I already purchased Emotionally Engaged and The Concious Bride.
But I wanted to see if there were any other good ones?
For some reason out of the blue Im suddenly nervous about getting married. It has nothing to do with my FI- I love him and I want to be with him forever. But the thought of marriage and it being so permenant and set all of a sudden freaks me out and gives me anxiety. But Ive always wanted this! Why am I scared of the change? the unknown? the together forever stuff? Ive never felt this way until I started suffering from panic attacks for no reason. But now I can pinpoint certain reasons.
Anyways- I like reading those books, it makes me realize Im not the only Bride TO be thats scared. Any other book suggestions???

I started having panic attacks too but it subsided when I look at Fiance and when I talk to him and stuff. He’s pretty understanding about a lot of things and he was married once before. I can’t think of any books but can just let you know that it can subside.
You think talking to him about being anxious will help? It always helps me, he just kinda holds me and says something like I don’t know but I know I can be there for you. I had a huge panic attack the night before we drove across the country and I got my grandmother’s wedding set. I kinda just hit me like a ton of bricks that I was not only moving 2000 miles away from home driving the whole way in my own car and following him but it was very likely that we would be getting married and I had just basically picked out the ring for him.
I mean I love him but that was a whole lot of change bam in one night. He proposed about a year and two months from that night so at least he gave me and himself some time to process it all.

Sorry to here you are stressed. There are some good techniques outlined in The Healthy Bride Guide: Be Fit and Fabulous From This Day Forward : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/157061461X/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=sustafuturgro-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=157061461X

I don’t have any suggestions, but I definitely do not recommend The Conscious Bride. My friend bought it for me when I got engaged, and I rolled my eyes most of the way through it. The rest of the time I made fun of it with my now-husband. Its approach is completely unscientific, and I felt like the author was making up emotions just for the sake of publishing a book.
