I don’t think you are alone. I have heard a lot of people say just the same.  I think the whole walking down the aisle thing is going to be so surreal for me that I won’t even be able to comprehend that a hundred people are staring at me.  If that thought actually does click in my head, I will probably turn fifty-six shades of red.  Blushing bride indeed.

Well…EVERYONE will be looking at you!

 

I kind of get stage frieght too.  I especially am not looking forward to doing my speech.

Yeah, I’m kind of afraid of walking down the aisle because of that. I’m just going to look at my Fiance and try to focus on him.

We’re both nervous about our first dance, too.

OMG I am so nervous about this! I think I like the idea of having all the attention on me and the Fiance but secretly, I am terrified. I mean, I get embarassed when people sing me “happy birthday” or something ha.

Blushing bride I definitely will be!

This is why I wanted a small wedding.  I can’t stand people looking at me, it makes me cry.  But, my Fiance wanted a big wedding, so I’m just going to have to deal.  At least he’ll be with me, he always calms me down.

Yes Fiance and I both are a little shy and nervous. He keeps saying at least everyone will be looking at me, which makes me more nervous. But I’m sure in the moment, it won’t be as big a deal. I just need to figure out a way not to cry. 

I’m sure you’ll be fine once you’re in the moment.

Yeah, I am here with you on that! I agree with mrsmurraytobe, I like the idea of having all the focus on me, but I know in situations like this I am always a bit frightened! Haha. This is why I am glad we are doing a first look – I will get to enjoy a few quiet moments with my Fiance before the ceremony and I won’t have to worry about people staring at me while he sees me for the first time. I am glad the aisle I’m walking down is rather short! haha

Yes- another shy bride here.  I am terrified and have decided we need to have the shortest, simplest ceremony ever.  I keep going back and forth about getting married privately at the courthouse and turning our wedding into just a reception.  My Fiance always gets me back on track by reminding me that I bought the dress for the ceremony.

This really bothers me, because I really don’t want that much attention on me.  Even if it were a small thing, but most certainly since the big white hurricane is expected… 🙁

Ah well.  Maybe when it happens, I’ll be too worried about everything else.

I am so nervous about everyone staring at me while walking down the aisle. I keep joking that hopefully I don’t trip or something. I think every bride has this fear, because we will already be overcome with emotion, and then all the attention on top of it makes it unnerving!!

Yep! I am insanely nervous. I am normally quite outgoing and will often give presentations at work. That being said, this is different. I am not up there talking or presenting. And everyone will be staring! At least when I give presentations at work I know that at least 50% of people have zoned out and aren’t paying attention!!

Definately.  I do not like the ‘all eyes on me’ feeling.  I’ve never wanted to be the center of attention or even been really comfortable with a lot of compliments (silly, I know).

This is exactly why I’ve always wanted to elope. Fiance on the other hand wants a “real” wedding with all his family there. We’ve come to a sort of compromise, but I’m secretly hoping he’ll change his mind. I hate being up in front of crowds…I also am dreading the dancing.

I def have this fear. I get nervous when I find myself in a situation where I am the center of attention. I just really dont like people looking at me! Maybe if I have just one glass of champagne…just to calm the nerves.
