About Wedshock

There's more to marriage than happily ever after.

The moment is perfect. He’s on one knee and gazing into the eyes of his sweetheart as he asks, “Will you plan the most stressful event of your life, navigate life’s biggest achievements and harrowing losses, and argue about nothing with me for the rest of your life?”

Ugh, another fairytale proposal ruined by the reality of “marry me.”

What the hell happened to happily ever after? Well, it never existed…a little known truth that’s been hidden beneath a giant pile of romantic advertisements that the wedding industry dumps on brides-to-be from the moment they get engaged until the day they say, “I do.”

To be honest, we’re tired of the false promises, wedding day obsession, and general lack of preparation most grooms and brides have for the marital journey they’re about to embark on.

That’s why our mission at Wedshock is to prepare, support and console brides and newlyweds on the crazy, stressful, wild ride of engagement and new marriage.

We do this with our weekly articles, social media profiles, email newsletters, products, and our paid Facebook community. We want to support newlyweds in an honest and helpful way while they're experiencing the highs and lows of new marriage. The first weeks and months after your wedding day can be a difficult adjustment since you've gone from being single to having a lifelong roommate. You're not just an individual anymore, you've added another opinion to the mix…and that can be frustrating as hell.

This new season can feel disorienting, and we call that feeling wedshock. So whether you're a newlywed experiencing wedshock right now or you're a bride trying to prepare for it, we've got you.

Hi! I'm Alycia, and I started Wedshock when I realized there was more to marriage than I'd always been told. Zach and I have been married for four years, and we just moved to New York. Oh, and we're about to get a puppy. Tune into our newlywed adventure on Instagram.

Love our mission?

Linking arms with likeminded brands is one of our favorite parts of this whole thing, so if you’re picking up what we’re putting down, get in touch with us asap.
