In brief: Let go of perfection

The need for perfection can ruin your experience.
Assume that something unexpected will happen, hopefully nothing serious, and that it will serve as good family lore for years to come!

In brief: Try to delegate

and simplify whatever you can.
Let the best man and best woman, wedding party, and close family members help with whatever they can. Use books that help you plan out all the details as far in advance as possible. Hire a wedding planner if you can afford it.

In brief: Stress management

Congratulations on your wedding.
I recommend 8 hours of sleep, possibly with the help of melatonin. Next i would look into guided imagery, deep breathing, yoga, prayer and meditation. These techniques are notable in the literature. Lastly, focus on the beautiful days ahead and rid your brain of any worries you cannot control. These negative thoughts are waistedull and lead to more stress.
