In the midst of all of your preparation, itís common to get cold feet before your wedding day. However, you shouldnít feel guilty for the tinges of doubt that may go through your mind. While they are rarely a sign that itís time to call off the wedding, you still need to address the feelings and deal with them. The following advice can help you through your pre-wedding anxiety.

Is This Normal?

Marriage is a huge commitment and one that you shouldnít take lightly. If youíve spent the months leading up to the nuptials preparing for the big celebration, you may not have had time to question if youíre doing the right thing. Thatís why itís o.k. to have doubts before you commit. Wondering if youíll be part of the divorce statistics, how youíll manage your finances and if you can live with your partners snoring are all normal thoughts. If your friends are planning a hens party, a night out with your best mates can be enough to soften your doubts.

Meditation and Yoga

In the weeks leading up to your wedding, you may need something more to settle your pre-wedding day jitters. Meditation and yoga can provide you with varying breathing techniques that will relax and soothe your anguish. Every time that you begin to get anxious over your upcoming nuptials, you can close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and think happy thoughts.


If your anxiety is all-consuming, you may need to rev up your endorphins. A boot camp class, Zumba, bike ride or walk can be satisfying to your soul. It will also help get you in shape to help fit into your wedding dress. To make exercising more fun, enlist the help of your friends or family members. Itís always more fun when done with a buddy.

Seek Counseling or Therapy

Doubts can rear its ugly head when it comes to major moments in life such as a wedding. A counselor or therapist has the knowledge and expertise to help you through these anxiety ridden moments. Theyíll also be able to determine if there are any underlying causes to your jitters.

Schedule Time with Your Partner

Your partner should be able to erase any worry in regards to your wedding day. When things get overwhelming and out of control, turn to your partner for a romantic night on the town. Spending time together should remind you of the things that you find most endearing and why youíve fallen in love.

Take Advantage of Some ďMeĒ Time

Finding the right dress, caterers, venue and honeymoon destination can take a toll on your nerves. Thatís why itís important to take advantage of some ďmeĒ time. Whether you schedule a massage, facial, manicure, pedicure or hair color and cut, a bit of pampering will do your mind and body some good.

Get Together with Your Friends

Friends and family typically surprise the bride with a hens party before the big day. If you have some anxiety or pre-wedding jitters, this night of bonding can do you a world of good. A night out at a restaurant, bar, theater or other celebratory venue can calm your nerves and put you in a better mood.
