So I’m finally taking the plunge back into the world of blogging after 4 months off… It’s so hard to pick back up again even though I have loads of crafts to tell you about! First, let’s talk about the wedding. Oh, the wedding. It was really beautiful; the registry office was gorgeous, the house was pimped up and the food was divine! I feel cheeky saying this as we did most of it ourselves, but we did do a pretty good job. It rained all day long, which only seemed to make the wedding all the more cosy as we all had to fit into the little house. We had big plans for the garden of course but the rain scuppered them so we moved the whole do inside.
Our photographer Anete Lusina was the most perfect photographer we could have ever asked for and we were even featured on And So To Wed with an article that sums up our day perfectly. 6 months worth of careful planning and frantic crafting came together into one truly perfect day.
Regardless of whether you are having a 200 person blowout in a castle, or a small intimate affair at home; weddings take a lot of planning. Ours took a bit less time; we only planned it over 6 months. But I am now I’m at risk of the post-wedding blues. After so much effort, planning and (in our case) DIY-ing it can be a very depressing drop in activity once the big day is over. All that organisation, all those projects and suddenly all you’ve got to occupy your time is binge-watching on Netflix… Ok, so that’s not necessarily a bad thing (in fact it’s the first thing we did) but I do like a project to fill my time.
So what do I do now? Crochet? Too hot, not in the mood… Decorate the house? It sure needs it… Do the garden? It really really needs it… Come up with a new craft to sell on Etsy? I suppose I could… To be honest, I expected to fill my time with blogging and crafts for the blog but getting back into that working routine when the house is still full of wedding supplies is rather difficult.
So now I need to drag myself out of the post-wedding blues… but I feel like I could be heading straight towards project fatigue! Too many possibilities and too little time or money to be able to do them all!
Have you ever had the post-wedding blues? How did you escape? What kept you going?
In the meantime, I’m off to Pinterest for some inspiration:
