For me, it was the first time my Fh introduced me as his fiance.  I’ve been so used to hearing "girlfriend" but that first time I heard the F word, I got chills!  Wow!  I’m a fiancee and this is for real!

It’s not yet to me at all…not until the ring lands.  Then we’ll see.  I have been firmly entrenched in my "single mom but working" status for the last 5 years and have done fine as is. 

I’ll probably flip out when it happens.

With 2 months to go, it’s still not real to me. But I’m going to be mailing our invitations out next week, so I think once we start getting our RSVP’s back, it will be real to me.

I think it started to feel like "Wow, this is really happening!" when we started to receive RSVP postcards.  It started to really hit me that people were going to be there and WE were going to be the ones getting married!

The moment I saw  my daughter in ‘the dress’ . I knew it was real. We were buying a dress and my ‘baby’ was getting married. I cried (alot) and we celebrated. It was a wonderful day.

Today. Not only did I mail out my invitations today, but I also went to the knot to check that off the list and noticed 52 days until the wedding. 52! OMG!

The e-ring…trying on wedding dresses.  Making a financial committment to vendors this week has also makes it seem real in a concrete way, beyond all the daydream planning I’ve done over the past couple of months.  😉

I still don’t think it has totally hit me. I have moments (like seeing our names printed on the invites) but I think I will be like Mrs. Bee, it will hit walking down the aisle!

The wedding became real at the rehearsal to me. We were all being total goof balls and having a great time (though annoying my wedding planner a bit i think!). It was practicing when we turn to face each other etc that really made it  – "WE’RE GETTING MARRIED TOMORROW!!" to me. I think I was glowing as we finished the rehearsal and went out for dinner.

We have been engaged for a while, but it didt really seem ‘real’ to me until just this past week.  We FINALLY put a deposit on the venue.  We had looked at it at the beginning of the year and knew what date we wanted, but we could never get there to cut a check for them. Now that we have an official date and place its like "wow, im really getting married"  I love it!

Ummmmm about 30 minutes before the wedding =]

 No seriously, it hit me like a train. I had mini realizations in the little months leading up to it, but it felt so freakin’ normal to be planning a wedding. Even after being laced up, I was so la la la about it. Then when everyone was in the room and people were fawning excessively over me, it started to hit me.

I had my first little realization today. We went to the church and met with the priest there. He outlined what we have to do and we talked about timelines for getting all of our paperwork in order. And I was like "omg we have paperwork now!" lol It feels more real after this. Lots of work to do!
