What can you do if you get nervous before the big day and can't sleep? Just asking so I know in case it happens, which I know it will.
For me it doesn't matter what anyone recommends as you've already told yourself you're not going to be able to sleep so you wont! A lot of sleep problems comes from our attitudes/beliefs/thoughts.
I hope you have a wonderful day x
I had a Nytol the night before, just pick them up in boots, worked for me and I didn’t feel drowsy the next day at all xx
It happened to me, I got married on Friday. You won't even notice though 😁 xxx
I’d recommend sleeping alone. If your friends are there you’ll just be excited. Getting to bed at a reasonable hour (10-11). I slept all the way through to 6am. It was bliss.
I didn't sleep well for a few nights before but the actual night before I was alone and had been rushing around all day making things, delivering things etc so was knackered. I slept very well.
I literally couldn't sleep before my big day, got about 4 hours broken sleep. I didn't notice till I finally got to my room at the end of the day and the exhaustion caught up with me. Coffee helps but the adrenaline will keep you going 😊😊
I slept like a baby i stayed back in my old room at my mum and dads and was waited on hand and foot went to sleep about 11 and got up at 8 was bliss but by the end of the day i was about to drop. My mum sprayed lavender on my pillow not sure if it helped xx
You'll be so full of excitement and butterflies you'll get through the day with or without sleep.... But avoid alcohol before and try to get to bed at a decent time even just to rest.... My husband didn't.. And regrets it because his eyes look tired in our photos (women can cover this with make up though so)!
Tbh it doesn’t really matter, there’s so much excitement you could be running on no sleep and still not feel tired. I stayed up till 3am drinking with a friend, woke up with a raging hangover but as soon as it was time to get ready it just disappeared.
I only had 2 hours sleep I was so so excited lots going through my mind. I didn’t want to risk sleeping tablets in case I had any side effects as I’d never had them before. I was fine though just had a few glasses of champagne on the morning and after the church and I perked right up. I stayed Dancing for the all of the night so def didn’t affect me
I would recommend having antisickness tablets and things like that to hand. I wouldn't have gotten through my day without them or the week after!
I only slept 15 minutes 😂 luckily one of my bridesmaids couldn't sleep either. So we stayed up watching films and chatting.
The day was so amazing that I didn't even notice the lack of sleep.
I literally fell asleep at 6:30am and woke up at 6:45am when my alarm went off 😂
I know I won’t be able to sleep without my other half . Who believes that seeing each other the night before is bad luck
I didn't sleep at all, was up having a bath at 6 but forgot all about being tired with the excitement of the day!! Crashed out by around 2am though 🤣
I had my hen party night before and drunk until 3am was my first proper drink in nearly 2 years though, was still up at 7 for my daughter and didn't notice how tired i was until 11pm we got married at 2pm and finished reception at half 8 and then was locked out until half 10.
I am a bad sleeper anyway so I know I will have problems.
I didn’t sleep the whole night before my wedding!!! But the adrenaline kept me going through the day!
I wasn't nervous I was just giddy so just left the tv on and it bored me to sleep, I barely slept and my mum came to my hotel room at 4am to check I was okay, but I wasn't tired on the big day 😀
Bizarrely, I had the best 6 hours sleep I've ever had - I'm a chronic insomniac! Ours was a diy wedding and I think I was just so relieved that I'd done All The Things. Don't leave too much to do on the day and give yourself plenty of time :)
Don’t worry about sleeping! One night won’t hurt! If your that excited, try and read a book with a cup of tea but don’t stress over it too much, i promise you won’t even feel tired the next day!
