Strumming for the verses/prechorus/bridge is one down stroke for each chord.
For the chorus I do DDUUDU. :)

D    D             A   A
I am not the kinda girl
              Em             Em
Who should be rudely barging in
     G           G
On a white veil occasion
    D       D             A  A
But you are not the kinda boy
              Em           Em    G
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

D       D               A   A
I sneak in and see your friends
        Em             Em
And her snotty little family
     G           G
All dressed in pastel
     D       D             A  A
And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
          Em           Em    
Somewhere back inside a room
           G                 G
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry

Em Em G G D               D                    A  A        
This  is  surely not what you thought it would be
Em Em  G    G           A
I      lose myself in a daydream
Where I stand and say

D
Don't say yes
A
Run away now
Em
I'll meet you when you're out
       G
Of the church at the back door
D
Don't wait
   A
Or say a single vow
    Em
You need to hear me out
         G
And they said speak now


D D              A      A
Fun gestures are exchanged
        Em             Em
And the organ starts to play
            G             G
A song that sounds like a death march
    D    D             A  A
And I am hiding in the curtains
              Em        Em    
It seems that I was uninvited
        G               G
By your lovely bride to be

Em Em G              G            D       D    A A
She   looks down the aisle like a pageant queen
Em Em G G      A                   A
And I know you wish it was me, you wish it was me (don't you?)

D
Don't say yes
A
Run away now
Em
I'll meet you when you're out
       G
Of the church at the back door
D
Don't wait
   A
Or say a single vow
    Em
You need to hear me out
         G
And they said speak now

D
Don't say yes
A
Run away now
Em
I'll meet you when you're out
       G
Of the church at the back door
D
Don't wait
   A
Or say a single vow
     Em
Your time is running out
         G
And they said speak now

D A Em G
Ooh....
D A Em G

Em         Em 
I hear the preacher say
G          G          D    D    A     A
"Speak now or forever hold your peace"
Em
Against the silence
Em
There's my last chance
G               G
I stand up with shaking hands
    A    A  A
All eyes on me

Em        Em         G               G
Horrified looks from everyone in the room
    A        A          A
But I am only looking at you

D    D             A   A
I am not the kinda girl
              Em             Em
Who should be rudely barging in
     G           G
On a white veil occasion
    D       D             A  A
But you are not the kinda boy
              Em           Em    G
Who should be marrying the wrong girl

   D
So don't say yes
A
Run away now
Em
I'll meet you when you're out
       G
Of the church at the back door
D
Don't wait
   A
Or say a single vow
    Em
You need to hear me out
         G
And they said speak now

D
And you say
      A
Let's run away now
Em
I'll meet you when I'm out
      G
Of my tux at the back door
D
Baby
   A
I didn't say my vows
   Em
So glad you were around
          G              D
When they said speak now
