SO OVER: THE HONEYMOAN PERIOD
The ‘honeymoan’ period is when, after the nuptials, the bride experiences an inexplicable low because her ‘big day’ is over. It’s a travesty that the honeymoan is ubiquitous enough to become a recognised social phenomenon.
It’s characterised by a lot of complaining about all the time the bride has on her hands now that she isn’t single-handedly directing the one-woman, multimedia extravaganza, The Wedding — it’s never just ‘a wedding’ is it? “I just don’t know what I did with my time before The Wedding, my life just feels so empty,” moans The Bride, apparently oblivious to the implications her words have for the people who have yet to star in their own weddings.
Are our lives empty? Cue hard eye-rolls. Recent newlywed Amanda Byram, left, mercifully chose not to engage with the honeymoan, opting instead for the “Look how good my arse looks” deluge of Instagram honeymoon shots. And we love her for it.
