Eh, I was pretty calm leading up to the wedding. I’m a big planner and had started pretty far in advance, so I had everything done to allow for emergencies. We had some last-minute issues that we dealt with quickly (I was short a centerpiece and DH did part of it while I was doing the flowers, and then I did the rest that afternoon; three of five tuxes were the wrong size, which the bridal shop fixed ASAP with no prompting).

I was REALLY excited when I was all ready to go on the day of!

I felt the same way in the weeks leading up to my wedding! I stressed out some starting 2 days before the wedding… but that was because the person making my cupcakes backed out so I had to make 1000 cupcakes by myself lol

Don’t let everything make you feel like you’re supposed to be some kind of crazy bridezilla nervous wreck! 🙂

I was extremely calm and I highly expected to be that crazy stressed out bride.  I was excited, of course, but honestly, my nerves didn’t kick in until my dad was about to walk me down the aisle. The day of was pretty stress free, and I was bummed that doing our hair took longer than anticipated, but in the end, everything worked out!

I was totally calm until the right before I walked down the aisle. Who needs the stress!

I was very calm during my wedding!  I am pretty organized and knew everything was done.  I trusted my vendors that they’d be there on time and do their jobs.  Nothing went wrong during the wedding.  It was truly perfect. 

You’ll get excited the day of!

I was very calm about the wedding. My mom was worried about the details enough for the both of us. I was just happy to be marrying DH 🙂

I was pretty calm, too. Totally normal. The excitement started up the night before and carried on into the wedding day.

I got really emotional at the rehearsal (CRIED) but I managed to pull it together at the real thing. I did get suuuuper nervous right before the ceremony started….I felt a bit light headed and definatly needed some water (make sure a BM has a bottle lol) I was just so ready for it to start it felt like every minute was an hour lol…like COME ON

I don’t think it’s very strange. ^^

I was pretty calm after the initial planning excitement wore off. Eventually I was just like ‘OK let’s do this I just wanna be married!’

Even on the day of my wedding, people were kind of taken aback at how calm I was. Everyone kept asking me if I was getting excited yet. (And I found out later that DH weirded people out by being so relaxed, too.) I was certainly HAPPY, but I wasn’t jittery/anxious/butterflies-in-the-stomach at all.

My wedding was on Saturday, and I only got nervous the Friday before (rehearsal party was at our house) and the morning of, I woke up with stomach nerves. By the time we were done with hair and makeup, I was hungry enough to stop at my favorite sub shop on the way back to my parents’ house. Hubby and I are in Montreal now and are so calm and happy. You should be calm now that it’s over. All the planning paid off, and you’re married!

I was calm throughout the entire planning process.  I had ONE meltdown the day before the wedding because my now-husband was EXTREMELY late doing one of his tasks and it cause me to miss out on 2 hours of time with my bridesmaids doing my flowers– all 4 of my BMs flew in and were hanging out in my hotel room for 2 hours while I waited for DH to do his task and then meet me to load and unload everything for the hotel.

Other than that, I was easy-breezy.  I didn’t sleep well the night before because I was convinced I had forgotten something, but the day-of was better than I ever imagined and everything was perfect.  You’re not alone!
