I am getting married in 3 months and during this whole year long engagement, I’ve been waiting for this to feel real! I’ve had my moments where I feel like “Oh my goodness I’m actually getting married!!” but that feeling doesn’t stick around. Don’t get my wrong, I am really really happy and excited. I guess I’m just still in shock that it’s actually happening! It feels kinda like a dream. I don’t think it’s going to feel real until the week of the wedding. When did things start to feel “real” for you?

I’m less than 3 months out too, and I have fleeting “holy crap” moments, but for the most part I haven’t had any freak out moments. It doesn’t feel real to me either yet.

I’ve been married for three months and it doesn’t feel real, lol. I never really had that moment, the day just came, it was awesome, but never really soaked in. It didn’t even feel real the day of, just like a big party with my family and friends.

It’s feeling super real now, a little over a month out. I’m not freaking out or super stressed like I thought I’d be though. That will change soon I’m sure though lol. Now that I can actually envision the big day and I know how close it is, it’s real!

I’m going to have to agree with MrsN14.
There is so much stress/drama/BS that surrounds planning a wedding that sometimes that magical feeling just won’t come until the last minute, or not at all.
Planning my second wedding (Oct. 2014) I’m running into major BS and all I can say is enjoy the DAY!! Know that you have that one special day to party and celebrate your wedding. That magical feeling should come, even if happens at the last minute.
Don’t beat yourself up over not feeling “bridal” 24/7. I know I don’t.
Best of luck!!

pinkrose23: I’m getting married November 14th and it doesn’t feel real for me yet either, I sometimes sit there and think ‘by Christmas I’ll be married’ but doesn’t feel real yet!

It was 2 weeks before the wedding before it felt real. The day of my hair and make up trial and final dress fitting. It want a freak out moment just a “huh, this is actually happening. I’m standing here in my wedding dress.” And then life went back to crazy and busy. Now I have those “huh, I’m someone’s wife” moments instead.

I eloped, so my “holy crap, I’m getting married” moment came about 1 hour before I left for the court house.
FWIW, I had started planning a big wedding and gave up because of the stress.

For me, it didn’t feel real unti I was actually saying my vows.

pinkrose23: as the day gets closer it starts to really hit you. I was the same way. The day came abd I was so excited and giddy and then I had a panic attack when I arrived at the church, my mom helped calm me down.
You will be fine!!!! 🙂

For me it was when the MUA was done and I looked at myself in the mirror that it truly sunk in “I’m getting married!”
It didn’t really hit me until one day like weeks later Darling Husband was like “this is Soon2ElopeBee, my wife” and I was like oh wow!
Soooooooo don’t worry, your moment will come, who knows when and where or how but…it’ll hit you all of a sudden!

We are 39 days to the wedding and it still doesn’t feel real. Last fitting is happening this Wednesday for my dress…maybe then? I am beyond excited and can’t wait but it’s all just going by.

Even the month before the wedding, I knew it was happening, but it didn’t feel like it was ever going to happen. It felt like it was indefinitely in the future. The day of is so hectic that I was so busy with what we needed to do, and what needed to be where when, etc. Then, all of a sudden, my bridesmaids were gone, and I was standing outside the church doors with my dad and waiting for the music to change. I just remember thinking, “Holy sh#t, this is actually happening?” The rest of the day felt very surreal. I’ve been married 4 weeks, and it still feels surreal in some ways!

- Wedding: October 2014 - Brussels, Belgium
I’m getting married in 37 days and haven’t had an OMG moment yet. Mine is out of the country so maybe when I’m actually packing up my stuff or getting on the plane it will sink in more.

pinkrose23: Tomorrow is my 7 day out mark and it’s getting real. I’m getting sustained feelings of excitement. Eeek! You will too.
