Maybe it will hit you on the day of? Not all brides have to be gushing to be happy about their wedding. I feel like that’s one reason why many elope. There aren’t those same bells and whistles and a couple can just be happy about their new life together.

A lot of it has to do with how we’re told we’re supposed to act. We see the blissed-out-of-her-mind brides on TLC and movies and we think that’s how it’s supposed to be.

I didn’t cry or get really excited when I found my dress. My family did, but I was calm. I’m happy to be married, but all this extra crap makes me resent it and wish we would have just eloped. I know what you mean.

Hey date twin! Everytime someone asks “are you getting excited?!” i have to do this awkward yes/smile, because while i am rediculously exicted deep down inside, it’s mostly brushed aside by the stress of everything that has to happen in the next week and a half. I’m hoping after I do my drop-off and the stress is lessened it’ll be more gush-y exciting – hopefully for you too!

alditt14:  I wasn’t excited either!  And didn’t get excited on the day, just really ridiculously nervous!

It’s like Christmas once you’re adult.  You look forward to it but you’re not child-like giddy.

I am 10-11 days out, and no excitment. I am thrilled that I get to marry him, but it doesn’t show… Maybe it’s just the way some of us are made. *shurgs*


By the way, only 5 more days for you! WOO HOO! 🙂

Well I think that’s far better than you going batshit crazy right now! As long as you’re happy the day of, that’s all that matters! 🙂
