leeshabee:  you will be fine. i cried a lot the days leading up to the wedding and then the day came and i was so damn giddy I didn’t cry the entire day. DH actually cried, he cried when I walked down the aisle, he cried when he danced with his mom. LoL we laugh about it now because everyone noticed that I was laughing through the ceremony and I had to explain I was not laughing at DH, I was just so happy, I was literally high off all the happiness Lol..literally on cloud 9! It was such an amazing feeling to be that happy. 

Enjoy your day, don’t worry about anything. Anything that might go wrong, bc there is always something, don’t worry it will work out. IT always does!

DH & I got married on our 10 year anniversary, we make 11 years in a few weeks!!! So the wedding was a huge deal for us too!

leeshabee:  well, he just might. DH was also very calm. I am a very excitable person, so the days leading up to the wedding I was like “are you excited?!” and he was all like “yea, im excited” but very calmly. he is the complete opposite of me. I am like a jumping coffee bean. So it was cute to see him all emotional.

leeshabee:  this is really normal but not often discussed- youre mourning the seperation from your family and change of identity (even if youve been living together as if married for a long time). There is a death of the old with every beginning of the new. I read an awesome book about bridal pschology called The Concious Bride- you probably dont have the time to read it now but long story short- know its normal and allow yourself to feel all the feels with out judgement! Your unconcious mind is preparing itself for the rite of passage and often if you work through all of that in advance you can be a serene bride instead of ya know…. sobbing over the wrong shade of peach or whatever! Just go with the flow 🙂

leeshabee: I was like Daizy914, almost to the T with our personalities too!  I would tear up at almost anything emotional in the weeks/days leading up to it, but on the actual day I was just SO HAPPY. The only time I cried was when I opened the gift from my husband and when I danced with my dad. My husband was very emotional though, it was so sweet.

leeshabee:  Crying is a good thing and totally normal. You’re still going to be a part of your family and have a new family too. I was emotional the whole time, but never nervous or stressed. The night before I had a mini-moment of panic that my MOH quickly took care of. Come the day of, I was filled with emotion. I cried (a lot) and made horrible cry faces that my photographer caught, but there was so much beautiful emotion I couldn’t imagine it any other way. You will make it through, and even if your voice quivers and you forget a line, you’re going to look back and remember that the day was perfect.

I got very emotional as it got closer.  My mind was so racing the night before that I think I got 2 hours of sleep scattered throughout the night before the wedding total.  I only got that because I finally took a benedryl.  I felt dumb about it because I was not nervous for the marriage and was so completely sure I was marrying the right person, but it is just a big landmark in a person’s life.  I would definitely strongly advise something like that from the get go.  I had enough adrenalyn to enjoy my day, but getting ready was a drag.  

Also, I would just let yourself be emotional. I’m not normally an emotional person and tried to hold it back even on the rehearsal, and I was just a mess of emotions during the ceremony.  People thought it was cute that I got so emotional, and makeup was all waterproof and easily survived it.  It was something I was trying to avoid, but I wouldn’t change it- my ceremony was amazing and special.  My mom on the other hand is very much an emotional person, and was very emotion during the rehearsal, but not so much on the wedding day.  It was like she got it out already.. haha.

I was a nervous wreck and kept getting headaches.  Everything turned out great!  I made myself an emotional wreck for nothing!

leeshabee:  I am in the same boat as you. I am getting married this Saturday too (date twins) and I am a nervous/sad wreck. I have been really calm the past few weeks, and I sort of feel as if I should have felt more nervous and excited beforehand but it has really hit me this week. I get emotional because my dad is upset that I am growing up and getting married, and I am nervous about having so much attention on me. Up until yesterday I had been feeling okay, but I feel super sensitive at the moment. I hope we aren’t like this on our wedding days 🙁
