It is always a dramatic time when you or someone you know and love gets married either for the first time or all over again. It is a time where your patience and nerve get tested to their very limits which can take its toll on any bride and groom. Some suffer much more than others depending on their emotions and personalities, but generally speaking everyone needs at least a small break from planning. Here we have a look at some or the more common ways to keep those jitters away.
Hang Out With Your Loved Ones
Your friends and family are always going to be there to help you through life, and especially when you plan on sharing the rest of your life with someone. They know you better than anyone else and will know just what to say to help you keep cool, calm and collected. You could go and have some dinner or a drink with them to give you more sense of escape, or you could all sit at home and watch movies together. It is human nature for people to make other people feel better due to our ability to feel mercy, and close ones do it better than most, so you should aim to spend a bit more time with them.
Distract Yourself With Activities
Keeping your hands and mind busy will always help in combatting big emotions as you get too focused on the task at hand to worry about silly things. There is an almost endless list of things you could do, or try out, to keep you nerves in check. You could go down the relaxation route and go for a spa day, or even a weekend get away with your best buds. The other options are more physical including various sporting activities like archery, cycling, yoga and more. Another option, should you choose to accept it, is to get stuck into some crafts. Not only will it keep you busy, but it could help go towards some of the wedding.
Try To Bite The Bullet
Your last resort when you are panicking about the future is to stop and take a nice deep breath and say ‘this is how it is’. Yes it’s a big deal, and yes there is a lot of planning, but you can’t let it overwhelm you because that is when mistakes are made. You are much more useful to yourself and others when you are not freaking out! You are getting married. You are going to spend the rest of your life with this person. You will probably have family with them too. Get to grips when that then you will be golden.
You are not the first person to ever feel this way, and you certainly won’t be the last. If you need to you can always speak to women who have already been wed before, or if it is really getting to you it might be an idea to seek the help and guidance of a counsellor.
