Haha, very briefly this morning, I thought, “Holy shit, my fitting/trials are on Saturday…bachelor/bachelorette party on the 27th…shower on the 10th…then we’re getting married! ohgodohgodohgod NOTHING IS DONE YET!”

Yup, after attending FI’s cousin’s wedding this past weekend and seeing how much they were scrambling to do the very last days, it really woke me up.  5 more weeks!!!

Oddly enough, it hasn’t really hit me yet. I’m 3 1/2 weeks out and nearing the end of my DIY projects. I think what’s stopping me is my FI is on the other side of the country for military training and can’t use his phone. I haven’t spoken to him since June 17th, but he comes home on Monday! 🙂

I’m guessing it’ll hit me when he gets home and we’re finalizing all the little details.

No. Not at all. About three months ago I had the “I’m planning a real, actual wedding” moment. That was a bit of a surprise. But it definitely hasn’t hit properly yet!

Yup, now that my guy and I are planning out alllll the details (we’ve got a very DIY backyard-style wedding), it’s hit in a panicky sort of way. Doesn’t help that I’m working 50-70 hour weeks out of town, and he’s gigging with his band every weekend plus working. ACK. ACK ACK ACK.

But I have faith it’ll come together and be stupendously fun!

I have brief moments of panic, but it hasn’t really hit me yet.  I still have so much to do!  And two of my next four weekends are write-offs.  Oh geez.  Panic slowly rising…

It totally hit me about a week ago. FI’s bachelor party is the 19-22 in Vegas. My bachelorette is the 27th. We leave for the wedding on the 6th. In less than 5 weeks, I will no longer be single. I’ll be MARRIED! It’s the married thing that really hit me. I’m 38 and had kind of given up on finding a husband when I met FI. I never really thought i’d be married and I will be in about 4 weeks. Holy crap!!!

This week has been constant “holy crap this is real!” moments. First the fact that we’re in the low 40’s on our countdown, aka we’ve got a month and change left to go. Crazy!

Second, all the fun things are coming up quick. I’ve got my hair/make-up trial this weekend and my final dress fitting (and take home) in two weekends. Then my shower and bachelorette are the first weekend in August! Presents are starting to arrive and the number of RSVPs we’re waiting on is steadily dwindling.

And things are getting paid off! HM is paid in full as of this morning, and pretty much all balances are due the second week in August except the catering bill.

AND, I get the “the wedding is so soon! are you excited?” comment multiple times a day now.

I will not miss wedding planning. I have a list of about two dozen little non-related things to do (i.e. confirm hair and make up trial, take photos and notes for coordinator to set up decor). I’ve been significantly making progress even though I’m mentally exhausted. 

I’m making decisions even quicker now… streamlining things. I think the two best decisions I’ve made are: 1) switching out bridesmaids and 2) getting a photobooth. 

We will see how it all turns out the day of. I’m super focused on working out and eating right to make sure I feel comfortable and look comfortable in my dress.

Nope totally hasn’t hit me yet. I just feel super stressed out and like I can’t wait for the next month to be over.

I’m so stressed and anxious and excited… been having a lot of “everything going wrong” nightmares. I’m mentally checked out at work and just want to be DONE already. I’m at the 3-weeks-left until vacation point and I’m just dying to get on that plane to the US, eat a hoagie, and GET MARRIED.

Time is going by incredibly fast, and there are still only the odd moments when it all seems real. Sometimes I stop and realize – oh yeah, this big event will actually take place, witnessed by all our friends and family, and isn’t just something I have been imagining and visualizing for the last year!

Things have been coming together in the last few weeks, and our venue (including catering) came in under what I expected in terms of the budget, so I am happy about that. I am nervous about my second fitting on Friday, though. At the first fitting, the dress fit but my corset was basically closed at the back (no nice v-shape). I am worried that I won’t be able to tighten it as much as I would like to on the wedding day. Anxious to see how it fits on Friday!

Good luck to all the bees with the rest of their planning!
