I’m getting married THIS WEEKEND, y’all! I should be over the moon but I feel so sick to my stomach. I don’t know if it’s nerves or I’m actually sick with something (was on antibiotics until a few days ago so that might have upset my system) but I’m barely eating and feel like I’m going to barf all the time.
I’m not even actively stressed over any aspect of wedding planning – I’ve been pretty chill through the whole thing. So please don’t tell me to relax, because I don’t feel…unrelaxed, if that makes sense.
Please – any practical advice? Help!

I was dreading my wedding day, having to be the center of attention and oohed and aahed over. When I woke up the morning of, I felt so sick I thought I was going to barf. Then I drank some tea and got in the shower, and miraculously, when I got out, I suddenly didn’t feel sick anymore. I felt kind of happy and excited.
If it is nerves/anticipation that is making you feel sick, and not antibiotics, hopefully once the rock really gets rolling down the mountain all of the energy your body is currently spending on putting your stomach in knots will just get transferred into getting through and enjoying the day, like it did for me. So try not to worry.
Also, don’t get so caught up in doing things the right way or the traditional way that you let it interfere with how you and your body and mind feel most happy and comfortable. For example, rather than staying up late the night before and partying with all our friends and family, my fiancé and I knew we’d be much happier getting a good nights sleep, so we left the party early. Some brides really want to sleep with all their bridesmaids piled in one hotel room like sardines in a can, but I knew that was pretty much the best way I could make myself not get any sleep at all and wake up feeling like a tiger with a toothache, so I had a whole room to myself. Last, I know you’re not supposed to see your fiancé the night before the wedding, but I called him into my room to snuggle for a bit around midnight and just enjoy some last private unmarried moments together. That really calmed and relaxed both of us before we went back to separate rooms to sleep.
good luck and have fun!

ohnatto: Thank you – that really does help. Maybe I just needed to talk about it. He’s so chill about it all. The thought of being the center of attention all day makes me want to hurl.
