I think you actually answered your own question—-it may be the unknown. Getting married is letting go of familiarity and your own security. You’re are merging your life with someone else’s and trusting them to be honest, loyal, forgiving, etc. It can be alot to take in if you overthink it. It is natural to be nervous–sometimes I think, “oh my God what have I gotten myself into.” However, when we have talks where he is encouraging/supporting me I have that “aha, this is why” moment. No I don’t have any book suggestions, but just know it is normal and try not to overthink it. Love is the greatest gift and biggest risk we will all take, but the payoff (hopefully) will be so much more!

If reading books on the subject helps, then by all means do it, but I think you just need to take a step back from wedding planning.

I know that when I overthink something I freak myself out. I try to focus on something else and then the original problem doesn’t seem so huge anymore. It helps me put it into perspective.

I really think this is just a case of overthinking things. Marriage won’t change that much if you’re already in a solid, committed relationship. Imagine your life without your man in it and then you might be feeling less anxious about getting hitched.
