I am extremely excited about getting married next year! My wedding day is the biggest, most important day of my life (apart from the birth of my son). In fact, my wedding day marks the beginning of my new life.
I feel blameless for having pre-wedding jitters. My reservations simply remind me that I am a human being with understandable apprehension about a dramatic life change that is to come. I am certain that my fiance is also experiencing an emotional blend of excitement and jitters, and that is healthy for both of us.
Clearly, sharing the most intimate moments of my everyday life with another person is a bit daunting. For so long, I have lived a single life, and now I am just days away from waving goodbye to life as I know it.
To me, marriage is the most sacred, joyous, and beautiful experience two people can share. I am honoured that my partner deems me worthy as the person to spend decades with.
As my wedding day nears, I remind myself of the wonderful years that are ahead. And nearly instantly, my fears vanish. Nevertheless, I make it a point to truly experience every moment of the days leading up to the big day.
These pre-wedding jitters make for memorable stories that my soon-to-be spouse and I are sure to share with our children!
Today, I realise that the pre-wedding jitters I am experiencing are quite normal. Most brides and grooms experience a small bout of cold feet before saying “I do.” Though I feel a bit nervous at the moment, I am certain that my decision to tie the knot is the right one for me.
- 1. What are my pre-wedding jitters telling me about the magnitude of the big day?
- 2. What can I learn from my uneasy feelings as my wedding day approaches?
- 3. How can I boost my confidence in my decision to marry the one I love?
When I think about it, my wedding jitters stem from the stress of planning a wedding and also the pressure I’ll feel on the day when walking down the aisle and standing up in front of a lot of people. I’m a bit of an introvert so it’s scary. It’s nothing to do with having doubts about getting married. It’s an overwhelming process, planning a wedding isn’t easy. It’s basically planning a massive event for everyone you know when you have no experience in event planning.
