    I guess my biggest worry is that I'll look awful in my dress.

    I was terrified that I would trip and fall or that my boobs would come out of my dress.

    neither happened.

    That I will fall down the steps in my dress.

    My biggest wedding worry is being sick on my wedding day.  I'm not too worried about other logistics, but it would really suck be really sick on a day you spent a lot of time and money planning and can't reschedule.

    CEW I was scared of walking up and down the steps to the altar so I showed FI how I would need to hold my dress with one hand and how to not make me fall down.  :)

    rain during my outside beach wedding.

    Hell yeah..A damm Tropical Strom follow me from the island to Cape May NJ and proceeded to dump 55+ mph wind driven rains on my wedding day.  My tent collapsed the morning of, the wind was so strong you could not hear us say our vows.

    Luckily we are pretty chill people and still had the time of our lives and had a good story..






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    Thanks mag.  I have the occasional nightmare that I'm going to sit down and split the butt, though!

    DItto mag - I was afraid our guests would not have a good time and go home thinking our wedding sucked.  It was not warranted.  I didn't worry about the cake and should have, because it fell over.  But I didn't care, since it was still delicious and everyone raved about it.

    Biggest fear was that the weather would turn bad and people either wouldn't make it or wouldn't be able to leave.  Gotta love the mountains.

    After that, I worried that the food would suck, people wouldn't like the brunch concept and that I looked awful in my dress.

    I was also terrified that people would see the blue and orange wedding colors and think it was fugly, but it turned out so amazing.

    I was really worried that people wouldn't like riding around the city in the bus with us for 4 hours but everyone had a fabulous time.  It probably helped that we provided food and booze.

    I'm very worried that I'm going to get that nervous and have a panic attack or something.. I HATE being center of attention, and all eyes will be on me especially during the ceremony.. ugh.. scared something will go wrong due to me being so nervous...

    and just like some of the others mentioned.. I'm kinda worried people won't have a good time or won't dance.. I want everyone to enjoy them selves..


    My BIGGEST worries are that an unwanted guest will show up and ruin it.. (my older brother) yea he's not welcome at all from me or my family. Also if anyone gets to drunk,..

    Oh, I was also terrified that my family would be my family and fight all over the place and be nasty on the wedding day.  For the most part, they kept the crazy under control.
  • Options
    Oh and rain. Especially since someone cursed me last week and said that they hoped it would rain on my wedding day.
  • Options
    My biggest worry is that rain and/or wind will prevent us from being married on the helipad and we'll have to move to the inside option which is not nearly as spectacular.  I also worry that I won't fully live in the moment and the day will pass by too quickly.
  • Options
    That the groom would get cold feet and not be there. I had this nightmare, woke up in a cold sweat, and made him swear he'd not do that.

    No, it wasn't really warranted, but he was pretty nervous. He was the one in a cold sweat during the wedding. Most of the guests were afraid he was going to pass out. Make that worry #2.

    That no one would have fun and no, it wasn't warranted.  We've heard from many people that it was the best, most fun wedding they'd been to in a long time. 

    FWIW, it was the best, most fun wedding I'd been to ever, but I may be a little biased. Wink

    Oh, and I was worried that one of my BMs wouldn't make it beucase of the snow in Calgary.  I think it was a warranted worry becuase she almost didn't make it, but, in the end, she did and all was good.

    Weather. Yay January!

    Illness, but I got my H1N1 shot today, so that cuts down the odds of that happening.

    Not getting a marriage license: our only chance to get it is literally the Friday before the ceremony.

    I'm with Missy. I have no reason to believe FI will get cold feet and not show up.  But that's pretty much the only thing I'm truly worried about.  Murphey's Law was actually written because of my family, I'm pretty sure, so I already know nothing will go exaclty according to plan. So as long as FI is H by the end of the day, the rest of the details can suck it.

    That it will rain.  That the food will be WAY slow coming out of the kitchen and we won't have gotten everyone dinner by the end of the reception.

    My biggest wedding fear is probably that no one will come besides those that are in the wedding.  Next to that I'm afraid that even if people do come they won't have fun.

    My biggest worry is that my mom's side of the family and my dad's side will get into a big fight. This happened at my sister's high school graduation in public. I hope they will be able to act like adults for a wedding, especially since they will be on opposite sides of the room from one another, with FI's family between them.

    that my mom would die before the wedding. it was warranted. she died 2 months prior.

    God jill, that always pulls at my heart.  I had 4 years and I was a basket case for the wedding.  Really don't know how you did it:(

    i don't know how i did either. i went back and forth from inconsolable lunatic to throwing myself into wedding projects as a distraction.

    really, it all hit me after the honeymoon (or maybe during the honeymoon, the night i cried myself to sleep after watching most of "p.s. i love you". once i got back to normal life the reality hit me, and i haven't recovered since.

    really, i didn't do anything except grieve. and grieve hard. longtime.

    That just sounds heartbreakingly sad.  I'm so sorry.

    It is a neverending grief.  For me it goes in waves of severity.  Sometimes I am ok, then I obsess about it for months.  It seems to go through phases, and time has nothing to do with it.  The 4th year was way harder than the 3rd.

    I was terrified that my sister, who didn't come because she wasn't a bridesmaid (she didn't want to be when I asked her), was going to actually show up and cause a scene.

    My sis was sick on her wedding day & had a blast anyway, if it helps allay your fear.<div>
    </div><div>Mine was the same worry I have <strong>every</strong> time I've thrown a party since I was a kid - that everyone would think it was lame.  It wasn't a valid worry, same as it never has been.</div>
