Yeah. FH and I are both like that. We just decided to have a smaller wedding ceremony with roughly 60 to 70 guests. That way, there’s not quite as many eyes on us. I haven’t let it really worry me or stress me out though. I’m sure that on the day of I’m not going to care at all who is looking at me.

Hi, are you me?  I’m exactly the same way.  I’m a teacher, so I’m fine at work in front of classrooms full of kids, but parties and things focused on me make me really uncomfortable.  If you’re only a week away from the wedding, unfortunately I don’t have any advice, but you’re definitely not alone in your feelings.

Darling Husband and I HATE being the center of attention…that’s why we just went to the courthouse and had a party later =) It was perfect for us!

@Desertdweller:  If it’s any consolation, I would just remember that weddings are inherently communal events — they really aren’t just about the bride and groom. They’re about celebrating the whole community that raised you and cared for you and still supports you today. 

And as long as your ceremony is relatively short and sweet, all eyes won’t actually be on you for very long. So I would just try to take a sip of champagne before walking down the aisle and enjoy everyone who is there to support you.
