Oh man, I’m terrified to walk down the aisle. I don’t particularly want everyone staring at me (~100 people, plus any random people in the park that day), and where I’m walking is slanted downward. I’m going to have to take a Xanax and a big glass of wine before the ceremony, haha. Same goes for our first dance and such. Ick.

@GoldenBeauty2202012:  Would he consider a smaller ceremony earlier in the day with a larger reception later?  That might be less pressure for you.

If that’s not an option, I’d suggest stacking the rows in your favor.  Choose a few people from your family and from his and ask them to sit on the aisle.  That way when you go up, yes everyone will be watching you, but you’ll have people closest to you that make you feel supported.  Just think of each of them as you make your way to your groom as your ally and that might help.

I get really nervous about this too. I was thinking about this today, actually. I am going to try to keep my eyes focused on my fiance as I walk down the aisle and try not to think about the 100 people staring at me lol.
