Talk to your doctor, get on some meds. Panic attacks are not what you want 6 days before your wedding!!

Exercising always helps me to calm down and reduce my worry when I’m anxious, but I know this is just one small suggestion.

It kind of sounds like one to me too. Fiance and I both get em and that’s how they make us feel.

I’m no doctor but I know lots of people who get like this before there wedding. I think it’s just normal nerves. If you have so much to do then try making lists so you can cross things off to feel better as you accomplish things and worry less about forgetting things. Also, remember that if something doesn’t happen, only you will know.

Some ideas – Yoga, guided meditation cd’s, massage. I would be worried about trying out pills this soon too.

I’m going to agree with the yoga and massage, and especially exercise.

Exercise!! It will help. I too would be worried about pills, but I definitely think you should see a doctor post-wedding to calm your anxiety.

Yoga, chamomile tea, deep breathing, massage, a walk outdoors (try to get some outdoor time every day), making brownies, lavender anything – soap, candles, lotion, essential oils, etc, getting plenty of sleep (no late nights on wedding bee!), laugh – watch your favorite comedian on you tube.

Go through worst-case scenarios and ask yourself what are you really afraid of, and will it be that bad if it happens, and is it likely to even happen. (Like: Baker forgets the cake. Bad? Yes. Likely? No. Will you get a refund? Definitely. Can you then spend that money on new shoes post wedding? Of course. Will it be a funny story to tell people? Absolutely.)

Peppermint and ginger for the stomach. Candied ginger will help with the nausea, peppermint tea might too. Force yourself to eat crackers or toast. 

Farm out responsibilities. Cut somethings that just don’t need to be done. (We never got around to making a perfect must-play list, for instance). 

Try on your wedding dress and spin around like a pretty princess. 

Call a friend who got married recently and won’t be bored by wedding details and will understand what you are going through.

Hug your fiance.

Make a list of everything you love about him.

Plan for AFTER the wedding. It’ll help you remember life goes on. I mean, not honeymoon or buying a house or anything like that. But like “hey, on Tuesday, let’s go to that new burrito place.”

Look through your parent’s wedding album. Ask your grandparent’s stories about their weddings.

Stop reading wedding blogs. 

If you haven’t done yoga before, this is a really easy sequence and seriously helps me fall asleep. http://www.eternity-yoga.com/yoga-moon-salutation.html
