Are You Dealing With Pre-Wedding Depression? Know the Signs.

Your wedding day is one of the most significant days of your life but in fact, many people also experience pre-wedding induced stress and anxiety a.k.a pre-wedding depression. This can be due to the often overwhelming and enormous task of planning, especially if you don’t have a wedding coordinator and if you are having to oversee friends and family who are helping. From worrying about the costs associated with the ceremony, reception, and honeymoon, to seating charts, music, and choosing the wedding party, all of these things can pile up to become more of a burden than a blessing. Uncertainty about the relationship may rear its ugly head with questions causing serious feelings of anxiety and depression, such as: How will life be after the wedding? What if this was the wrong choice of a spouse? What if I don’t measure up as a husband or wife? How will I cope with moving to a city or a new job after the wedding?
