Despite my car breaking down Thursday night, having to re-do the entire seating chart, one of my bridesmaids graduating this afternoon, and a large number of last-minute DIY projects — I am almost completely calm. Is that weird?
I haven’t been loosing any sleep over the wedding or having nightmares (I was last month, but that stopped).
I’m predicting that I’ll start to freak out when I’m walking down the aisle in front of 100 people, but for now I’m chillin’.

Oh, and Fiance and I still have to practice/learn to dance. 😛

I was totally calm and just really excited in the days leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding, I was totally calm and excited! In fact, I was announcing to the people in the Drive Thru at Starbucks that morning that I was getting married! Also to the cows, at our oldest daughter’s insistance, as well as random strangers on the street.
However, after we got back from my hair appointment and I was doing my makeup and putting my dress on, I started to FREAK. OUT. It was really bad. My Sister In Law was trying desperatly to get me to eat something because I kept repeating that I was going to throw up. My mother was trying to calm me down as she did up the lace corset in my dress.
It lasted about two hours, my little freak out. As I was walking down the aisle with my Dad (who was telling me jokes under his breath to make me laugh), and watched him shake hands with my husband and I then stood in front of the man I will spend the rest of my life with, I was totally calm. It was more then calm though, I was at peace. I smiled the entire time and just stared at him and nothing else.
He told me later that he had a freak out of his own – says it took him two hours to iron his shirt that morning!
Just think, at this time tomorrow, you’ll be a Mrs!

Wow. I hope you have a magnificent wedding!
P.S. My car broke down the day before my wedding — the day of my rehearsal/rehearsal dinner and mani-pedi appointments — so I know how distressing that can be! It’s great that you’re so calm.

I was the same way. 4 mins before I was supposed to walk down the aisle I got sick. After that I was fine 🙂

@ViaMinorViator: Haha omg! That sounds like something I would do. At my bridesmaid’s graduation dinner, one of the people sitting with us freaked out when she told him I’m getting married tomorrow. 😀
@Brielle: The night my car broke down was the only time I was stressed out — I almost threw up like 5 times haha. Omg. But the next morning I felt better, and I got my car back later that day.
@xshellx2003: Oh no! I’m so afraid that I’m going to throw up during the ceremony or something haha.

@thehoneybear: You should have heard the squealing that went on with the Barista’s inside the Starbucks! You’ll do great tomorrow, enjoy every moment! It goes by in a FLASH, I still can’t believe it actually happened!

For some reason I was totally calm the day before and morning of, then on the car ride over starting getting really nervous. Then while getting ready at the venue was totally calm, but going down the aisle and at the very beginning of the ceremony I was literally shaking I was so nervous about the music not playing right or tripping or something!

I loved how my coworkers were all like “Your getting married in 2 days, aren’t you nervous?”, and at that point, I just shrugged and didn’t care.
Fiance and I did not practicing dancing. The morning of our wedding, before I left for my hair appointment, we decided to practice a few dance steps. Yea, morning of the wedding… definitely not what we planned, but hey, who has time for dance lessons?!
My only ‘freak out’ was about the weather and them calling for rain. Somehow I woke up that morning and just didn’t care if it did anymore. Maybe it was all the cheese I ate at our hair appointment.
