In the aftermath of Mark and Sally’s (future BIL/SIL) lovely wedding, I feel surprisingly emotionally drained. Weddings are just so packed with heart-walloping meaning and jaw-dropping beauty that the downswing afterwards can be kind of melancholy. So for the past two days I’ve just been feeling kind of blue about regular, non-wedding-land life. At the same time I’m also feeling super-giddy head-over-heels in love with my Zach. Probably had something to do with that sexy suit he wore! Zach said he feels similarly drained but elated.
Does attending weddings of those you’re close to have the same effects on anyone else? Or are we just extra-susceptible to emotion since we’re in that crazy strange phase called “engagement?”
If I feel like this now, I can’t imagine how I’ll feel once our day is done! Thank goodness it’s still a ways off and we have lots of planning excitement ahead of us!
