I had my first bride panic moment. Nothing major - no shallow breathing, cold sweat, or dizziness - but a moment of pure, blood chilling, my stomach lurched bridal panic. What induced this you ask? Watching a silly dress show on WE tv. As I think about it now I'm not even sure what I was panicking about...up. No real idea.
I tend to get very stressed about weddings. I wasn't a real fan of them even until a few years ago. I always seemed to get sick right in time for someone else's big day. Mr. ST's sister got married two years ago. I wasn't asked to be in the wedding party but was around to be a larger helped the day of and run errands/fix tuxes/repair dresses. The night before I began showing signs of bronchitis - my usual go to sickness when I'm stressed and crazed. I was miserable at the reception because I felt so lousy. My point is that this has happened at most wedding to me. I was beginning to think I was allergic to weddings! I have a very good friend getting married in less than 60 days. While not in the bridal party I am reading at the ceremony. I have had the hardest time getting in touch with her - I am certain she is busy and has actual pressing matters at hand about her own day. Did this cause my panic?
I'm glad we have a long engagement because I plan to have everything ironed out and done waaaay before the actual big day. So this leaves me puzzled as to WHY the panic. Am I just crazy, or am I normal? Should I be experiencing this on occasion? *sigh* Maybe I just needed to vent. :-)
I also apologize for no funny pictures to entertain you. My crackberry won't let me upload any photos right now.
