Just before the big day, all the nervousness rushes in and a million thoughts crowd our mind. The most important thought is whether the feeling is normal or whether it means something more. The feeling of panic that occurs prior to the big day can happen at any moment during the planning process, but mostly occurs just days before. Before you begin to wonder 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 “cold feet” or wedding jitters is actually anxiety about a situation. If you are planning your wedding, chances are limerence has faded, and love is here to stay. That crazy about you infatuation fades just a little, and the magnitude of the reality of marriage can instill 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. The most common reason for wedding jitters is nervousness about the actual wedding, and not the relationship. A wedding is exciting and creates a flood of emotions. It is important to understand these emotions are normal.
