Thanks for all the suggetions! I will try to remember the flowers, Jeanne. Thanks for the luggage info, KC. I'll tell my mom to make sure she checks the luggage with the buckets. I'd hate to be stuck having all our stuff looked through. I will be sure to post a trip report when we get back. My brother's going to take digital pictures, so I'll try to figure out how to put them on the site. 23 days to go!!

Turnbun - are you more excited about the wedding or the trip. Me...I was excited about the trip. It didn't hit me I was getting married until about 4 pm the day of the wedding...WHOA!
Funny about customs, they didn't look through any of our stuff, and when we had so obviously overbought in duty-free, the guy shrugged and waved us through.
Maybe it depends on who you get!

Hey, it's me, Turnbun (on a different computer)! Well, let's see. I think I'm very excited about the wedding although it still hasn't totally sunk in that I'm getting married. I feel like I should feel "different" or something, but that isn't the case.
I'm VERY VERY excited about the trip! I have saved up all my vacation time for the Belize trip and a trip to Hungary we'll be taking over Christmas, so I am about as stressed as they come since I've taken no vacation this year thus far! UGH!! But only three more weeks, and I'll be drinking Belikins and panty rippers and getting a nice tan!! YIPPEE!!!!!
So you got pretty nervous right before the ceremony, huh? I'll probably have an anxiety attack or something. Better take some medicine for that - champagne???

Turnbun - I started having anxiety attacks a few weeks before the wedding - just here and there for the first six weeks, but on my last day of work they threw me a shower, and I had a panic attack! I couldn't breathe, then I couldn't even LOOK at anyone, I freaked. I calmed down, but when it was time for the ceremony, I freaked...I was so afraid to look at Bill, my whole body was shaking, I felt like I was about to pass out. Then we were married and it was like nothing happened! I have felt the same as I did before we "did it" ever since. Strange....
As for medication, just about anything will do - champagne...tequila...VALIUM....

I didn't get nervous at all. I kept thinking I would at some point. I was just so excited to be marrying the love of my life. Everyone around me kept asking, "Are you nervous?" But I wasn't, not even for a second. Walking out the door and seeing his smile for the first time that day was the best moment of my life. As for the ceremony, I cried through the whole thing, so I would recommend a handkerchief. Good luck. I know that everything will be wonderful.

I am not really nervous about getting married at all. I'm certain I'm marrying "the one." I'm not really nervous about anything except that something may go wrong to prevent it from happening. That "Murphy's Law" mentality that is SO bad for you. I'm thinking positive....

You know what, something *is* going to go wrong. It won't be what you think and it won't be something you can plan for, but with all the different pieces that have to come together, it's just inevitable. The best thing to do is go into it with the mindset that it doesn't HAVE to go exactly as you planned and it's still going to be ok. I am NOT trying to sound negative, but if you expect something - whatever it may be - to go off-kilter, you are going to be less worried about it. In the end, all that matters is that you marry the man you love, right?

At our wedding, a fire alarm went off during the middle of the reception. Fire trucks and everything. False alarm, luckily, but because we didn't freak out, most people reacted with humor. It will make a great story to tell our kids, eventually. [shoot, should have thought to get someone take pix of the trucks. missed opportunity there.]

That's true, something probably will go wrong. In my case, the electricity went off while we were trying to get ready. It was very hot with no air conditioning. We ended up sitting on the porch of the casita painting our toenails while they fixed the problem. It put the wedding back a little, but no big deal. I even messed up my vows. Oh well! We have something to laugh about now.
