I didn’t take anything for nerves. I don’t remember most of the walking down & ceremony – it was just a blur.

Teresa1 :  I actually just got rescue remedy (haven’t tried it yet) because my counselor suggested it for my anxiety. I only plan on taking the recommended 4 drops, maybe 8 total shortly before walking down the isle if I think I need it. I’m the kind of person that “blacks out” during really big things. I actually don’t remember everything my fiancé said when he proposed to me, I just remember bits and pieces because I kept thinking “Holy cow, this is happening!” so I expect to have that similar thing happen on my wedding day.

Rescue Remedy is the best. My pets love it, I love it, I’m their unpaid spokeswoman. 

One of the great things about it is that since it’s all natural, there aren’t a lot of side effects for going over the recommended dose. 

Most likely you had a panic blackout of some kind. I don’t know if that’s the official term, but it always happens to me after a job interview or big presentation. I have no memory of the actual event, but I remember the before and after perfectly.

Do you have videos or pictures of you walking down the aisle? That might help you remember.

I don’t remember walking down the aisle. I had no rescue remedy or alcohol. It’s just nerves and not something that you need to worry about.

Nah it wasn’t the RR Bee. It was the stress.

Memories need to be encoded, stored and retrieved. In moments of great stress the chain sometimes breaks down and those memories may have been encoded and stored, but you’re having problems retrieving them. Or they might not have been encoded properly or…the list goes on. Stress does that to the brain though so no, it wasn’t the RR.

Teresa1 :  I don’t have anxiety issues and I still don’t really remember most of the ceremony.  While I’d suggest lightening up next time you feel you need it – no one should be that dependent on anything – I also don’t think it’s the reason you don’t really remember what happened.  Wedding days tend to be a blur for almost everyone.

Rescue Remedy–haven’t heard of it before but it sounds really interesting. I actually popped on Amazon to see what it’s all about–very cool. Thinking about ordering. 🙂

Anyways, after reading the ingredients thoroughly, I can say no—highly doubt your not remembering has anything to do with the RR. I’ve noticed when I’m in high stress situations that my brain only tends to focus on 1 thing at a time. For you, you just had to get down the aisle, one foot in front of the other. You likely didn’t have the capacity to recall every last detail if your mind was in survival mode due to stress. It happened to me on my wedding day, too. I don’t remember much about the walk OR the vows (thank God we wrote them down and have video). I don’t remember much period. It was a total blur!
