….because I’m not yet. It still doesn’t seem real to me at all that in less than 30 days (25 to be exact) I’m getting married. Last week I had a dress fitting, today we went and ordered our wedding bands, and I’ve been working on my DIY projects. But it’s still seems so far away or like it’s someone else getting married. Don’t get me wrong-I’m excited and I can’t wait but it just doesn’t seem real to me. Wednesday we are going to get our marriage license and Saturday is our shower. So maybe then it will feel more real.
When I think about the wedding, I get happy and smile but most of the time, I feel like my usual calm, laidback self. I don’t feel like a bride yet. Anybody else feel this way?

It will become real soon enough! I think with the license and the shower you’ll be more excited and anxious. That’s how my BFF was during her planning, and it made for a really great wedding day for her 🙂

I just want to say when I read the title of your post, I wanted to say “never”! Just don’t be nervous! Have a great time! I’m 40 days out and feeling some butterflies, but I was discussing with Fiance, and it still feels surreal, so SI know what you mean. I honestly feel like we’re both the most nervous about having a whole day with people staring just at us! 😉 I don’t think you need to feel stressed. Honestly if you are on top of things…then just enjoy it! You’re marrying someone you love, you’re looking forward to not jus the wedding but the marriage…I say all is good! I do know my Maid/Matron of Honor got super stressed the day before…but I say just take it as it comes, and if you do feel nervous, remember that just a few days before you weren’t, and what’s really changed? You’re going to have a party of a lifetime! 🙂

I never got super stressed. Were there some “moments”? Most definitely! I just think that there is a perception that you have to be stressed to be a bride and you don’t. Enjoy this time and your wedding. Keep plugging away at your to-do list and just relish the moment.

Wow, well – if you’re not stressing, don’t stress that you’re not stressed!! LOL
In all seriousness, some folks are super organized and it sounds like maybe you are one of those people….so relax and enjoy! You’ll probably be nervous the days before so don’t rush it.
I do think you’ll feel like a bride after the shower and the marriage license process. Those are things that take you from planning mode into implmentation mode and that will definitely drive it home!

i’d say if you’re not stressed, that’s fantastic! it hitme when we went to get our marriage license and started talking about merging finances. the actual wedding / ceremony related stuff – not so much.

You dont have to be nervous or stressed to feel like a bride silly Our wedding is the same date, and Im not stressed or nervous either! Honestly, there isnt much reason to be. We got the rings, the marriage license, merged finances, bought a car together, live together, had the showers, bachelor/ette parties, etc, etc, so this is just natural to us. Im sure youll get wedding day butterflies and jitters, but thats normal. Id say embrace the fact that you’re so certain there is no need to be nervous!!

I have been nervous (more like excited/nervous energy) for the past month or so…BUT it didn’t really feel real to me until I had my shower this past weekend. Before then it totally felt like I was planning a party for someone else. I definitely feel like a bride to be now, with 60 days to go!
I have to say ENJOY the not feeling stressed part!
