Cold Feet? How to Handle Doubt Before the Big Day

Get ready to plan like a pro.
Getting married is a huge commitment and it's totally natural for you to have some jitters before the big day. If you're having a major case of cold feet, tackle your emotions head on and decide whether it's just a little case of the pre-wedding worries or whether you and your partner aren't meant to be. Here are six ways to banish doubt and be true to yourself before the big day:
1. Think long and hard about what's really bothering you. 
Try to pinpoint the exact thing that's giving you cold feet. Are you nervous about the wedding, or is it something larger than that? 
2. Confide in someone you trust. 
You don't have to keep your concerns a secret. Choose someone you're extremely close to and confide in that person. Hopefully he or she will help you determine what's causing the cold feet and help you get through it. 
3. Try not to dwell on all the things that will change. 
Yes, marriage means change. But that certainly isn't always a bad thing! Focus on the all of the exciting new experiences you'll have as a couple, and don't try to anticipate all of the possible challenges. 
4. Think about the longevity of your relationship. 
Do you see yourself spending forever with this person? Can you imagine growing old and gray together? If the answer is yes, than you're probably just stressing over the big day. 
5. Stay calm and trust your gut. 
At the end of the day, you have to go with your instinct. Decide how you truly feel about your partner and make a decision while you can. 
6. Talk it out with your partner. 
If you're really concerned, have a conversation with your partner. It may be difficult, but it's best to talk things out before the big day. Consider finding a professional counselor who can help you and your partner continue the conversation.
