We all know that familiar feeling of butterflies in your stomach as you face the prospect of getting married.
Getting cold feet on the big day is a pretty normal response to a life-changing experience, especially when you have to rearrange your priorities for that one special person in your life. First, let’s look at where your pre-wedding nerves are stemming from. Usually, it has got something to do with the fear deep-down in our minds.
Do some of these ring a bell? This fear at the back of your mind can really take the joy out of your big day, and make it a nightmare! You’d be surprised to know many couples feel this way right before the wedding. But the good news is, they make it to the happily ever after part! So, why don’t we try and fix things?
All the things we’ve listed above are negative. What about the silver linings to these clouds of doubt?
Now that the deep-seated issues are out of the way, let’s focus on how not to get nervous with the wedding preparations in full swing.
Now isn’t that a comforting thought? Don’t become a control freak, the earth’s not going to stop spinning if the caterer guy messes up or you trip on your lehenga on the way to the stage! You have enough stuff to worry about; the rest will take care of itself.
It’s your wedding! At the end of the day, all that matters is what you feel. Don’t get bogged down by conventions to express what you really feel….Don’t beat yourself up if you end up laughing out of sheer joy during some solemn ritual while the priest looks at you disapprovingly. (That would make for a priceless picture!) If you don’t feel like smiling, you don’t have to! There’s no crazy joker lurking around to ask, ‘Why so serious?’ (But, smiling is good if you want amazing pictures, just so you know!)
You may feel like everyone is watching and judging you, but they’re probably thinking about what you are offering in the wedding feast! Sad, but true! You feel much more nervous than you appear, So you might be shitting bricks inside, but will look calm and collected outside!
