I’m anxious, and I did get emotional. I didn’t take anything though because it was my wedding day 🙂 I wanted my emotionals to be all natural

I haven’t, but I was just in a wedding where the bride did so. Her wedding was pretty big and fancy and took place at the top of stairs (kinda nerve racking!). It really helped calm her before the ceremony. She still cried during her vows, so it didn’t take away from the emotional aspect of the wedding. My wedding is going to be much smaller, so I doubt I will need to!

@mu_t:  I’m the same way. I come from a long line of criers. I’m not even engaged yet and as I plan my wedding in my head, I make myself cry sometimes thinking about the walk down the aisle or dancing with my dad and stepdad. When I get married, I will be ugly-crying ALL. DAY. So I think it would not be a bad idea for me to take a little something to calm me down. My SO has an actual anxiety disorder so HE’LL be on his regular meds I’m sure. I don’t see anything wrong with discussing it with your doctor. They can prescribe a super low dose of something and you can test it  out sometime before the wedding so you know how it’ll effect you. (i.e. if you won’t be yourself or too zombie-fied you might not want to take them on the day)

Or do like megz06 did and just let the tears fly! (just designate a BM or friend to be your makeup checker / toucher-upper Wink

Well, I kind of take it every day, lol. But I’m sure I’ll be avoiding coffee like the plague, no need for extra jitters

@mu_t:  I might take something! I’m already super hormonal and emotional, so I’d like to tone it down if I can to enjoy the day. I’m a control freak so the littlest thing going wrong will stress me out.

I have Xanax for my occasional panic attacks lol… I will be so nervous and freak out if everyone is staring at me. (you can’t really avoid that being the bride ha!) so I typically take 1/2 a Xanax to calm myself before parties or concerts– I may do a whole on the day of the wedding to avoid shaking like a leaf & feeling faint!
