The lead up to your wedding is one of the most exciting times of your life, however many brides do not prepare themselves for what is to come after they say I Do.
Excitement and joy surround the bride and groom on their wedding day, but after the event there may be feelings of sadness, emptiness and uncertainty of what to do next. Many couples organise a holiday, but some may decide to do things a little different, due to work commitments or other factors that surround their life. No matter what you decide to do, it is important to avoid feeling down and flat after the big celebration.
Post wedding blues is common for many brides, and I am not ashamed to say that I was one of them. Having so much to organise with a hectic and intense schedule, it is normal to think ‘what next?’ when it all stops.
To avoid post wedding blues, use your time to catch up on lost sleep and take up hobbies that you may not have been able to do whilst planning your wedding day. Whatever you decide to do, take some time to pamper yourself; whether it is having a massage; going to the hot springs for the day or staying at a hotel for a night just to reflect on your special day. Whatever you decide to do, it is important to listen to your mind, body and soul, as well as to reflect.
You can always relive your wedding day by looking at your photos, watching your wedding video, and talking about those special memories with those who spent it with you.
The biggest thing to remember is that your wedding day is not the end of something, but only the beginning. You are now starting your life with the man you love, your husband! Take the time to savour all those happy memories that you have created and avoid any post wedding blues.
