Congrats!  I think my "real moment" was the first time my fiance referred to himself as my future husband.  *sigh*

Soo exciting!!  It’s all going to happen so fast now, remember how it feels right now for the times that the stress takes over — remember why you’re doing it all!!  Have fun!

We’re getting ready to order & mail our STDs, and I think it will really hit when we actually make it official with our guests that it’s really happening!

Mailing our STDs felt pretty "real" because I was announcing the wedding to family and friends around the world.  Other than that, I don’t think I will have another "real" moment until I get to the bridal suite and check in a few days before the ceremony.

Congrats! The journey of being engaged is amazing. 

Picking up, tearing open and staring at our Save The Dates that we picked up from some way out there printing house in Burbank CA was a big "wow, we’re really doing this"  But for sure the biggest "OMG I am getting married" was when I liked a dress enough to put on the veil.  Still gives me shivers.

1. Getting my dress was surreal.  It’s something you imagine (or at least I did) as a little girl.  I couldn’t believe I was actually trying on wedding dresses.. 

2. The other day my FI said something to the effect of "after we’re married we need to… " it sank in a bit more to hear him say it!

3. When we went to the food tasting last weekend at the place we are getting married. Talking to the lady about the wedding (such as where I’ll walk in, where we will be introduced as Mr. & Mrs., the cake, the DJ, etc.,  was SO neat.   This really made me feel like a bride. I was planning my special day.

I’m finally feeling like it’s coming up and we really are getting married! SO exciting.

5 months to go!!

It felt real when we finally selected our venue. We looked at venues for 2 months straight – I even created this crazy spreadsheet with over 50 local venues on it and all the pros and cons. The moment we decided on "the perfect place" and I knew that that was where we were going to be married, I was overwhelmed with the reality of it all. It’s such an exciting feeling!

At first I felt it was getting real when I picked my wedding band and then when I picked up my dress. More recently it’s been feeling real with pre martial counseling, regeristering and working on invites! I can’t believe it’s almost here!
