Problems cannot be solved using the same level of thinking that created them. We must try something different. Gently, we turn your challenges into opportunities for healing.

Definitely! You’re about to commit the rest of your life to someone, of course you’re gonna feel nervous! It’s totally normal and although I’m just a teen, I feel nervous at the thought of marrying someone. Just take deep breaths and think about how you would help a friend who was feeling nervous. Now, try to apply it to yourself or ask a friend for help. You can also try some resources on here for anxiety or mindfulness! There are people who love you and support you, including your spouse. If you ever need someone to listen, you can message myself or other listeners here.

Definitely. Getting married is a really big deal, and anyone who is getting married/about to be married is bound to feel nervous! Given your situation, feeling nervous is totally normal. It is usually a big ceremony and is a huge dedication. It's an important part of your life and is such a beautiful day. Whether you've set a date or you're not even with a partner and just thinking about marriage, it is totally normal to feel nervous, scared, excited, and perhaps even worried! If you feel as though your nerves may get the better of you, you could chat to a listener on 7 Cups about it (or even a member of your wedding party)!

It is definitely normal to get the butterflies and possibly 'cold feet' before the big day! It is a huge day in your life and usually changes a lot. There is so many worries that come along with getting married and that is 100% normal. Try to think of the reasons you are getting married and specifically to this special person. Hopefully all of the amazing memories and thoughts you have with this special person will give you the feeling of happiness instead of being nervous before! It is a very exciting day to get married, especially to the right person! You deserve this, congratulations!
