Ok some things have been setting in. Hes having more input, finalizing details with others. Every time something is complete my eyes begin to water. Like oh my gosh this is really happening.
went to the store and picked up my garter and had the hardest time deciding. i decided and i continued to walk down the aisles of the store with a big grin on my face like YES its happening. I picture something really romantic and elegant most of all i picture him waiting for me at the end of the ailse with a big smile on his face… I get so caught up in my daydream that i bump into one of the end caps, like wow who does that? lol
Have you had an “OMG its happening” moment?? When and where??

We got engaged in Feb 2011 and we are getting married June 1, 2012. We didnt’ set our date and have a venue booked until LAST THURSDAY! (Talk about taking our time!).
When I woke up on Friday I had my first “OMG IM GETTING MARRIED FOR REAL!” moment. It felt like my birthday morning, waking up and knowing we finally had a date on a calendar reserved just for us. Since then, it’s been non stop panic trying to being planning, because I have literally done NOTHING since getting engaged. oooh crap.

Hahaha I am excited to be married, but nervous about the wedding! I feel like there is so much to do and I worry so much about it all coming together.
I will be so happy when it’s over and I can call him my husband! 😀

I’m at 8 months right now, but between work (40 hours per week) and school (2 classes this semester) I don’t have much time to freak out… quite yet. I’m sure once we say “Happy New Year” I’ll freak out.
I know you were looking at Windows on the River. Did you decide? That’s my wedding and reception location as well.

Agree with PP I think it’ll hit me more once the new year begins. While I haven’t done much besides the guest list and spreadsheets and what not I do get that moment when I’m doing random things like doing the dishes, brushing my hair or even typing and my ring catches my attention. It’s like “OMG!! He really wants to marry me!!” lol. And after 4 years I think thats a great feeling to have.

I had a “this is real” moment this weekend when I bought my dress, veil, and sash. We have been working slowly on things (my younger sister got married in Sept, so we were waiting for that to happen before we dove into planning). In the past two weekends we have checked off…first registry started, website in progress, save the dates ready to be printed, my shoes/dress/veil/sash purchased. We still need to get some of the biggies…photographer, DJ, videographer, and honeymoon registry done. Best of luck with your planning ladies!

I had my “this is real” moment throughout this past week. I didn’t even have it when I got my dress. I was at someone else’s wedding and it all sunk in. This is going to be me in nine months! My anxiety level is soo high. Everybody is starting to take interest in my planning now, so it is just becoming more concerete.

A couple weeks ago, I was having a mini-melt about the wedding… I think that one was about the dress… And I felt like all the stress and worry and decision-making was driving me crazy. Like, literally driving me crazy! Iwas all curled up in a crying ball of mess, when my wonderful Mr Rocky Point came over and hugged me and said, “when you find yourself feeling stressed about the wedding, instead of picturing how the paper lanterns will look or whether there will be enough candy or whatever, think about all the happy things that you have dreamed about since you were little. Imagine your Dad walking you down the aisle, or your grandmother watching us dance, think about your mom seeing you in your dress, or us wearing our wedding rings finally.” When he said that, my whole body relaxed and I teared up with joy, and immediately started picturing those things. I felt less stressed and more happy and more anchored. That was my OMG moment. one of them! I also have lots of mini-moments throughout the whole planning process. For the duration, we have been focused on planning our reception, just a huge party of awesomeness…. Sometimes I remember that OMG we’re actually getting married! And I start to tear up 🙂 I can’t believe it!
