I’m afraid I’m going to be late. I know, I know, it’s okay to wait for the bride since she’s the star (forget about FI) lol but I know myself, I get a little unhinged (as Fiance calls me instead of calling me crazy) and that will throw off the whole day and make me unbearable.  I figure the only thing that I really have control of it myself.  Everything else I’m taking a c’e le vie attitude to.  (I apoligize for my French as I took Italian).  So my main fear is me being not ready and late.

My worries:

Dress won’t fit just right

Hair/makeup won’t look fabulous

Walking down the aisle (tripping, crying)

Vows (crying!!)

Food isn’t good

First dance-don’t like the idea of dancing while everybody is watching!

People don’t dance much

Haha awh, yes this comes with the territory I suppose.

Not so much a fear, but I know I’m going to CRY, so I hope that I can at least gain my composure back. I need waterproof EVERYTHING! 

My biggest fear is family drama, that and friend drama. We’re inviting friends that introduced us but they have been really cold and distant lately… we’ll see how that goes.

I’m not too worried about my cycle, I talked with my Gyno, and she said if it happens that I am due to get it that day, that I can for that time only, skip my placebo week and just start with a fresh pack. But, we’ll see, here’s hoping that I won’t have it. If it does happen, so be it, it wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen.

Although this thread isn’t sunshine and unicorns (in the words of Miss Scissors), I love knowing that I am not the only one with crazy fears.


I fear that there will not be enough candy in the buffet and that people will just eat it like salivating pigs!

I fear that I will have a really bad hair day forever emblazened in my photos!

I fear that my Dad might cut off one of the groomsmen! (And I fear the fight that will follow, BAD.)

I fear my period on that day too! Worse, I fear my period on the honeymoon!! :oP


@rabbit – Don’t worry about the twitchies! After the nervous down the aisle wedding part is over, put a mom or someone in charge of fielding vendors and you will have a blast spending time with your new husband!

@cupcake26 – I hope your Future Mother-In-Law doesn’t show up at the honeymoon! OMG!

@carrie.a.s.b – Death sucks. It just does. But the one thing you have to remind your Fiance (and hopefully, someone will remind your Future Father-In-Law too), is that she wouldn’t want to see him sulking on his wedding day. You can’t stop living your life just because someone you love isn’t there anymore. Know that she’ll be up there in heaven watching all of you having a blast and wouldn’t want it anyother way!

I love this post.  In fact, last night I had a dream about how EVERYTHING went wrong the day of the wedding.


My fears include:

Everything running behind schedule before the ceremony

My hair and make-up looking less than

My vendors being late or not showing up

People not having a good time, not liking the food, the small details, dancing, etc.

My feet hurting (I am looking into wearing flip flops at the reception

People eating all the candy at the buffet (just take a little… I am planning on making the bags I order smaller than they come)

People leaving early because they are bored, tired, etc.


However, I hope to plan between now and then so that most of the stuff I can control doesn’t go wrong.  If it does… it does and there is nothing I can do about it.  I’ve realized that I just have to deal with things and that people will decide what they will.

Mine are mostly weather related, and the reason I am so hung up on them is because they are likely!

– I’m worried it will be sweltering hot (outdoor wedding and reception in the South in June) and that’s all our guests will remember, despite all our efforts to alleviate the heat (fans, lots of icy drinks, tent).

– I’m worried it will rain and ruin all our plans that were going to be outdoors (DIY photobooth, kids activities, etc.)

I’m also worried that…

– Fiance won’t like my dress (he pointed out a picture in a magazine of a nearly identical dress and said he didn’t like it!)

– A kid will knock over the cake 

– Our guests will not enjoy themselves and it will be a lot of money wasted

– Our after party won’t be a rip-roaring dance party and instead be awkward and everyone will want to leave

Whew, it feels great to be able to say these things and not have someone interject and tell me that I am an over-worrier!

I am scared it will:

– Dump down rain or,

– Be over 30 degrees Celsius

– My dad will make me do the ugly cry (because he is crying)

– I will burst out laughing during the ceremony (me and FH don’t take things very seriously)

– My hair/makeup will be a disaster (I am sure I will not be worried after my trial)

– People won’t understand the gala-style reception (with dancing/food and speeches all intermixed throughout the night)

-That I’ll look awful in the pictures

-that it will be too hot and I’ll pass out — totally happened to me at my sisters AUG 2006 wedding.


That I’ll fall on my face — heels + klutz = FAIL [haha what was I thinking?]

I fear my grandmother shouting (she can’t hear very well) how terrible I look in my dress. I have tattoos and she HATES them and I happen to love them. She has no censor on her thoughts at all. I can totally picture me walking down the aisle and her ranting about how terrible I look. She is famous for also telling people they look fat and have gained weight. She also likes to tell people they look ugly. 🙂 She is such a charmer. lol

Well my biggest fear has already happened (venue burning down and having to find a new venue), so nothing else can be as bad.

However, I am worried that The Mog will be making comments to all of our guests about how she wishes we were getting married in a church and that it’s nothing like what she wanted for her son.

OKay, these WERE my fears:

1. Fainting/passing out/being so nervous I either make myself sick or give myself a stomach ache

2. People won’t show up

3. Guests won’t have a good time

4. People getting drunk at the reception

5. It will rain or be too Texas hot for our outdoor reception

Here’s what went wrong: NOTHING. The wedding & reception were perfect. I’ve had nothing but compliments from everyone (including the vendors!!)!! No worries, ladies. Everything will be fine!! It does go by fast, so ENJOY IT!
