There have been several moments from when Kyle popped the question to now where I have had to ask myself: Is this actually happening? Are we seriously getting married in a few months?
In so many ways it seems so surreal. Some days I forget that we’re getting married, and then I’ll look at my left hand and see my ring, or I’ll start to get all weepy while watching wedding shows on Slice or TLC, and remember, “Holy man, I’m getting married. This is going to be real! No more just pretending! OMG MY NAME IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT!”
It’s still weird picturing myself in my big, beautiful dress (which I’m still impatiently waiting for its arrival), walking down the aisle, and saying “I Do” to the most amazing man in the world. I have to pinch myself and remind myself that it isn’t a dream.
So very slowly is everything coming together. This past weekend we picked out the tuxes and wedding bands; just another assurance that yes, this is real, especially buying the bands.
Sorry for turning WTW into some sort of sappy ridiculousness. I’m still kind of in shock that Kyle and I are finally getting married.
And just an FYI: In no way is this a Cold Feet post, lol!
So married ladies, or those about to be married, did you have similar feelings?

I felt like that a lot. Honestly, I STILL have moments like “Whoa. I’m MARRIED. Crazy …” And it’s been almost 3 years :)
When we bought our bands, Nathan wore his whenever he was home, to “practice” …
Hehehe I’m giggling about Holly’s comment and Nathan wearing his band for “practice”!
I’m sure feelings like these are TOTALLY normal! Your big day is going to be here super soon!
Honestly for me it just felt like the next step, like it was supposed to be happening. But wow, wearing that big white dress definitely does something to you.
How exciting! Every married friend that i have, had those same thoughts. My good friend, Shan, felt her engagement was too short. When you think about it, she is right. For years, your husband is called boyfriend, but the word “fiancée” only last a year or two….if you are lucky. Then….boom….he turns into your husband. So, it goes from boyfriend to fiancée to husband….it goes by real fast! But you are so lucky! I’m so happy for you!
