At this point, if you are pregnant a home pregnancy test should be accurate. Based on your last period, it has been 6 1/2 weeks since your period. Generally by 5 weeks, home pregnancy tests are around 99% accurate.
Several factors can result in a false negative, including very dilute urine, testing too early (i.e. before 4-5 weeks), and incorrectly performing the test.
I would recommend you repeat the pregnancy test now using the first morning void. If this is negative it is likely to be a true result.
There are several things that can alter a normal period including stress (good stress as well as bad stress) and illnesses.
If your pregnancy test is negative and you do not have your period by 8 weeks I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation.
Best wishes and congratulations on your recent marraige.
