Wedding depression

No one ever prepares you for the sadness that comes after a wedding. Seriously, I could cry every time I think about it being over. For two years, my life was all about choosing a wedding location, deejay, photographer and flavors of cupcakes. Every week, and sometimes everyday, I would makes decisions that would affect the happiest day of my life. Really, when you think about it, I was planning for the big day for 32 years. Every little girl dreams of her wedding day; if fact, I started pulling the pages of wedding magazines years ago, when I started thinking about what dress I wanted to wear. I always dreamed of walking down the aisle to a devastatingly good-looking man, who surely would be tall, dark and handsome.

I did all that, and it was amazing.... but now it’s over.

Now it’s back to the reality that I’m underemployed, living in a 660-square foot apartment, and have a ton of bills to pay.

Depressing, right?

Well, it would be if the end prize didn’t mean I have a fabulous man to call my husband. I truly hit the husband jackpot with him. I’m also pursuing a writing career and have one book written and another started. And we may not have the largest apartment, but it’s filled with a lot of love.

To everyone who made July 3, 2010 the most amazing day of my life--I thank you. After waiting my whole life, I thought surely I had created expectations that couldn't be lived up to. I’m happy to report the wedding not only met those expectations, it exceeded them ten-fold.


  1. I cried the whole night after our wedding and then when I woke up at the wee hours of the next morning to fly to our honeymoon I cried all the way to the that and I was also mourning the fact that I wasn't a little girl anymore, for reals. As if I already hadn't been but for some reason my wedding band symbolized that I couldn't call dad anymore if I needed fatherly type advice, etc. Such a drama queen I am! Anyway...I do have to say, after 6 years of marital bliss that it just keeps getting better. And the wedding doesn't even cover how awesome the "ever after" is! :)

  2. So glad you and Prince Charming are having the fairy tale. . .you deserve it!!!!
