You can control a lot of things about your wedding day — the color of your flowers, the dress you decide to wear and, of course, the person you're going to marry.
But one thing that's completely out of your hands is the crazy thoughts you'll think when you start walking down the aisle.
Usually, that's the moment you're probably hoping you don't trip and fall or suddenly get a raging case of cold feet and become a runaway bride.
