I wasn’t too emotional, but I think we all handle stress/big events differently. Like I hardly slept or ate the week before the wedding. Apparently it was normal to be wide awake and working on last minute projects at 2 am. 

So it’s OK to be emotional–weddings are emotional events! And I totally cried during our ceremony. I couldn’t even make it through my vows! My dad (our officiant) had to give me a little “break” before I kept going. 🙂

I became a raging lunatic in the days leading up to our wedding. I was cool as a cucumber the ENTIRE year and a half that we were engaged and something just snapped like 3 days before. I’ll be honest when I say I completely lost my shit. I didn’t turn into a Bridezilla since I wasn’t really taking any of my aggression out on anyone else, I was just going insane. 

On wedding eve Darling Husband and I were over at my IL’s putting the finishing touches on the photo booth. I had to go home to load up the car to head up to the venue so Darling Husband had me get some cable from my computer so we could use it for the booth. The little f*cker wouldn’t come off no matter what I did. Friggin’ Iron Man must have screwed it in. I sat here, at my desk, SCREAMING for like 10 minutes. I’m sure my neighbors thought someone was being murdered. It was to the point where I was going to bring the whole god damn computer with me since I couldn’t get it out when it finally loosened. By the time I was done, I was a sweaty mess. THAT is how stressed I was. I somehow managed to sweat from unscrewing cables. My blood pressure had to have been through the roof! Come to find out, it was the wrong cable and Darling Husband had to go out and buy one a few hours before our wedding. 

So yea, some brides cry, I apparantly Hulk out.

What gets me is reading wedding vows online. 

I was doing this last weekend, and I started sobbing in front of my computer screen. Like ugly-face crying!! FH just shoots me a side glance and says, “Its going to be okay, babe.” 

That’s really the only thing that’s getting me right now — but I am EXCITED!! That’s one very strong emotion right now. 🙂

I was soo excited and running around like I was Super Woman.  I couldn’t sleep and was barely eating.  I really think having the week off which cut down my stress level was the best idea for me.

@Baby_Diva: I tried to look up examples of vows while eating lunch at my desk and I started tearing up too! I had to go to the bathroom!


@SleepingWithNuns: I got a little tiny bit teary, but mostly I was really giddy and happy.

@UpstateCait: Ahahaha “Hulk out”!

I’m not there yet (still 30 weeks to go) but I cried at Mrs. Doubtfire, and many, many other lame things.  Can’t wait to find out if I’m a sobbing messy bride, too, haha.

Dude this is how much of a mess I was. I was driving the morning of my wedding and Toxic came on my iPod (yes by Britney Spears) and I bawled. Literally, tears, sobbing, ugly cry. It was bad.

I cried over flowers, my dress, the programs,  my broom, etc. I was an emo mess the week of my wedding. Anytime someone asked me about it. Tears.

Its not a bad thing! Its just so many feelings going on in your head and your body just can’t handle the over emotions.
