I’ve been slowly sort of freaking out the past few weeks…not in a bad way, just holy crap it is really happening!  I even talked to FI about it and he said he thinks it’s normal.  I was worried I was going to freak him out, but he was fine.

@onourway13:  I’ve been tapping my toes waiting for that moment where it REALLY sinks in. Every once in awhile I have that “Holy moly (not usually such polite words) I’m getting married!!”. I tend to forget that all the planning is for me and my mr.! That sounds weird…..I’m over the moon excited, but feel kinda like I’m on the outside looking in. I’m told it really doesn’t sink in until you’re in the gown walking towards your mr 🙂 I’m looking forward to being at the point that you’re at – embrace that feeling darling 🙂

@onourway13:  My wedding jitters kicked in the week of. Then the day came and I was so worried I made myself sick. Then I relaxed when I got to the salon and got my hair done and make up, had 2 mimosas LoL

Then, we arrived at the church and I was in the limo, waiting for the HUSBAND to arrive LOL and when I turned around to see who was outside the limo, I saw him and my mouth was floored. He looked so handsome. And once I saw him, I calmed down.

THen the nerves hit again when I got in the church and realized, this is IT! No turning back. The doors of the church opened and there were so many people. Then I started to relax as I got about 1/4 way through. I started to see familiar faces and then I saw him look at me, and I was at ease again. Its really an amazing day of emotions.

 

You will be fine!!!!

Last week I started getting really stressed about the things remaining on my to-do list, but after crossing off some of the bigger ones, I’m feeling much better.  The real jitters haven’t started yet, but tonight we are meeting with our officiant to finalize the ceremony details, so that will probably be a big moment for me!  Also, when I pick up my dress this Thursday I’ll probably have a freakout!

I’m 12 days out and I feel pretty good. Having a hard time getting to sleep at night. I got a bit nervous a few days ago when our officiant had to back out. yes, this happened. I emailed a bunch of officiants off the Internet, but of all the emails I got back, they all have had other weddings to preform.  So, my oldest son, who is ordained is going to marry us. Kind of interesting, but lovely all the same. 

Jitters, probably not yet. I’m more excited! Everything is done. People have been paid. At the end of the day, if it all goes to hell In a handbasket, I’ll be married to my happily ever after.❤

I have 12 days and when I am busy or at work I don’t notice the nerves.  But when I have  a quiet moment I get nervous I just want to make sure that I have everything done that I need to get done and that is what is worrying me now.

But I am not nervous about being married at all, just about the details of the day.

@Little_Nut88:  I totally cried when I picked up my dress…lol  Seeing it all finished and on the hanger, that is, not just going and picking it up…

@onourway13:  I am 249 days away from getting married and I had a really ill feeling in my stomach today which is weird. It was a reality slap that said “YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED AND ITS IN BRAZIL. WTF WERE YOU THINKING?” So needless to say I’m a little in my feelings right now and I need a hug from my Fiancee to make all right in the world… Frown

Mine hit 2 weeks and one day before the wedding. Not so much that I was getting married, but that I had the biggest party to throw, that I’ve ever thrown and I was sure I was missing things. I ended up doing a lot of last minute tweaks, and they were all worth it 🙂

I started freaking out the morning of, when I was still working on my bouquet, the hair dresser f-ed up my mom’s hair, which then delayed me getting my hair done, and I realized I was seriously running out of time.  

 

I think I was the most jittery right before I walked down the aisle.  Nerves and the tense excitement just got to me.  I was fine though the minute I started walking down.

We get so caught up with the hustle of life we forget to enjoy the little things. Enjoy your engagement, enjoy your fiancé before he is your hubby. Enjoy the simple things like sunsets and ice cream 🙂

Last night. Because I was thinking of everything left to do, and I feel so far behind! I’m so worried about money, even though we dont have all that much left to get to pay for everything. Only about $2000 left, but it seems like so much right now to my freaking out mind.
