Is your special day right around the corner? Can you see yourself walking down the aisle into the arms of your beloved? However, marriage doubts and cold feet can get the best out of it. So how to shake off those wedding jitters?




Why Do Engaged People Get Jitters?

So, you met the love of your life through traditional meetups or on free dating sites. A wedding is a gigantic milestone in a couple’s life. Two people who love each other very much want to proclaim their love for one another. The best way to do that would be to get hitched and invite all your loved ones to come and witness the ceremony! And the months leading up to the event can be very stressful for both the bride and the groom. Nervous about wedding stuff? After the excitement of getting engaged mellows down, jitters are all too common as the special day draws close. Do you feel them as well? Worry not – here are a few things you can do to get rid of those wedding day nerves!


Understand Your Emotions

Now that the most special day of your life is drawing close, you must be busy with all preparations. It is a hectic time, from choosing bridesmaids and the right dress to overseeing the nitty-gritty like catering and seating. You have to give it your all to ensure that everyone has a good time on your special occasion. That includes you, too! If the thought of all these things is enough to make you start hyperventilating, you are not at fault. Wedding anxiety is a genuine disability that can strike down even the most sure-headed folks. So, how do we overcome this?

It is crucial to pause for a moment and take it all in. Instead of bottling everything up, reach inside and try to understand why you’re feeling what you are feeling. Talk to your loved ones, friends, and your partner. Voice your worries to those you trust. It will help you feel better!


Form Healthy Habits

When the doubting voices get too loud in your head, it is easy to give up. However, the first step is to ignore these thoughts – half the battle won! The next step is to form at least one healthy habit. Planning the occasion is an extremely hectic task. You must take some time out for yourself and do something you love. It can be anything – as long as the activity brings you some inner peace. You can shoot off to a gym to work off those pesky wedding nerves. You can journal your feelings, paint, cook or clean something, etc. It should be something you know that will calm your pre-wedding jitters.

Make sure that you allow yourself breaks when you feel too overwhelmed. It does not matter what event detail requires your attention at the moment. Go ahead if you need some space to switch off any wedding nervousness creeping in. You will feel all the better about it.


Have a Close and Trustworthy Confidant

Wedding excitement can easily turn from something positive to an eldritch horror from your nightmares. Stress levels go off the charts and frazzle one’s nerves to oblivion. As D-Day draws near, many brides or grooms can feel overwhelmed. Some might even think of jumping the gun and leaving their partner at the altar. Pre-wedding anxiety can be debilitating for many. That is why it is so important for you to have someone to talk to when the going gets tough – letting all your worries out in the open can alleviate much of your fears. Choose someone you trust who will be able to walk you through these fears. Make sure you trust them to be helpful as well as discreet.

 Your confidant can be anyone you trust. Don’t worry if you can’t reveal your anxieties to your partner. Choose some like your parents, a friend or a relative. Plus, you can even consult a therapist.


Enjoy Each Moment as They Come

Planning such a gigantic event takes a lot of mental strength, patience, and perseverance. It is quite understandable if pre-wedding doubts and worries find their way into your head. Many married couples even declare that the event is much more difficult than any bumps or obstacles in a marriage. However, that should not dissuade you from getting married at all. We admit planning such an event can be arduous, but it doesn’t have to be true for you.

After all, it would help if you remembered why you were getting hitched by your partner. The event is nothing but a celebration of the love and utter devotion you feel for one another. Remember why you fell in love and what led you to get married. Enjoy the smaller things with your partner. Get to know each other more intimately than ever. After all, the person you marry is the one with whom you will probably spend your entire life. It will help you alleviate any wedding nervousness that may crop up.
