decided to wait until after we were married. So, kids is our next step.

    We are going on a 2 week honeymoon straight from the wedding, so hopefully that will be a good time to decompress. Then I'll have reviews to do, thank you cards to write, and wedding photos to look through.

    I'll probably visit this site from time to time as well... share my wifely wisdom... haha.

    I'm struggling with this a little now since I got married last month. I just finished writing reviews, and I enjoy writing on here to help others with ideas or things that worked/did not work for mine.

    I do have my honeymoon to look forward to though, which is in three months! After that, I get to do all the name change stuff, since I have to wait for the marriage certificate. Then, I'll either be over the wedding stuff or find something else to occupy my time with

    I go back to work for about 2 weeks after the wedding and then we leave on our honeymoon at the end of the month. After that, we will hopefully be planning to buy a house and/or babies. If not, then I'll definitely be planning a trip lol

    I'm not worried because a month after our wedding I'll be back to school, then 3 months after our wedding one of my dear friends is getting married, so I'll have that to be excited for Smiley smile

    I have been worried about that. I'm on day 4 since my wedding and i've been ok. I'm back at work today which is helpful. We have our honeymoon coming up on 2 1/2 weeks and then it will be photos to go through. I'm someone who always keeps busy and has the next project on the horizon so i'm hoping i won't get hit with any blues.

    I didn't experience any post-wedding blues luckily. I went back to work 3 days after my wedding and just carried on. I did then start planning our honeymoon a few months after.

    I鈥檓 a little worried about this after I talked to another bride who said she cried when it was all over Smiley sad But we have our honeymoon to look forward to the month after our wedding so I think that will give us something to look forward to as well as our wedding photos and videos. We also want to build a home so I think we鈥檒l be pretty busy again after the wedding!

    We have already had our house over a year now, but after the wedding we will start focusing on upgrades/renos and possibly getting a second dog! Also, I am glad we chose a spring wedding so that we can enjoy our summer after
