I’m just curious when it actually sunk in to you all that your getting married?!
We got engaged a little over a month ago and jumped right into planning. We have a date,bridal party, venue, save the dates, colors, photographer, minister, hotel rooms, and transportation all set… But it still hasn’t hit me!! I still haven’t had that ‘I’m a BRIDE’ moment.
I’m just curious if this is normal, and if so when it hit you all?

It’s felt like it’s starting to sink in at different times. One time while talking with a photographer and discussing the details of the day. Another time when deciding on a wedding dress and realizing, I’m getting married in this dress!

When I tried on MY dress, not just a sample.

It hasn’t hit me yet either. We’ve been enagaged for 3 weeks. We discuss the wedding, meeting with the priest next week, but hasn’t sunk in yet

Still has not hit me. My date is pretty far off so that has a lot to do with it. But I think it will really hit me when my bridal shower comes and I’m actually standing in front of my FI!
We have been together so long; it feels like we are already married LOL

Honestly, it truly hit me about 11am on the morning of the wedding, before that I was excited, but that was the moment where I realized that it wasn’t a dream, it wasn’t months away and this was it 🙂

@Artificial-Sweetener: we have too! We’re excited for the day, and to be legally married, but neither of us expect it to change anything. To us, were already married.

I didn’t get the bridal feeling until the actual day! … when I was all hair and make-up’d up and put my dress on… then it was WHOOOOSH! – bridal hit me like a freight train! 🙂

@oracle: ahh that’s what I’m scared of! I want to get the initial emotional tears out of my system before the big day!!

It didn’t really hit me that I was actually getting married was when I put on my dress and veil. My makeup and hair was done and my BMs were around me and I realized this is not a drill!
This moment…right here….

I got engaged in August and it STILL hasn’t hit me. Thought there might be something wrong with me! LOL glad to see I’m not the only one!
I’m sure when I find THE dress it won’t feel so much like a dream

it hit me when i went to change my name lol. I’m not a girly girl and though I had dreamed of a wedding growing up, my actual wedding wasn’t even close to what I thought it would be so I think that kinda lost the “omg I’m getting married!” feeling during the whole thing.

@Sa7208: honestly, the week leading up to the wedding was so busy, I forgot about wondering if I’d ever feel bridal. So, when it hit, it was actually a fantastic feeling 🙂 you’ll see!! 🙂 🙂
