i tried to sleep at midnight but was still running around doing last minute stuff at home and woke up at 7:30 since everyone else was already up and making a ton of noise.  My hair/makeup was at 9am and the ceremony at 5pm as we did our photos before hand also.

I stayed at a hotel with my bridesmaids, and I didn’t end up falling asleep until after midnight.  I woke up around 8:00… we had hair appointments starting at 9:30!

Darling Husband and I spent the night together at our hotel suite.  We didn’t get to bed till around 1am and I woke up at 7am.

It took me a while to fall asleep saturday night, I probably went to bed around 2 am and I woke up before my alarm was supposed to go off at 5:45 am – I was up around 5:30 am – we left my house at 8:30 to head to the venue – gosh, in retrospect that doesn’t seem like enough sleep but we were going on adrenaline, I think!

I slept wonderfully the night before. DH’s cousin called our room at 9am and woke us both up with “Hey bro, when are we all getting together??”. I was mad that I missed the last planned hour of my sleep. I’m not a morning person AT ALL. I figured since I woke up so early I’ll go get my polish changed in the hotel salon instead of having my mom do them. I went in my overalls and flip-flops, no contact lenses so half blind, and yawning the whole time. The girls who worked there couldn’t believe I was getting married that day and said I was the calmest bride they ever saw 🙂

I actually had no problem falling asleep the night before the wedding…I was exhausted from the past 2 nights not getting enough sleep so I was fine sleeping.  I had to get up at about 6:45 because my sister and I both had to be showered and have our hair dry before getting to the salon at 8am.(I stayed the night at her hotel room so my then FH and I didn’t see each other until the ceremony).  Our pictures started at 12 for a 2pm ceremony.
