My wedding is 3 days away today, and I do not know what is wrong with me … I cannot stop crying! Anything can set me off, my cuddly dog, a song on the radio, looking at wedding pictures. It is insane – I am not usually a crier.
I am really excited to get married, not a doubt in my mind that I love my FH and want to marry him Saturday.
Maybe I am just overwhelmed by the things left to do … but his crying thing better tone itself down by friday.

HUGS!! Oh my! Can you get yourself to the spa for a relaxation massage? Are you feeling overwhelmed with too much to do between now and then?
Hang in there!! And try to delegate as much as possible!!

Don’t sweat it, its normal! The entire process (and the day of) is a very emotional experience. To me it just means that you’re very present, so to speak, in these moments and that’s important. You’ll be fine! Have a wonderful, amazing wedding day 🙂

@oracle: I have so much left to do! We have to get the last 4 peoples meal choices, and submit our choices for rehearsal dinner, I have my hair and makeup trial today, I have to finish and assemble 80 programs, print all of our signage, cut and frame it. I also have to steam our overlays, dust the candle lanterns, mock-up the candy buffet and buy more candy to fill it out. I have to confirm with our baker, confirm our mani’s pedi’s, and get everything organized to take to the venue friday to decorate. Plus we have to clean our carpets, weed and clean up the yard, clean the house for our house guests, and the morning after brunch at our home the day after the wedding.
I wish I could delegate something, but only me and FH are here, one of my BM’s and a friend come in thursday night, most over people arrive friday or saturday.
@ejs4y8: I am somewhat trying to embrace the crying, but I have so much to get done I have to suck it up and keep trucking along (can’t be having tear marks on the programs)

@jennifer_espos: Thank you, I was worried that I was in auto-pilot mode for a while there, planning the wedding without feeling it. I think finishing my last day of work before the wedding yesterday allowed me to be present in what is happening.

Oh, I was the same way the week of my wedding. I was so stressed out that anything set me off! And I of course cried as my dad was walking me in, but it was tears of joy and happiness that it was finally happening! And when it was all over, I cried b/c I was just glad.
I’ll tell you one thing though…you won’t cry on your honeymoon! Haha…

I’m with ejs – cry it out… before the wedding! I didn’t, and ended up crying off and on throughout the whole wedding day! Ceremony – I was a wreck. Father-daughter dance – wreck! Toasts – wreck wreck wreck! My friends and family are still making fun of me. “You’re not going to cry are you?” When we view our wedding video, I’m turning it into a drinking game – shots all around every time I cry.

I cry when I am stressed, frustrated, emotional, etc. You will be fine!!! Im sure you are just caught up in everything (or everything is catching up to you) so let it out. At least they are happy tears (I am assuming) 🙂 and not sad tears 🙂

my date is 10 months away and i’m already doing the same thing. I’m also having dreams of showing up there and having forgot everything including dresses and everything and having family yell at me for not inviting other people. It will end, it’s probably all just from stress i cry when i get really really stressed.

This is totally normal. I’m not usually a crier, either. The weeks leading up to our wedding, I was cool and calm and ready to go. During our rehearsal the day before, I started to SOB. Like, I was ridiculous. I sobbed the whole night before in our hotel room, too. My husband was scared! Haha. I kept reassuring him that it was just a result of tons of emotion that comes with weddings.
I agree with ejs … let it out now, and eventually, you’ll stop 🙂
