Let's face it: Planning a wedding is stressful, time-consuming, and often able to bring out our worst insecurities. Even though it's all for a happy day and there are moments of bliss embedded in the tediousness, it's definitely not all roses. From late-night panics about no-show guests to all-out paranoia about a wardrobe malfunction, there are a million ways to imagine something going wrong. It can be hard to see the forest from the trees, especially when your florist calls to tell you that peonies are out of season.

But if you have one of these moments, you're not alone! Even your worst fear is shared by brides everywhere. As proof, we asked our engaged Facebook followers to share their biggest wedding-day concerns to prove that all brides are in this together (and that it'll all turn out fine). Here, the most popular and common responses:

"That despite getting married in drought-ridden California, it will pour on our wedding day. We're getting married outside with no rain plan (except umbrellas)." — Wendy Gilbert

"Crying uncontrollably during the ceremony." — Rebecca Tokuno
