I definitely plan on having a few coctails to calm my nerves.  I’m seriously clumsy and I have to walk down a looooong grassy walkway to get to my FI and I’m terrified of tripping.  And, there’s that old saying about not locking your knees when you’re standing or you’ll pass out.  I always lock my knees!

It’s okay to be buzzed during your wedding if that helps you while talking to people, etc. Just don’t get buzzed before walking down the aisle! I love love love drinking so am going to make a special effort not to drink too much on my wedding day, I want to remember every moment. But my older sister is very shy and definitely needed some champagne before talking to guests at cocktail hour.

I definitely thought I was going to throw up, up until I walked down the aisle. I was actually standing in the bathroom, leaning over the toilet when the music queued up. As soon as i took a deep breathe and started walking down the aisle, everything else went away. I’m sure you’ll be fine…. you’ll be focused on him and that’s all that you’ll see.

I had problems with my speech too–the microphone totally weirded me out. It was SO loud.

A friend of mine nixed the microphone completely. Only she, her husband, and the priest heard their vows. They were really private. Would you consider that option? I have a friend who was like “but i want the whole world to hear!” whereas i was just not OK with the microphone. I had no choice but to plow through, but there was some awkward laughter during my 30 seconds of silence in which i opened my mouth and no sound came out!

I haven’t reached the point where I’m that nervous but I can only imagine how I’ll feel 2 months away from the big day!  My suggestion is to practice the elements that make you most nervous.  Like I’ve been walking up and down stairs in my shoes because I’m afraid of doing a nose dive when I’m walking down the aisle (who adds a stairway to an aisle??).  Aaaaand, I am all for some bubbly the day of the wedding but make sure you don’t have too much!  My friend made the mistake of drinking a lotta champagne and eating a heavy meal and she was soooo sick!  The nerves and all that junk in your belly may make it impossible for your tummy to bear!  I’m sure you’ll be fine though, hopefully you’ll get this surge of calmness on that day because you’ll know that everything is done and you can just enjoy the fruits of your labor!  At least that’s what I’m bankin’ on!  Lol ๐Ÿ™‚

For my wedding, I didn’t have to say anything. Me and DH talked about it before the wedding and we decided not to have a thank you speech.  We didn’t want to do it.  So the only thing that was nerve racking (sp?) for me was walking down the aisle and getting introduced  and the dances.  You don’t need to address your guests if you don’t want to… all I did was try to go to everyone’s table to greet them individually… which i feel bad because I didn’t have enough time to greet everyone.

i’m refusing to talk. other than the “i do’s!” we’re supposed to say some hebrew before we exchange rings, but i said no, and luckily traditionally only the groom says that, so we’ll go traditional. i can’t drink to calm my nerves (gives me migraines), so i’m going with the perscription drug route. and we have a very small guest list for the ceremony. but i’m still terified!

Totally off topic here but I stopped reading your post when I saw the word “retarded.”  I second Laylabelle’s request to not use that word.  I don’t understand when it became acceptable slang.

I’m not having a wedding party, but like you, I get nervous. In light of that, I’ve decided to make my friend, low dosage of Ativan, my MOH.
