Is anyone else worried about how they are going to control their nerves? I have social anxiety and depression and have always found it difficult to be in front of anyone let alone 40 family members. It got so bad in at school that I wouldn't go into class if i was late so i didn't have to walk in in front of people. I would like to have only 1 glass of champagne when in getting ready so I can remember what's happening. Can anyone share their ideas or what they did? Xxxxx TIA xxxxxx

Have you heard of Bach Rescue Remedy? It is a floral essence which helps calm nerves.

I'd probably have a shot or something strong to try and calm me!

Just remember that the people you have there love you, and they'll understand if you get nervous or anxious! It's your and your partners day, once you see them I'm sure all your nerves will go :)

Its not as bad as your expecting it to be... The difference with School and your wedding day is that you have invited these people, family & friends to share your day.. They are there to be happy for you in your married life, not to take the mick & bully... Alot of brides have glass of courage while getting ready, i suffer with anxiety & depression too, i rely on Headspace meditation when i am stressed or cant sleep.. I hope you have a wonderful day, & feel like princess for the day.

Talk some natural sleeping remedies for the night before to ensure you sleep enough, and drink camomile tea or similar throughout the morning and just remember your breathing x
