My wedding is basically 4 months away and I don’t have the feeling that it is actually happening.
Everything is booked – church, reception venue, photographer, dj, cake, my dress has been purchased, save the dates have gone out, engagement pictures have been taken, etc etc etc but yet I don’t feel like I’m getting married.
I kind of don’t feel anything when I think of the wedding – like I’m not dreading it or anything but I’m not like out of my mind excited and I just think it is because I still haven’t had the feeling of “omg I’m getting married” Is it normal??? Does anyone else feel like that??

I think it will hit you closer to the date. I’m getting married in a few weeks and I am not sure it has hit me yet either!! I still have a bunch of things to do (nothing major, though)… it’s all a little surreal.

it doesn’t feel like it’s happening for me either… but that could be the fact that it’s been 9 months since we got engaged and there is no sign of a wedding date on the horizon lol

I felt like that! Right up until my actual wedding day! And even a little during the wedding!

I have the same feeling as we still have 16 months until our date and all that is organised is the venue. all I want to do is book everything and have it happen because otherwise I feel like its not real. like the other Bees have mentioned maybe it wont hit you until you in your gorgeous dress 🙂

Didn’t happen for me, either. When we got legally married our parents flew out to attend our justice of the peace ceremony. We were sitting on the floor playing a game called Munchkin before the JoP arrived. It was never anything more than “He’ll be here at 7.” No OMG WE’RE GETTING MARRIED *froths at mouth*
We later had a big white wedding for people who could not attend. Booked a bakery, a caterer, a venue, got a dress, DJ, photographer, invitations, the whole deal. Never once hit me then that I’d soon be under scrutiny from everyone at our wedding and that we were going to have the big white party.
I don’t think it hits every woman. Hollywood and the media in general has brainwashed women that we all need that over the top, spectacular reaction to the dress, to seeing your groom for the first time, to your honeymoon, or even your proposal.
Sometimes it just doesn’t happen, and that’s perfectly okay.

Totally understand. We’re nine months away, but since we can’t book our venue or anything else until Feb (so we’re also crossing our fingers that our date is even available). I feel like I exist in a holding pattern. I have my dress and the rest of my outfit, but I am so blah about even trying it in. Hopefully I’ll be more excited as it gets closer.
Maybe the way your feeling (or not feeling) is a good thing because it helps keep you from getting so hyped up about one day that you have a huge letdown and depression afterward. I don’t konw, just trying to see the positive (plus I’ve heard that many brides feel similarly).
