shawna.darling4:  Just depends. Where are you planning on wearing the shirts? To work? running errands? Just for photo-ops? The only “number” shirts I ever really see is like a onsie when I child turns 1 month, 2 months, etc. Long story short, I wouldn’t do it, seems like a waste of money, but if you find the idea fun or useful, go for it! 🙂

You can design your own shirts at CafePress or CustomInk.

Personally, I do not think that would be cute at all.  If one of my girlfriends told me she was planning to do this, I would tell her she should take a step back and try to focus on some things besides her wedding.

That said, it obviously will not hurt anyone, and if it will make you happy, then go for it.

I think its hugely unnecessary. Get one that says “bride” and be done with it.

Seems a little bit “crazy bride” to me

Yeah, I would go with “no” It just seems kinda attention-grabby. I remember when I was out and about leading up to the wedding, I ended up talking about the wedding any way, it naturally seemed to come up. I wouldn’t want a shirt to draw even more attention to it. I wouldn’t  want to talk to the bagger at the grocery store about my wedding if I was just buying something quick. I did love wearing my bride hoodie though!

I think something less attention-grabby would be to do a countdown on your fridge for just you and your FI to see.

My husband had one that said “counting down to:10/9/10 (wedding date). then you can wear it longer and it’s only one shirt. i ordered it online.

I’m just surprised that any bride would have money to throw into a set of custom t-shirts that will be worn for one day each

If each custom shirt is $15, and you do it for 10 days, that’s $150. Not a ton of money, but certainly there’s something better you could spend that on…

This reminds me of a thread where a bride was like I’ve designed a ten page (I might be exaggerating) trimester newsletter for my wedding which is years away!!!!!! 

So I’d say no. 

However I have nothing against countdowns and yeah you will be super excited so maybe it could be something for you and your FI?
