Once upon a time there was a girl who never had to think twice about sleep. It was just that thing you did at night and nothing more. But as she got older and life got more complex, her daytime thoughts and worries started to invade that nighttime dreamland until one night, the unexpected happened. She laid in bed...and stayed awake the entire time. 'What kind of sorcery is this?!", she would ask herself. And as this strange occurrence started happening more and more often, she started to realize that anytime something big were happening the next day, her brain refused to turn off at night. Thus begins our tale...

With all these issues, I can say with 99.9% certainty that despite having Mr. M by my side, I will not get a wink of sleep the night before the wedding. I know my self very well and I know I will be way too stressed out about everything that needs to happen the next day (even though I shouldn't be since our wedding planner will be running the show). And yes I know, stressing about not sleeping is also a self-fulfilling prophecy--but I just can't help it.
So, anyone have advice on getting some shut eye the night before the wedding? Prescription drugs are out of the question for me because I'm afraid they won't work and will only leave me extremely groggy. Even natural supplements like Melatonin sometimes don't work when I'm going through a particularly bad spell. Help me hive!
