ATLANTA (CBS Atlanta) — Getting cold feet on your wedding day? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has put together a wedding day survival guide to “help.”
Comparing a wedding day to a natural disaster, the CDC says the best way to cope is to “build a kit,” “make a plan,” and “stay informed.”
“As you gather your nearest and dearest to celebrate what should be a joyful time, Mother Nature, clashing personalities, and unexpected situations could easily thwart even the best laid plans,” the CDC said in a press release. “Being in the throes of wedding season, many of us here at CDC realized that planning for a wedding isn’t that much different from planning for a disaster.”
The CDC says it’s always good to have a bridal kit around when things turn bad, so the future wife can take a sedative to calm down.
“You never know when Bridezilla might pop up,” the CDC explains. “When dealing with an emotional bride, try to remember your loved one is probably stressed out and will soon return to her caring self after the wedding is over. Be supportive and have some bottled water from your emergency kit and a box of chocolate on hand.”
The CDC also put together a tongue-in-cheek survival guide on zombies last year.
