    @80sbee:  I can tell you how to remedy that, the way I do almost every night, Benadryl. If I can’t sleep I take two Benadryl and I’m out in 30 minutes. I’ll usually sleep for 6-8 hours straight when I take it. I don’t always wake up feeling refreshed but that’s nothing a cup of java won’t fix.

    I was up until about 3 and got out of bed at about 6. I am really sensitive to Benadryl and am knocked out on half a tab. I didn’t want to risk feeling groggy all day, so I didn’t take anything. But to be honest I was so excited and had so much adrenaline I was fine staying up late (we closed a bar at 3AM, and hung out after that).

    The two days before my wedding were absolutely insane, and I barely received any sleep either night.

    I worked up until two days before my wedding, and I had many last-minute details to handle. I then experienced some very disruptive challenges (my car wouldn’t start and I had to find alternative transportation to my salon appointments and my venue on the day of the rehearsal, when everyone I knew was traveling to my venue from other directions or was at work. I literally had to rent a car to get to my hair appointment and my wedding rehearsal, and I was several hours late to the salon, etc.) Craziness.  My venue was a three-hour round trip from my house, so I was on the road six hours on the day of the rehearsal (and also the day of my wedding!), and I was up until the wee hours of morning on my wedding day to finish packing for my honeymoon. I ran myself ragged, and I paid for it. I started getting sick on the afternoon of my wedding and was sick during my honeymoon. Not fun.

    I wasn’t too worried because I’m usually a good sleeper and I was SO tired, but I was tossing and turning all night imagining everything horrible that could go wrong and worried I would sleep through my alarm… I ended up getting up two hours before my alarm went off.

    I highly suggest taking a swig of nyquil or somekind of nighttime medicine to help you sleep a bit better.

    I’m definitely worried about this.  I already have nights when I toss and turn because I’m thinking about wedding stuff and I still have 3 months to go.  I can’t imagine how I’ll be the week of.

    you’re not alone!

    im saying screw tradition and i’m sleeping in my bed with my fiance in hopes that i’ll stay more calm if i’m in my element and having a relatively “normal” night.

    then we’ll part ways in the morning, not to see eachother again until i walk down the aisle 🙂

    My wedding is at 11am. I have to be at the venue at 7am…I’m terrified I’ll be SO EXCITED that I won’t be able to fall asleep until 3am and then be ridiculously tired at the wedding!!!!

    I got 4 hours of sleep. Fell asleep at 1 am, woke up at 5 and couldn’t go back to sleep. It’s easy to function on 4 hours of sleep =D If you take anything to help you sleep, make sure you’re in bed early enough to sleep it off. You don’t wanna be a drowsy bride =)

    We got to Savannah on Wednesday and stayed out until 2 or 3 am on Wednesday and Thursday night and about 12:00am on Friday night AND I barely slept on Friday night due to nerves. I have no idea how I functioned but I didn’t feel tired at all. Adrenaline baby!

    I haven’t thought about it until now but I do fine with little sleep.

    I saw another thread on this topic a few weeks back, and a very smart bee posted something about having a glass or two of red wine at the rehearsal dinner as her sure-fire sleeping aid. I think I’m going to go that route! Red wine makes me reliably sleepy – and it doesn’t take me very much! Plus, it’s delicious … ;-P
