YAY! That is exciting. Sometimes I have private like “ohmigosh this man and I are going to spend the rest of our lives together” moments, but I haven’t had a wedding one yet. Your embossing skills are pretty awesome, too. Yay only 4 months for you!

I’m totally cracking up right now because I had the EXACT SAME thing happen this week! I had them designed, return-address-stamped, received the magnets AND even put them all in and addressed them but the second I had those pesky wedding-ring stamps in my hands it didn’t feel “real“. I mean really REAL. I emailed a Bee I have become friends with (and who happened to be the one who designed our STD’s!) and asked her if I was insane for having a freak-out over the stamps. It really does just make it so much more real. So thank goodness someone else feels the same way!!! 😀

OMG You just described my week (including the “Oh well, I’m gonna send my STDs late”). We’re still in the holy moly are we sure we wanna spend this much money stage but I think I see the light at the end of (this) tunnel. Congrats on getting them out!

@chrystalynn11: We’re in the same situation! We bought our house 2 years ago, we’ve been together for 4, have two dogs, joint accounts, the whoooole she-bang. Even at our engagement I was excited but not like some of the stories I read on here, I didn’t cry, I didn’t scream–I knew it was coming, shoot we got the ring together (there’s NO way I’d trust him to pick it out, haha!). My wedding dress shopping was anything but exciting, I got it 6 months before I got the ring (with permission, of course!) because I worked at a bridal shop, it closed and I knew what I wanted. So really it’s just kind of been one foot in front of the other. I’m thinking maybe at my first fitting I’ll feel that “bride” feeling (God I hope so…).

Reading that I sound like a bad bride, as though I’m not excited to marry him but truly I am, I’ve just not had that “bridal” feeling. *sigh.

WOO-HOOOO!!!!  Congrats!!  Enjoy this “yes! we’re getting married!” moment.

Sure, most standards might say that’s too late to send STD’s, but if I were one of the guests got a STD card now I wouldn’t think negatively of it, I’d understand planning weddings and the whole process is busy and stressful and complicated.

YAY!! And nicely done I might add.  I’m glad that you decided to go on as planned, and I hope that you find a job soon.  Good luck with saving your pennies on things. Borrow what you can, diy, and look for great bargains and all will be well. 🙂
