I got married last month and had the most amazing day! I enjoyed it all and was calm and happy until just before going down the ailse, I suddenly went light headed and dizzy and came over unbelivably nervous!. I whispered to my Dad “Dad I’m SO nervous” he say it’ll be alright you look stunning, then as we turned the corner and the music started I burst into tears! not like weeping but proper sobbing! I don’t know where it came from because I was so relaxed at the rehearsal. People afterwards said I was shaking.
Apparently after the walk and I sat down I sorted myself out complelety and was fine after that, I was so emotional coming in , I think I freaked people out, my Mum said she wasn’t sure I was going to make it down the ailse.
Even though I had the most amazing day, I really did, there was no other nerves, just that 5 minutes down the ailse, I feel a bit sad that I got in such a state, I wanted to look beautiful coming round the corner but I just must have looked a mess, my husband said it was sweet and funny and typical of me as I am such an emotional person but I remember barely anything of the walk, I din’t hear the music or see his face. I feel really embarrassed about exposing myself so much, I just wish I’d kept it together, especially not started shaking.
My friends said it was fine and it was brilliant that I pulled it together so well after but I enjoyed the rehearsal so much I wish it had been a bit more like that, I was so happy and relaxed. I just can’t believe how suddenly overwhelming it was coming round that corner with everyone staring at me.
Have any other bees experienced something simiar?

Did you post about this a couple of weeks ago? Getting married is a big deal and emotion is perfectly acceptable and expected. Let yourself off the hook and enjoy life with your new husband.

Once upon a time, my husband passed out at the alter. I swear, he bobbled at first, then the next thing he was down for the count. The poor little church janitor came to the rescue with smelling salts. Hubs looks pasty white in our photos. But everyone remembers our wedding!

@Hermoine: aww! maybe it wasn’t in spite of being so calm and collected besides, but because of that. like all the emotion built up into those few peak moments.
at my cousin’s wedding about 20 years ago i was the flower girl. it was a sappy wedding with my whole big family all tearing up and stuff and at one point when they started some emotional music i cried ridiculously!! it’s hysterical to think of me doing that as just a little kid, but i can remember it vaguely. the maid of honor wiped my face w her gold 90s gloves hahahaah. we can still laugh about it w my family to this day. embarrassing though!! LOL!!!

@Hermoine: I didn’t cry going down the aisle but I did have the worst bout of social anxiety ever!! And I’m most comfortable in front of people too!

I am SO afraid of doing this. My mom got married a couple of years ago and I thought I was going to burst into tears at her wedding so I don’t know how I’ll avoid it at my own.
That being said, it’s totally okay! While I hate being the one to cry, I never judge anyone else and actually think it’s sweet to see the emotion. I’m sure your guests felt the same way.

I sang and shook the whole time. I sounded awful, but everyone came up to me (even to this day–a year after our wedding) and says how beautiful he and I sang together. I made the most hidious crying face when he sang to me the song he proposed to.
It’s those moments that made my wedding day special. Yeah, when I watch my wedding video I have to see the moment when I smooshed my face together like I just got done with a sour lemon and rubbed the juice in my eyes, but hey! I was emotional because I love my husband and was overwhelmed at his moving display of affection toward me 🙂

I’m not married yet but that will pretty much be me. I already warned the FI that I might not be able to coherently spit out the vows.

I’m not married yet…so i can’t say from my personal experience. But I was at a friends wedding and she got so nervous standing up there she almost fainted. They actually had to stop the ceremony to get her water and have her sit down for a minute!

I wouldnt be too nervous ladies 🙂 I am what they call “a crier”…I cry at EVERYTHING!!! and I was soooooooooo sure I was going to ugly cry like worse them Kim Kardashians ugly cry down the aisle….Im an emotional wreck that cried everytime I heard the first bar of the songs for our wedding lol
what happened? it all came out at the rehearsal…. we didnt go through every single thing for some reason he made us say our vows and I totally lost it….
the next day it was just so much nervous energy and excitement and emotions when it came time to walk down the aisle I welled up a little when I looked at DH because he was comPLETELY bawling lol (haha sucka) and I just didnt cry!! I came very close…. but I think all the adrenaline flowing just made me more happy. I did repeat to myself “pull it together pull it together pull it together” lol

Awww, don’t beat yourself up. In a way it’s sweet that you felt so much emotion that day and let people see it. I’m such a coward I’m not even walking down the aisle…can’t do it! lol
