Tips For Dealing With Pre-Wedding Nervousness

By  | 

Many brides and grooms-to- be are known to suffer from ‘pre-wedding jitters’. As the countdown to one’s wedding day begins, many are known to feel nervous, stressed out and anxious. It is important to deal with these feelings instead of simply choosing to ignore them. After all, it is essential that you relax and have fun during your wedding celebrations.

Here are some ways to deal with such anxiousness:

  • Talk to a friend– What are you nervous about? Is it just the stress of dealing with the guests and the frenzied celebrations-or is it something deeper? It is important that you deal with these issues now, instead of regretting at a later stage when things have already spiraled out of control. Speak with someone you trust. The one you confide in must naturally be a good listener, or someone who has dealt with similar experiences. Professional counseling can also help one greatly in such matters.
  • Maintain a diary– Writing down your feelings is known to be very calming in everyday life too. If you are unable to speak with someone about your innermost feelings, then this is a great way of clearing one’s head and giving those tumultuous thoughts an outlet.
  • Opt for Massage Therapy-Massage can be very relaxing and can stimulate the feel-good neurotransmitters that help boost our mood. Massage therapy is also known to help one sleep better.
  • Learn to say ‘No’-Indian wedding celebrations are often dictated by traditions and customs. Elders have a great deal of say in every matter and you might often feel forced to do things to please them. However, it is essential that you learn to say ‘No’ instead of being coerced into doing things you do not want to do. Naturally, such matters are sensitive and need to be handled with care.
  • 5) Confide in your significant other-Marriage is a beginning of a lifelong friendship. Why not confide in your partner to be about how you are feeling? Chances are that he/she might be dealing with the same thoughts and it often helps to share such apprehensions.

Hiring a wedding planner is also an important way of dealing with stress that is invariably associated with planning an Indian wedding. Such professionals can handle all the nitty gritties of the event, while you sit back, relax and enjoy your special day.

Remember that such feelings of nervousness are completely natural –after all, your life is going to alter in a drastic manner! By following these simple tips you can deal with this anxiety and relax significantly on your big day.
