I am not the type that likes attention whatsoever. I had my shower over the weekend and was completely over taken by nerves walking in with everyone looking at me. It was the perfect shower but I came home and got sick from my nerves. I don’t want this to happen the day of the wedding but I also want to be completely present Any ideas?
I also want to follow on this. I'm extremely shy around people, and until just now I didn't really think about how I'll be the center of attention on my wedding day. Kinda terrifying me now that I think of it
I would say to remember to breath when you get nervous. On the day focus on your FH during the ceremony and try not to look at other people until it’s over and you can relax. It will go by so much quicker than you think. I was very nervous about walking down the aisle and having everybody look at me but I honestly looked straight ahead and tried not to focus on anything else and once the ceremony was over I could relax and really enjoy my reception
I'm nervous too! I'm NOT a good public speaker, my voice shakes & everything regardless of what I'm talking about. I'm hoping I'll be so excited & a little bit more comfortable (since I'll know my audience well). I'm also hoping I'll just kinda roll with the punches and allow myself to laugh or cry so hopefully that'll help me

Good idea !! I haven't been nervous till today i think bc there is 3 days till the i dos im so nervous so this is deff a good idea just eye on the ball kind of thing and ball being FH walking to him ...
If you can get lavender or peppermint this might help you can put some on your wrist. I get a very upset stomach when I am overwhelmed and peppermint helps me not get sick and lavender helps me calm down! Also make sure you breathe and don’t lock your knees! Also during the ceremony just pretend it’s just you and him then during the reception things should be better, people will socialize and normally only a few ppl at a time come up to you. Hope this helps some. Just take it one moment at a time. Good luck 😄
My wedding is about 8 months away and I'm already anxious thinking about standing up in front of everyone, so I can totally relate to you on this one. I generally have anxiety and deal with it from time to time, so I won't be surprised if it does happen. I agree with what everyone else said- to focus on the groom, and breathing, and being present in the moment. I also take CBD chocolates before bed to help me sleep or when I'm feeling nervous, and to be honest I'm not sure it physically does anything and could just be a placebo effect, but it definitely helps me! If you don't usually struggle from anxiety then maybe other remedies would work better for you but it also might be worth looking in to.
I'm super shy too! My FH proposed to me at a friends and family BBQ where I'm normally ok because I know everyone. But when the attention shifted from everyone to us (well me) I froze. Don't even know what he said, saw the ring, said yes, held on to him for dear life crying and told him to stop embarrassing me. I completely understand your nerves as well as others that have expressed being the center of attention and love the question and the advice given. I have time to figure out what I'm going to do the day of the wedding but am taking notes on what others have said.
