  • Wedding: October 2010

As of tomorrow, we have 21 days. I would like to just be married already. I would like, right now, to call off the whole thing and just go get married! I ideally wanted a (very) small wedding – like 25 people. And now it’s like 80 and BLEH! 


Sooo, basically I’m NO help!

I’ll probably have better advice for you post-wedding, but all I can tell you is that through the planning there will be different aspects that will cause you more stress than others.  The best thing I can tell you is to write a list of things you want to stay focused on and keep reverting to that list as a sanity tool.

As for all eyes on you… I used to do some public speaking and would feel SO sick to my stomach before getting in front of the crowd.  But, the reality is – when you are up in front of a crowd, there are so many people (yes, all watching you) but you can’t focus on any of them…. so, I don’t think it will be as bad as you think.  Plus, remember that these are all people who are there with a single focus – to support YOU.

Hopefully they will go away for you. YOu are still a ways away so try not to get yourself worked up right now. I am usually a very anxious person and sometimes take anti-anxiety medication. I brought some with me to my wedding but didnt even think about taking one because of how calm I was. I only had 2 glasses of champagne all day before the wedding and it was more a celebratory thing than a nerves thing. I was just excited to be getting married. You will feel so much love and support from all directions that [hopefully] the nerves wont be that bad! The ONLY time all day I felt a little nervous was right as I started walking down the aisle and it was all eyes on me. I just smiled (I couldnt help it) and looked straight ahead at my husband. I wanted to focus on him and remember his face. I could still see people looking at me but all I remember in that moment is seeing his smile. The nerves melted away instantly! I wasnt nervous at all throughout the whole ceremony because I just tried to be present in the moment and enjoy the whole thing.
