I get married this Saturday. I’m extremely calm, almost too calm…Its unusual, but everything is in order and it is nice. I’m catching glimpses of excitement here and there but any past brides go through this, what happened the day before and day of?
Did you get excited again? I’m asking because i feel this calmness is not normal.

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 Darling Husband 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 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 Darling Husband 🙂

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 Bridesmaid or Best Man 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 Darling Husband 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 Darling Husband 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!
