I wouldn't go so far as to call it depression but I did get teary on Sunday and Monday after the wedding and felt a little flat on Sunday! I go through stages where I feel fine for half the day then something will remind of the day and it will hit me that it's over and I feel like bawling. And it's always the smallest things that make you upset like I used the hand cream yesterday that I wore on the wedding day and the smell just took me back to the day and I started crying... so stupid, but the feelings are real and it's totally normal I think.
I just feel sad for those magical moments that I know I will never experience again! For me, the biggest one was those moments before I walked into the ceremony just spend with dad and I could see he had a tear in his eye.. the most special moments of my life and they are gone! but then I have to remember there are so many more to come and this feeling will pass!!
I am trying to fill my days with other things like making my own photobook with all the non pro's and focusing on my next project (I wish I could say that was TTC now, but we have to wait a little while), as I need to be planning something otherwise I feel lost.
But to answer, yes I have been feeling a little low now that it's all over....!!! Hope it passes soon!!!
This sums up exactly how I felt after my wedding. I wouldn't call it depression, but i certainly felt flat and a bit down in the dumps for a little while after our honeymoon. It's just such a change from everyday thinking about 'the most important day of your life" to nothing. And of course I adore my husband, and our marriage has been fantastic so far, but it took me a little while to get over the fact that the wedding was over.
And I was exactly the same about seeing the tears in his eyes, and thinking how special it was, and then after realising it was gone.
