Each bride has different fears on her wedding day. Some fear the dress won't fit or that none of the guests will show up. Others fear the flowers will wilt, the cake will be dry, or they will forget the steps to their choreographed first dance. Those fears haven't even crossed my mind yet. Which ones have??
Fear #1: The excruciatingly long church aisle

Cross my heart, I swear that our church aisle is longer than this one. You can see from the second picture in this post that where the groomsmen are standing is actually in the middle of the church (the main aisle is intersected by another aisle in the middle of the church)...the middle!!! Do you see how far away the front of the church is?!?! It will be the longest walk of my life. Gotta keep my eyes on the prize as Mommy would say.

Fear #2: Stairs.

(bobbi + mike)

Thank the Lord Almighty that our venue doesn't come equipped with these stairs. Can you imagine being introduced into your reception and take a tumble down these stairs?! Please do avoid at all costs. The only steps I will be facing on our wedding day are the ones outside the church. And let me tell you, I will be taking them one by one.

What are your wedding day fears?!

You have a choreographed first dance???

nooooooo. do you think that Chris would go for that?! i was just saying that those that DO have a coreographed first dance might be a little nervous about it. that is ONE thing I don't have to worry about.

Is it weird that I'm worried about having to pee during the 1hr ceremony?

Rain. We're having our reception right on the ocean and I really want outdoor shots. Also, sweating. I don't want to be all gross!

jessica lynn said...

sweating (have i mentioned our church isnt air conditioned!?) and having to abandon ship to take a restroom break in the middle of the ceremony are 2 things i haven't even thought of yet. now i'm worried.

I'm worried about stairs (those stairs in that picture are part of our reception venue), rain and sweat! ugh! That's the stuff nightmares are made of!

I remember my sister was so worried she would be too big to fit the dress. She probably gained weight from all the anxiety.
