That the DJ played the wrong freaking song (which was later confirmed when I watched my wedding video). Oh and don’t trip!

I think I was thinking the same thing as everyone else:

* Don’t trip!

* Wow! There’s more people here than I thought!

* Why is everyone staring at me? Oh yeah, I’m the bride!

* I really hate this lipstick.  My lips are so dry!  I can’t lick them because that will look awful on video!

* I think I have lockjaw from smiling so much!

* Oh there’s my FI!  Wait a second!  He’s going to be my HUSBAND in less than 30 minutes!

* Why is so-and-so late?

I didn’t cry at all although DH was completely welled up at the front of the church.  I just remember the walk down the aisle feeling really long!

@Nona99:  What poem is this from?  I’ve tried googling it and it just keeps coming up with ‘The Notebook’ (which I’ve not seen…..)

The PPs have pretty much summed it up. Don’t fall, OMG, I’m getting married, etc..

Our beach wedding — Walking in the sand….

Oh gosh this is it…please dont let this sand fow up my walking.

Today is so so beautiful. Even the small amout of clouds are beautiful designs. Saying thanks to my grandma in heaven cause I know she wouldnt let it rain on our day — then the tears start cause I wish she was there

Wow this is so cool, everyone is looking at me.

Fiance looks so handsome and a little nervous. Can’t wait to hold his hand.

Mom and Gram did awesome decorating the arch.

Ahhh all this hard work paid off 🙂 I love my dress

That I wished we had music playing during our JOP ceremony processional. I said this to my beau, and he started humming. Then all I could think was that I was by far the luckiest human being on the planet.

@crayfish:  I swear, a lot. But for some reason the thoughts that people swore are way funnier to me. I’m so sorry you tripped! You’re probably the only one who remembers.

I was thinking: “OHMYGOD, this is happening. It’s finally happening. WHAT am I doing? I’m insane. Don’t fall. Don’t fall. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON’T FALL! Ariel didn’t fall out of my bouquet, did she?** Nope, still there. Good. Don’t cry… don’t cry… as long as dad doesn’t cry I’ll be good. *peek* GOD. Dad’s crying. And here come the tears. AW! (husband) sounds so good singing me down the aisle! I see he didn’t fix his hair…. Oh well. Oh no.. the alter stairs.. don’t fall! *Steps on dress* GREAT. Idiot. It’s a good thing your dress isn’t strapless you idiot!” 

LOL, I was kind of freaking out. BUT SO EXCITED. 


**A lady at my church who I was very close to bought me this little Ariel figurine to put in my bouquet since The Little Mermaid is my all time favorite movie ever! It was to keep me from getting nervous and I thought it was the sweetest thing ever 🙂

“There are a lot of people here.  Why is everyone staring at me!  Just look at Fiance, Just look at Fiance, Just look at Fiance, don’t turn your head! Just look at Fiance.  Safe.”


I don’t know why it never occurred to me that everyone would be looking at me, but I nearly ran back inside.  My stepdad was making me laugh the whole way down the aisle too, so we didn’t start to cry.

Omg, this is really MY wedding and I am walking down the aisle with my dad.  Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t trip, don’t cry.  Look up, smile, oh there is so and so, oh maybe I should look at DH, don’t cry, oh there is so and so.  And on and on until I finally made it.  I was battling tears (I am a cryer) the whole way and then when we finally got to all the seated guests seeing the faces and smiles of our friends and family calmed me down tremendously.
