Life after 'I do': what's next after your wedding?

Life after 'I do': what's next after your wedding?


Published 30th Oct 2017

Swerve the bridal blues by giving yourself 'something new' to focus on after the big day 

 

Fact: getting married is one of the biggest events of your life. The emotion, anticipation and excitement that go into planning and executing your dream wedding - from research and budget-management to negotiation and delegation. It's a big deal - but what happens next?

Yes, life goes on (obviously) but it's not surprising that many brides can feel a little, well, flat after they've swapped their vows. Yes, they've just married the love of their life, and are about to embark on a life of wedded bliss - but after that incredible build-up, it's all too normal to have a '...what now?' feeling afterwards.

To tackle the bridal blues head on, you need to give yourself something else to focus on, whether big or little, important or insignificant. But regardless - something you can sink your teeth into and give your attention to.
