Help I'm stressing! Anyone concerned with getting sick, burned etc...before wedding?
Posted 14 July 2010 - 04:08 PM
We're going down 3 nights before our actual ceremony. Originally I wanted to get in to Punta Cana the day before the ceremony but now our dates been moved. I wanted to get there right before so I could relax the rest of the week & not stress about disaster.
Is anyone else concerned about getting sick, burned, tanlines, breaking out, or gaining weight before ceremony? Call me paranoid but I'm super concerned that I'm going to get sick on my wedding day and feel & look like crap. So now I'm thinking I'm only going to eat pre-packaged foods for the 3 days before wedding. I totally feel like Charlotte on Sex in City...lol ... I also wouldn't want to drink too much before (like at all) and gain weight and/or break out because of any food and alcohol. Plus I'm afraid of getting burned or horrible tan lines, and bandeau tops are not an option for me (my ta ta's need some support). My FI thinks I'm being paranoid but I just don't feel like I'll be able to relax before the wedding day & it's kind of a waste to go 3 days before if I'm just trying to prevent all the what if's. We can reschedule flights & stay longer after wedding but it's going to cost $400+ more and I don't know if it's worth it.
Does anyone else stress about these things or actually had disaster happen on/before wedding? How long before the ceremony is everyone else flying down?

I do feel your worries though about drinking/eating too much or getting tan lines. I am bringing an aerosol SPF100 to do my chest/arms and will just be layering it on all the time! I am so pale and burn really easy so I think I will fake and bake before hand too(I know it is bad for me, but I am just doing it this once for my wedding). And if all else fails we can just use bronzer or photo shop!!
Try and enjoy those 3 days too as they are part of your wedding vacation and they set the tone for your guests and your wedding day. I hope you can feel a little less stressed!!

But to be honest, the days before the ceremony were not like my normal sit on the beach and eat/drink junk for hours type of vacation. We had meetings with the WC, had to put together OOT bags, and the biggest thing is that we tried to hang out with the guests that we don't see very often. That definitely kept me out of the sun and my mind off of food and calorie filled drinks.
Just bring lots of suncreen and go prepared to say no to a couple of drinks and tempting treats before the ceremony. You will be fine!

My FI insists that yes, we're getting married but that i also need to enjoy our time there. i agree, but i will not be relaxing until the ceremony starts and i know that it's all ok now. i will not be out in the sun much for those two days and will definately NOT be drinking at all the night before (although it'd be the same if the wedding was here).
as for the food, i've never gotten really sick (fingers crossed, knock on wood, etc, etc, etc) at an AI before, but i think you'll know by the first day what your body will and wont tolerate. there are foods at each resort we've been to that my tummy just doesn't like; TMI, but as soon as i get any kind of weird stomach feeling, BEFORE i even get sick, i pop some imodium and stay away from that food for the rest of the trip, lol! i also always bring some type of immune booster...the one i've found that works best for me is the CVS brand of airborn; the kind that dissolves in your mouth. first sign of a sore throat or any sneezing and i pop those religiously every three hours for the rest of the day. the next day i wake up and nothing!! i haven't had a full-on cold since i discovered these when we went to vegas last year!!
also remember to take a DEEP breath b/c you will definately make yourself sick if your super stressed.
so i guess you and I both need to take my FIs advice and wuuussaa--as much as a bride can of course

Once you feel prepared, you'll likely to realize you can deal with anything and relax!

I hope I can relax before hand though. It would be nice for it to still feel like a "real" vacation and not just avoiding disaster.
