Sheryl’s work was indispensable in helping me soothe and address my fears and anxieties around my engagement and approaching wedding day. Without her guidance, wisdom, and assurances, my overwhelm may have clouded what turned out to be one of the calmest and most incredible days of my life”

More praise for The Conscious Bride’s Wedding Planner…


It was supposed to be one of the happiest — if not the happiest — day of her life, and yet, as her wedding day approached, the bride-to-be was anxious.

Not about the color of the orchids, the string quartet or other trivial details. Ann (not her real name), a 27-year-old magazine editor from San Francisco, was confused, scared and oddly enough, almost angry about the idea of getting married.

After years of constant neglect in favor of its more useful counterpart, my left hand has come into its own. Sure, the right does the writing and dials the phone, but lately, as it performs these mundane tasks, my left hand has been basking in my admiring gaze. The left hand is wearing THE RING. You know, the one every girl dreams about — or at least I did. My boyfriend of three years, the man whom I love, proposed on New Year’s Day. And I said yes. I was elated, excited, and as the gravity of the situation began to sink in, more than a little confused. I had wanted this — I knew it was right — why did I feel so weird?

That is how I found myself bawling in a Borders parking lot on a Thursday night, the evening after my engagement began.

    I wanted to leave a message of encouragement for anxious brides out there. I had anxiety from day 2 of my engagement. I luckily googled “cold feet engagement” & came across Sheryl’s work. What a blessing! I ordered her book, realized that I was not losing my mind and started my process of honoring my transition. Hard work throughout the 8-month engagement (with the help of my Kinesiologist, counsellor, homeopathic remedies etc), but the result was a completely relaxed wedding day, feeling calm, comfortable & sure. I was so happy and present walking down the aisle, something I dreaded in my anxious state. I now recommend The Conscious Bride to my patients and anyone getting married! Loving the light at the end of the tunnel! XxX

    Sheryl, this is simply a message to say thank you for all of the work you put into your courses and for creating such helpful material for all of the people struggling with anxiety! I just finished with your “Break Free From Anxiety” course and I am filled with so much gratitude; this course has contributed into saving my relationship. I am the classic commitment-phobic-sensitive-type and this course made me realize that I’m not only not alone in my feelings, but that it is possible to overcome all of the overwhelming anxiety that I have suffered with in relationships for years. I appreciate you and am SO thankful for all of the work you have put into helping people like myself and others with such a specific type of anxiety.
