^This.

 

I was 11 days over with both of mine. It wasn't whether my body was healed with the first one, but there were some issues with feeding, and sleep, and I was a complete zombie person for about three months after my first. Perfect pregnancy, I was in perfect health. I had no reason to think there would be any particular issues. You just don't know how things will go.

 

Do you have any family or friends nearby OP? Could you 'book' a mother or mother-in-law, or friend for the day or couple of days before the wedding to help with the baby while you do cake? You might be able to express so someone else can do some feeds, or they can rock the baby and change nappies etc. If you let someone know early, they might be able to help you out.

You might be fine immediately afterward. I only missed one day of work when one of mine was born. The only deliveries where I actually felt bad were the ones that I had an episiotomy, which they don't do as much nowadays. Otherwise, I was absolutely fine the day after (just tired).
