I was so nervous leading up to it all. When it came to the day of I was ok. Doing pictures before the ceremony really helped. We had a blast doing our pictures. If we would not have done them before I would have been super nervous

We all took a shot of peppermint schnapps right before walking down the aisle–the pictures of us outside the church are priceless =)

I drank a couple glasses of wine while getting ready! (Not really because I was nervous though, just because it was the girls hanging out getting our hair and makeup done.)

If you’re wanting something non-alcohol, there was a tip from a few gals to eat a banana in the morning. I guess there’s something about them that helps calm the nerves. Of course, bananas and mimosas sound like a well rounded breakfast to me 🙂

@Bichon Frise:  I was a little shaky at the very beginning, (just because I was very shy) but had my dad’s arm, but once I saw his face, I just looked into his eyes, no one else mattered!  😉

Once you go down the aisle you will most likely go into a surreal trance, its like all time stops! Before you know it, the dude or dudette is like and now you may kiss the bride! and its like whoaaa alright time to party!

I plan to have some champagne and take photos before to have fun and loosen up.  I also think I will do a first look with FI-I feel like it may be too much pressure to try to stay out of sight until the unveiling as I walk down the aisle-it will make me nervous to  wait for him to see me.

I’m planning on eating a huge bowl of fruit salad and drinking a big cup of Starbucks.
