I am officially one week away from the big “I Do’s”. We are only doing a private civil ceremony with just the Commissioner and our two witnesses. Even though it will be small and intimate the past week I have been so unbelivably stressed/anxious. I haven’t had an appetite in over a week but have been managing to eat as much as I can! I have definitely been having stress/anxiety symptoms the past week.
I am also having cold feet, and almost want to back out of the whole thing!! I won’t, I love my fiance and want to be his wife, but I almost wish it was over already.
How did all of you feel before your ceremony – big or small? I need some words of encouragement! 🙂

Hey Bee!! I feel the same way! I am having a meium size wedding and I am very anxious and starting to get cold feet. Like you, I will not back out because I love him. Its just so much and havent slept in days. I am sure my makeup artist will have to work extra hard to hide these dark circles…lol
I want to say relax and everything will be fine. I am speaking to you and myself. Congrats!! I am a week after you. 🙂

I know that me wanting to not go through with it is just the nerves talking! I absoutely want to marry him, but these nerves are really taking it’s toll!
I also have been having a hard time sleeping, my skin is not at it’s best. Breaking out which is very unusual for me. The lack of appetite has been the worst and when I do eat, I am not eating the healthiest because the only thing that really sounds appealing is sweet! (hense the not so great skin) Oh man.
To top it off, this morning I woke up with a stye. I am definitely needing to take a big breath and relax. I know it’s going to be an amazing day and I will be so happy once we are in the moment! I’m thinking a good pampering of myself is in order. A nice hot bubble bath and some face masks and creams to help sooth everything will be in order!
Congrats!! So excited for you! Hoping you find some peace witht he stress/nerves!

I just got married a little over a week ago and was a nervous wreck the week before my wedding. Couldn’t eat and couldn’t sleep without medication. I felt like i had an actual anxiety disorder…I’ve never felt like that for such an extended period of time in my life! My heart was racing and I just felt wired and on edge every minute. If someone so much as looked at me wrong I was liable to burst into tears…it was insane. I didn’t have cold feet about marrying my husband, but I did have moments of yearning to cancel the whole thing and just elope.
I will say though, it was all 1000000% worth it. Our ceremony was perfect (we designed it ourselves and had DH’s brother marry us), and the wedding was better than I could have dreamed. No regrets!

I was really anxious the week before my wedding. I think it is really natural! We had only the officiant and a couple of witnesses, too. I think I was worried something would go wrong. I was also nervous about marrying because it’s such a big step!! I was actually relieved when the ceremony was over. I was able to relax then, and enjoy the honeymoon.

Thanks all! Definitely a breath of fresh air to know I am not the only one freaking out. I’m very excited for our big day, but it’s definitely making me super anxious as well!
Tried to have a nice relaxing evening and I’m hoping I will be able to get a good nights rest. It’s definitely needed! I haven’t been an insomniac these past 4 or 5 nights.
