to suddenly become too scared to do something you had planned to do, especially something important like marriage. We're going to marry next Saturday - that's if Jasmine doesn't get cold feet! I'm worried she may be getting cold feet about our trip to South Africa.

Hello Jelena, Yes, "gets cold feet" often is used to describe when someone was going to do something that they may have been nervous about (example: getting married, making a public speech, talking to someone for the first time, going to a job interview), and then they decide that they just can't do it. This is usually based on fear of actually going through with that action. Hope that help!
