The same, excited and a little anxious. We had a very small ceremony so I probably would have been more nervous had it been a bigger one. Enjoy your day!!!!

Congratulations!! Just breathe and take in every single moment. It goes by way too fast.

For me, I was really calm. Unnaturly calm. I was happy and excited and so full of joy, but outside, I was super calm. It all just felt tingly and good ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy your day!! Congratulations again!!!

Congratulations! I felt pretty chill. I’d spent months planning and stressing and at that point, whatever was going to happen was going to happen. I had some breakfast, took a relaxing bath, did my makeup, wandered downstairs to the “bridal suite” to get my hair done…  Haha, at breakfast one of my bridesmaids (who’d told me she didn’t need a hem) told me her dress was too long. TOO LATE NOW ๐Ÿ™‚ An earring came off its post. BORROW A PAIR OF MINE ๐Ÿ™‚ At that point, you just go with the flow and, in the words of Tim Gunn, “make it work!” 

I am normally very prone to anxiety, but I actually had a few vendors tell me I was very calm for a bride! Honestly… I just felt like the die had been cast, and we’d just roll with it. I got stressed out later in the day when family started getting involved. But the morning and getting ready was great!

I alternated betw really nervous and really excited. I was excited when things were going on to distract me (hair, makeup, etc. ) but nervous during the down times (once I was dressed and just waiting). I was mostly nervous about being the center of attention though cuz I’m more of a shy person. I wasn’t nervous to get married. 

My he nerves finally when away completely once I finished eating and got up to talk to and thank each table for coming. 

I hope your day goes amazing!

Bored6:  Ah, congrats!! Enjoy the day… it will go fast!!

I was anxious, but excited. I started the day out at home, cos I did my own make-up, so I saw Darling Husband before I got picked up to get my hair done. I think that helped to just be with him the night before, so we could say we spent that last night as an engaged couple and the next night we’d be married.

I know I took some Pepto, as my stomach gets upset when I get nervous, anxious… and it helped! *lol* But, at the same time I was really calm – it was such a weird feeling. I am not one to stress over a lot of things, though, so I think that helped.

Bored6:  I was excited, and sleepy. We had an unplanned late night before by the time we finished our rehearsal and dinner so I was definitely sleepy the morning of the wedding – yet still managed to spring out of bed! Darling Husband and I stayed together in our home, and it was nice to wake up together and have a quite moment to say “goodbye” for the day. I actually got up, showered, dried my hair, and ran the vacuum before the hair/makeup people and my girls showed up…lol. Two of my bridesmaids showed up first thing with my favorite latte and I just remember being excited and relieved the day was finally here!

Bored6:   I was married in the late morning – I woke up at 3 am on the big day and was so excited I wanted to dance all morning!!!   Enjoy the day, take a moment now and then to just look around and soak it in.  It goes by so quickly!!

Looks like I was the only one a little hungover. :/ I was a little too happy at our rehearsal dinner and out-of-town party the night before (so was Darling Husband so its okay!) Thankfully it subsided before our 5:30 ceremony and I was just REALLY anxious/excited all day!

I was excited! Couldn’t believe the day had come. The week prior was so busy wrapping everything up but the morning of, I knew there was nothing else to do but take in the day.
