5 Tips for Beating the Post-Wedding Blues

Image via pinimg.com

Wedding season is winding down, and if you got married this summer (and threw the most epic party of your life) you might be feeling a slight case of the post-wedding blues. Here’s how to beat ’em.

1. Take Some Time

Remember, it does take some time to get back to normal life. You can’t just spend months planning the biggest party of your life and not feel sad it’s over.  Anything that’s been a big part of your life is difficult to let go of once it’s over. It’s totally normal to take a few days to get used to normal life again, but only allow yourself a certain amount of time to feel sad. 

2. Talk It Out

Chances are you’re not the only one feeling this way! Check in with your husband/wife to see if they too are feeling down. Not only will opening up to your spouse get some of those feelings off your chest, it’ll bring you two closer in the first few days/weeks of your marriage. In addition to talking to your spouse, talk it out with your closest friends or family. Whether they helped plan your wedding or can relate because they have been through the post-wedding blues themselves, having a good venting session with your besties can cure anything! You can also search the good old Internet for gals that are going through the same thing. Believe it or not, post-wedding sadness support groups do exist!

3. Take Your Mind Off of It

Get involved in something new! Remember all of those things you weren’t able to do when planning your wedding? Now’s your chance to do them! Head to a yoga class, sign up for pottery, or grab that book you’ve been meaning to read all year. Focus on the little things in life that you can do to make you happy. It’s just like a breakup, keeping your mind and body busy is the best way to keep the blues away.

4. Don’t Compare

As soon as you start scrolling through the ‘gram comparing your dress to someone else’s Vera Wang number or getting location envy over your high school friend’s wedding in Antigua, we urge you to put your phone down! Remember that your big day was beautiful and perfect for you! Focusing on what you could have done will only cloud how amazing your day actually was. While you’re at it, resist the urge to pick up any bridal magazines for a bit. Unless you’re a wedding planner, you don’t need them!

5. Spend Time with Your Spouse

…after all, you are married now! Enjoying your first year of married bliss is the best way to keep yourself from thinking about your wedding. Now is your chance to do couple-like things without having your upcoming wedding to distract you. Have weekly/monthly date nights, cook together, or start a new hobby. Building your life together post-wedding is a great way to distract yourself. Whether it’s hunting for your first home, thinking about planning your family, or finally getting to travel with your husband/wife, there are a ton of big life moments for you to look forward to!

So. Many. Colors.

Happy Memorial Day

Dreaming of the three day weekend that is quickly approaching? Wanting to sneak out even earlier on Friday to get a jump start on the holiday weekend? For many of us Memorial Day means school is out and summer is in and we get to spend the day with family, friends and no work! But, before you head out to your BBQ we need to remember what Memorial Day is all about – remembering those who served and made the ultimate sacrifice to allow each and every one of us to have the freedom to spend our days as we want with the ones we love most.
Being in the wedding industry and loving all things “wedding” we know how special weddings are and Military weddings really touch our heart. There is something so touching about witnessing two people in love who will sacrifice precious time together as one or both serves our country. So, in a tribute to all those in the Armed Forces, we thought it would be perfect to share some of our most fav photos from military weddings/engagements – a day when those who serve get to spend time with the ones they love most, as we will be doing this Memorial Day.

Let Your Light Shine

When you’re getting ready, and you catch yourself looking good, you HAVE to snap that selfie. You know the best selfie requires the perfect lighting, right? Well the same goes at the wedding. The perfect lighting sets the mood, ties in your theme, and creates a romantic and intimate setting. And if it just so happens to make all your insta pics flawless, we know you won’t be mad.

We find that when discussing decor, the mention of lighting is hardly ever a major topic. But move over 2015 wedding trends because it’s 2016 and wedding lighting has “lit up”.

Have your lighting and peace of mind…our Mojuba Wedding day emergency kits are full of amazing products and you won’t even need a filter!

Everything’s Coming up… Succulents

We love flowers just as much as the next girl…send away! But when it comes to our current crush on succulents, they could give a fresh dozen roses quite a run.  Maybe it’s the fact that some of these cute little guys can fit in the palm of your hand or that they require way less TLC…either way we can’t get enough!

From centerpeices to the wedding bouquet there is no shortage as to how you can incorporate succulents into your wedding day. Still a huge fan of roses, peonies and hydrangeas? Succulents pair perfectly with wedding flowers. They add a whole new level of floral design and create a stunning texture to any bouquet or centerpeice. Take a look at some of our fav ways to style succulents for inspiration and get to pinning!
