    I didn’t sleep ridiculously badly, but I definitely woke up a few times. I made sure that the day of the wedding I didn’t have to be anywhere too early.

    Try to sleep… you really don’t want to look/feel tired!

    I didn’t get much sleep the night before my wedding, but adrenaline kept me going all day. 🙂

    i slept normal.  i wanted to sleep a little later, i thought the wine from the RD would help.

    i was up at 6:30am, after going to bed around 11pm.  i was fine the entire day and night of the wedding.

    I stayed in my parents hotel room with them. My dad snored all night but my mom wouldn’t shutup asking me questions about how the day would unfold. Not that I would have gotten any sleep anyway.

    Good luck – have fun – and congrats!

    I haven’t gotten married yet, but I could NOT sleep the night of our engagement, and one of my friends said the same thing happened to her the night of her engagement AND wedding! I just hope that no matter what, I’m able to be present on the day.

    Congratulations and good luck!!!! The wine that I shared with my mom and sister the night before definitely helped. I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas morning but a jazillion times more excited!

    I got to bed late because we were visiting with friends, so I was pretty tired and went to sleep well. But I did wake up really early because I was so excited!

    Congrats – so exciting!  The night before my wedding I stupidly had 2 coffees after dinner, then was so wired that I drank a Neocitran before bed to help me sleep, which resulted in scary heart-racing feelings as I laid in bed… so it took me a while to fall asleep.  I hope you don’t wake up too early (I was awoken at 5:30 from thunderstorms outside on my wedding day and couldn’t get back to sleep).

    Good luck!!

    I stayed up much later than normal so when I finally went to sleep, I slept like a baby. In fact, I didn’t want to wake up when my MOH woke me up. LOL

    I slept like crap the night before my wedding. I just kept waking up and couldn’t stay alseep. My heart was pounding all night. I finally started to sleep good around 5 but we got up at 7:30, so that didn’t help much. I so wish I had some drugs to help me sleep. BUT I was so excited and having so much fun at my wedding that it didn’t even matter! I ended up staying up until like 2am, eating pizza with my friend in her hotel room lol (husband and my friend’s FI were there as well)
