Oh god. It’s here. Almost. My ‘big day’. I keep waking at 6am stressing about my hair, dress, logistics etc. most of all, I’m petrified I’m goingtoo be one of ‘those brides’ that persistently cries the whole day and is a soggy mess before the cake is cut. How do I stop myself from getting too emotional and experiencing the dreaded ugly cry???? Please, any advice at all about anything you wish you had/hadn’t done, and how to avoid the tears, would be appreciated.
Im not worried about marrying my man, I never have been, it’s all the fuss that goes with it that I’m concerned about.

Emotions are normal girl! This is your wedding day. Deep breaths.
It’s going to be awesome and you know it. And if little things go wrong here and there, in the grand scheme of things all that really matters is you are marrying the love of your life.

- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
Are you doing a first look? That was HUGE in helping me stay under control- I’m *SO* glad we did it. I was able to walk down the aisle confident/in control, vs. being a mess.
I still got teary eyed during the ceremony, and Darling Husband had my hankie in his pocket. A couple of people have commented how sweet it was when he passed it to me during the ceremony.

You’ll be FINE!! I mean, you’re going to be emotional…it’s a given. However, after you say ‘I Do’ and you have that ‘You may now kiss the bride moment’ it’s going to be SO MUCH BETTER!!
Darling Husband and I are not overly emotional people, and our wedding was so un-traditional that we saw each other all day in helping prep for it, I even saw him in all his wedding clothes before I’d gotten dressed and chatted and felt fine. It wasn’t until I was standing there, looking out at all the people that had come to our wedding, and saw him standing there waiting for me that my heart skipped a beat and I started getting shaky and feeling a little panicked and overwhelmed with emotion. When I got to the end of the aisle, joined hands with my husband and looked up at him, I saw little tears in his eyes too and the look on his face was the sweetest, tenderest and most loving expression I’ve ever seen. It was that moment that I sniffled, giggled to myself and realized how happy we BOTH were. And once we walked down the aisle as husband and wife, all of that emotion was OVER!! We were both so happy, and excited, and the rest of the evening was just amazing and wonderful!!
