Does anyone look at boards, and browse online, and see other couples and just wonder if you indeed will be THAT happy on your wedding day?? I mean…. Do you ever wonder if your going to look like the bride who is happy, or the bride who is fly out of her shoes beaming with happiness??
I have been beginning to wonder this. I feel like im so stressed, that even on my wedding day im not going to be that happy. Im confident and happy with my choice of a man… but ya know how some people you can just see it….
I have started wondering if you can SEE it with my Fiance and i….
Just a little vent i guess.

I am sure some women experience their wedding days differently.. Have you ever seen Bridezilla’s? Those women are obvious not all that happy on their wedding days haha! Just go with the flow, and try not to stress out anymore… AND always remember.. you’re wedding day will NEVER be as important to anyone else other than you and your Fiance

Ya i worried about that too. It doesnt help that I had gotten into a little issue with my dad the week before the wedding too.
But I guarantee that on that day, you will feel like a million bucks!
I felt freaking awesome and it showed in my pics!!!

I know I always say this, but I think weddings are like having a baby. You get so wrapped up in the stress, the anticipation, trying to make everything perfect, and worrying about all the things that could go wrong. But then when you’re in that moment, and you’re about to say those vows, none of the other crap matters at all. Don’t forget to say to yourself when you’re about to walk down the aisle “Remember this moment.”

@MeganTacky2247: Aww, honey! I think you’re just overwhelmed with all of the planning – totally been there. I felt that way before my wedding day – there was just so much to do, so much to take care of, that I didn’t know if everyone’s best advice (remember to soak it all in) was something I would even begin to be able to take. But it will happen for you, I promise! When it gets to your day, you will be so overcome with all kinds of emotion – for me, it was a combination of relief (of the planning being over) and that beaming happiness you’re craving. *hugs* It WILL happen!

I agree with you! I feel I may be more of a hot mess after my wedding day than a beautifully blushing bride haha. I know I will enjoy the night with FH but until that day comes, I don’t think I’ll be able to understand how or why until that moment. I’m planning on it happening though and trying not to stress too much.

I know what you’re talking about! For me, I wonder if marriage is really as happy and exciting as some people make it out to sound. I mean…I’m excited to get married and I’m sure we’ll have wonderful times, but some of my Facebook friends make married life seem like a 24/7 orgasm! 😉 I guess that’s awesome for them… I’m just not sure I’ll have that same after glow for months to follow. 🙂 I do, however, think when my wedding day comes, the combination of the day finally arriving and knowing we have all our friends and family around us will help make the day really awesome.

So here’s the deal, not everyone is ecstatically happy on their wedding day. For some people it is filled with gritty, raw emotion that takes them to their knees because it’s just that BIG. Some people don’t remember a thing, while others remember every last detail. Some can’t stop smiling, while others tear up at every little thing. You will feel however you are supposed to feel. Maybe you will be the beaming bride. Maybe you will be the misty-eyed bride. Maybe you will be the overwhelmed bride. There is no right or wrong way to feel on that day. You can’t predict it or control it, so let it be. Give yourself permission to feel however you feel, and it will be okay. Because if you really feel it, you will be truly present. And being mentally/emotionally present on your wedding day is what matters most.

For me, the week leading up to my wedding, a calm just came over me. I did all that I could possibly do, and I left it in everybody else’s hands at that point. That’s what you paid your vendors to do. This was so not like me, because I’m totally Type A and my wedding brought out the worst (and best) of that, but looking at my pictures, I have such a different glow about me on that day that I’m not sure I’ll ever see again. It was because I relaxed that it happened. At that point, you just need to let go and enjoy it.

I have to say, I didn’t really get a chance to “enjoy” my wedding. I was a ball of nerves the whole day and passed out feeling nauseated at like 11 p.m. My marriage is awesome, though.

I worried I was going to be really stressed and distracted on our wedding day. Honestly as soon as I was in my dress everything else just kind of melted away and I could not stop smiling! Right before the wedding is most stressful but I think day of you’ll really just enjoy the moment!

Boy are you NOT alone at all!!! I had a panic attack over my engagement photos…that scared me cuz I’m like if i’m anything like this on my wedding day how will I function? I definitely do I see AMAZING wedding photos and I always say a little prayer like God PLZ let me radiate like this on my wedding day. But I think once you are surrounded by all that love and awesomeness…u wont have a CHOICE but to be happy 🙂

I mean, we had a good time, and we loved the photographer, but I just feel like “why dont i look better” I mean, sometimes i look better when im out with my friends… And im aware that sounds sooo superficial, but i mean, hey… what bride is sitting there going ” i hope i look like hell on my wedding day”
and mine so much isnt the looks, im just hoping it all works out.
Maybe this is steming from Fiance pissing me off a lot lately!! lol
