How on earth am I going to make it through our wedding day?
Why, after all these years of never crying, am I all of a sudden so emotional? Is it a sign of getting old? Is it possible that all those years of not crying are all of a sudden bubbling over when insignificant evens happen, like Dumbledore dying or getting to the end of Marley & Me and knowing what was going to happen and 'skipping over' that part?
So, in an effort to not be a bubbling mess on our wedding day and avoid a number of pictures with me and my ugly cry face, I have decided to make a conscious effort to embrace the emotion in me and not turn up with an ugly cry face a la Dawson:
No, that will definitely not do for our wedding day! I will need to practice smiling through it, and I already have a few friends who I have asked to position themselves down the aisle and are instructed to "do something funny!" if I look like im on the verge of tears!
Another staple I will be ensuring to have on hand will be strategically placing a few of my trusty hanky's - one (or 10) in both my Dad's jacket and in my fiance/hubby's pocket!!
My massage therapist also recommended getting out Harry Potter or Marley and me a few days before the wedding and just having a big old cry, apparently its very good for your chest muscles and just generally relaxing everything? Who knew?
