Anyone getting nervous or paranoid about certain things? I have a ton of fears!
1. What if I catch a cold? I get a hacking cough when this happens.
2. Mosquitos are at their peak in June, and I’m allergic. What if I get bitten in my sleep, on my face (as they like to go for), and get huge red welts?
3. What if I break out – from all this stress?!
4. Three babies are coming to my wedding, one of whom is a screamer.
5. The extended forecast has let me know that my day is the WORST DAY POSSIBLE this month to get married – cloudy with thunderstorms!
I should be excited, but I’m just nervous 🙁

I am too! I’ve been sick for the last week (with some cold/cough nasty thing) and I’m hoping *fingers crossed* that this means I won’t be sick closer to the wedding. I’ve been taking extra super good care of my skin. Usually I just wash it and go to bed. I’ve been making sure to wash it in the morning and at night I’m still terrified of breaking out though! I randomly get those huge pimples that are really difficult to cover up. And the weather! I checked the farmers almanac and saw that it’s supposed to be rainy and cloudy in WI as well. Hopefully it’s wrong and it’s a gorgeous June day!

@everyheart: I can relate to worrying about stuff, but in the end, if you can’y control it, you’re only making yourself miserable.
Just try to keep in mind that a) guests don’t notice the small stuff and b) this day is about getting married, not about being a perfect production. If you resign yourself to the fact that something will go wrong, you might be able to let go a bit.

Um, are you originally from Florida? Because you should’ve known that when you picked the date about the weather! XD Any day between June to October in Florida is bad pick for an outside wedding. Rainy Season!!! That’s why I chose April, 2nd driest months of the year here in Tampa Bay.
As far as getting sick, take tons of airborne everyday the week or two before the wedding. Bring some mosquito repellent, and/or those torches that keep them away.
Let the mother of this screaming baby know to take them away if it starts screaming, at least during the ceremony.
To keep from breaking out (my biggest concern because I’ve dealt with acne since I was 13), stay away from drinking sugars and eating carbs 2 weeks before, honey and asprin scrubs every 3 days. Eat and take anything anti-inflammatory, stay away from pro-inflammatories.

Also, I just read rain on your wedding day is actually good luck, so at least keep that optimism lol.

I’m TERRIFIED of being sick/feeling lousy on my wedding day. I have some chronic health issues and a lousy immune system – so I catch damn near everything. My partner will come home, have the flu for a day and I’ll end up in the hospital for 3 and recovering for another 2-3 days! Luckily we’re just eloping so I’m not worried about feeling sick/hurting in front of a ton of people.

I’m worried about getting too excited/nervous during the ceremony and needing to pee! Because I always have to pee at inconvenient times when I have to stand and focus… so it’s on my list to try and remember to take care of that as soon as possible before the ceremony.
I’m worried about rain.
I’m also worried about breaking out from stress!
I’m slightly worried about the dynamics of my dad with my mom and her side of the family (divorced). I know everyone will be civil, but I just worry about others feeling uncomfortable.
I only invited three of my friends from my hometown. I’m worried they won’t be able to make the trip.
We’re driving the cake up from the bakery to our venue the day before, which is a 1.5 hour drive. It’ll be a small, two-tier cake… but still! So easy for something to go wrong!

I have some weird fears.
What if the coronavirus becomes a major thing and South Korea limits air travel like it did with swine flu and I can’t fly home/back for the wedding?
What if something crazy happens (North Korea) while I’m gone and I can’t fly back to SK after? (My whole life is here. Even if there was an attack I’d want to be there, to keep things as normal as possible for the students and do what I could.)
What if I get food poisoning?
What if I break out (heat, stress)?
What if the boat we’re getting married on moves more than was suggested to me and my balance issues crop up and I feel sick?
What if MY IBS, PERIOD.
What if I’m bloated and can’t get into my corset?
What if I make stupid faces in all the photos somehow and they all somehow are terrible?
There’s more, too… but those are the first ones I think of.

I worried about all those things too. I did catch a cold, the day after…was miserable on the honeymoon!! But that’s what cold medicine is for, you wn’t feel 100% but you can get sneezing/coughin under control for at least a few hours.
ahh..mosquitos. Well, sleep with a net, if that fails, or isn’t practical, if you do get bit, do not touch it! Wash with soap and water and apply topical cortisone, pop a benadryl you will be fine!
I did break out, the day after!! lol…I woke up the next morning with 3 zits!! all I can say is if you get some , don’t panick, don’t pick, don’t sqeeze…just take a breath and put that makeup to work. Take good care of your skin even when you are tired, if you are prone to breakouts…see your doctor for a topical antibiotic and use it prophylactically the weeks before the wedding.
Babies screaming happen….usually when babies scream, parents get up and excuse themselves for a while, don’t worry!
I did have rain in the forecast…it rained up until a few hours before the wedding when the sun peaked out…but even if all it does is rain… it will still be amazing!!
The best advice I can give you is not to stress aobu tthings you can’t control.

Believe it or not, although it likely WILL rain during my wedding (hurricane season, actually), that’s lowest on my list of wedding-day fears. They include:
- what if my mother behaves like a jerk and makes me cry (as she is extremely prone to do. My mom can say ONE thing and have me crying for hours and she knows this and makes no effort to speak gently with me) and ruin my makeup before I even walk down the aisle?
- what if my stepfather refuses to walk me down the aisle (he’s been acting difficult as well, especially since his cancer came back)? Or, what if he doesn’t feel well enough. Or worse?
- What if all I can think about is how my real father isn’t there and never will be (I realized this when I graduated from law school and could not get my mood right from that moment on)

@everyheart: I work as Pharmacist and am prone to picking up things from customers/patients/clients etc.
Last week i got a crazy case of viral conjuctivitis. My whole was swollen and sensitive to light. I had to wear sunglasses. My eye was red and swollen for 7 days.
I almost died, what if i had developed that on my wedding day?
I am now washing my hands every hour.

I’m glad I’m not the only one with irrational fears! Here are mine…
1. What if I catch a stomach bug or get food poisoning?
2. Fiance plays hockey and softball. What if he gets a black eye? Or gets injured?
