I am still just over a year out, but I kind of know what you’re talking about. Today is September 1st. SEPTEMBER! Just in general, I had a “WTF” moment when looking at my calendar today. In my mind, I was just looking around at the flowers growing and thinking “Wow, finally – summer is almost here!” And now it’s over!

It also made me think – ok, this is fall – this time next year I will be about to get married! It’s funny, I had a minor freak-out. Not cold feet, exactly, but just a wake up call about the enormity of what we’re actually getting ready to do! Somehow with the fun of looking at wedding colors and cakes and venues, it all started to seem like just a big fun party.

I definitely had a moment of “OMG, this is actually going to happen…and FAST” as my wedding date was approaching.  I think it’s normal, because you spend so much time preparing before the big day. I wouldn’t say I had cold feet, but I was definitely anxious about getting everything done and having enough time to do it all.

For me, I tried to build in time to RELAX as the date approached.  I made sure that I kept my workouts/yoga time, because I was able to de-stress that way.  I gave myself a timeline, so that I wouldn’t keep working on wedding stuff all night long.  I made LOTS of lists so I could ensure that everything got done.  Oh, and I delegated things to my sister and husband, so I wasn’t the only one covering everything.

Hang in there.  It gets stressful, but when you walk down the aisle towards your sweetheart it’s all worth it. 🙂

We have 11 days. And I have moments that it seems real, but mostly it feels like it’s still so far away.

I’m right there with you. It doesn’t help that literally five people a day at work tell me “OMG IT’S SO CLOSE!” I want to vomit every time someone says that!

I felt that waypacking up the car to drive up to the wedding (6 hours away) a few days before. I wish I had felt it earlier, I think it infuses everything with this really bittersweet specialness. So much excitment about the future, but also the sense of “this is the last time I will do this unmarried, this is the last time I will sign my electric bill check with my old name.” It helps you savor things.

I think I hit that point around 30 days. I am now 4 days out and everything is surreal. My partner in crime at my job just gave his 2 weeks notice yesterday and I am numb to it. I should be freaking out as it will be tough here without him mostly because my workload will now triple but no feeling at all.

I am so ready to enjoy our day whether things go wrong or not.

Good luck ladies! It really does fly by fast!

I think it hit me just the day before, when we were at the venue, unloading our stuff, seeing our families, and there was no more planning, just time to do it. I remember feeling very happy and very relieved. Of course, the next day, I freaked out saying my vows and left off the last line!

The whole Mrs and learning a new name was a major freakout for me, but I didn’t decide until after the wedding.

@Tessabella, Im with you.  I am 11 days out, and it has seemed real for MONTHS now.   never had an “OH MY GOD” moment, just one day I was like “awesome…Im really marrying my best friend, soul mate, partner in crime, most wonderful person ever” and I was totally at peace.  I have about 5 people a day now being like “ITS SO CLOSE! Are you nervous?!” and it really irritates me.  Im sure Ill be nervous that day, but seriously, nerves arent automatic in the time leading up to it.

@KellyV – I HATE those questions too. The same people ask me that same question everyday. UGH! Since they ask the same question, I give them the same answer. “No, I am excited and can’t wait for the day to come so I can enjoy it!”
