    Great thread guys! Def ups the aawwww factor!
    Well here is my story....
    I had been teasing my DH for ages about whether he would cry at the ceremony or not (he was insistant that he wouldn't) I was sure I would be a wreck as I am a major worrier and stress about everything! He is a very relaxed and easy going person. We stayed together the night before and had breakfast with each other but then I didn't see him for the rest of the day, I was good till I got my hair and makeup done but then started to feel a little tense, my mom got me a glass of brandy (uuggh! But she insisted that it would calm my stomach as I had been sick for a couple of days prior!) It helped a LOT! lol!
    I was fine after that but I second what Christa said...it all went by sooo fast and was a bit surreal really, like it was happening to someone else! My brothers walked me down the aisle and looking back I just felt so at peace with everything, it just felt like this was so right there was no point in being nervous! I was grinning at everyone like crazy and trying to make myself stop!(I do remember thinking after that I walked down the aisle too fast though! Just wanted to get there fast I guess! lol!) When I got to my husband to be he was a total wreck! Couldn't stop crying! (he has been duly teased about this ever since!) He was so nervous that when he was supposed to say I do... he practically yelled YES! After everyone stopped laughing we finished up without a hitch and were fine! Talk about role reversal!

        I had been a bit nervous and jittery a couple of weeks before the wedding. It had nothing to do with Jay or my feelings for him. I have always knew he was the one, the love of my life. It just had to do with being married before, knowing how serious and important marriage is and fears related to my first marriage falling apart. A friend of mine who had also been a 2nd time bride took me aside a week before the wedding and told me that everything I was feeling was so normal and that she could tell how much I loved Jay and how much he loved me. She said..don't worry..it will get worse and that she was a wreck when she got married but felt wonderful after. So here I am thinking "Great...I am going to be a nut on my wedding day and will need a bottle of booze...ugh"

        Jay and I had separate rooms the night before. I cried because I didn't want to be a loon on my wedding day. I must have prayed for like an hour asking God to please remove the looniness from me. I wanted Jay to have an excited happy bride not a nut. Then I fell asleep.

        I woke to the sun shining and just feeling so happy and calm. I had this feeling like I've never had in my life...absolute peace and certainy. It felt like my heart was wrapped in cashmere. I took little delays and mishaps in stride. I joked with everyone....had one cig and 2 mimmosas. I practically sprinted down the aisle because i just couldn't wait to marry Jay. The ceremony seemed to take forver even though it was just 15 minutes. I just wanted to be married and once we could kiss, I couldn't stop kissing my husband. This was the best moment of my life.

            Funny that he was the one to lose it, but soooo cute at the same time!

            LOVE that! Isn't it the best feeling? Absolute peace and certainty is a great way to phrase it :o)

              This thread makes me so nervous too, just reading all your stories is making my stomach flutter, my throat close and my eyes get teary. I'm getting close now so I think it's all starting to hit me, and I've been very emotional the last week or so.

              I just hope I don't cry, or I hope I don't cry a lot a little teary eye would be fine. I just don't want to ball.

              I'll have to remember to try to cry the night before, get it out of my system. then I'll be fine.

                That was beautifully written and just so sincere. Thanks for sharing, you just made me tear up at work!

                  The day of the Cabo wedding I was fine. Really happy!
                  The court wedding date in OC I was a wreck....I didn't think I was going to be nervous at all and that Erik was going to be nervous.....Well it was just the opposite.

                  When we got to the courthouse (I was with my parents, Erik was already there with his parents) I was nervous to the point that I was going to pass out...don't ask me why :) I also was sweating a lot....and it was actually pretty cold in the room.

                  Then when the actual ceremony happened Erik had to hold my hands so I wouldn't fall over...He was my strength through out the ceremony :)
                  Then at the end when we kissed I turned to everyone and started to cry....LOL yup funny.

                  Erik was as cool as water (sorry don't know if that makes sense lol)....He wasn't nervous at all but very calm and smiling....

                  I love him so much....(though right now he's mad at me )

                    I know I'm going to sound crazy, but the fifteen minutes leading up to the start of the wedding were incredibly surreal, almost like I was watching everything rather than being a part of it. I walked through the hotel lobby, I was handed my bouquet, and I headed out onto the walkway that would lead down to the beach, but I don't remember feeling the floor beneath my feet.

                    Then I looked down to the beach, and saw the guests, the chairs, the ocean, and my fiance facing away from where I was. Almost the second I looked up, he turned around, and from that moment on I'm not sure I saw anything but his face as he watched me walk towards him. I saw him take a deep breath, which I knew meant he was trying not to cry, and all I could do was smile to myself.

                    It seemed to only take a second to get to the end of the aisle where he took my hand, and it was the best feeling in the world to finally be where we were.
