    @MeiFrancis:  it happened to me last week and let me tell you, I FREAKED OUT. And not really in a good way. I think all the stress just got to me And turned me into a complete spaz. I’m less  than two weeks away (eeeep!!) and this shit is like really real now. I’m hung up on the new last name bit, at first I was so excited to become ‘mrs. Weetzie’s man’ and now I’m like – wait, but name is weetzie, it’s always been weetzie, how can I just have a new name?!!? Everyone has assured me that it’s completely normal and blah blah, but I am actually scared. I am going to be someone’s WIFE (and step mother). It doesn’t get any more real than that!!

     

    HOWEVER I am so excited as well! It’s a crazy mash up roller coaster of emotions!! I just keep focusing on the little details and my overall vision for the WEDDING, and not the MARRIAGE so that my poor little brain doesn’t explode.

    @MeiFrancis:  I just had that moment 9 days ago when I sent out final payments. About 2 months ago I was like you..June can take its Time..Now about 20 days out I’m ready. I still need bridal party gifts but for the most part I’m done!!! You’ll find yourself busier these next few months because as you said, shit just got real:)

    Aww congrats on your first moment! 🙂

    i think mine was when we got our invites in last week and my custom wedding band came in the next day. I can’t stop staring at both! It just made everything so real! Let it be known that FI already had to hide my band so I would stop trying it on lol. 

    Side note: Have you had any wedding dreams yet? I had a whack one last night. Something along the lines of the officiant arriving horribly late, my dress was never fitted, makeup lady cancelled and sent her untrained daughter, wedding planner switched my caterer to something terrible, my bridesmaids tried to send me down the aisle with a black crinoline?

    i have no idea what is wrong with my wedding brain Lol

    Getting the plane tickets to fly back to the US for the wedding. Fairly logical… there have been other, weirder, both good and bad holy shit moments, but that was the first.

    Over my hair!  I had a first trial that I just wasn’t blown away by it, but I figured, eh, my expectations were too high or something – not like this really matters.  I let it marinate for a week or so and then suddenly I had a huge breakdown about it, triggered by something totally different (working on escort cards and other crafts with my mom) where I realized IT DOES MATTER TO ME.  I broke down, my mom helped me select a new style my FI loves, and now I’ve got my second hair trial coming up and it finally feels REAL!

    The “OMG SH!T JUST GOT REAL” moment occured when my co-worker came over and said “I got your wedding invitation.” 

    Weird, I know… but I guess it was the reality of knowing that I’m not just talking about this thing that hasn’t happened yet but now I’m asking others to join me for this life changing thing. 

    The tasting made me feel that way too. We’re picking food and talking about our schedule for the wedding day and all of these details that are so real. I always feel like saying “AHHHHHHH!!! I’M GETTING MARRIED!” whenever these moments hit. lol

    @MeiFrancis:  We got engaged late last November.  He was all excited about getting planning and everything while I was in the mode of finishing off the semester of school.  After that I said we should just get through the holidays and my birthday and we could start planning.  Then It’s early february and we haven’t even sent out save the dates!  So I have been working on things here and there and whenever I feel like it. 

    Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.  I graduated from college on May 18th.  The next day I was in tears because I realized that the wedding was only four months away!!!  Holy shit! How did I let that happen? 

    Needless to say, the last two weeks I sped it up into high gear and realized I did a lot more that I thought the last few months and we are right on track. 

    Congrats and good luck!!!

    @MeiFrancis:  I had a moment a couple months ago – and I have a year to go still! We got engaged in December and my parents had an engagement party for us in March. We were sitting together and opening gifts with everyone watching and I had that ‘holy sh*t, this is happening’ moment. It was brief, however, and I’m sure once I get deeper into planning I’ll really feel it!

    Hah, mine just happened this weekend.  I ordered the paper for my origami bouquets, got my dress budget and made my first appointments for dress shopping, sat down and said “holy shit, we’re getting married!”.  You’d think that the first round of deposit checks would have triggered it, but nope 🙂  It only lasted a minute or two though, I’m sure I’ll have other moments later on.

    My moment was yesterday when we picked up our Marriage license!

    Seeing both our names and info and everything on the piece of paper that will literally make us husband and wife was pretty intense!
