It’s good to actually remember your wedding day!

I’ve heard this story more than once - someone who was so stressed about their wedding that they drank an unknown sleeping pill the night before the wedding day, and then drank an unknown tranquilizer on the wedding day, along with drinking a few good shots of some unknown alcohol at the reception. And the rest of the story goes something like this: “Oh my head hurts, where am I, who am I, why do I have this white dress on, and … who the heck are you?”(referring, of course, to the man she married).

Everyone will agree that remembering your wedding day is rather important (well at least I think so) and so I’ve compiled a list of things you can do to help ensure some recollection of this supposed-to-be sober and beautiful day in your life.

First things first:

Relax! The wedding day is only the first day of what will hopefully be many years with the one you love. People have the nasty habit of making the wedding day the be-all and end-all and, believe me, it isn’t. Not even your wedding night sex is that great compared to what lies ahead in the years to come as you grow together. And, believe it or not, you may not even get it right the first few times so don’t let that freak you out either.

But where was I? …Oh yes, relax, take a deep breath and read on...


It’s a great idea to sleep well the night before the wedding, but it’s an even greater idea to sleep well the entire week before the wedding. Athletes do exactly this because they realise that they will probably not sleep that well the night before the big day, but if they’ve built up some reserve, then it’s no problem.

Sleeping aids:

Don’t try any new medication the night before the wedding! Try it a week before the wedding to make sure that you don’t have any adverse reactions.

Natural sleeping aids:

Try Valerian drops (Some health shops have it and no prescription is needed).

Pharmaceutical sleeping aids:

I like a product called “Zolpidem tartrate” because it is not habit forming and it does not leave you feeling drowsy the next day. (It has various trade names in the pharmacy). You will need a prescription from your doctor for this medicine. No, you will not become dependant on sleeping pills if you take half a Zolpidem the night before the wedding (unless you have a personality that is highly prone to forming emotional dependencies).


People who exercise regularly are healthier, they sleep better and, yes, they certainly are more relaxed! Need I say more?


Let me say this again.
No UNKNOWN substances the night before or on the day of the wedding! Would an athlete take a drink of an “unknown” substance on the day of the Olympic Games, after preparing for the race for his whole life? No way! So why are people taking the most ridiculous pharmaceutical cocktails on the day of their wedding that would make the average drug dealer turn in his grave?


Avoid coffee if you’re prone to getting a bit worked up - the caffeine is not going to help much. Rather drink tea. Tea, although it contains some caffeine, also contains theanine, which calms you down. That’s why you can have a soothing cup of tea and not a soothing cup of coffee!

Avoid sugar as it also interferes with the delicate hormonal system that controls mood. This is especially so for females, who have a more vulnerable hormonal system.

In any case, if you’re craving coffee and sugars then you’re most probably malnourished and you definitely need to revise your diet and feed yourself better!

Supplements for anxiety and general support:

I prefer to stick to the natural treatment route when it comes to anxiety, so here goes:

1) GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid)

2) L-Glutamine

3) Omega 3 oils

4) Multivitamin and minerals

Other aids:

Taking a bath with some aromatic oils is also good on the wedding day, but it is especially good to keep the passion going when you’re already married! (Massages are great for passion as well, and, yes, relaxation too).

I trust that this article will help you to have full recollection of your special day. Enjoy the wedding and remember, relax - it’s only the first day of the rest of your life!
