So... I'm getting married in 7 days!!! My Fiance and I will have been been engaged for a year on the day of and planning has been both hectic and fun. Before our engagement we had been dating and living together for over 3 years. We even dated in high school before that, so I definitely know that he is the one. We get along very well, we don't fight all that often except the occasional venting of steam. We have generally the same goals in life and many things in common. I have never felt more at home, or more like myself than when I am with him. So why is it that I am scared shitless???? Any suggestions from those that have been through this; are going through this; have been married for years; or have had unsuccessful marriage(s)... I'd love to hear all about it!

Your nerves are normal. Even though you and your fiance live together and you're happy in the relationship, getting married represents a commitment and a change so it's perfectly normal to be nervous about it. This is the worst part, too...the right before the wedding days. My husband and I lived together for a couple of years before we were married but I managed to escape the nervousness...for the most part...because we had the ceremony three days after we decided to get married. My husband's brother and his wife handled all of the arrangements so all we had to do was show up for a very lovely outdoor wedding. You just hang in there and you will be fine. It sounds like you have a great relationship. Congrats!
