We all know what happens from the second you get the ring on your finger and he says those magical words…life becomes a massive whirlwind. From Wedding fairs, dress shopping; seating plans to venues; and flowers to centre pieces. Pinterest will become your best friend, and your life will revolve around ‘that day’!

If you’ve planned a wedding you’ll know what I mean when I say it takes over your life!

In my experience though, there are two types of brides. The ones who are massively stressed by every part of the planning, and the ones who are so laid back they just go with the flow without any drama.

Whether it’s been 6 months or 2 years in the planning it’s all been building up to this one day.

So the day is here, you’re sipping some fizz with your favourite people whilst being beautified ready to wow the man you’re going to vow to spend the rest of your life with. You’ll have an amazing day and everything you’ve worked so hard to plan will come together and you really will have a day to remember…but what happens once its over?

Will you feel different? Will you feel married?

Will you feel different? Will you feel married? (questions every newly-wed will be asked). I for one did feel different, I felt complete. Like I’d waited my whole life for this last piece of the jigsaw to come along and finish the picture. I was ready to start the rest of my life and get back to normal, without having to worry about anything wedding related.

For some it’s not so easy. They love planning and fairytale so much that they get the wedding blues once its over.

It’s been a massive part of your life for so long you have to re-adjust to life without that focus. But it’s not all bad, you still have your photos to look forward to, a honeymoon and spending time sifting through cards and gifts!

So don’t be sad that its over, be grateful it happened and treasure every moment from your special day!

Did you have the wedding blues after the big day? Did you feel different once you’d say I do? We’d love to hear from you!

    I was on cloud nine after our day but after our little mini moon the wedding blues really kicked in. I absolutely loved every minute of planning our wedding and never stressed about anything, even the morning of our wedding I had no nerves whatsoever, I wanted to enjoy every second and there was no point in worrying about if anything was going to go wrong. Our day was perfect but the weeks after it all I could do was think this time last week, this time 2 weeks ago etc, I’m glad to say we’ve been married 5 months now and the wedding blues have gone we have our lives together to look forward to and we have our memories, pics and DVD to look back on, I’m lucky I got to marry the man of dreams but I would do it all again tomorrow
