We are 12 days out and it’s kinda starting to hit me. We leave for Hawaii on Friday and I think at that point, as I’m carrying my dress through the airport, I’m going to be like holy shittttt.

Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night next to my fiance, when I stay over,I think to myself “I get to do this forever – this is unbelievable.” Sometimes it just hits me on the train ride home from work or at random times. 🙂

witchbaby:  summerbride2016:  Two weeks to go here too! And it STILL hasn’t hit me really…I have little moments where it feels real…like my bridal shower. But now I’m back to feeling like it isn’t. We’ve been engaged since September 2014 so it’s just been a distant idea for so long. I’m sure it’ll hit me the night before at least!!

I’ve had a couple of those moments!  Most recently was today, I purchased my wedding gown and as I stood on the podium looking in the mirror it totally hit me.

Right before my fiancé and I walked onto the dance floor arm-in-arm together as the intro to our song played at the dance studio where we’re taking lessons.  We looked at one another and giggled like kids and he said, “This is so fun!  I’m so excited for all of this!”  And I said, “Me too!”  And he was all smiles and blushing and so cute and I threw in a, “You are so hot!” And kissed him on the cheek just before we took the floor to practice our first dance all the way through.  

I suddenly realized, in that tiny moment, how close we were getting to our very big moment and it was so exciting.  😊  

Nearly eight years in the making by the time we get married and I’m ready to get the show on the road!

I’m getting married in less than a week now and today I was sitting on the couch and had a bit of a moment thinking about how at this time next week I will be a married woman! Even though it’s starting to sink in a little bit I don’t think its really hit me yet though. I’m running on no sleep and working night shifts (huge mistake thinking I could handle this before a wedding!) so right now I’m just trying to get by and make it through the next few days. I think once I’m finished working and can let myself get into full wedding mode it will really hit me that I’m getting married!

I’d say the first time it really, *really* hit me was when I had my bridal shower.

Then again, when I mailed out the wedding invitations.

Then when RSVPs started coming in!

And wedding gifts have started to show up on our doorstep; I always have one of those moments when that happens.

Looking at all of these, it seems to be the moments that involve other people – guests getting their invites, sending gifts, etc. Probably because I’ve dreamed about my wedding for so long, but now that other people are in on it, I know it’s really happening!

summerbride2016:  I think it will sink in more when we’re less than a month out, but as of now…during my bachelorette party, I was dancing my ass off. I stopped, looked at my Maid/Matron of Honor and said “OMG I’M GETTING MARRIED!!!!” 🙂

GymnastQt009:  OMG, I feel ya! I think I’m getting married a couple of days before you (5/19) and we’ve been engaged since August 2014. I feel like I have failed at planning because I keep thinking everything is so far away, because it was for such a long time, and now it’s about to slap me in the damn face. AHHHH!! Good luck!

ksn1219:  Exactly!! We keep talking about it with everyone, and I feel like it seems more real to them than it does to us haha. My boss said to me like 10 times on Friday “You’re about to be a married woman!” And I was just like …..yeah. Lol.

Good luck to you as well! We’re almost there!!!

I didn’t really have that moment. Mine was oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’m married. That started the day after the wedding. It has been a month and a half and I still think that. “My husband” still sounds strange coming out of my mouth.  Lol I remember  when my friend got married a year ago and said this.  I was laughing at her. It has been all good. We are still honeymooning, but it has been too funny.

I was just wondering this! We’ve been engaged for nearly 6 months, have 1 year 3 months till the wedding, so I still feel like it isn’t real! Even though we talk about our married life all the time, and we’ve been together nearly 6 years! I wonder when my moment will be 🤔
