We just passed the 6 month mark, and it still doesn’t feel real to me!  It’s more like I’m constantly floating around in a cloud of wedding planning surrealness.  I’m still waiting for that “holy crap” moment, but I’m thinking that it probably won’t hit me hard until the big day!

I get it everytime we book Lol

But the strongest feeling of “this just got real” was when we booked the church ๐Ÿ˜€

My fiancé and I have been engaged since nov 2011… That real moment hasn’t hit me yet because its been so long it feels like it’s never going to happen! And we have mostly everything done and paid for! Guess it won’t feel real til I’m actually getting ready the day of! Haha ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember reading through the thread when it was first started and getting kinda concerned coz I still hadn’t experienced my ‘this sh!t just got real moment’. I thought I would get it when I tried dresses on or bought my dress, nope. I thought maybe when we signed the contracts with our celebrant, or venue, or cake maker, nope.

Well I just finally just had it and it was from the randomest thing!! I was setting up an email address for my new name (I know, I know it’s still 5+ months away but I wanted dibbs on it to make sure no-one snaps it up before I can officially have it!) while I was setting it up I wasn’t really thinking anything of it, sent a test email to my normal email and as it came into my inbox with sender: Firstname MYNEWLASTNAME I got this weird feeling in my gut and thought holy s#$% this is really happening, I’m actually getting married! Experiencing the most overwhelming feelings of happiness right now! (first thing i thought of, ooh i must head over and tell the bee hahaha)

Just about at the 5 months left to go mark and I’m not sure I really got my “shit just got real” moment. I already sent Save-The-Date Cards and we’ve bought our wedding bands (I try mine on all the time… can’t help myself!) and a lot of the “big stuff” is already done. We ordered our invitations this weekend and should be getting a proof back this week, so maybe actually seeing our invitations in print with our names and wedding date on there will be that moment?! I have no clue. I kinda feel like it won’t really hit me until I’m standing at the altar promising to love this man for the rest of my life. Ahh! Just thinking about it makes me grin! Can’t wait! Is it October yet?

I think it’ll be when we’re putting it all together the day before! I have had a couple second moments, but nothing like “HOLY HELL WE’RE GETTING MARRIED” moments. But I’m sure they’ll come.
