The Groom: 6 Steps to Getting Over Your Pre-Wedding Anxiety

Large

Why do we always think that the bride is the only one who suffers from pre-wedding anxiety? Believe it or not, but no marriage can take place without the bride and groom, which means that the two people about to get married will most likely panic equally. Let’s ditch all the insane and cruel stereotypes that dictate a man can’t become emotional or show any signs of vulnerability. If women are more expressive, it’s because they’ve learned to be more vocal about how they feel since birth because it’s socially accepted.

We want to help you get all the feels out in a healthy way, so here are 6 pieces of advice to really consider, dude:

1. Prepping for the big day:

Getting ready for your wedding day requires proper mental preparation since all eyes will be on the groom. You can’t let feelings of anxiousness get to you or cause you to throw random tantrums. A great way to get over those annoying feelings is to throw a first dance rehearsal with your wife-to-be and invite your friends to come cheer for you and support you to really get you in the wedding mood.

2. Share your feelings with a trusted married fellow:

Just like the bride shares her feelings with her best friends, mother, or sister, you, too should share your feelings with someone who’s close to you and whom you trust. We know it can sometimes be hard to fully articulate how you really feel, which tends to affect your actions, like maybe you find yourself taking your feelings out through other inexplainable ways, like anger or isolation. However, it’s time to buckle up, adult, and talk about everything going on inside. Who knows? The outcome might surprise you. At the same time, you gotta stay away from negativity and humans who get on your nerves, or else, things might take a really bad turn. Surround yourself with those who love you and truly want to help you.

3. Get involved in the wedding planning process:

You need distractions to keep your thoughts at bay. Being active and genuinely invested in the process of planning the wedding can do just the trick by keeping you busy and focused on the countless details there are. For some people, keeping busy before the wedding is exactly what they need to distance themselves from their own exhausting thoughts. Besides that, teaming up with your woman has got to always be a priority of yours.

4. Talk to her:

There’s no better time to open up your heart to your Mrs. to be than now! Share your every consuming thought with her; your fears, your desires, your worries, EVERYTHING! No one will understand you better than the person who’s going through the exact same thing as you are. The wedding day marks the first chapter of a whole new book that the two of you are going to write T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R.

5. Exercising and meditating:

Both exercise and meditation are fantastic ways to rid you of all the pre-wedding anxiety and tension in your body. Try to follow a certain routine, you can even set it yourself without outside interference. If you don’t go to the gym, you can take one-hour strolls every day to clear your head. Meditation is key to dealing with bad emotions and anger, it helps restore balance to your life and thoughts when you feel like the universe is working against you, especially when you're the groom and it's right before your own wedding. 

6. Time your bachelor party right:

Do not and I repeat, DO NOT throw your bachelor party the night before the wedding. Big no no. It’s best to leave the day before the wedding untouched and instead hold the party before that, but also during a time that’s close to the wedding. The day before the wedding should be all about relaxing, taking a break from everything, throwing on your PJs, and indulging in all your guilty pleasures.
