My wife and I officially got married last year when we were both living in South Korea, but since few of our friends or family were able to make the trip, we decided to have a U.S. ceremony on our first anniversary, including all of the trimmings.

Now, the rehearsal is tomorrow, the wedding ceremony is on Friday, and I can't help but feel as though I should be panicking. What to do, Chit-Chat? My part of the wedding checklist is done--kegs of beer have been ordered, thank-you cards for the wedding party have been written, reception hall is ready to go--but I have this sense that we're still missing something. And my wife is refusing to play games this week since we've been doing so many last-minute details.

On the other hand...hey, what could go wrong? It's not like we're actually getting married for the first time. If the preacher falls ill or the weather turns horrific, our status will be the same Friday evening as it is Friday morning. And yet...

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Panic if it makes you feel better.

And if you feel fine, then you should panic.

When given the option, panicking is always the right thing to do.

Should I panic?
Panic.
Panic, but with an erection.
Freak out until someone makes you breathe into a paper bag, then vomit.
Vanish for 24 hours only to return for the Five Stages of Bridely Wrath: Relief, Perturbation, Rage, Nakedness and Mad Ballin'.
Remain cool as a cucumber but rock the wedding "Comanche Style" in quiet rebellion.

There must have been some sort of mix up at the post office. My invitation hasn't arrived yet. If I didn't know better...

Don't sweat it. I wasn't nervous at all when I got married and you've already done that part.

You've been married for a year, there is no reason to panic.

My wife and I were married in a small ceremony six months before we had a formal celebration to which all of our friends and family were invited. We had a little planning anxiety about everything going off just right, but none of the "ohshitimgettingmarriedtodayandmylifeischangingforever" anxiety on the ceremony day. And there's no reason you should either.

Your level of anxiety shouldn't be any higher than: large dinner party/

My wife and I have renewed our wedding vows twice (5th and 10th anniversaries) and we used those services as an opportunity to do all the bizarre stuff we couldn't have got away with at our wedding, such as - showing clips of Eddie Izzard, and thereafter saying to people as they left "Thank you for flying Church of England. Cake or Death?"...having the theme music to Father Ted playing as people came in...allowing people to turn up wearing WHATEVER THEY WANTED...designated a play area for the little kids right at the front so they could see everything...and inviting the people we wanted to be there cos they were fun, and not feeling obliged to have the whole family...and leaving to the Throne Room music from Star Wars...

Of all the emotions, I think PANIC is underrated.

Your sense of unpreparedness is probably due to not having thought about the Zombie Apocalypse. Is your wedding proof against swarms of the living dead? No? Sounds like you have some work to do.
