sounds like a good exchangE! ya know, my makeup didn’t budget AT ALL but i had a hard time getting my face into a real smile because i just couldn’t hold it together! He thinks it’s cute–i’m sure everyone else was like “ohhh i hate when brides don’t smile!” but i was like a fraction away from losing it =]

I guess laughing could be just as awkward, LOL. I didn’t see my guy before the walk and I was totally completely overwhelemd for the first 5 minutes. Granted, it started right berfore i was ready to walk down the aisle. Composure is not my strong suit =]. all my friends have managed to keep it together though! Just not me =]. Granted, I cry at stupid commercials, so uh, he totally knew what to expect =] I had my Maid/Matron of Honor keep some tissues on hand though which came in handy so I could wipe my nose and eyes. Have yours hold some just in case!!! =]

DON”T TAKE IT! I took Zanax for something else and it knocked me out on my butt! It was a teeny little pill and it made me loopy and very drunk-like. I was totally apathetic to everyone around me and slurring like a drunk old maid! Tread with caution. My friend said she took the pill called “i just don’t give a damn anymore!” cuz she said she was just ready to get the wedding on! =]

I think you will be fine!  I didnt see my Darling Husband before walking down the aisle either.  We still had plenty of pictures and it was *the best* feeling waiting and walking down the aisle seeing him for the first time

Good for you! I really wanted to wait until I walked down the aisle for us to see each other, but my Fiance just didn’t get the importance of it, so we’re doing the ‘first look’ now since we have the time. I still kinda wish we were doing it the old fashioned way, but since my Fiance runied it for me, oh well. I’m sure you will look beautiful though, and as you said, be so happy walking down the aisle that you’ll have nothing but a happy face!

We went through the same thought processes.  At first we wanted the pics to be before the ceremony but then I was like “hold on!  I want us to have that special moment” (I may have also instructed him to cry… or else, haha).  All the pictures that are important to you will get taken.  I am a list maker so maybe you should make a list of the most important ones, so you can kinda check ’em off and you don’t forget anything during the excitement of the day.  Also, I spoke to my photographer about doing as many formal pictures as we can without the 2 of us.  Meaning, me and my mom/parents, me with my girls, him with his parents, him with his boys and so on.  But, leaving us to do it after the ceremony… when I’m gonna be a blubbering mess, yikes.

We waited until the ceremony despite the photographer’s pleas to do it before.  I loved that we waited!  it was exactly what we wanted, we had plenty of pictures, nothing missed and all the pics of us were as a newly married couple (with our rings on!) vs. the anxious about to get married couple.  To each his own, but if this is what you want, I think it is *totally* worth it.  Pictures are there to capture moments, I wouldn’t give up the moment for more pics 🙂
