I can definitely use some help and tips on this one. I’m the type of person who gets really sick whenever I’m stressed and tired and I’m really afraid that I will be sick on my wedding day!
For those who are wedding planning, have any of you fallen ill yet during the process? If so, what are you doing to prevent it from happening on your wedding day?
For those who are married, did you get sick the week of or on the day of your wedding? If so, what did you do?

I am the same way. When I get run down, stressed and not enough sleep, I will get sick. What I am planning to do is make sure I take my multivitamins, drink at least one emergen-c a day, drink lots of water, carry protein bars with me so I don’t forget to eat or eat something bad and try to go to be on time. Good luck and can’t wait for other tips.

I’m the exact same way! Unfortunately, I have no advice for you, but I’m anxious to hear what everyone else has to say…

I usually get sick because of stress, but for some reason the week of the wedding I was fine. I will say that massage certainly helps me with work stress, so that’s something you can try. Keep hydrated and don’t forget to eat.
For me it’s all in my head. If I don’t think I’m organized enough, I’ll get stressed and get myself sick, but if I’m confident that I’ve thought of dang near everything and I let things go I have no control over or want to stop worrying about, I feel armed to handle the stress.

I’ve been taking a stronger vitamin regimin than usual, eating more fruit (lots of blueberries), and drinking lots of water. I get major migraines, so I am going to have my Maxalt on hand — i’m giving some to my moh, my fh, my fmil, my mom, and my coordinator — that way it is there for me wherever I am. Also, I get sick from not eating, so we made it a point to have a full meal before the ceremony.

I’ve noticed that when I started exercising regularly (3 years ago), I haven’t been sick very much at all (though it does suck to see the office cold go around and then get hit with it LAST). The first few weeks were hard because I felt so tired, but then my body got used to it and I definitely have more energy now than I used to! I also agree with Luxe and drink lots of water! I can’t tell you how many terrible headaches and stomach cramps I’ve had from not drinking enough of the stuff.

take it from someone who was sick the week and a half before her wedding, on her wedding day, then on her two week honeymoon it continued, right through the week I got back – if you feel any sort of ailment coming on, STOP! take care of yourself, get rest, etc. and try to forget about all the stressful things going on. I got through the wedding day, my hair stylist had some sort of whooping cough meds that kept me from coughing through the ceremony. but from the first day of our honeymoon in Costa Rica, it got bad….After a few days of pain and fever, I finally went to a clinic and stocked up on meds, which in that country only covered up the problem. My tiny cold turned into a sinus & seriously bad ear infection and bronchitis. NOT FUN. Especially when you can’t really swim with an ear infection, also not fun in 90 degree weather. SO – the most important thing would be your health! Make you family/friends/FI finish the wedding plans if you are getting sick…..but the best thing to do is avoid stressing out.

I would work out regularly to make sure you have an outlet for relieving stress, but it’s also beneficial because when your blood is circulating your body will detox to help you fight illnesses. Also like another commenter mentioned, a massage is also good, try to get one that will detox you. Ask your masseuse (sp?) who knows how to do a good detox massage, if the massage is deep tissue, dont’ do it or else you’ll end up with bruises. Also stay away from caffeine and sugary things, if you can, drink carrot juice. White, brown, any substitute sugar is bad for you, the healthiest alternative is agave nectar which is natural and isn’t processed like white/brown sugar. Hope that helps!
