January marks a new year, but also the end of the holiday season, which can sometimes be a little sad. The post-holiday blues are real! As are post-wedding blues. You’ve been planning for and looking forward to your wedding day for so long, that sometimes when it’s over (while you’re thrilled to finally be married), you can miss the planning process and having something so exciting to look forward to. We’re sharing our top tips for beating the post-wedding blues below!
Beating The Post-Wedding Blues
- Accept that the post-wedding blues are normal. If you’re feeling guilty (Because you’re married right? Isn’t that the whole point?), acknowledge that you worked hard on your wedding. You can feel sad now that it’s over if you want!
- Your wedding is just one day of the rest of your life. You planned the wedding, now plan your marriage. How can you make your husband feel loved – day in and day out – like he did on your wedding day? What are your goals as a couple? Start dreaming about the rest of your life together and you’ll soon realize it’s just as fun, if not more fun than planning your wedding.
- Focus your time and creativity into marrying your styles into a cohesive home. If you got wrapped up in all the design details of your wedding, this will be a fun way to continue that creative journey. You can even include some nods to your wedding in your home decor!
- Reinvest in your friendships that got put on the back burner while you were wedding planning. Let’s be honest, your girlfriends will probably welcome an evening of girl time – without all the wedding talk.
- You’ve planned your wedding, now every event that follows will be a no-brainer. Is your husband’s birthday coming up? Host a dinner or cocktail party to fill the planning void. Talk to your families about hosting the holidays at your house and get excited about new events to plan with your loved ones! Put those new wedding gifts to use and entertain your heart out. Who says you can’t host a dinner party once a month?!
