When I was younger I would have similar feelings at birthday parties, graduations, etc. I hated the attention being on me. My mom gave me the advice to just act “graceful” Whenever I was feeling embaressed or unsure of what to do and say I should just give a sweet smile and think to myself “just breathe” I have used this approach many times and it always seems to help. I know this isn’t earth shattering advice, but its what I do.

Hi date twin!

I am feeling the same way. The thing I loathe the most about weddings is all the bride-centered attention. This is mostly why i insisted on no showers and a small intimate bachelorette (less sashes and penis gear). Its just SO NOT ME to have people gushing over me… I hate it even for my birthday! I’m terrified I’m gonna walk weird or too hard or fall.. or worse.. that my wedding will be dull and i wont be able to entertain everyone properly. OY VEY

@MrsPinkPeony: I think that was great advice actually! I will use it myself ๐Ÿ™‚
