I've go some crazy anxiety that's for sure. @bitbit

My leading up I was totally fine. Morning of, fine. Ceremony, fine. For whatever reason cocktail hour through the reception anytime food or drink came near my mouth I was nauseous and my mouth would water. I felt anxious too. Only thing that helped was cold water
I think with my dress and the heat of the day (even
Though all events were inside) I was so hot and sweaty I couldnt deal with the adrenaline.
At this point, everything should be settled and set up. If not, let it go. You've done all the planning, all the prep, and paid (almost) all the vendors. Just enjoy these last few weeks!
Take in every moment of your wedding day, especially the moment I always write about on here - right at the end of your ceremony and before you walk out together, take a second and look around and soak in the memory of all your friends and family clapping in total happiness for you and your new spouse. It's such a powerful, joyous moment. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it!
Date twin! I can definitely relate to how you are feeling. I am getting really nervous for the ceremony. Not only am I worried about having all eyes on me, I also don't want to cry the entire time. I had my bridal shower yesterday and felt so awkward sitting there and opening gifts, with all my guests staring at me. Haha. I have always been more shy and reserved though.
I'm starting to freak out about the first dance. I don't mind being the center of attention but for some reason, that dance has me nervous. We've practiced a couple times at home but didn't do any dance lessons
I was also surprised I didn't cry at all (watching say yes to the dress makes me cry) and my husband cried like 10 times and he never cries. I was nervous at first about the ceremony, walking down the aisle, first dance and father/daughter dance (my dad and I choreographed something) but as soon as we did a first look HIGHLY RECOMMEND all nerves left me. Minus the nausea. Not sure what was up with that. Probably the flights for honeymoon 2 days later. I HATE flying and subconsciously have random anxiety leading up to it.
Once the day gets here things will be as they'll be. Let it all go and enjoy the moments.
I threw up about four times last week. I'm a mixed bag of emotions right now. Crazy because I have had a very stress free time planning and everything is done...I'm with the PP's...the thought of all eyes on me makes me a little nuts!!
The biggest thing I'm nervous about is the first kiss. I hate PDA and no one in my family shows affection. Ive been yelled at for leaning into FH at my parents when watching a movie.
Aside from that, opening presents at my bachelorette has taken the front seat recently. Also, my mom told me not to wear a dress and my MOH backed her up saying it will be fine but the games are interactive.
If you're worried about the first dance, don't be! People watch for about 15 seconds, then get bored and start whispering to each other. Use it as a time to talk to your spouse or sing to each other. You don't need to do anything else but sway and look happy!
DH can't hold a beat to save his life unless he's wasted. We didn't have anything to drink between the ceremony and reception and we did our first dance right after we were announced. So I led and he followed! Our cutest photos are actually of us laughing with each other about it.
Everything will be fine!
@Colleen, I'd be nervous about my bachelorette with that information too! A friend passed some advice to me she got from her photographer about the kiss: Keep your arms on each other's waists, close your eyes, lean in to just touch lips, count to three, then pull back, open your eyes and smile at each other. It photographs well and isn't too mushy or uncomfortable. You can always set a phone up and video you and FH practicing to see how it looks!
