I’m all about getting my beauty sleep every night. I need my 7-8 hours of sleep. I’m worried the night before my wedding I won’t be able to get some rest because of the excitement. Tell me, how did it go? How about the days leading up to it?

Hahaha not good for me, unfortunately. I NEED my sleep, and I didn’t get much in the few days leading up to the wedding, and the night before. I was practically falling asleep in the make-up chair! I blame my Maid/Matron of Honor, who shared a room with me and spent HOURS texting her boyfriend in another province, gigling and laughing. I wasn’t too impressed.
I would recommend, if you can, to boot everyone out of your house and get to bed early.

haha. It’s a inside joke in my family & friends that I can sleep anywhere and everywhere and under any circumstances. Night before the wedding included! 😀
But my Maid/Matron of Honor & SIL/BM didn’t get any sleep because they were so excited!

Not married yet, but was recently a Bridesmaid or Best Man. The bride hadn’t gotten much sleep the week of the wedding due to the stress and getting all the little things done. The night of us girls stayed with her.. she was worried that she wouldn’t sleep due to nervousness, but was so exhausted from the week’s activities that she had 1 glass of wine and passed out on the couch! We of course woke her up and tucked her into her bed, but she said she slept like a baby!

I slept like a baby everynight before the wedding…,mind you , I wasnt stressed and everything was going really well. The night before i was up late, my sister and i had gone to a park to pick some “free” flowers for the church and then i neded up talking to her for a bit…then i texted my future husband for about a half hour *laugh*

I got maybe 3 hours of sleep. And not in a row. I was so excited! Plus Darling Husband was staying somewhere else. I think if I had to do it again we would have stayed together. Or I would have taken something to help me sleep.

I thought for sure I would be awake all night long and tossing and turning, but I slept like a baby!!

I’m already having trouble sleeping! And I’m constantly dreaming!
I worry myself way too much, my mind never wants to shut off. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get in 5 hours of sleep at least! Maybe I’ll take a valium!

I slept well until about 4a.m. when I woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep. I was way too excited about getting married that I couldn’t sleep a little longer until 8:30a.m. before hair and makeup appointments. I really don’t know how I functioned from 7a.m. until 4a.m. the next day on such little sleep. Luckily, our hotel let us check out late because we really didn’t get out of the hotel until 2p.m. on October 11th.

I slept in a hotel room by myself and I had worried for a long while about being able to sleep that night. My thoughts for months were so consumed with wedding stuff that I would have a hard time shutting my brain off to sleep and if I woke up in the middle of the night my thoughts would go right back to the wedding, however the night before I slept like a baby! I got into bed early, after the rehearsal, and just watched tv. I fell asleep around midnight and didn’t wake up until 8:30

After the rehearsal dinner, we got back to our hotel at around 11 and while I was excited, I was also very, very calm. I slept like a rock.

@loveknows: Ooh I’m scared of this also. One of the last things I want is to look super tired on my wedding day!

I’m nervous about this too!
My best friend who got married a year and a half ago slept like a rock the night before. We slept at her parents house with all of the BMs, and she got the best sleep out of all of us! I think she fell asleep around 10 and we got up at 8. Not bad!
I usually have a problem sleeping when I’m anxious, but I’m going to be doing soooo much setup before the wedding that I’m sure I’ll be exhausted.

I still can’t sleep the on Christmas Eve. And if there is anything I have to be at at a specific tim or any reason I have to set an alarm in the morning for somthing other than class I can’t sleep. Heck, I can’t sleep now thinking about everything that still needs to be done and we are 4 months out!!! I will definately need something to sleep.
