I’m an anxious person to begin with, and I do not like being the center of attention! I think that after the ceremony I will be perfectly fine, I’m just so nervous about everything running smoothly, and not completely balling my eyes out, haha. My FI is in the military, and everytime I go pick him up at the airport I get so nervous, until I first see him then it all goes away. What did you ladies do to calm yourself down (besides alcohol)?

Maybe this seems silly but write your FI a note like “I can’t wait to kiss you”, have a bridesmaid give it to him, and have him write you a love note and maybe that will help?

My special day has not arrived yet however my FSIL took an anxiety pill. I was worried at first about how she would act throughout the day but she was fine and calm all day and remembered everything!

I’ll be honest, this is why I chose to do a first look before the ceremony! I think it’ll calm me down to see him and have a few moments with him. Even if you don’t have that set up, and don’t want to see him, can you arrange to speak for a few moments after getting ready (through a door, or with his back turned) to maybe calm your nerves?

A nice fatty works for me!

Okay, here I come, the crazy banana lady. 🙂 I ate 2 bananas on our wedding day, and I was so calm you’d never believe it. Bananas serve as a natural beta blocker, and we use it in the performing world to keep calm, so I figured the same would work for our wedding day! DH was a mess all day, and I was totally okay!
