i was really calm while i was planning my wedding. i mean, i was super excited, but really mellow about everything and i didn’t have any psycho moments. there were a few times in the beginning where i just felt overwhelmed by it all, but after having a good cry i was ok.

everyone kept saying that they couldn’t believe how calm i was in the last 2-3 weeks before my wedding. even i couldn’t believe it sometimes. i’m a nervous/anxious person in general, so i was expecting to be a wreck the whole week of my wedding, but i was totally fine. even on my wedding day, i woke up and i wasn’t nervous at all. i just kept saying, “i can’t believe i’m getting married today!” haha.

my friends said that as i was walking down the aisle i looked so calm and peaceful.

I was extremely calm also, it was crazy. I wasn’t nervous, I had a very laid back kind of attitude. My wedding was on the beach and i was out in all of the elements, wind, a small rain shower, sand, and I was just taking it all in! My veil was blowing every direction, my feet were sandy, it was hot but I was so calm and just embracing the elements! I was also very calm during the whole planning process, it is kind of just my nature though.

You’re fine! I was stressed finishing up last minute DIY stuff, but then I was pretty calm with the whole thing. I didn’t really get excited until I started getting ready. As soon as my cousin started doing my hair, BAM, totally giddy and excited. I didn’t cry before I walked down the aisle. Honestly, I was so excited I was practically bouncing around the waiting area. So going down the aisle, I was mostly grinning like a maniac the whole time. My husband cried. He cried some more at the vows and I did tear up a little bit then. But no major tears for me. And I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I was happy!

@asianbarbie:  yes, i was calm.  i was excited about the big day but not worried or nervous at all.  everything was so organized that i felt good.  the only issue that came up was my dress was too big.  i had been really sick a month before the wedding and lost 15lbs due to it so i had to have a rush alteration and take the dress in a size.  no problem.

i was very calm the day of too.  i guess sharing a bottle of champagne with my dh while getting ready in our suite helped.

I was really calm!  The seamstress at my second to last fitting commented on it and basically said I was weird.  (Then I cried because she didn’t understand that she hadn’t fixed something and it was really bugging me and she said she would do it a long time ago, but that was out of frustration, not stress or anything…).  I felt super calm all week, like I wanted to get everything done in time, but it wasn’t a huge deal and pretty much everything was already in motion, so I wasn’t concerned.

Then right before the rehearsal, I was getting ready in my hotel room and realized I was wearing a white dress and only had brightly colored underwear and no slip.  I nearly had a breakdown at that moment!  But it all worked out (thanks to the underwear that came with the lingerie I planned to wear the next night!) and aside from frantically writing a list the morning of, it was all pretty chill.  Getting all worked up isn’t exactly my MO, though.

My mom took an entire week off work leading up to the wedding, then called me around Wednesday the week of the wedding (wedding was on Saturday) and asked me what I was doing. My response? I was at work. I never even thought to take off work leading up to my wedding. My boss called that eening and told me to take Thursday and Friday off, which I did, relaxing with out of town family members, everyone saying “I’m here to help. What can I do?” And the truth was, there wasn’t really anything TO DO. I had taken care of it all. Just had to run to walmart and get my emergency kit together. 

I was so calm and relaxed through all the days leading up to my wedding and then the morning of the wedding… 3:30 am, I could NOT sleep for the life of me. I was so excited, I just couldn’t stand it. I laid in bed for two hours trying to go back to sleep and finally gave up at 5:30, snuck into the living room as to not wake up my bridesmaids, got on facebook, youtube, weddingbee, and watched tv. Talked to my dad, who was also wide awake. I was itching to get to the venue so I could relax, so once my bridesmaids finally woke up, we ended up going to the venue at like 7 am and once I was there, I was excited, but so calm again. I watched movies with my bridesmaids, ate snacks, took my time doing my makeup, while everyone else did the last minute set-up items that I could not do since I was staying out of sight of my groom till I walked down the aisle. 

We had one thing go not-so-according-to-plan and I just said, oh well! We can do without those! So being calm does not seem all that unusual to me. Just enjoy these last few days. Let yourself feel however your body wants you to feel, and enjoy the ride! Soon it will be over in a blink of an eye, so take time to let it all sink in and take mental pictures while you can.

I was so calm the last week I was having dessert with girlfriends and not thinking much about the wedding! Then Fiance made me sick, but I was still really really grateful I got almost everything done at that point .Seriously if you’re calm it’s because you planned well!
