Your wedding day is a complete whirlwind of emotions surrounded by everyone you love. For many couples you move straight from this incredible day, and hop on a plane to head to your honeymoon! Spending anywhere from a few days to a couple weeks in paradise as newlyweds is likely to be a dream. So its no wonder why coming how to your everyday ordinary life can be kind of a downer. If you’re feeling this way, don’t worry you’re not the only one! We have a couple quick tips to help you through this post honeymoon blues!
As I’ve mentioned coming home after the honeymoon isn’t the most glamorous of events. But you’re coming home as a newly married couple, so lean into that! Get adjusted to your new schedules and routines living together if this is your first time doing so. Having someone around all the time may be an adjustment in itself! Remember to keep a balance between your new married life, and your alone time as you navigate this new life together.
After having such an eventful few weeks, there will be a big lull once you get back into everyday life. But it doesn’t have to be that way for long! The purpose of this step is more to find something exciting for you two to enjoy together within the bounds of your married world. Go to a concert, have friends over for a BBQ, whatever the two of you enjoy, plan something fun for yourselves and make it important!
Relive all the memories by gong through all your pictures and videos from the last couple weeks! Take time to go through the wedding photos when you get them back. Choose some you want to hang on the walls, and maybe even print out a stack to create a wedding album! Don’t forget to add any personal photos you took on the honeymoon as well!
As you’re settling into your new life and role, don’t forget about the your other loved ones! Reach out to friends and bridesmaid that went along for the wedding ride. Thank them for all the time and energy they donated to you. If you are having a hard time adjusting to being married, share that with them! Like a spouse, a good friend will be there for better and for worse!
