When Fiance & I first got engaged & picked our date back in October, August 18th seemed like some distant far off way in the future date. And now, it’s only 18 days away (well, if you don’t count the actual day of, 19 if you do)!
August 18th brides, are we feeling anxious/excited/stressed/happy/an all around emotional basket case yet?!

I’m about 70% excited and 30% anxious. I still have a few things to get done, but I’m pretty confident they will get done in time.
We’re picking up our rings tomorrow and I think that will make it more real. To see our names inside wedding rings!! It sounds so grown-up 🙂 I can’t wait.
We only chose our date in May so our wedding day has never been that far away, but July really flew by. I can’t believe our month will be here in an hour and a half (Icelandic time)

Hello August Brides!
@BlueRhino: The big day is on August 18th as well. I am excited, anxious, stressed and ready to be married!! We picked our date back in March 2011 which was sooooo far away. I am confident the planning has been completed yet the details are never done, such as escort cards LOL

Oh I’m the 19th! So yay same weekend! I’m so excited and just a little stressed about finalizing all the details and finishing up the DIY stuff in the next couple of weeks.
I totally agree about how fast the time went! We set our date at the end of November last year and August sounded so far away.

OMG is all I have to say! It’s freakin August already!! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??? Work has me stressed I have so much to finish before I leave.
I don’t have much to do, finalizing a lot of stuff. Programs and welcome bags next on my list. I took the week off before the wedding thank God, I will need it.

@angela85: I agree with your 70/30 split.
I’m traveling for the next few days, then just when I get home Fiance is traveling until the Saturday before the wedding, so that’s adding a little bit of stress. We just have some finalization and minor projects remaining though.

It’s crazy its only like 2 weeks away!! I’m more excited now since I had my hair and make-up trial last night. It defiently makes things more real, but I’m still stressed over my bridesmaids being horrible and not showing up to stuff. But only 2 more weeks and I dont have to worry anymore!!

I honestly didn’t think it was going to happen to me but I have officially gone into panic mode. We have less than 2 weeks until people start arriving for pre-wedding festivities and I feel like I have so much left to do between now and then. I guess that’s what happens when you plan a wedding from the other side of the country while you’re in law school. 😉
