Our photographer sent a bunch of tips for our wedding day, very thoughtful. In it, on more than one occasion, it says that regardless of when your period is due, it will make an unscheduled and unwelcome appearance on your wedding day and to be prepared with protection. Is this true?
I’m just wondering. I mean, my period started yesterday and should be over by Saturday. That would mean that it will have just been over a week before our New Year’s Day wedding (yaaaay!!). But I know that anything is possible with the stress and all so I’m wondering, have any of the Bees ever had this happen to them where their period came again on the wedding day?

I am on the pill and I was on the placebo pills at the end on my day. I didn’t start bleeding, but I was slightly cramping later that night.. I didn’t have time to go get my new pack so that i could skip my period. Everything was fine though.

Sounds pretty silly to me. I’ve never heard of this phenomenon.

I’m curious how the photog knew this? Every bride has admitted it? I mean did it really say it will rather than it may? Or have they only dealt with bridezillas and this is their explanation? Ha ha
I feel like the wedding is a bigger version of the prom. You know, you get ready all day and have jitters and sure the emotions are higher but I still don’t see how that would affect your hormones enough to start your period. I’m not married so I guess I can’t say for sure.
I agree with iheartnerds. Sounds silly.

Funny, I actually did have my period that day. LOL. Bad timing for me! Although, it was actually my time of the month, so it didn’t arrive unexpectedly or anything. I knew it was coming. I honestly don’t think that if you have a regular schedule and you aren’t supposed to have it, that it will just show up just because it is your wedding. I think the idea is just to be prepared just in case however.

Well, I’m not married, but I really can’t imagine that your period would decide to come just to mess up your wedding day. If you’re normally pretty regular I wouldn’t worry about it. Although I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have a tampon just in case?

That is the weirdest thing ever. Why does the photographer feel the need to even be involved in that? I had my period the week before my wedding, and not again until it’s scheduled arrival a month later. And I’m not on the pill so nothing artificial to help keep me regulated.

This is weird. I wouldn’t worry about it. If anything, use a pantiliner and bring extra protection just in case.

really weird that your photographer told you that! no, i had my period as regularly scheduled by my bc about 2 weeks before the wedding.

My period ended the morning of my wedding. 😛 BUT… I’d actually taken Provera to kickstart it since my body has been… um… weird since going off of birth control in June. So really the only reason that I had it on my wedding at all is cause I took the provera. lol Luckily we were fine for that night.

Ive never heard of this – why would your period just randomly show up?? Yeah, makes no sense!

I thought it sounded ridiculous, but the photographer (who is female) swears this is the case and reiterates it several times throughout the tips.
But, I’ll definitely take the word of the Bees over the photographer!
Thanks again and yet another crisis averted!

I don’t really understand why your photographer is giving you advice on your reproductive cycles?
In any case, I guess it couldn’t hurt to be over prepared, but this seems far fetched to me. I’m on birth control pills. My period is predictable down to the hour it starts. This did not effect me.

Nope mine didn’t show up unexpentantly on my wedding day. I’ve never heard of this either!
