Wedding Jitters



Experiencing wedding jitters? All the nervousness rushes in, and a million questions flood our thoughts. The most important thoughts are whether the feeling is normal or whether it means something more. The feeling of panic that sets in prior to the big day can happen at any moment during the planning process. Before you begin to wonder if this is the one or if this is a sign, let’s talk about the common feeling of wedding jitters so you can put your mind at ease.

It is important to acknowledge that wedding jitters are actually anxiety about a situation. Also consider that if you are planning your wedding, chances are that limerence faded, and love is here to stay. Maybe that crazy about you infatuation fades a little, and the magnitude of the reality of marriage creates a little anxiety. Nonetheless, love remains. And we all know that love is a feeling that changes over time and stands the test of time through all the not so pretty feelings than can occur during a relationship.

Wedding Jitters are Common

The feeling of wedding jitters is actually so common that psychologists thought to study it more than once to find out whether it has any significance. As it turns out, it is common to have mixed feelings prior to getting married. If you have come this far, it is probably safe to say that you love the person you are going to marry. What causes anxiety and doubt over something as sure as love?

Important decisions involve important feelings. The excitement and anticipation of something as important as creating a legal relationship with another person for the rest of your life is expected to create some anxiety. The stress of planning a wedding can make us more irritable and impatient. All the things we previously overlooked can all of sudden cause aggravation. Planning a wedding can create an emotional roller coaster for everyone involved.

Planning a wedding causes stress, tests relationships, and can create a feeling of anxiety. By the time you find the venue, the dress, meet with family, taste a cake, meet with a caterer, hire a deejay, apply for a license, arrange transportation, and meet numerous other deadlines in the process of planning your magical day, the magic can sometimes feel lost. Now what?


Wedding Jitters Go Away


Wedding jitters is another feeling just like the rest. What we know about our feelings is that they change over time and with circumstances. Being nervous and excited about the actual ceremony will naturally feel different during the honeymoon. In the absence of stress, we are happier and have more patience for the little things like annoying questions from family, wedding party drama and our partner’s snoring. The good news is that wedding jitters go away.

Things You Can Do


Meditation, exercise, eating healthy and practicing healthy sleep patterns are common suggestions we hear from everyone. Naturally, these ideas are great for dealing with anxiety and our health. However, one of the best ways to eliminate stress and anxiety is to eliminate stress and anxiety. While your anxiety might be caused by some other external factor unrelated to wedding planning, eliminating the stress of wedding planning can make things seem effortless.
