Ladies I have been so wrapped up in the planning and getting everything done that I havent had the time to really take it all in. I’M GETTING MARRIED. woah.
I went from somewhat calm and collected with a plan and a mission to crap. Now that things are starting to come together 2 weeks before and I have less and less to do it is all becoming so real! I feel sick. I’m nervous about falling. Scared He won’t be at the end of that aisle etc.
How have you delt with the anxiety of getting married? I know this is right but woah this seems so fast! (and we got engaged last spring 2012 so we have had plenty of time!)

We were SUPER busy the last few weeks so it didn’t catch up until the moment I had my dress on and waiting in the next room while the bridal party lined up. We didn’t do a first look so I thought seeing him would calm me down. I wanted to vomit! I looked through a hole in the door (big windows but the glass was fogged or w/e and there were holes in the fog part) and watched him. It didn’t help the nerves. When the music started playing I seriously thought I was going to throw up. But the second I stepped on the aisle and saw him, everything else went away and I was completely and utterly calm. Walked fast down the aisle of course but remember the man who helps ground you is at the end of the aisle and you’re doing this together.
You will get through it, take some relaxation time and just keep the picture of him at the end of the aisle smiling back at you, you’ll get there and be overjoyed!

@LaTortuga: Wedding date twins 🙂
You’re not alone! I feel frantic over every detail and I am having a very small wedding. I just want everything to be perfect. I can’t believe I am getting married either. Being a wife will be the most important thing I’ve ever done.
I am scared of falling on my face in my 4-inch heels and tumbling in the chapel. I have been having crazy dreams for a few weeks now. Now I am afraid my dress is going to make me uncomfortably hot because the gown feels like it’s ten pounds!
I just try to focus on other things when I can. I read it’s a very feminine response to panic, so it’s natural I guess 🙂 My fiance doesn’t get why I’m panicky, however.

@Bunny_the_Bride: 2 weeks! ugh!
I feel like all is there but that I am forgetting something. I have done my best to stay calm but woah today it just really hit me like a ton of bricks. i got the dress yesterday from the seamstress and the rings (custom) from the jeweler today. I am in shock i think. While I know I have made it through much bigger things I feel more nervous about this than I did at my first interview for my “big girl” job or graduation. All things that have happened over the first year. I know I have met the man of my dreams I just wish this wedding could be planned in them too so that I didn’t spend every waking moment thinking about it. :p
