The last fear your future husband will have before you get married, is that you might be a runaway bride. Or even worse, you, the bride, may fear you’ll have a runaway groom and would have to face an empty space at the altar.
It’s completely normal to feel ‘wedding nerves’ both before, during and after the wedding. These nerves could be for very different reasons but they can definitely be managed with a couple of cute tips.
Whether you are nervous because you are making that final step, or nervous to have to walk down the aisle with all eyes on you, nervousness is the norm. To calm yourself prior to the wedding…consider the following;
- write your feelings down-it’s a useful way to express them and then be able to reflect on them
- get a bottle of champagne…it’s sure to do the trick
- ensure family or friends are managing the wedding, so that you can relax
If you have nerves after your wedding, it could be because you have started on a new journey as a committed couple. This can be daunting, to think that the person you just married will be by your side till ‘death do you part’. As well as being daunting, it can be overwhelming and frightening. It can also be exciting and uplifting, bring about happiness you’ve never experienced before. You will most likely experience a mixture of these feelings, as newly married couples are still adjusting to their lifestyle together.
The best way to manage post-wedding nerves would be to do the following;
- express your nerves to your husband-believe it or not, he can help!
- ensure you have ‘me time’ fitted into your daily schedule, whether that be with exercise, reading…etc
- visit friends and family regularly, so it doesn’t feel like an overwhelming change all of a sudden
If none of these tips help you, I suggest to discuss it with your husband. He made promises to you (or will be making promises soon), so I’m sure he will be understanding and would have a few suggestions up his sleeve to help you.
