How do I calm my nerves before my wedding??

I'm getting married in two weeks and I just know I'm going to be a wreck that day! I'm not a big fan of being the center of attention, so what can I do to make it through the ceremony?!?! :)

  • Try making a perfume of olive oil (base oil) with comfrey, and lavender, and rose oil. and put some on a handkerchief and sniff it, It will help to calm you down, and stay calm.

  • Focus on your husband to be, and try to forget about everyone else.

  • And remember to have something to eat before the ceremony. Two of my bridesmaids fainted because they did not have anything to eat that morning!

  • The only advice I can give...the night before I suggest taking a Advil PM or Tylenol PM. I was so nervous and excited about the big day that I did not get any sleep and my eyes looked horrible even with make up on. Also I wish I had cucumbers to take away the puffiness the lack of sleep caused. Also the more prepared you are the more smooth things will run for you so try to get things done ahead of schedule so that your mind will be much more at ease then if you wait to do things last minute. As for the will have them no matter how well prepared you are. Its no wonder, its a big special day! So try and enjoy it because it goes by fast!! Congrats!!

  • Do something relaxing beforehand like stretches, a walk, etc. Smile and enjoy it. Remember that everyone there is supporting you and your happiness.

  • I like the vodka idea! LOL! Kidding. But seriously. Thanks for the ideas! I know everything will be fine and we'll be married at the end of the day no matter what and that's what counts!

  • Enjoy the day. If you don't like too many people around you on that very special day, you only need to put on a smile and ignore everything else & be yourself.... & Congo.....
