12 Thoughts Every Bride Has While Standing at the Altar

So What Does A Bride Think On Her Big Day??

1. **No thoughts**

Some moments leave you speechless. Other ones leave you thoughtless. The enormity of the affair that is your wedding ceremony can be a lot for a girl and her brain to handle. Try to kill the crickets in your mind and focus on the man in front of you, and the life you have to look forward to together.

2. I hope I don’t mess up the vows.

“What if I don’t say the vows correctly?” “Will they still let us get married if I say ‘I will’ instead of ‘I do’?” The officiant will not shut down the affair if you mess up one word in your vows. The worst thing that could happen is that you say something slightly humorous and your guests erupt in laughter. Keep in mind that any mistakes will make for great memories, so don’t stress!

3. Stand straight, suck in.

Standing up at the altar, you and your groom will be on full display for all to see. Guests will be listening to the ceremony and cherishing the moment, but also looking over you and your dress. Depending on the way you situate your guest seating, your dress, and body, will be the center of attention. It is perfectly normal to be momentarily self-conscious, but don’t let the thought completely absorb your thoughts. Remember, you look beautiful and everyone in the audience loves you and thinks so too!

4. Why did I pick such an uncomfortable dress?

The emotional high of selecting a wedding dress can make you immune to how uncomfortable your dress actually is. There’s nothing like standing at the altar for a little dose of reality! You make look great and your dress fits like a glove, but your husband and guests have no idea how itchy, hot, and constricted you actually feel. If you have yet to get married, think about a second, more casual dress for your reception, or simply choosing a more comfortable dress in the first place. For those who have gotten married and suffered through their discomfort, you are our heroes.

5. Ahhhhh!

It’s okay to freak out a little bit as you are standing at the altar. Finally sealing your love in marriage is a big commitment and not one that should be lightly. But hopefully you have seriously considered this decision before the actual day of your wedding. When you are tempted to hyperventilate or run back down the aisle, reassure yourself with all the reasons why you love your man.


While coming to terms with the serious step you are taking is scary, it is also extremely exciting. You are marrying the man of your dreams! You get to spend the rest of your life with him! You are surrounded by your favorite people! You are about to throw a great party! Get excited!

7. My husband is a stud.

Standing face-to-face with the man of your dreams could make any girl weak in her knees. He is looking his best in that spiffy suit and tie. Staring into his sparkling and happy eyes, it will be difficult to look at anything or anyone else. Just remember, that he is thinking the same thing about you.

8. Did I just say husband?

Yes, you did. From now on, he is no longer your boyfriend. He is no longer your fiancé. He is your HUSBAND! While this is an exciting reality that will put a smile on your face, you might not want to spend the whole ceremony thinking about how you will now introduce your significant other. Focus on actually making him your hubby first.

9. Cake.

Hey, hunger is inevitable. You can’t blame a girl if her stomach starts growling in the middle of her wedding ceremony. After planning the meal and selecting the cake so carefully, you are bound to be excited to actually take part.

10. Don’t cry.

A wedding ceremony is a very emotional event and tears are common for both the bride and the groom. But unlike the groom, you spent hours getting your wedding day look just right. You don’t want one spirt of emotion to ruin your makeup! You still have pictures, the reception, and the rest of the day to get through! But just a note, feel free to let the tears flow if the moment really hits you. You can always touch up your makeup before moving on with the rest of your big day.

11. Weddings are strange.

Weddings are chock full of traditions. Some are legitimate and worth maintaining. Others are just weird and deserve to be booted. But no matter how conventional or unconventional your big day is, as long as it ends with you officially married to the man of your dreams, it was a success.

12. This is the best day of my life.

You will remember this day for the rest of your life, and it quite possibly will be the best one of your life. Try not to focus too much on the past or look too far into the future. Cherish the moment. Enjoy every second.
