Okay, the pre-wedding emotions officially hit me about one minute ago.
I’ve been feeling kind of stressed about keeping track of last minute details and getting everything together for the honeymoon as well – I feel like the stress about that stuff is causing me to forget about the really important stuff, like that fact that next week I get to marry The Guy and none of this will matter anymore!
So, anyway, I just got an email from my stepmum offering to take me to a really beautiful spa next week for a massage as her wedding gift to me. I don’t know what exactly about that got me – but I burst into tears and can’t seem to stop crying now!
Any other October brides experiencing heightened pre-wedding emotions??

Um..yeah…I cried at dinner last night. Out at a restarant. Apparently telling FI how excited I was to marry him was just too much for me. 🙂

I’m trying to remember. I think I was more emotional about two weeks before the wedding, mostly because of stress. About 5-7 days out I calmed down because I realized whatever was done was done, and what was outstanding I needed to let go of. I think the night before I was a bit irritable. I wanted space to myself but a couple of my BM were at the house and I just didn’t feel like “entertaining” people.
Don’t worry, you’ll find your calm place soon. It’ll be fine.

I have done nothing but cry daily for the last week…mostly because of one person causing a huge ruckus this late in the game.
My FI finally realized how stressed I was and is trying to help as much as he can, but I feel like I need to just crawl in a hole for a week and get away from everything. I kind of wish we were doing a honeymoon right away.

@bakerella: Oh please let that be me! I’m already feeling it, so is FI! I hope 5-7 days out I can relax….

I think it’s just the stress getting to me. It’s funny, a good friend told me that she thinks all brides lose 5 lbs the week before the wedding due to stress and I thought, ‘That for sure won’t happen to me!’ Cut to me forgetting to eat lunch at least three times this week – and I NEVER forget to eat.
I feel much calmer today than I did yesterday, but you never know when the tears will hit!
The Guy is being such a star, and right now we’re both so looking forward to being away, just the two of us on our honeymoon, and not having to talk to anyone!

@hergreenapples: Ooooh ya. I don’t think I forgot many meals, I just ate later than I typically did, but I still lost at least an inch or two off my hips in the week leading up to my wedding just from stress (even if I wasn’t feeling overly stressed, apparently subconsciously I was).

It’s so hard to keep your emotions in check leading up to your wedding day. I had so much to do the week prior (seating chart, menus, signs for the guest card table, favors) that by the time I was 2 days out from our wedding, I had passed out, standing up with a bowl of oatmeal in my hand lol. Luckily my husband was home at the time and caught me. It was harder for me because I didn’t have a bridal party and a good friend of mine that was supposed to come from out of state to help with last minute stuff had wound up in the emergency room the weekend prior. Even the day of, getting ready, I was like a mad woman on my cell texting left and right, making sure my husband was in his room because the photographer had arrived. When I got to the chapel, I was still stressing lol..”where are the program baskets!” (they were in the chapel), “where is the piper! I don’t hear the piper!” (he was behind the chapel waiting for the first look) lol. There was no way anyone could have calmed me down, and I didn’t until I stood in the doorway to the chapel, ready to walk. That is when I took a deep breath and enjoyed….
