    I went out bowling with my Fiance and all the groomsmen and my personal attendants and we were out until about 12-1.  I got up around 6 basically because I couldn’t sleep anymore, too excited 🙂

    That night was SOOO restless for me due to the anticipation!! I think I might have fallen asleep sometime after 3am, but was wide awake by 6am. Ohhhh, the memories… =)

    I am really nervous about this as I randomly (seldomly, thank god, but still occasionally!) have insomnia and can get 1 hour of sleep over nothing! I REALLY don’t want to have a sleepless night and I’m so scared that I will!

    Did any of you take anything to sleep? Tyelenol PM, etc? If so did it work?? I really want to figure something out for this!!

    I always thought I would be so anxious and unable to sleep the night before my wedding due to the anticipation. But I have to say that I had one of the best nights of sleep of my life.

    I had such bad insomnia the night before my wedding. And on top of it all I was sharing a hotel room with my two girlfriends who SNORED all night. I got about 2 hours. I was really crabby in the morning but brightened up once I had had a cup of coffee. Then I got about 6 hours the night of our wedding because my husband caught a stomach bug that night (got sick after the ceremony, thank goodness) and I kept waking up to take care of him.

    Yeah, when I said "in sickness and in health," I didn’t think it would mean "in sickness" so darn soon….

    I’m a runner, and one of the best pieces of advice one of my running buddies every was about sleeping the night before the race. If you ‘ve been training for a race for a long time, the night before can be unbelievably nerve-racking. So she says that the most important night of sleep before a race is actually the TWO nights before the race! If you get a solid night then, even if you only sleep a little the night before you’ll be good to go.

    I don’t know if it’s kind of "magic shoes" syndrome where I just don’t worry about getting the perfect night of rest before a big race because I know I got a good night’s sleep two nights out or what. But it really helps me! I’m banking on this for the wedding!

    I slept like a baby Darling Husband and I decided to stay together that night (we live together) – maybe it helped that we had our normal routine, bed, parterns, etc.

    I’m worried about this too.  My ceremony is scheduled for early morning so I’ll be up at O-dark hundred doing hair and makeup!!

    I drank 2 glasses of wine at the rehearsal dinner, slept in my childhood bed, and skipped the girly sleepover with the bridesmaids — I slept like a baby! I never would have lasted the next day if I didn’t.

    I spent the night at my grandma’s because that’s where we got ready and I didn’t even get there until almost midnight because the hubs and I were finishing up last minute stuff.  Then, I was working on a couple more little things and didn’t finish up until after 3am.  Went to bed, but had trouble sleeping, then had to wake up around 5am…I can’t remember the last time I was that tired when it was time to get up!  But I forgot all about it, I think the adrenaline from the excitement just took over.
