- Wedding: April 2011
At what time did you guys go to sleep the day before the wedding?
I went to bed at 2! 4 hours later than planned. I was still printing menus, escort cards and table numbers. Was only able to emboss tha table numbers because they were 10. Everything else had to go as was, which really didn’t turn out to be the end of the world as I had anticipated! Then I sewed the lace to the ring pillow. Good thing I remember to, otherwise it would have been one awkward moment at the ceremony! Then I proceeded to try to wrap the bridal party’s gift, which I could just not figure out. Ended up losing like 45 minutes of sleep on nothing. Was solved the next day when my MOH’s mom bought little bags for the gifts while we were getting our hair done. Everything that had to do with my MOH was helpfull that day! Then I went to bed and thought for a while about our unpacked bags, decided I would do it the next day after I did the hair and right before I put the dress on. And that’s exactly what I did, like on a 15 minute stop. Didn’t even know what was in that bag until we got to the honeymoon! It was a near by minimoon, so no biggie.
Looking back, I which I hadn’t lost all that time thinking of how I would get things done. If I had listened to my then FI when he said I should have gone to bed, it would have been about 11-11:30 and everything would have been the same. It didn’t really show in the pictures, but still I know I could have looked better if I had slept a little bit more. Oh well! It was still a magical day. And although I know it may sound like everything was a big disaster, it wasn’t! Everything else went along beautifuly as planned.
Oh, and an advice to future brides! Don’t lose sleep over anything insignificant! If it’s not crucial just forget it! A minor detail won’t make the difference (even if you have been dreaming about it for so long), but some sleep will!
Did you follow through your schedule, or were you naughty and stayed up a little later, or even a lot, or did you have no sleep at all? Whas there anything that you just did not have time to finish?
