The back will line up much better on my wedding day (the lacing of it I mean), and the front looks bunched up, but it’s really not. It’s beaded and the train is gorgeous. I spent 30$ buying this dress off of someone who had never worn it and, “just had to get rid of it,” and spent 15$ getting it altered by a close friend of my MIL. I am a very thrifty person, and to get a really nice wedding dress that cheap was a complete win for me.
<br />I’m getting married on the beach this Saturday. The wedding is paid, the condo is paid, the dress is perfect- but I am going crazy. I wish I had taken off a couple days before the wedding. I have Friday off for our Fall break and am taking Monday and Tuesday off for our honeymoon. I called in yesterday and today, not realizing how crazy and hormonal I would be acting.<br />I’m a mess. One minute I’m crying, the next I’m super excited. I have been taking care of little minor details (cake, dress) to justify taking the days off, but my whole world is going to change-or it feels like it. I’m a very excited to be getting married, but my emotions are all over, and I’m very very anxious about it.
It could be partly because I am on the Mirena and have started taking bc pills to help postpone my period (wedding/honeymoon are on the beach in Orange Beach, Alabama and a LOT of water fun will be had, plus my periods are killer :/), along with the fact that I have an anxiety disorder. Hah. I am just ready for it to be Thursday night- packing and ready to go to Orange Beach and get ready to be married. I just need to keep it together until then, actually go in to work tomorrow and Thursday, and be happy, because this day will be over before I know it and I will regret acting like a crazy person. Any support would be much appreicated- Anybody else feel like they were going crazy/overly emotional/crying fits?
Thank you for listening!

capriciouskat: first of all, your dress is lovely. I would have never guessed you only spent $30 on it. However, the rest of your post is allover the place. Are you normally prone to getting very emotional about major life events? Does your doctor know you are taking birth control pills? The combination of a hormonal IUD and hormonal birth control pills, seems questionable. Either way, if you just started taking the pills, your hormones could be very out of whack.

I love your dress. The neckline and the cap sleeves are beautifully face framing, it emphasizes your tiny waist, AND you got the bargain of the century.
Your emotional state could definitely be related to your hormonal birth control. In a few days you will be a married woman!

Yeah, the doctor prescribed them to me knowing about the Mirena. And I know! This post is all over the place! I am an emotional wreck. And I’ve always been treated for anxiety problems, which worsen with life changes yes- but I think I am going to stop taking the BC pills- I planned on stopping after the honeymoon but at this point it might be doing me more harm. I’m usually not this scattered, I promise.
Thanks for your input. 🙂

capriciouskat: What a beautiful dress! I love all the beaded details.
Even though my profile says November I am also getting married on Saturday! And yes I have been feeling very up and down emotionally lately which is unusual for me. I know it’s just wedding planning stress so I’m trying to just take it in stride and not worry too much. HOWEVER, I could not imagine also taking a new BC pill right now or I’d probably lose it! I’ve been off that stuff for years because it messed with my emotions too much.
You’re not alone with the roller coaster moods! Just remember it’s all temporary and on Saturday you can just focus on having fun with your new hubby!

Dovetail: I was on BC when I was like 17. It made me crazy so I stopped and then at 22 had a kid, tried BC again to stop having kids lol and had a second in the he midst of switching from one to another. After I had my second I got put on Mirena and I’m one of the few who still gets their period monthly like clockwork, and my period was to land right on my wedding day/honeymoon. I would have just dealt with it but we will probably parasail and do other water activities, and I have pretty heavy ones (sorry TMI) so when my OBGYN put me on Sprintec I (for some reason lol) didn’t expect a cyclone of emotion to overtake me.
i made a post a month or so ago about the menstral issue and should probably refer back to that topic because ive had cramping and mild (very mild) bleeding for a couple days. I’m hoping it stops by Saturday and that’s my period over and out of the way!
I hope you have a great wedding! I’m excited to know someone on here is going through what I am, thanks!!

I am getting married Saturday and have been an emotional wreck as well. I do have hormonal issues (thyroid), and think that could be a huge factor in it. However, there have been quite a few whoppers this week as far as “incidents” go, and I have had my share of tension/stress/drama/etc.
I have confidence that on Saturda at 6:01 pm, I will return to my usual happy 🙂
