gillykat824:  I have been engaged for 3 years we had an engagement party booking and paying off vendors. It finally hit me that I am going to get married on Friday when we went to see the sample for our wedding invitation. I was like wow this shit is about to get real lol, I will be married soon.

I think for me, it was when I was standing in a bridal salon in a wedding dress.

The night before the wedding for me. We had just settled down for sleep in the hotel room (we meaning my bridesmaids and me) and I couldn’t sleep. Then I promptly had an anxiety attack and spent the rest of the night throwing up.

Each time I am reminded of how close it is. If you have a longer engagement (it will be about 2 years and 3 months by the wedding) than it is a bit surreal for a long time. Then it shrinks from a year to 8 months, 7, then 6. At 6 I was like, it is 6 months away?! Then 5, 4, 3, and now 2!!!! I have been hit a number of times. The hits keep getting bigger, haha! I know that I will not get much sleep the night before… I am going to be so freaking nervous and excited!!!

gillykat824:  Lol I may be weird but it didn’t hit me until the day after the wedding. We were at home packing to leave for our honeymoon and I was thinking “Oh.my.God. We’re married…it’s so adult. Now we have to act like grown-ups!” It was a little panic moment lol.

It hit me a bit when I got my wedding dress, but it REALLY hit me yesterday when we got our marriage license in prep for the ceremony (1 month before the big day). The official paperwork was so… official. 🙂

gillykat824:  Remarkably well, actually. I got about 30 minutes of sleep, woke up early, showered, and was fine the rest of the day. But DH was a bit disappointed when we got back to the hotel suite and I just wanted to soak in the whirlpool and take a nap. I was half dead til the next morning lol.

  • Wedding: A very pretty church.

When we discussed timelines and getting engaged. He asked if (after we had agreed to get engaged ‘in principle’) he ought to call his mum. I felt instantly like vomiting 😛

In a good way?  When we started seriously looking at reception venues. It just suddenly became real. I was so excited and happy. 

In a bad way? About two weeks ago out of nowhere. I started sobbing and cried so hard I made myself sick. FI was up most of the night taking care of me while I was hysterical. We had a serious talk about calling the whole blasted thing off and I decided that I could do it. Which is good, I guess lol.

gillykat824:  It really hit me during formal family portraits the day of the wedding, to be honest. I almost shit my pants!
