We’re seven months away from getting married (one month away from booking our venue and everything) and today I just saw good pics of myself in my wedding dress with my veil. I was thinking ‘maybe I’ll go without my tiara because I don’t wear one everyday anyway’ and then it hit me that it won’t be just any day. Don’t get me wrong I am happy as hell to be getting married and I love my FI to death, but there is a bit of me going ‘Yikes!’. I was wondering when (or if) that moment had hit other bees.
If you had many of these moments you can select multiple options!

It has come in waves. Putting down big deposits certainly made it feel real, as did sending out our invitations. I voted for getting our marriage license though – that really made it sink in for me. That piece of paper is what makes the difference.
But of course I had another wave when we hit the one month mark, the two week mark, and now it is feeling more and more real as I sit here writing my vows with 10 days to go.

- Wedding: June 2014 - Baby #2 due Sep 2017
I’ve only had a few seconds of deep, profound clarity and butterflies before it’s gone again. I know this is the right choice but the DEPTH of how long forever actually is isn’t something my mind can comprehend very often apparently!
We even got legally married last month and after 5 seconds of clarity and tears in an elevator 20 mins after, the paperwork was done I wasback in my blissful daze again 😛

In the middle of the ceremony
Luckily DH had to say I Do first- cause when he said ” I DO. ” my thought process went like this.
” OMG I’m supposed to say I do.
Oh no what if I say something else.
OMG I do means I’m getting married.
This is for real.
this is forever. I get to say I do! Just like the movies.
I do I do I do i DO! “
and then I said “I do!” haha

- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
It still hits me that we GOT married! Every once in awhile, I realize wow, I have a husband named Alex. He is MINE. I kinda own him 😉 I’m used to my new last name though and absolutely love it.

I think it really hit me this week.
The rest of the engagement period I knew but it was always a little off in the distant future. Then with work and grad school and moving etc and the holidays it snuck up way too quick.
Now I am in a panic and feeling sick from all the anxiety!
I’m actually listening to relaxation music right now so the hopefully soon I can get to sleep

@renwoman: It hit me in little tiny bits in the months leading up to the wedding. But then it really hit me after we were legally wed. We had a beautiful wedding ceremony with family and friends in VA, but it wasnt legal. I was happy and giddy and called him husband. But on our Honeymoon we had the legal ceremony. Once that happened, it hit me like a ton of bricks. It felt so different to be legally married to him.
But we just passed out 3 year anniversary and I still have moments when it hits me, “We are married! He’s my HUSBAND” Still cant believe it!

It hit me when we signed our marriage license..I may or may not have cried over giving up my last name and taking his. My sister thought it was hysterical.
