    I won’t say it isn’t normal, as I’ve seen it plenty here.

    I was the opposite. I was “screw it, if it hasn’t been done, I don’t care!” about a month out.  I think that’s my natural response tho. 🙂

    I’m sure it’ll all be fine! 

    Besides, as long as you have you, him, an officiant and a place… you’re good.  Realistically, though we don’t want it to happen, that’s all you need to be married :).

    @kingbadu:  I’m pretty far away from my wedding so I can’t give you any personal experience but from what I know it is a fairly normal reaction. Getting married is a big step and I think that there is probably a moment in every bride’s planning where the gravity of the commitment they’re going to make hits them. It’s understandable to feel a little overwhelmed by it all. As long as it doesn’t feel like the idea of getting married is wrong, or that the upcoming wedding feels kind of like a shackle (for lack of a better word) around your ankle then I think you’re fine.

    What are you freaking out about? Like “OMG what if the food is messed up/the photog doesn’t show/the flowers are wrong?” freak outs? Or freaking out about not being sure your guy is the right one?

    @kingbadu:  Totally normal! And between the two things I asked about, definitely the one you’d rather be worrying about, right? LOL. Just to put it in perspective a bit. Everything will be okay – pretty much everyone’s wedding has some minor hiccups, but on the day of they’re not even going to seem like a big deal. I mean, having a vendor not show up would be a big deal, but I’m sure you did your research when you picked them and have been in communication since, they’re not going to forget your wedding!

    From what you have said it definitely sounds normal from what I have read here! I wouldn’t worry too much, what you’re feeling is totally normal 🙂

    I didn’t like your poll options becuase yes, it is normal to freak out in some instances but I didn’t freak out for 4 months. I was very stressed, but my actual 2 minutes of cold feet didn’t come until midnight the night before. It went away as fast as it came.

    I didn’t vote because I didn’t really “freak out” about much of anything!  It sounds like you’re in need of things to keep your mind occupied.  You’ve probably spend months and months planning for this wedding and now that everything is done, you’re just sitting and waiting and your brain doesn’t know what to do about it!  Try to find little projects to work on or work on something Not Wedding Related in your downtime.  Just remember, at this point, you’ve done everything you can to prepare and ensure that your wedding day is perfect!  Just sit back, relax, and try to get yourself in the mindset of “Whatever is going to happen will happen” – just control the things that you can and whatever happens that’s out of your control, take a deep breath and try to find the good/humor in it 😉  It will be wonderful no matter what!
