Attention anxiety!!

Is it just me, or does anyone have a huge amount of anxiety when it comes to thinking about all the attention they will receive on their wedding day??? I am not a "shy" person, however, I don't love the spotlight being on me, and the closer it gets to the wedding, the more anxiety I am feeling, especially when it comes to our first dance! Anyone else feel this way? Any words of advice to help me over come this? I would love to be able to enjoy the day, rather than worry about people watching me! Thanks!

I had major anxiety thinking about the anxiety I would have on that day! And you know what...I didn't experience any of it! The anticipation leading up to it was the worst.


Everything happened so quickly that I didn't have time to get anxious. I think it helped that we were about 10 minutes late for the ceremony (limo driver got lost) and DH is a stickler for time! So I just wanted to get there and run down the aisle. Which is pretty much what happened.


Typically I break out in red blotchy hives when I'm nervous. That didn't happen either. And the first dance, it was just me and my husband and nothing else mattered!


Once things started I stopped thinking and stopped worrying. I was surrounded by the people who love me the most and that's what mattered!

Awww, well I'm glad you didn't experience the anxiety the day of your wedding! I'm hoping it will be the same way for me. Thank you for sharing!! :) Today is the start of our 100 day countdown and I swear the panic has set in!

I am very introverted, and I think I have social anxiety, because I do get major anxiety attacks in situations where there's a ton of people.  However, once the day came, I was fine.  I was worn out by the time it was all said and done (it may have taken more out of me than I realized), but I had a great time.  Just know that all of the people there love you and want the best for you.

I have issues in crowds which is why we are keeping it small and simple.


Only my closest and dearest have been invited!
