@cmoest:  I have the same fear – about the arguments happening, particularly at the hens day/night…….and since we’re TTC at the moment, baby showers are on my mind too! I have the opinion that I’m not the one who divorced, so why do I have to suffer the consequences?

Are your parents reasonable people?  Can you have a heart-to-heart with them and share your angst?  Communication is ALWAYS the best approach in situations like this.  Tell them how you feel and express your heartfelt desire to have a day free of drama that is just a celebration of the love and commitment that you and your fiance share.  Ask them to respect that.  I hope that they would make the decision to be mature adults and not put a damper on your wedding day.

My biggest fears leading up to the wedding are:

1. getting sick

2. catostrophic weather

I worry that FI’s family won’t come. I know a lot of them won’t as they are all in another country, but my fingers are crossed desperately for his parents and his brother. That’s all I’m asking for.

We bought a specodices destination wedding package that only includes 40 people (anybody above that is anextra cost) so I’m worried that we will either have too few people or too many.


My other major fear is a tropical rainstorm.

I have an irrational fear that I will fall down in my dress in front of the guests. Or that I will get the flu or a virus and be sick, that I will have a breakout during that week and have zits all over my face, that I will look terrible in my pictures (makeup and hair).

I worry that my aunt flow will arrive on my wedding day. She always comes early when I am stressed out 🙁

Being sick on our wedding day! 9 days to go and I still have tonsilitis 🙁  I have been through two rounds of antibiotics too! Also, looking bad in pictures and someone getting drunk and starting a fight (thinking of one person in particular)

My biggest fear is that my guests won’t have fun and won’t dance. I’m also shy to dance in front of people, so I’ll have to get over that. I have time though. 

ETA: also that my FMIL and mom won’t get along. They are both strong-willed women that wouldn’t hold anything back. needless to say, I am afraid to get them together. In the 6 years of dating, they haven’t met in person.

biggest wedding fears right here, they’re on-par with eachother:




very few people showing up.
our guests not having a good time, or dancing.
FIL getting drunk and causing a scene.
on-going drama continuing until (and after) our wedding.
people who aren’t invited, showing up in an attempt to ruin our day.
i have IBS and anxiety, and when i’m anxious/nervous, it is reflected in my bowels.. LOL…
financial drama.
being able to cope financially next year, after the wedding (i’m looking for work at the moment, and with my anxiety flaring up a lot recently, it’s proving difficult)
bad pictures
won’t like my hair, makeup or wearing my dress.
i have PCOS (with very irregular periods) and i wouldn’t be surprised if on my wedding day, i have my period, or get it unexpectedly.




getting married is a breeze, right? never felt a single pang of stress at all.

I fear I will look fat or my fiance will hate how I look. So superficial but that is my honest answer.
