I’ve got less than 50 days to go, and just dislocated and fractured both bones in my left wrist. At the ER they were careful to take off my e-ring before my fingers were too swollen. :*( I had surgery yesterday morning, and now have creepy (but not visible) pins and a plate on my radius. Ahhhh! I’m in decent spirits, knowing it could be far worse… but what sad timing!
Anybody in a similar boat? Anyone wore a cast, crutches, etc. on their wedding day?

My cousin was in a horrible car accident the day before her wedding and broke her hand and her collarbone. She was in a cast and was on so much pain medication she hardly remembers the day. We all felt sooo bad for her.
Hope you feel better soon and at least you have 50 days to re-coop a little bit! 🙂

I know of several people who’ve sprained things or gotten other accidental injuries right before their weddings. It’s because of stress makes you less careful. I’m so sorry you got so hurt! Good luck and feel better soon!

I found out that I have a thyroglossat duct cysts in April after finding lumps in my throat and have to have surgery to have them removed, the Dr suggested I wait till after the wedding to do it. I am now getting married in a week and a half and the cysts became infected and absessed, ie- the infection came out through my skin to drain. So now not only do I have lumps but they are all swollen, red, scabby and sometimes pussy. I am really upset about putting on my beautiful strapless dress and seeing my neck. But…I can’t change what’s happening and I’m going to do my very best to ignore it. I’m going to find the best bandage I can and cover it…maybe my makeup artist can blend around them to help conceal the fact that I have bandages on my neck. I’m just trying to remember it could be always be worse…yes, it’s not how I imagine my wedding day going but as long as he and I are there that’s all that matters in the end.

One of my friends broke her ankle about a month before her wedding. She was thankfully off the crutches by the time the big day came, but she couldn’t wear the beautiful heels she had purchased. Instead, she got some white tennis shoes and put a pretty white ribbon in them for the laces, a la Father of the Bride. It worked out well, and she got some cute shoe photos with her bridesmaids! Just remember, it’s going to be something you can laugh about later!

I’m so sorry to the brides out there with injuries! My groom just broke his ankle 2 weeks before the wedding. He’s on crutches and has a cast. Family golf game before the wedding? Scratch that. Groomsmen basketball game? Nope. First dance? Ha, that’s laughable. Honeymoon trip with snorkeling, swimming, & hiking? Delayed. Oh, now I know why people buy travel insurance. Buy it ladies! I understand the “for better or for worse…” part
