How to Cure the Wedding Jitters

Save

You're about to take the big plunge, so it's only natural to get cold feet. Think about why you're feeling this way, but keep in mind that many brides and grooms experience the pre-wedding jitters - and that there's a reason you said yes in the first place.

Things You'll Need

  • Stress Management Counseling
  • Stress Relief Products
  • Incense
  • Airline Tickets
  • Spa Gift Certificates
  • Go to a quiet place to get in touch with your feelings whenever the pressures of the pending marriage get to you.

  • Reflect upon what you enjoy most about each other, the factors that make you think you'll be happy together and what is really important to you in life and love.

  • Think back to the very moment you knew you loved and wanted to spend the rest of your life with your future spouse.

  • Look to couples who have survived and celebrated many years of marriage. They can be a good source of support and great role models.

  • Talk with your intended about your doubts and fears. You don't have to wait until after the marriage to communicate.

  • Limit the time you spend with those who may be doing the doubting for you. Make sure your fears are really your own and not those of your friends or your parents.

  • Set aside some time before the wedding to spend a romantic evening with your partner, away from all the wedding talk and plans.

  • Consider going to a couple's counselor to talk out your doubts.

Tips & Warnings

  • Determine what it is you are really questioning - whether it's the relationship itself or simply the daunting idea of marriage. If your answer is the latter, just know that many couples go through the same fears - after all, you are about to take a huge step in your life.
  • Ask yourself some questions about any possible changes that may have taken place or that you have discovered since the engagement. Is your partner exhibiting a different behavior or engaging in activities you disapprove of? These are things that should be addressed before you proceed with the wedding plans.
