I’m a total type A control freak (who has had to use plenty of xanax in her day) and I love love loved every minute of my wedding weekend.  I promise you once all your most loved people are there surrounding you… you won’t worry about the little details any more!  I know it’s easier said than done but just try to relax and focus on the fact that you’re marrying the man of your dreams!

I feel the SAME way! I wish I could just enjoy it. And not sleeping well is making it even worse, because now I’m nervous that I’ll look tired. Vicious cycle! 🙂

Just think since you are type A you know that every detail has been taken care of and it will all be amazing! I was just like you I was even on anxiety meds to come to work and on my wedding day I was so relaxed and extremely happy and me and my husband had an amazing day and everything went perfect, not a single glitch. I know it’s hard to relax right now but make sure you at least take the day before your wedding to unwind and get pampered.

@beachbrideamy: I was SOO stressed the 3 days before my wedding because I had so much to do…but after I dropped off the stuff at the venue the morning of, I was able to relax.

I think that at a certain point you realize that there are no more projects, nothing you can do about extra guests or the weather, and no one left to call or coordinate – then you can enjoy your wedding.

anxiety is always my first emotion, I am just wired that way.

I would try to take the xanax when you need it, and also try some sleepytime tea at night just to help you wind down. Try to read or take long showers or a bath, or do something to keep you busy but relaxed.

Make sure you get your beauty rest the weeks and days before the big day.

One thing that helps me is to think about other things I’ve you worried and or obsessed about in life, and for me most if not all of the things I was worried about never happen … so I worry for nothing!!

Anxiety is really pointless but as a sufferer I understand.

Sounds simple enough but, do your best to relax and be kind to yourself when you are having high anxiety days.

all the best !
