Of course during this whole wedding planning process I’ve known we’re getting married and having a wedding. Though the reality of it is really starting to sink in now. We just got our invitations, we’re doing the last big things today (cake tasting and flowers), and I’m having a shower tomorrow. Oh and we got our first two registry gifts that weren’t engagement presents. So, it’s a bit like, wow this is really happening huh. Plus, as weird as it sounds, leaves are starting to change color, which is really sinking it in that it’ll soon be fall, which is when our wedding will happen.
It’s all very strange feeling…exciting and strange. Plus, there’s been so many other things happening–in the process of moving and we just got a car (two things that had stupid unnecessary complications), which is making everything else seem a bit surreal and weird. Sometimes it feels like I’m in a “go” mode so I don’t really take it in. Then, suddenly I stop and think hey…this is really happening. Whoa.
Does anyone else feel like this?
(and as one more thought…I just selected “October 2011” as the board to post to, and it felt like, whoa…October 2011 is really soon!)

Hey! Totally understand where you are coming from. We are getting married Oct 30th and it seems like everyday there is something to do for the wedding. Last night we went to look at limos and my god.. so expensive for only needing the service for 3 hours. Im getting to the stress point and money factor. Everything just seems to have such a huge price tag. No matter what you do.. hundreds here..thousands there. Ive been doing a lot of DIY projects (which I should be doing once I get off here..) I have my first fitting on Aug 7th and my shower on Aug 14th. I think for me thats when everything will hit home. I feel it now.. but as time gets even closer the realization will kick in that its just right around the corner! What colors do you plan on using? and what style is your dress? its all very exciting! I truly cannot wait for the wedding 🙂 🙂 My biggest concern is that we are having the ceremony outside at 530 and im worried about there not being enough light It at that time. It will probably start getting dark at 430 🙁 Options were to meet up before the wedding to do photos but my Fiance doesnt want to break the tradition of not seeing me until I walk down the aisle. If the ceremony can not be outside, the inside of our venue will be set up just incase (but im really hoping for outside)

Yes! I have a shower today – seeing all those people gathered to celebrate me is really going to hit home… I am nervous already.

Yes, I know what you mean. I’ve been single for so long and I stop I think about it, I’m going to be married in two months…feels exciting, but scary too. Not as scary that I don’t want to do it, but scary as in this is a big life changing thing.

For me it’s all these plans still percolating in my head and I want to do them but money’s super tight now and aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. I literally feel like I’ve got NOTHING done.
I also still feel like its a bit away; one more month and then I’ll start really freaking out.

Working on the invitations and the fact that my showers and bachelorette party coming up has it really feeling real.
@bebefly: I know what you mean about money. it’s so annoying. I have been trying to pick up stuff all along, but there is just so much to buy. I will be glad when it is all over!

@judithsr: Most definitely!!! We had a long engagement, so it seemed like our day would never get here. Now it’s a bit more than 2 months away. It was a ‘wow’ moment for me when The Knot told me it was under 100 days!
I’m really impatient and want the day to get here, but it’s nice now that it feels “real”. I didn’t like making the larger decisions and was afraid FIs family wouldn’t like what I chose. Now I get to book nail appointments, look forward to two showers in the next month, watch people buy stuff off our registry, think about wearing my wedding dress for REAL, and buy bridesmaid gifts!
Yay ladies!!! We’re almost there!

Yes it is! This must be the year for weddings for our friends and families (like 4 in the past year)….and this weekend we just went to the last one before our wedding….and everyone kept saying to us, well next time it will be you guys doing this!
Yea…..I’m freaking out completely!

OMG YES. Freaking out. WE are in the middle of buying a house (by him, and 2 hours from me -LDR), I need to find a new job before the wedding/move, and of course the wedding…. all in a short 2 months! Seriously…who gets a new job, a new house, and a new husband all in 8 short weeks. Aghhhh.

(Sorry I’m swooping in, but I’m only a week away from October!) 🙂
I feel the same way–even after showers, things arriving at the house, getting my wedding band and dress–I STILL don’t feel like it’s actually happening! I don’t think it will actually set in until those doors open and I see that everyone is there for us. Everyday it gets more real but I still feel like I’m living in a fantasy!
