Positive feeling better thoughts coming your way!  Drinking lots of fluids should help also.  It is really important to stay hydrated.

I was sick 2 weeks ago and I ate vitamin C like it was my job. I went to target and got the chewable ones and ate 3 a day (morning, noon and night), 2 days later I was significantly better! Maybe you can go to a Dr to get on any antibotic which wont help for a few days but maybe for your honeymoon? But I think the general thought is antibotics do not work for colds… Feel better soon!

Here is what I do when I get head colds:

  • lots of water, tea and lozenges to soothe your throat
  • get to bed early so you get plenty of rest
  • nose spray so you can breathe through your nose – this helps SO much in feeling better, seriously get some nose spray!
  • hot hot showers (I prefer showers to baths)
  • ibuprofen for my headaches and sinus pain

Hope that helps and feel better soon!  Even if you are a little sick on your wedding day, I doubt you will even notice!  But again I will say – get nose spray!  It totally helps clear up the plugged head feeling!

My sister/MOH woke me up at 5AM the morning of my wedding, sobbing because she felt so miserable (the poor thing actually said “I have worked TOO hard on this wedding to be sick and not enjoy it!) We dosed the heck out of her with tylenol cold and flu (the one that has the “day” pills and the “night” pills), EmergenC and tons and tons of water and OJ. She actually did ok all day/night Saturday, but by Sunday night, she crashed. I am sure that other ‘bees have better recommendations of what to do NOW, but this work the day of the wedding if you find yourself feeling lousy on Sunday. Feel better soon!

Oh no!!!! That really really sucks! Okay, here’s the recipe from my naturopath that always helps me ward off colds. She recommends drinking at least two cups a day.

  • Take a 1-2″ piece of ginger and cut or grate it up.
  • Add ginger to 2 cups water & boil for 20 minutes minimum (the longer you boil it, the stronger it is.
  • Scoop out the ginger, add juice from half a lemon.
  • Drink with honey to taste.

Personally, I just chop up the ginger because it’s easier to scoop out. I think if you put it in cheesecloth it would work really well, and I’ve found you can use the ginger pieces more than once. I usually double this and just leave it on the stove, reheating as I need it (it takes me a day or day and a half to go through it). It sort of tastes like NeoCitran, it’s REALLY yummy.

I hope you feel better soon hon!!!

So sorry you are sick so close to the wedding. It sounds like you are doing all the right things. Keep using the neti pot ( I use one daily!), lots of Vit. C, tea and SLEEP! I think sleep could be the most important!!  Hang in there. 🙂

Call you Doctor ASAP and let them know your wedding is this weekend.  They might recommend a great quick fix!. 

Try the following:
Hot water with lemon and honey (honey for the throat, lemon to disinfect)
Netti Pot
Hot water and garlic
Eat lots of Oranges
Vitamin D

Oh, no!  Sleep, lots of sleep.  Water and tea.  Hot showers to steam out your sinuses.  Make sure you’re eating, too.  Hopefully it will be mostly cleared up by the weekend.

Oh no! Definitely sleep, and hydrate a ton like the other bees said. Maybe some chicken soup and some Tylenol for the head ache?  Feel better soon!
