Being the center of attention for a prolonged period of time, feeling very loved, realizing that you’re about to go through a major symbolic life change, navigating the change between “childhood” and “adulthood,” wedding stress, and period emotions!

I felt completely tapped out and giddy after my shower…and then found out later that night that my mom was going to have to have a hysterectomy. (She’s fine, but damn was that a day of incredibly intense emotions.)

I was super anxious for my shower! The day of I was filled with joy/hapiness and so many other emotions. After it was all over, I returned home with gifts from all my loved ones. Reading all their well wishes and showing my Fiance (at the time) the heartfelt gifts made me feel so loved. Many of my family members handmade quilts, blankets, shawls, scarfs for me.

The next day reality really sunk in. we were getting married. I began to get nervous, but eventually it wore off. I just tried to remind myself what I was thinking and feeling when we got engaged and when we were in the beginning stages of planning….you know, when it was all easy-breezy and fun 🙂

just try to relax, think about the bigger picture, and enjoy every minute of wedding stuff…even the stressful planning. Here I am, three months into my marriage and I can’t let go of the Bee!!! I miss planning the wedding but at the same time, I am so glad it is over (the last week was pretty darn stressful!)

Good luck!!!

I tend to get choked up when I have a large gathering of people who are there to support me and I make a thank you speech.  I pretty much wept one Thanksgiving and last year I almost did the same thing. I did not at the shower though, I was just on such a high.  I was truly surprised at who all came out to the shower (in the downpour too) and at the wonderful (and plentiful) gifts I received. I could not stop smiling from ear to ear.

I didn’t have a shower so I can’t speak to that but I remember when I got my last hair cut before the wedding and I randomly started crying! I think all the emotions of it really happening.. being so close and the stress of the wedding all just hit me. I was completely caught of guard but my hair stylist said that I wasn’t the first bride to cry at the “last haircut before the wedding”. It’s just alot of emotions all at once, totally normal.
