Guest Post: Megan from Butterfly Dreams 'N Things

Next up, we have Megan from Butterfly Dreams 'N Things. Megan and I obviously bonded over wedding planning (and my not so secret jealousy that she got to be done with the planning BS months before me and is now living happily ever after in her new home with her hubby!). She's super sweet and I'm sure you will love her too!!!

First off, I want to say Congratulations to K and Big A on their wedding! I am so happy for the two of you and I hope that you are having an absolute blast on your Honeymoon! Enjoy your time off from work and the time that you get to spend with each other.

When I told K that I would guest post for her, she told me that I could write about anything that I wanted. Now, I don’t know about you guys, but when someone tells me that, I want to come up with the funniest/most clever post ever. But of course, I can’t think of what that would be. Bummer! So, I figured that I would stick with something that I somewhat experienced, and that is Wedding Planning Withdrawals.
First, let me start off by saying that when I started writing this post, I was going to write it from a joking stand point, but after googling it, apparently this is a real thing and can really affect people’s emotions. Who would of thought?

You may not think about it when you are planning your wedding because let’s face it, most of us want to rip our hair out by the time it is done, but as soon as it is over, it slowly starts to creep up on you. So, I thought I would share with you, a few signs that you may want to start looking for once your wedding is over to ensure that you don’t fall into having Wedding Planning Withdrawals.

1. It will start with you trying to figure out what it is that you need to be doing, only to realize that you have nothing to do. You go for months with having this huge never ending to-do list, to not having anything to do, so you start questioning yourself thinking that you are forgetting something that you should be doing, when in reality you don’t have anything to do.

2. You will then become bored out of your mind because of the lack of things to do, which will then turn into you throwing your energy into other projects for your house and various other things.

3. You will start to wonder what else you could have done for your wedding. And even start to get jealous of others when you see an idea that they are doing for their wedding. Stay away from Pinterest for a while.
There are so many ideas on there and every time you see someone Pin something that they are thinking about doing, you just get upset because you can’t do it now, because your wedding is over.

4. You will want to help other friends plan their weddings because you miss it so much. Even though yours was enough stress to begin with, you miss it so much that you just have to help others with theirs.

If you are exhibiting any of these signs of Wedding Planning Withdrawal, it is highly recommended that you sit down, relax, and have a glass of wine (or two or three) and put your focus towards something else like a movie or a fun night out with your new Hubby or friends.

I’m not sure if that is what they really recommend, but that’s what I would do and it seemed to help me forget that I missed the process so much. Wine can do wonders I tell ya! I hope that I have provided some of you with some insight into something that is apparently a real thing, and hopefully all of you Brides to be out there can avoid this.

Congrats again to K and Big A on their Wedding! And thank you K for letting me guest post for you. I hope that you guys are having an amazing time on your Honeymoon!
