When I was talking about it with my grandma last night. We were talking about dresses and where to have the reception.

When I went to the photographer’s website and started listing our “must have” photos on the worksheet.

It really didn’t get real until the rehearsal. I was planning and buying and DIYing and just in a wedding haze. That’s the first time I was able to just sit down and think about it. Hey, we’re getting married! Wow! And the next day, it was done and then I couldn’t believe it was over.

I haven’t had one yet. Only 50 days before the wedding so I’m not sure why it hasn’t hit me yet. My Maid/Matron of Honor and her DH(GM) threw us a HUGE engagement party at their home last weekend and it still didn’t seem real to me. I’m sure it will all hit me like a ton of brick very soon.

Honestly, truly?  It hit me like a ton of bricks JUST before I walked down the aisle.  I was like…..holy shit, I’m about to get married!!!!!!!!!

All the rest had just seemed like party planning.  It was an amazing feeling!

It hasn’t yet…when I try to think about it I feel a wall going up around my brain and my tummy – I am nervous about it hitting. I think for me it’ll be a juliepants moment – when there is nothing left to think about and I’m right there. Which is very soon….oh look, there go the walls Laughing

@LittleRiver:  I agreed! I got a big knot in my stomach! When I handed them over to the post office I felt like it would be a life changing moment but the lady just looked at me and said “Thanks” lol

I keep going in and out of the “holy shit this is happening” mode. Some days it feels really real, like when I said yes to the dress, and when talking about our ceremony, but then other times it still feel surreal!
