    so i had my interview with the ceremony registrar yesterday with my OH, he had to go in first and i was sat outside in the waiting room by myself and omg i was so nervous doing just that little thing, not that i thought i would say something wrong or anything just the fact that it was a major part in us getting married to get this done and it was a massive step closer to the day...i was like shaking! lol and it made me think I'm going to be 10 times worse on the day! its not nerves that i don't want to get married not at all i know my OH is the one its just the whole realisation that this is MY WEDDING DAY! something that iv thought about since i was about 5 years old (like me and my friend would have little pretend weddings etc as kids do) but the thought that is actually MY day now its quite overwhelming! and i worry how i will deal with the nerves on the day! anyone else feel the same?

    Hiya,

    I often get little bouts of overexcitement and get overwhelmed!! I think I will more so after Christmas when it will be less than 5 months away and the planning cranks up a notch!
    I think the main factor in my nervousness is having everyone looking at me when walking down the ailse, its kind of daunting as I'm a shy person and get embarrassed when people stare or look at me!!
    I think I might a diazepam to calm me on the day!

    I'm not normally a nervous person but I am quite shy.. I should be okay on the day as we are only inviting close family and friends so I will feel comfortable around them all. I think I will be hugely emotional though. I could well up now just thinking about the day and the meaning of it.. I reckon I will be blubbering all day!! xx

    We are giving notice 2 weeks yesterday, and I k now what you mean, I'm so excited but really nervous of this because its a major party of getting married. Flowers/cake & decorations etc even the dress is optional, but this is something you have to do, and makes it real.

    Aside from the nervousness, I am glad we are having friends and family there when we make our wedding vows to one another. I think after the ceremony I'll be able to relax more.
    It sometimes still feels a bit surreal that I am actually getting married and having a wedding day! Even though I am 30. I am more looking forward to the start of our marriage with our honeymoon and beginning our life and husband and wife. xo

    I can totally relate to not feeling as if it's you getting married. It feels so weird making wedding plans - how grown up and adult-like!! I've still got quite a while to go yet though, so wonder how I will feel when I get to your stages.. xx

    Oh and I know what you mean about the dresses! I haven't tried any on yet, but when we were at the national wedding show my OH was like 'go on, have a look' and I was delicately pulling them out to have a look, but I felt like a little girl looking at all the big girls' dressing up clothes haha xx

    I found that I got excited anytime we did anything wedding related, but had to keep reminding myself that it was us that were getting married, and we weren't just watching someone else as we have done so many times. On the day I was only nervous about everything going smoothly, and once I got to the church I relaxed completely.

    My moment of being overwhelmed was as the doors opened to our wedding room, for me to walk into.

    I am absolutely terrified at the thought of walking down the aisle and everyone looking at me in a big face of indistinguishable faces!! I am trying not to think of that and just think about the end result, but sometimes I cant help it. When we had our meeting with the vicar I came out shaking because it made it all so real. Sometimes I wish we could be married without the ceremony at all!!

    I'm worried about getting emotional during the vows and not being able to speak. I'm convinced I'll cry. The walking down the aisle is a worry too. When OH proposed, my legs went to jelly and were shaking so bad I couldn't walk. He practically carried me to a bench after I said yes.

    I thought I would be horrendous when it came to nerves on the day but I really wasn't! I got a little nervous just before I walked into the church but I took my time walking down the aisle and looked at all my guests who were smiling at me and I was immediately put at ease! I had a little wobble when saying my vows but didn't cry once and had a huge grin on my face the whole time. I was more excited and happy than nervous in the end, and I am someone who hates being the centre of attention! You really don't have anything to worry about :) xxx

    I have no idea how I'll feel! I probably will be pretty nervous about being the centre of attention. I'm worried about stumbling down the aisle too! It does all feel very surreal at the moment! Xxx

    I think I'll cry walking down and that's the most nerve wrecking part while everyone's staring at you walking down!

    I'm starting to get butterfly's now! But it still hasn't hit me. We had our church rehearsal last night and my oh got really overwhelmed. He start laughing half way through and then all of a sudden his eyes filled up. So I made a joke about him laughing because I know if I didn't he would have start crying.
    I'm a little bit scared of tripping too as my dress is quite big so I went to my friends last night and practiced walking in it. So think I'm going to be ok. Xx

    I was excited but not overwhelmed or nervous until I think the day before when I think e emotions caught up with me lol. My mum and sister thought I'd gone all funny cos I was so quiet at dinner with the entire family, grandmother parents, sister, BIL, aunts and cousins. Hubby thought I went weird too.

    Enjoy all the emotions in the run up to the wedding, it's magical x

    The planning hasn't really stressed me out at all. I think I'm more worried about the day itself when all the attention will be on us. We're not used to it and it's going to be really weird. We both volunteer for a greyhound walking charity and I've stood in front of 100+ people telling them to keep their dogs on a lead without a problem, so my Mum and a couple of friends have advised me to treat the wedding in the same way. We're both quite shy and don't particularly like attention.

    I think I will probably cry too because we've been through quite a lot over the years we've been together and we've waited a long time for our special day
