    Hi everyone!

    I am due to get married in 4 days (sat 3rd may) and I need a bit of help/advice. I suffer really bad with my nerves at any big event and I was just wondering if anyone else suffers the same thing, I can't even smile when I am that nervous. Anyway I am looking for some remedies for an icky tummy as I don not want to keep running to the toilet all morning ( sorry for the gross info) Is there anything I can get from the chemist to help? Also did anyone have a little alcohol before the marriage and has this helped or would it make the problem worse?

    Any help/recommendations is really appreciated.

    Stacey x

    Hi Stacy. Funny you should write all that my wedding is in 2 months and my nerves are already shot. You'd think i would be ok as I'm
    44 and it's my 2nd time around but it's not!! Have you tried rescue remedy? And I don't think a little drink will hurt but it's a long day so make sure you eat!!! I'd say nerves (and those that affect certain parts lol) are very normal but try to enjoy the ride, it's your day and it will go so quick. Watch what you eat the day before no spicy food etc...
    You'll be fine, you'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll love every minute.
    Xxxx

    what about taking charcoal tablets for the next few days and on the wedding day...they are meant to good for sorting out the stomach? and stick to plain foods between now and the day...? xx

    Rescue remedy is something that you can drink mixed in water or spray on the tongue, and it calms you down. I used it when I was doing music college auditions. You can probably get it in a health food shop. Try visualising the day all going smoothly, and imagine yourself really enjoying it. When I started to crumble in flute recitals due to nerves I started working with a Neuro-Linguistic Programming practitioner, which involves a lot of visualization to make your brain learn to feel happy and confident. It was surprisingly effective. You won't be able to work with a practitioner at this late stage but if you can imagine walking down the aisle with a smile on your face and really feeling happy you should find that on the day the happiness is there and overrides the nerves. Regarding the stomach, don't be tempted to starve yourself, but yes stick to plain and simple foods, and don't go overboard on having a drink. One small one will do the job.

    have to agree with whats been said - rescue remedy is a very good option and positive thinking can work miracles; the more you worry and fret the more likely things are to go wrong (so deep breaths and keep calm)
    make sure you eat, if your going to drink then toast is a good idea as it'll soak up the alcohol and stop it making you feel sick. make sure you still drink water or other fluids too though as alcohol dehydrates you and that can cause headaches and other problems.
    with a wedding it is only natural to worry about all the millions of things that could go wrong but its really important to have faith in the planning and work youve put into it and just take it one step at a time xx
