How are all of you brides feeling nerve-wise about the big day? I’m getting married in 3 months and the nerves have absolutely just hit me, realizing we are so close! I am so nervous about the ceremony, but feel so relaxed and excited about the rest of the day. I’m nervous about fainting, getting sick to my stomach, people not showing up, someone falling, music not being right, etc etc … I guess the common things, just things going wrong. How are you ladies dealing with these nerves?

I am nervous. I’ll be honest with you, I am testing out Xanax. I don’t take any meds regularly, but I am super high strung (which typically is not a problem). But I am terrified for the wedding day…I am too Type A to not be slightly medicated. Also, I don’t drink….so no easing the nerves that way.
I don’t want to seem drugged though! I may just take a half. I don’t know, maybe it’ll be more of a mental thing than a chemical thing.

I wasn’t nervous at all until the DAY OF. I woke up early that day, sick as a dog! I could hardly eat all day. I prepared myself as best as possible, though and drank plenty of water, took pepcid and immodium (covering all my bases), had a couple of cocktails with the girls, and most importantly, shared my nervousness with my fiance. He was great at bringing me back to earth. Oh, and we got a massage, too. I didn’t feel wonderful going in, so i was nervous, but I left feeling good. Since your nerves are months out, I’d suggest the same kind of moves – deep breaths, focusing on your comfort and also reality. It’s an important day, but it’s one day. Take a long bath, get a pedi, do whatever you need to to just think about nothing for an hour, and I’m guessing that your nerves will subside a bit.

I’m almost hitting the 4 mth mark and I’m getting more and more nervous, anxiety is kicking in big time!
I’m the most nervous about the ceremony part as well. I’m using an officiant and since he’s so flexible, I’m having trouble figuring out how many readings, who should be the readers, how the program should be laid out!
My friends that’s already married told me that no one knows when something is going right so I think all us should be fine the day of — I’m trying to believe that this is true.
