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 Save-The-Date Cards 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. 🙂
