Being truthful, I haven’t really had that “moment” yet! Just tonight I tried on my dress and finally decided on how I’m gonna wear my hair after MONTHS of being the most indecisive bride on the planet lol. I don’t think it will fully hit me until I hear our minister announcing us as husband and wife! I think it’s still going to feel very surreal for weeks after the wedding but I’m guessing that’s normal. I’m just super excited about it all right now!!!

The first was at the bridal shop:  standing in front of the mirror in a wedding gown felt pretty surreal.  Otherwise, this still feels like I’m spending my life (and $$$) planning something that’s just an idea.

Talking to my doctor about going off the pill and taking prenatal vitamins. Moment was like OMG I am getting married and going to be a mom!

@hibees I literally just had that conversation with my doctor and I had a little freak out  moment too! lol

For the most part it just feels like I’m planning and spending $$ on something that’s an idea, just like @bluestockingbride said.

I just signed up for a new gmail account with my married name (no one else has my new name, apparently) and THAT felt really real. 

Our invites are supposed to be delivered on Wednesday from the printers, and I imagine that will fell really real as well.

Not sure if it will actually hit me until the week of, when we are in Philly, getting everything in order.

I had a moment of OMG this is happening when I tried on my dress for the first time when it came in. I thought October would never get here and now its soooooo CLOSE! This will be the first time so many family members and friends will be in the same place at the same time and I am so excited to see it all come together.

I’m not sure I’ll have one of those moments until I’m walking down the aisle…  I hav soooooo much left to do but most of it is stuff you have to do at the last minute, it’s still making me freak out a bit!

I have small ones here and there. A song comes on the radio and I have a glimmer of realization. I think a big one happened today when I realized I was in the double digits. I’m a very low key, non-emotional person, almost robot like. So big epiphanies for me are rare. I might have a “HOLY CRAP IT IS HAPPENING” moment on the day of.

I had mine today! Our thank-you notes arrived, and we had them designed with our married names on them! At the top they say “Thank You” and at the bottom, it says “Chercee & Fiance Hislastname.” Woah. It’s in writing, and there are a hundred of them. Yikes! Not yikes in bad way of course lol just …woah.
