- Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall
Ok ladies: I don’t mean on purpose: No one needs to turn me in to a support group or anything.
But I keep HURTING MYSELF as my wedding approaches! I swear I’m generally not this much of a klutz.
My legs are covered with bruises, scabs, and a deep deep gash that probably won’t heal before the wedding.(And… I’m wearing a short dress, remember?) Last weekend I got a big red bug bite on my FACE. I have nasty tan lines because I forgot to wear sunscreen a few weeks ago. Two nights ago, I opened a closet door really fast and basically scraped the WHOLE TOP OFF MY TOE. And today, I got in a fight with my umbrella during a hailstorm and ended up deeply cutting my thumb and first finger.
Any other late summer/fall brides finding it difficult to keep their skin flawless throughout the summer?

Ouch! The stress is starting to get to me and I’m starting to break out! I can’t help but to pick at my face…and it’s not looking like a pretty thing right now.

As for your cuts, they’ll heal alot faster if you keep changing bandages and keep applying neosporin. Believe me I usually take months to heal wounds but after crashing our 150cc Scooters on Easter Sunday, going about 45 mph and me playing slip and slide on gravel and concrete for about 8 feet, that method really helped speed up the healing process. And I’m talking flesh missing…so…it should help with cuts and scrapes.
For the tan lines, look into gradual self tanners to even out the lines. Go with gradual so you can get the right tone.

Oh emg I know what you mean!! My fiance gripes at me all the time to stop picking at them but grr they’re on my face!
I need to go see my GYN to get some birth control. Last time I was on it my skin was crystal clear for the first time ever. It was awesome.

My wedding isn’t until next March, but I am klutzy normally. So as my wedding approaches, I have been told I am not allowed near any ladders (or heights in general) or sharp objects.

Have you tried cocoa butter on the scraps? I don’t care for the smell but it does help heal faster and minimize the scarring imo.
I also have a BAD tan. I wore sunscreen but when you’re floating the river for 9 HOURS in the Texas sun – ya, sometimes sunscreen does not help. LOL So, I went and bought a Nutrogena sunless spray tanner today and I am hoping to even it out that way by only applying where I am still white. I’ll let you know how it goes.

eeek…haha this is my life all the time to a lesser extent as my booboos rarely involve bleeding wounds. Last night I rammed my love handle into our door handle…this morning i stepped on a barrette…it never ends. I like to guess where I got all my new mysterious bruises sometimes…
I always do these things when I’m thinking about other things or am absentmindedly running about. Try just to slow down…

Yeah I am doing everything to beautify myself, I’m using those white strips and just went to my dermatologist to clear up my skin, I tend to break out in summer and my job is more stressful one month before the wedding (thanks alot boss!)
so no you’re not the only one, I wouldnt say I’m klutzy
my fiance in the meantime was in a car crash and had his car window smashed about 2 weeks later
my mom said before a big event you are more prone to accidents just be careful Ancient asian saying

I am athletic, but clumsy; I have been banned from entering rides, races, etc. after September 1st. This is an attempt to avoid crutches, ice packs, and other items. Not that I can’t sprain my ankle walking a straight line, but…

I have burnt the top of my head with a curling iron, gashed my left hand on the door and broken out with more spots on my forehead than I can count.
I think I will be needing lots of face and body makeup on the day!

oh this is good. i am not the only one who has come down with a case of serious klutziness.
so far i have: gnashed my leg on a branch during our photo e-session (wouldn’t stop bleeding during the rest of the shoot)
whacked my head trying to get out of my car, a pretty small gash but thankfully its covered by my hairline.
i keep having visions of falling down my concrete stairs outside my house.
and have become a worse driver than usual.
to top it off, i had laser hair removal a few weeks ago and the estethician messed up and burned part of my face! ahhhh. so i’m frantically putting on lotions and stuff (they promised to fix it but we’ll see)
i feel like i have bride-brain.

- Wedding: October 2010 - Kindred Oaks, Georgetown
Yeah I’m anticipating the same thing happening to me when my date gets closer. I’m such a klutz already, I can only imagine what my trip down the aisle is going to look like. I even fell down the stairs a couple days ago. Thought I broke my arm. Really I just badly bruised and scraped it. What a klutz!

Knock on wood, but so far, so good! Only three weeks to go!

MJ, I am not getting married until next summer, but I totally understand… We live in a house that used to be his bachlor pad, needless to say it has bumpy panted wall treatments that I scrap myself on all the time. I will cut corners to close, run my leg into the wall beside the bed, I hit my hips on doors, and the island in the kitchen is evil in my mind… I really think that I have this mentality that my body takes up less space than what it does… I dont know.. my FH has joked about putting me in a bubble so I dont get hurt… maybe ill try bubble wrap!

I was bitten by a dog one week before my wedding, talk about stress leading up to disaster. I had to get on antibiotics and the worst part was that I couldn’t wear my engagement ring and during the ceremony I had to squeeze my wedding band on a swollen finger. But in the end I look back at it and laugh.
