Eve of Wedding

June 4 2013

On 1 June 2013, I married the best man in the world! The day before it, I was a mess.

In the stressful times leading up to the wedding, everyone assured me that it will be worth it and the day of — everything will be wonderful. I doubted that at times, but they were right. It turned out to be the best day of my life.

The morning began with Dave and me running errands … and realizing that Men’s wearhouse does not carry his tux size. We called around to various places trying to locate an appropriate shirt. This is not the way to start off the eve of the wedding.

The rehearsal itself was a bit chaotic. My father showed up an hour late and my aunts barely made it due to traffic getting to the location. No one seemed to be listening to me … and David and I still had not memorized our vows. Needless to say, I probably seemed very stressed and worried to all, because I was. At the rehearsal dinner, we’ll just say that tensions were high. The food was excellent (and abundant).

I returned home around 11 or 11:30 the night before the wedding. After sending an email to the bridal party and family about last minute details, I went to bed. But, I didn’t go to sleep until 4:30. I was practicing my vows in bed. Then all of a sudden it hit me and I was too nervous to sleep. I tossed and turned, and I am not entirely convinced that I ever really fell asleep.
