We just got married 3 weeks ago and since then I've been trying to not be overly critical of how our wedding turned out. but it's proving to be more difficult than i thought.
Let me first start out by saying I LOVE my marriage and I am so happy to finally call my best friend my husband. We've never been happier in these past 3 weeks and we are loving married life!! but when I look back on the day, the conclusion I keep coming to is that everyone had a great day except me. It sounds so silly and yet here i am. I call what i am feeling the "shoulda coulda woulda's" because looking back there are so many instances during the day that i think "i should've done this differently" or "if we could've just...." or " i wish i would've...". It doesn't feel like post-wedding blues, just more of being overly critical/unrealistic expectations/perfectionism. It was a good day it just doesn't feel like it was
'the best day". however, it was "the best moment" of my life; when i exchanged vows with my husband. now THAT was like out of a fairytale
so am i the only one who feels like this? I thought i'd post something here because i feel like i can't talk to anyone else about it. The people I'd talk to are hubby, my sis, my mom, my bridesmaids... but they all had the best time of their lives and when i try to talk about how i feel, i think it takes away from their experience. I don't want to shatter their memories of the day with my bummer feelings ha.
let me know if you've felt the same or similar, it would be nice to know it's not just me and it's not the worst thing!
