I definitely felt a little bit nervous that things wouldn’t come together, or people wouldn’t like the things I’d planned even if they went exactly how I meant them to.

At some point you just get calm, and things don’t seem like such a big deal.

The last week, the litmus test was “will this prevent me from getting married?”, and unless the answer is yes, you let it go!

That said, I did wake up at 2am the night before our wedding and snuck out to go check the car just one last time that everything we needed to bring was packed.  Freaked my bridesmaids right out that they had a runaway bride on their hands.

Your feelings are completely normal.  However, if you took the time to plan using various checklists, etc. you most likely have EVERYTHING taken care of.  Wink

Try to finish up with everything a few days prior, so that you can truly enjoy your time with relatives and friends who have come to celebrate with you.  Also, try to do something to pamper yourself, like a massage, mani/pedi, etc. in order to relax. 

No matter what, just enjoy the day.  Take it all in.  Love being loved!  Kiss

I’m going to be honest, I had a complete meltdown the night before our wedding. I was hoping it would be a nice relaxing time that I could enjoy with my family and friends, but there were a lot of last minute things I felt I had to do. We self-catered, my sister made the cake, and we still had decorating to do the night before. My husband, his parents, and my parents were at the reception hall until 2am, and I didn’t sleep at all. I felt so bad that everyone was up late doing stuff for the wedding, and I was so worried everything would look/be right that I almost had a panic attack. Thankfully my then-FI was wonderful, and one of my bridesmaids took over for me. My family really stepped up the night before, and the wedding day was perfect. Seriously, everything came together, there were no glitches (that I know of), and everyone had a wonderful time. So I’ll tell you this, it’s probably going to be really stressful right before your wedding. Try to let people help when they offer, and find someone you can trust with your “vision” so to speak. In the end, it will come together, and you’ll remember how great it was.
