That my sister will be high as a kite and cause a ruckus. You were probably looking for something lighter, like a broken dress zipper, but really, I just wanted my sister to have it together for ONE DAY! Aside from her – a more trivial worry is that my acne will flare up and I will have to do a major makeup job to have a flawless face.

My grandmother being there. I know that sounds terrible, but she’s mentally ill, manipulative, verbally abusive, and cruel. She will throw one of her trademark screaming tantrums in front of The Boy’s prim-and-proper family; I just know it.

Nobody wants her there, not even Mom, but she says we HAVE to invite the GrandMonster…

I perfect ‘Worry Wart’ like it’s no one’s business.  So I have a laundry list of worries about my wedding day:

– Me passing out at the altar… in front of everyone.

– Me barfing at the altar… in front of everyone.

– Fiance passing out/barfing at the altar… in front of everyone.

– Me tripping as I walk down the aisle.

– Family drama- when alcohol is in the mix, you never can tell what could happen (fist fights?  verbal altercations?  oh gawd…).

– A guest or loved one getting hurt or becoming sick during the course of the night.  

– Getting my period on my wedding day and dealing with the crampy, bloaty feeling involved with it.

– Me getting sick with some horrid illness on my wedding day.  Same fear for Fiance.

– Ceremony music not playing correct.

Um… I could go on.  But perhaps I should stop as I’m freaking myself out even more.  Sealed

1. My Future Father-In-Law can’t really speak English, but the more he drinks, the more he believes in his skills.  I fear that he might harass people with bizarre, barely comprehensible questions if he drinks a lot.

2. That my Fiance and his parents, who are flying in just before the wedding, have flight delays or cancelations.

3. That I will get the mother of all cold sores just in time for the wedding.

That his ex will somehow find out where we’re getting married and come bursting through the doors at either the reception, the ceremony or both. This is why I really want to get married in Vegas and then return here for a reception.

@trailmix – I worry about that too. So much so that we might not have a dancing reception 🙁

All the kids acting up 🙁 I love them very much but didn’t want them at the wedding. Since they’re all nieces/nephews (and not like cousins or friends kids) we didn’t have a choice, their parents are all in the wedding. I’m trying to avoid a birthday party scene by setting up a separate kids room, but I don’t know how it’s going to work out :(.

I’m not worried about the guests or having a great party…I’m mostly concerned about the vendors! Give people a little bit of power and they’ll walk all over you. I can see it now: the photographer ignores my requests and takes (bad) pictures of me while I’m dressing, the flowers are basketball bouquets with calla lilies and roses and all the other things I don’t want, none of the food turns out well…ugh. Can I just do everything by myself? Pleaaaaase?

I worry that I’ll get a migraine 🙁 Or have stomach problems (I have a nervous tummy). And like others, I worry that no one will dance.

That on the day of my wedding, everyone will just not want to come celebrate with us…

Yes! I feared that NO ONE would show up, that I would get the flu that day or the day before, that I would be too busy throwing up (from nerves) to walk down the aisle…. None of those things happened, of course. But I made myself a wreck worrying about them.
